    We're breaking down the hot design trend of global decor with experts, Taniya Nayak and creators of AphroChic, to find out how we can create global style in our homes.

    On this episode of MyFixitUpLife.Our trek starts with HGTV and Food Network designer Taniya Nayak. From House Hunters on Vacation to Restaurant: Impossible to the Billion Dollar Block, Taniya Nayak is never at rest unless she is on the move.

    Known for her sunny smile and sharp eye, Taniya Nayak’s knack for bringing rich textures and unexpected finishes together with practical, real-life functionality has made her a go-to expert. She is currently a part of the HGTV series 'House Hunters on Vacation' and as a featured designer on Food Network's 'Restaurant: Impossible.'

    And we change planes and go ship-to-shore and more with AphroChic’s ever-eclectic Jeanine Hays and husband Bryan Mason. Taking her inspiration from the world over, Jeanine sends us postcards from the edge of design.

    Offering home decor products inspired by cultures around the globe, AphroChic sets out to prove that ethnic heritage and culture can go hand in hand with the luxurious and the modern. To embody their personal vision of a new kind of design the two coined the phrase, “Modern.Soulful.Style.” – design that embraces culture and the unique admixture of the traditional and the contemporary that helps to define us all. Jeanine and Bryan are the authors of REMIX: Decorating with Culture, Objects and Soul.

    in Entertainment

    This mission is makeover takeover!
    Restaurant: Impossible designer and part-time ninja Taniya Nayak turns the tables on us and takes over the show. It’s all hands on deck when we’re joined by Restaurant mission leader, taskmaster, tough guy, chef and sharp business man Robert Irvine.
    And, because no makeover takes shape without tools, tear-down and terrific work, contractor Tom Bury of Division9 – Design takes a break from his round-the-clock makeover run to talk construction.
    And, one marital issue is resolved, when we both agree that we should finally replace the front door to our 100+ year old American Foursquare. This brings up a new issue of deciding on the type/ kind/features we want for the door. The solution? Well, we’ve been using a program on Therma-Tru’s website called My Saved Doors, which helps us share our door ideas with each other. Also, we’re trying  to stay young without finding The Fountain Of Youth by stocking up on a new antioxident-rich drink, Modjo Life.
    This message will NOT destruct in 30 seconds. It’s all happening on this week’s MyFixitUpLife.
