Tommy Smythe has become a television home design expert in his own right

From Sarah Richardson’s sidekick to HGTV star


Published:

Tommy Smythe hosts new show dedicated to finding up-and-coming interior designers.

Former Rosedale resident Tommy Smythe first burst onto television screens in Toronto as Sarah Richardson’s confidant and design sidekick on shows such as Design Inc. and Sarah 101. The pair quickly became fan favourites with viewers across the country. 

Now Smythe is taking on roles on his own, including his recent gig as the host of Gusto’s The Search for Canada’s Next Designer. He is also a design expert on The Marilyn Denis Show and a regular contributor to Canadian House and Home magazine. 

Next up, he’ll be appearing on the second season of HGTV’s Home To Win this spring, where he’ll be crossing paths with Richardson once again.

Local Love: Sliding into the footwear trend of the summer with a local designer

This summer, it’s all about the slide. Perfect for those who hate dealing with fiddly sandal buckles, it’s hard not to fall for the charms of the shoe that exudes low-key elegance. One of the season’s best finds hails from Toronto’s very own Zvelle line.
