    We're firm believers that a woman can handle grunt work just as well as any man. Change a tire? Check. Mow the lawn? On it. And, when it comes to swinging around a hammer like a boss, HGTV star Alison Victoria more than proves our point. Not only is the Chicago native the inspirational force behind Kitchen Crashers, she also runs her own interior-design firm.

    With all these skills in her proverbial tool belt, there's no better person to give us a little home-interior advice. And, because the proof is in the pudding, we photographed Victoria in her stunning Wicker Park home. From the best places to pick up those special touches to a few DIY projects to keep you busy this summer, here is the inspiration you need to get a television-worthy pad in no time.
