Luxury Home Designer Michel Smith Boyd Showcases Clever Hacks to Achieve High-End Home Looks on a Budget in New HGTV Series ‘Luxe for Less’
Series Premieres Thursday, Dec. 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV and discovery+
Luxury home designer Michel Smith Boyd, whose exquisite style graces some of the most expensive homes in the country, will share clever budget hacks to achieve high-end looks for a fraction of the cost in the new HGTV series, Luxe For Less. Premiering on Thursday, Dec. 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the series will follow Michel and his ingenious team – designer Kai Williamson, maker Anthony Elle and licensed general contractor Laura Green – as they share insider tips and creative solutions that maximize clients’ cash. By repurposing furniture, purchasing easily repairable “scratch and dent” appliances and employing savvy shopping techniques, Michel will bring upscale design within reach. Luxe For Less also will be available to stream on discovery+ on Thursdays beginning Dec. 1.
“For years I’ve designed for celebrities and wealthy clients with big budgets, but the majority of us have to prioritize differently,” said Michel. “I believe that everyone deserves luxury in spite of budget, so my team and I have discovered great ways to deliver the gasp-worthy spaces families’ crave.”
In the series opener, Michel will tackle a sizable renovation for homeowners who say they want “a yacht life on a pontoon budget.” They’re ready to renovate the entire first floor of their outdated home, including the kitchen, living room, office and more, with rich finishes, stylish modern lighting and new flooring—but their budget is tight. Michel and team will step in to strategize, finding brilliant solutions to every design obstacle and challenging price point, so that in the end, they deliver the breathtaking results the family will love.
