Carmeon Hamilton won HGTV’s Design Star: Next Gen (and our hearts) with her bold, beautiful, and bohemian designs that stayed true to her style. Her mantra is to elevate the everyday, and she describes her aesthetic as modern, bohemian, cultured, textured, and soulful. “Throughout this competition, I created spaces that were more and more ‘me,'” she said on the show. “I laid it all out on the table here.”
That approach worked, and Carmeon beat out seven other designers, making her the winner of $50,000 and her own upcoming HGTV show at just 35 years old.
