On Thursday, November 21, 2019, San Diego interior designer Darcy Kempton of Simply Stunning Spaces appeared as the guest designer on one of HGTV’s highest-rated shows, “Flip or Flop.”

When Tarek El Moussa found the perfect house to buy in Newport Beach but his ex-wife interior designer Christina Anstead wasn’t able to design it due to her maternity leave, he brought in interior designer Darcy Kempton to get the job done. Darcy worked alongside the TV personality and real-estate guru to design the home featured on the season 8 episode entitled “Million-dollar Cookie Cutter.”

“The style of the home I designed for the episode is Contemporary Coastal Chic, undoubtedly inspired by the natural landscape of Southern California. It incorporates so many of my favorite design elements, including natural stone textures, rich wood tones, crisp and clean lines, geometric shapes, and subtle pops of color. I can’t wait for you all to see it!”

Darcy has been designing homes in the San Diego for over 15 years and is the owner of local showroom and design firm Simply Stunning Spaces ( Darcy is also gearing up for the release of “Instant Dream Home,” an online course based on her book of the same name.

It will give members the tools, resources, advice, and confidence they need to bring their design ideas to life – and as a result, dramatically improve the quality of their lives.
