Behind the Scenes at HSN

Friends:

John and I have just finished our three-show appearance at the HSN campus in St. Petersburg, Florida where we debuted our two new gorgeous bedding collections, Summer in Provence and Regent’s Park. Think sheets, quilts, decorative pillows, and more!

6am.

11am.

3pm.

Guess which show was the most difficult?

Exclusive to HSN, our two collections were inspired by our far-flung adventures. Our goal was to bring the relaxed, layered magic of the South of France and the gorgeous, flower-filled gardens of London right into your own home, all sketched and hand painted by John. Stunning embroidery, cross stitching, quilting, dressmaker details including ruffled flanges and contrast welting, and printed sheets—all in 100% cotton for easy-breezy care—are signatures of the collections. Think you will find any of that in a department store? Good luck!

Be sure to check out the Madcap Cottage bedding selections on HSN.com, and set sail for sizzle…

  • Whew, a 6am show is a killer because you have to arrive at 4am for hair and makeup and a meeting with your host, but it’s all worth it. Happily, Jason’s parents live in Tampa—just across the bay from HSN—so the early-morning drive to the studios was traffic free.

  • Time to steam in the clothes in our private green room. The green rooms at HSN are very comfortable and loaded with snacks, coffee machines, juice, and more.

  • We love the posters that line the hallways outside of the HSN studios. It really is fun at HSN.

  • Jason catches up on social media early morning in our green room, double fisting with his computer and iPhone. The TVs above Jason not only show the live HSN feed but also sales figures.

  • Here are portraits of the HSN hosts upon a wall outside the studios. The hosts are amazing and can multitask like nobody’s business.

  • Here’s John on the night before our on-air appearance when we did a walk-through of the Madcap Cottage set. The HSN set team is amazing!

  • And we are ready to go! Note the headboards covered in the Madcap Cottage for Robert Allen @Home fabric Cove End, also available at HSN.

  • Here’s Bed #2. And, yes, the window treatments are also part of the Madcap Cottage for HSN collection. One-stop shop!
