Home Town host Erin Napier likes to get a little background and personal history on her clients and families before renovation work begins — to help get a feel for the kind of design, features and aesthetic choices that might work best in their home. Here are a few insights provided by client Mia Walker featured in the episode titled "Small Town Life for a Growing Family".

Erin: Tell us about each person who will be living in this house. What do you love to do? What are you each passionate about?

Mia: I have my titles in this household — from mommy, to maid, to chef and, last but not least, chau­ffeur. I'm passionate about living and loving all of what life has to off­er.

Taylor, my first born, loves to bother her 9-year-old little brother. She is currently pursuing a career in the healthcare industry as a future nurse. Bryce, my 9-year-old, loves playing video games, the computer, and playing basketball. He’s got some creative talents too. I keep all his drawings.

Erin: How would you describe your home and personal style?

Mia: Traditional, comfortable, and family oriented with a splash of vibrant color! I especially love emeralds and reds.
