And while Semerjian showcased her talents in a Bucks County home for the episode, a majority of her jobs are on the Main Line.

Personal decorating style: Transitional. I never do one particular style—it’s too one-dimensional. I appreciate a tasteful and balanced mix of modern and traditional fused together with rustic elements.

Favorite room in her house: My kitchen. I love to cook, and our island is a central gathering point.
