Decorating with Paula Deen?

by Lisa Stewart 12 May 2012

I met Paula Deen in High Point, NC when she introduced her new line of furniture. Yes, one of the best-known personalities in the world of cooking is now designing dining tables and more. She shared her story of overcoming poverty, self doubt and health challenges. To turn her life around Paula reached deep inside her soul and decided to do what she knew best, traditional Southern cooking. Her journey from kitchen to fame started with her first business, a home-based catering company. 

Paula has remained genuine, real and full of love. Grateful for all she's been blessed with, Paula and her family continue to give back to the community.  They tour the country to talk about life, family, cooking and now furniture. Fun and friendly, her smile was contagious and her story inspiring. Thanks, Paula!
