Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Described as the "diva of domesticity," interior designer and lifestyle expert Katie Brown helmed this weekly advice program on the A&E cable network. While there was plenty of advice pertaining to cooking, crafts, decorating, and repairing, the emphasis was on the successful staging of seasonal and "theme" parties. Early episodes found Brown showing folks at home how to transform a bicycle wheel into a canopy bed and painting a flower box "the blue of the ocean" for a special occasion. When it first aired on July 6, 2003, All Year Round With Katie Brown was tied in with a nationwide promotion campaign for Kodak's PLUSDigital one-time use cameras.
