Leslie Hart-Davidson, HDD Studios
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Leslie Hart-Davidson is a nationally recognized professional interior designer, author, and owner of HDD Studios in Michigan. Leslie holds a B.A. in interior design and has nearly two decades of industry experience, but credits her family for the desire to enter the world of design. The Hart family practiced real estate flipping while she was a child, so her calling for home improvement came early.
Leslie lives and breathes interior design not only in her successful design business, but also through her extensive writing career. She has written two home improvement books full of snark and great content: Remodeling Your House without Killing Your Spouse in 2014 and It’s Not Your Room, it’s You in 2016. Leslie’s most recent book is a combination kitchen design/memoir/cookbook titled Food is Love that will be showcased during the 2023 season with two cooking stage seminars to feed your soul.
The design philosophy Leslie adopted when she started her business more than 20 years ago is straightforward: design is a democracy, not a dictatorship. This guiding principle helps audience members and clients better understand design language and the psychology behind how they live in their homes. Her design stage seminar “The Reveal: Hilarious, Heartfelt and Headshaking Stories from a Professional Interior Designer” teaches lessons from her upcoming 4th book with free digital downloads to help attendees take action with their space. When she’s not on stage or on camera, you can find Leslie posting witty lifestyle content to her Facebook and YouTube pages and whipping up delightful meals in her charming 140-year-old Michigan farmhouse.
