Jen Bertrand, KC's own Design Star!

Each Sunday at 8:00 (central time) on HGTV, we have been cheering on Kansas City-native, Jen Bertrand, as she competes on this season’s Design Star.

Jen, interior designer and owner of Bertrand Designs with husband, Chris, began Bertrand Designs five years ago. They provide artwork, murals and faux finishes. In fact, Jen has been a very good friend to Portfolio, designing a special paint finish for Geri’s office and exhibiting her art in our showroom.

On Design Star, Jen and the other contestants each have a weekly design challenge and a budget to design everything from dining and living rooms, to themed designs from around the world, and their living space for this season—a Nashville lakehouse! The judges eliminate a contestant each week, and in the end, viewers choose a winner (think American Idol meets HGTV), who becomes the host of a new HGTV show.

Good luck, Jen! Everyone at Portfolio can’t wait to see what you’ll design next!
