Local Designer Helps Launch Extreme Series

Vanessa Price of Cade Republic in Edom is Senior Design Producer of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition which returns to HGTV Sunday, February 16. Season 10 is hosted by Jesse Ferguson and features on camera designers Breegan Jane, Carrie Locklyn, and Darren Keefe. The original series was hosted by Ty Pennington from 2003 to 2012 on ABC.

The series showcases great stories, inspired volunteers, and home renovations for families who give back to their communities. The whole-home overhauls include interior, exterior, and landscaping — all completed within seven days while the family is sent away for a week.

Price spent this past year splitting time between Edom and Los Angeles and helped get the show’s reboot back up and running. This is her sixth season with the show.

Price works with the off-camera design team under the direction of Veronica Valenica. They gather family information for design pitches, do prep work and research, order materials, and help execute the interior design of the homes with the build team.

"I lead the Mosley Family episode (in the February 16 slated premiere) and (the upcoming) Washington Family episode with special guest Ty Pennington. Yes, he is sunshine in person, talented, and handsome to boot," she says.

Price’s specialty areas include reintroduction of the families sentimental items, kitchens and appliances, and warm functional design.

"Our Extreme design team is talented, kind, and intensely hard working," she says. "It is an incredibly rewarding job."

Her design business, Cade Republic, offers a local version of this to clients in Northeast Texas. She also has a small shop of well-curated home decor and holistic gifts located at 8261 FM 279 in downtown Edom. Winter hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Saturday or shop by appointment.

Price is hosting an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition pre-premiere party on Saturday February 8 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
