Galey Alix (@galeyalix) shares a post.

Galey Alix has racked up millions of followers on Tik Tok and Instagram, posting fast-paced videos revealing jaw-dropping interior design makeovers she typically completes with a team of helpers in one weekend at her clients' homes. Her videos have generated over 500 million views.

Alix made her own dramatic announcement on September 22, 2022, revealing that she has been working on her first season of her new show on HGTV, which is scheduled to premiere in the spring of 2023.

She told her nearly three million followers on TikTok that their support and enthusiasm for her projects aided her in obtaining the program. I'm beside myself + beyond grateful for every comment, and like you all have stated, this is why this is happening.

After a rocky few years of facing an eating disorder and a strained engagement in the midst of growing her career, Alix shared an emotional message on Instagram.

I don't know much about this, but what I've learned is that if life is burying you, there's a good possibility youre just a seed being planted, she said. We walk away with more depth, more empathy for others who are struggling, and an instinct for experiencing laughter again. I started this business to help families smile when I surprise them, because it made me feel alive again.

Personal Struggles of Finance Executives Lead Her to Becoming a Design Star

Alix candidly shared on the Talking Out Loud podcast with Denae Mercer in February 2021. She said she realized she had a gift for transforming people's spaces. In 2019, she confessed to her husband that she had been hiding an eating disorder and needed his assistance finding help. He was blindsided and ended their engagement, which she said.

Alix, a Goldman Sachs vice president, immediately sold their 10,000-square-foot Connecticut house, which was redecorated in an effort to furnish the perfect home. She returned to Florida, where she began treatment for her eating disorder.

Alix said she would give it her all, despite having no training and having never seen a decorating show, and worked on the project around the clock for three days while her friends went to Disney World.

She stated that she spent much of her life trying to perfect myself, most likely due to an extreme fear that I don't feel like I'm competent enough, inadequate, untrained, or capable of doing enough.

Alix realized that she could use all of the energy she spent degrading herself to help others feel better in their homes. That, in turn, made her feel better about herself. She then started transforming and filming 42 more rooms before assembling a group of people she loves to assist her.

In her September 22 Instagram post, life challenges us and we emerge with strength, compassion for others who are struggling, and an instinctive desire to experience laughter again.

She continued. Smiling ear to ear as I watch the sun rise on Sunday mornings while still on a job assured me that I had found my passion. And falling madly in love with every heart I brought onto my team feels a lot like I did end up creating a family of my own.

Alix posted a photo on her Instagram Stories on September 23 showing a film crew working on the second episode of her upcoming HGTV program. She plans to keep her full-time finance job.

According to E! News, Alix is also in a blossoming connection with Dale Moss, who was in a highly-publicized and tumultuous relationship with Clare Crawley after they met on The Bachelorette in 2020.

On the same night of her HGTV announcement, she shared two videos of a surprise dinner party she hosted for Moss. She wrote more than one video, in which she is leaning over Moss as the Cranberries song Kiss Me plays, and Happy birthday, my love.
