Meet The New ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ Design Team
Designers Breegan Jane, Darren Keefe and Carrie Locklyn are ready to get to work on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition!
You’ve probably already heard the exciting news that Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is back, and that Jesse Tyler Ferguson will host the iconic renovation show. Now, two big questions remain: who are the families that will be featured in each episode and who are the designers helping bring their dreams to life? Today, we can answer one of those questions. Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new Extreme Makeover: Home Edition design team!
Interior designer and California native, Breegan Jane will make her HGTV debut on the network’s highly anticipated reboot of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition hosted by Jesse Tyler Ferguson, slated to premiere in early 2020. An entrepreneur, Breegan has had great success with multiple business ventures in interior design, real estate development and lifestyle expertise.
Breegan’s creative efforts have generated a thriving social media presence and a flourishing interior design business. Having honed her design skills initially as a creative director and marketing professional for a luxury yacht manufacturer, Breegan now devotes her time to design projects which run the gamut from celebrity and commercial properties to lavish restaurants and large-scale remodels.
Breegan is the quintessential career mom who manages to balance busy work life with her highest priority and greatest love: her two young sons. When she isn’t spending time with her children, she dedicates her time to the non-profit organization, World Vision, which provides aid/resources to help women and children in Africa. Through World Vision, she recently helped funda newly commissioned girls’ dormitory and secondary school in Kenya. She travels the globe with the organization as an ambassador of hope and change agent for underserved communities around the world.
Los Angeles-based designer Darren Keefe will make his HGTV debut on the network’s highly anticipated reboot of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition hosted by Jesse Tyler Ferguson, slated to premiere in early 2020.
Born in Northern Ireland to a long line of Irish craftsmen, Darren first developed his love for woodworking after building a Pinewood Derby Racer with his father as a child. As a teenager, Darren assisted local contractors on job sites where he learned the basics of building. When he moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting, he continued his training by working alongside a general contractor specializing in kitchen and bathroom remodels.
Over the years, Darren found himself inspired by the design process, which ultimately led to the birth of his Los Angeles-based design company, Drumcree Designs, in May 2017. His current client roster includes local businesses, prominent interior designers and celebrities who commission one of a kind, hand-crafted furniture pieces— requests ranging from welding to fine woodworking projects.
Thrilled at the opportunity to showcase his artistry to a national audience, Darren looks forward to changing lives on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, one house/design at a time.
Interior designer and New Jersey native, Carrie Locklyn will make her HGTV debut as a designer on the network’s highly anticipated reboot of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition hosted by Jesse Tyler Ferguson, slated to premiere in early 2020.
As a designer, professional organizer and lifestyle expert, Carrie is known for her fresh and innovative take on design style, renovation, and homemaking. Carrie was most recently featured as the lead designer on the Travel Channel’s hit TV show, Hotel Impossible. Her transitional design style— influenced by her travels —mixes classic lines with earthy undertones, creating spaces which are timeless, functional and ready to “live in.”
When Carrie is not traveling for design, she helps local homeowners and businesses in New Jersey update their spaces through accessible designs and practical organization with her company GIDGliving, a boutique interior design, home-organizing and certified staging firm.
When she isn’t on the jobsite, Carrie loves to cook, garden, unwind at the beach and spend time with her husband Sky, and son, August.
