NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - A show that incorporates Food, Wine and Interior Design, “A Taste for Design” hosted by Cindy Gelormini, will air on Home Towne Television beginning in March 2013.  Also known as “The Paint Diva,” many will recognize Cindy as the Decorating and Color Consultant at McGrath's Paint and Hardware in New Providence.

Cindy will do a “Paint Diva” segment on each episode with “how-to” tips and talk about different Benjamin Moore paint products and choosing colors. Then she will travel and visit other local stores, restaurants, wine shops, to do food and wine segments, as well as visit Interior Designers, builders, landscapers and architects, giving viewers a “taste” of what the Garden State has to offer.

A Taste For Design is not your typical design show with a  “makeover and a reveal.” But rather it follows the trend of homeowners using websites like Houzz.com and Pinterest to find ideas for their homes. She'll do a virtual “blog” and “pin” to share photos and inspiration. Those who use these sights “Pin” ideas to their idea books. After viewing the show, if a viewer likes the ideas, they can simply visit the show's website and facebook page to find the links to each of the blogs and pins, and find the links to the featured business's websites.

Appearing in the first three episodes will be New Providence businesses, Creative Wallcoverings and Interiors, McGrath's Paint and Hardware, Paolo's Kitchen and Torbilt Construction.  She will taste wines at Berkeley Wine Co. in Berkeley Heights, and visit “The House” in Millburn, Sweet Grace Cake Designs in Haworth, NJ, and more.

Gelormini is well known in New Providence, Berkeley Heights, Summit and Chatham. She grew up in New Providence, taught aerobics at The Connection in Summit, is a singer/songwriter who has done local concerts, and sings with the band every Sunday at the Presbyterian Church in New Providence. In addition to that, she has chosen paint colors for thousands of local residents as The Paint Diva working at two of McGrath's locations in New Providence and Chatham. Before becoming a color consultant, she was a decorative artist, and did murals and faux finishes for numerous homes, churches and restaurants throughout New Jersey.

The Diva produces the show along with Long Shot Productions and  JDVMusic and Design.

“A Taste For Design”will begin airing on HTTV (Comcast channel 36, and Verizon channel 33) beginning in March. Air times will be Sunday 9:00pm, Tuesday 4:30 p.m., Wednesday 9:30 a.m., Thursday and noon, and 6:30 p.m., Friday 10:30 a.m. and Saturday 1 a.m.
