They graced the front page of the Kitsap Sun Saturday and now Poulsbo homeowners Ron Comin and Matthew Woorden are going to be gracing the big screen (well how big depends on the size of your television).
The Poulsbo couple that devote 1,500 hours a year to their Christmas light display at 26730 Big Valley Road are to be featured tomorrow (Wednesday) on The Nate Berkus Show. The show airs on Kong (Channel 6 at my house) at 6 p.m.
The show recently filmed the lighted display that boasts 62,000 lights spanning more than 4 miles when stretched out, and a classic display of handmade holiday spirit. Comin, a self-employed architect, created the design that follows the couple’s natural landscape. He also built the scaled down North Pole village and the mechanisms that move Santa and Mrs. Claus and Head Elf Sam. Woorden, an interior designer, sewed the bodies of the figures.
Their hard work will receive air time on the show which offers advice to viewers on everything from DIY projects around the house to interior design tips to fashion advice and recipes. A design expert, Berkus quickly rose to fame after Oprah Winfrey regularly featured him on her show. He hosted his own show on Oprah Radio and is now the host of The Nate Berkus Show, a syndicated decorating show.
