Allow HGTV’s Kortney Wilson To Refresh Your Zoom Backdrop On Today’s Episode of Let’s Talk About, Our New Podcast

“I think we are definitely seeing stuff with the office. People are paying more attention to having an actual… space.” 

Whether or not your reasoning for creating an at-home office space was inspired by a sudden closure at work or a long-awaited decision to separate your WFH life from everything else, it’s more important than ever to set yourself up for healthier work habits.
If anyone knows this, it’s Kortney Wilson – a face you may recognize as the co-host and lead designer of HGTV‘s hit show, Masters of Flip. Wilson grew up in Northern Ontario, but with an eye on a country music career, she moved to Nashville to pursue her dreams.

Unsurprisingly, her immediate success led to a lengthy career in show business full of record deals and reality shows. Along with her husband of the time, Dave Wilson, Kortney began to flip houses – mostly in pursuit of making money in-between gigs. Together, the duo flipped over 125 homes.
Since their separation, Wilson has begun managing flips herself and has founded Kort & Co, a line of stylish and affordable home products that are sold across Canada. As an award-winning realtor, TV show host, author and entrepreneur, she really does it all.
Following six years of Masters of Flip, Wilson has moved on to a brand new HGTV series, Making it Home, which is only one reason why we’re excited to have her on our new podcast, Let’s Talk About.
In her chat with Editor-in-Chief Elise Gasbarrino, Wilson gives pro tips on how t0 evoke feeling in your home and how to make it a comfortable place to be, especially during the pandemic. Plus, she provides you with simple ways to perfect your Zoom background – something we all need to refresh this season.
Besides sharing her best advice on how to master the lighting in your home, Wilson tells you how to create a balanced background for all your video chats and speaks on the biggest home trends of 2021.
…So, who won Best Backdrop on the Zoom call? You’ll have to listen to today’s episode of Let’s Talk About to find out.
