When you think of design – the flair of combining art and technical science comes to mind. Paige Rein, has been turning hidden potential into creatively inspired home renovation and design long before she launched ‘Rein With An Eye For Design’ in 2006. A designer is generally great – if not magnificent – at a multitude of crafts including problem solving, lateral thinking, great communication and a high aptitude to blend highly functional home inspiration with fabulous artistic flair.
Most importantly, a successful business endeavor meeting clients’ needs from large–scale renovation plans to sprucing up an existing room with new fixtures is fueled by a spark of intelligent design and passion to inspire and breathe new life into a home. Design is truly about intelligent transformation – and none best than Paige Rein’s savvy startup success to illustrate how passion and innovation launched her into national acclaim as HGTV’s design maven on Hidden Potential, Curb Appeal, and The Hook Up. Her inspirational design has captured a strong following and enabled her to redefine home design one client at a time.

How I Got Started:
I got started working for friends and family – helping with design problems ranging from choosing the best bedding to creating renovation plans for new kitchens.
Best Success Story:
Some of my best interactions are when people feel they’ve made their houses great without spending a lot of money or doing anything truly drastic. I love helping people realize that everyone does have a personal style – it’s just a matter of finding it!
#1 Tip for Newbies:
If there is something you’re good at that helps people, you’ve won. Start doing it for free at once – don’t wait until you have the degree, website, storefront, etc. in place – just do it and you’ll learn from each “free” customer enough to be worth much more than you think.
