Designing Texas

Jocelyn White and Buddy Coronado had a dream in 2001: To create a local Home & Garden show that celebrates the Homes, Gardens, Landscapes and Lifestyles of Texas. “Designing Texas” was the syndicated result, followed in short order by “Designing America,” which aired nationally for seven years on Mark Cuban’s HDNet. Numerous awards and accolades followed in their wake. With the economic volatility of the past few years, Jocelyn and Buddy decided to bring the show home to its roots and “Designing DFW” is the result. Working closely with Dallas-Fort Worth innovators in home design and decor, landscape and garden gurus and lifestyle leaders, the show has expanded. Throughout its various changes and incarnations, however, the Mission remains the same: Upscale Living with a Down-Home Heart!

Show Host

For 20 years, I have been doing my Home & Garden TV program called “Designing Texas.”  It followed on the heels of another show I created called “Hot On! Homes.”  While the latter was all about selling mass production new homes, “Designing Texas” was created to celebrate the Homes, Gardens, Landscapes, and Lifestyles of The Lone Star State.  I have interviewed some of the most interesting and innovative homebuilders, architects, homeowners, and realtors to be found anywhere.  I’ve come away with award-winning shows and fascinating perspectives on how to turn a house into a home.  
During those 20 years, I also spent 8 years doing “Designing America” on Mark Cuban’s HDNet.  A revamp of some of those programs is currently airing under the “Designing Texas” banner each Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. on The CW33.  All those shows have taught me a deep appreciation for the art of furnishing a home or landscaping a yard.  Fantastic homes and why people gravitate to certain styles and comfort levels are interesting.  So are their philosophies.
