Meet the Cast


Hallmark’s synopsis reads:

When Jen, (Bowen) an up-and-coming interior designer, discovers that Hygge Home, the premiere design brand, is having a contest to select a resident designer, she is thrilled to get a chance at the opportunity until she realizes that the contest is focused on social media. Jen wants to be taken seriously for her talent and lets the quality of her designs speak for themselves in her simple yet tasteful social media posts. She avoids revealing anything personal in her posts because it’s all about her work. With encouragement from her best friend Max (Daugherty), she decides to apply to the contest posing as “Jen T,” a put-together design influencer with Max playing her husband and her nephew as their baby. To their surprise, she is selected as a finalist and is torn continuing to play the perfect family or telling the truth. In the process of manufacturing the perfect home, family, and lifestyle to win the contest, Jen develops deeper bonds with her mother, sister and Max, who she finally sees in a romantic light. Along the way she discovers that there’s nothing like the real thing.
