My Romantic Home!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Cupertino

Cindy's kitchen window viewHappy Valentine's Day! The Valentine day will be a perfect day to find a romantic home.  A local blogger managed to change a 1000 sf in  Campbell four plex apartment to be a beautiful French villa. Cindy Kihn-Santiago  is not a professional interior decorator by all means. She is a 48-year-old single mother of two kids who loves gardening, decorating, knitting, cooking and drawing. She shares her passion at the blogs of and the did a feature story of her on today's SJMN .    Thank for the owner of After posting a photo on the network's Rate My Space, the HGTV has found her also.   Cindy's apartment was used as an HGTV inspiration for a couple who wanted a romantic bedroom. JCPenney handed her a $500 shopping spree for the home decor.Earlier this week she told her audience that she is hoping to land a spot on a new HGTV show, "HGTV Designer for a Day," to work along with a host to make over a room. If you look her web site of my romantic home you can find realtors pay $75.00 a listing as long as the listing is alive. She attracts 3000 hits each day. The hit  is probably more than most realtors' blogs. The above photo is her kitchen window  from today news paper San Jose Mercury News .

Hi Grace,

Actually, Cindy writes on her own blog and Lookiloos ran a story on Cindy and her home. Lookiloos is a local home and garden website/blog.  We partner with the Mercury News and they feature our content in the Home and Garden section on a regular basis. By the way I met you before when I shot a virtual tour for you.  Happy Valentine's Day.
