Who does ABC call when it wants an audience to decorate like “Desperate Housewives? How about when CBS desires to gives its viewers decorating tips on a budget, or Walmart needs to give millions of shoppers a look at the ultimate dorm room?

When Macy’s demands a welcoming show home or Lowe’s needs to break down quick and affordable ways to add style, who’s on speed dial? When Uptown magazine needs the perspective of a decorating expert, Essence spotlights a fabulous bathroom or Ebony looks to throw a grand holiday party, whom do they all call?

In every instance, that shout-out is likely to go to Helen Bailey, who won international notice as host of the BET Networks series “Urban Livin'” for three years.

Before that, she had a national audience with her popular “Make Your Home a Haven” segments on Clear Channel Radio, and a series of well-attended seminars that included the beloved “Keeping Up with the Joneses While Decorating on a Budget.”

Having teamed with Macy’s to design a spectacular show home featured at the National Urban League conference, Bailey has also established working partnerships with national brands and retailers such as Walmart, Lowe’s, P&G, IKEA, Pier 1 Imports, Ace Hardware and Sherman Williams.

Always innovative with high-impact energy, unique style and flair, Bailey style’s is vintage glam with a modern twist. Whether it’s a small apartment, large loft or a single-family home, Bailey considers it essential to “make your home your haven, and love your surroundings.”
