Her style, coined "Laid Back Luxe," is synonymous with blending glamour, comfort, and family into the spaces she designs – something she personally prioritizes.

The Laundry Guy
From a young age, Patric Richardson developed a passion for laundry, sparked by a toy washing machine gift from Santa at the age of 3. His love for clothes and their care led him to study Merchandising Apparel and Textiles at the University of Kentucky. After a successful career in luxury fashion at McAlpins, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom, Patric opened the designer vintage store Mona Williams in 2013, featuring a curated collection of fine laundry products. A Star Tribune feature on his unique approach to laundering caught the community's attention, leading him to share his expertise through sold-out Laundry Camps. This newfound interest resulted in the publication of his book "Laundry Love," now in its fourth printing, and a television show, "The Laundry Guy," on HGTV and Discovery+. Patric has gained national and international recognition, appearing in various media outlets and continuing his love for laundry in St. Paul, MN, with his partner and a well-cared-for lime tree.
Come see "The Laundry Guy" live on the Design Stage on Friday at 5pm and Saturday at 3pm!
