“Paula Deen is known best as the ‘Queen of Southern Cuisine,’ but few know that she’s also an accomplished painter, fashionista and a connoisseur of home décor,” said Penny Burnett, Chief Merchandising Officer of EVINE Live. “Our product development team partnered closely with Paula when designing this collection, taking inspirations from her art, style and Savannah, Georgia home. Paula Deen’s Home truly embodies Paula’s personal approach to design and we’re excited to introduce her millions of fans to this new line.”
“Working with EVINE Live and connecting directly with my fans has been a wonderful experience,” said Paula Deen. “I approach style the same way I approach cooking.

I’m looking forward to sharing all of my passions with EVINE Live’s customers – my love of art, style and design.”
Paula Deen’s Home will launch on March 13 and 14 with an assortment of sophisticated bedding.
