  about cara 

Cara Newhart is a designer and diy queen and the host of the Make Space Podcast.


Cara is on a mission to empower everyday women to take charge of their homes and design spaces they’re obsessed with — on their terms.

After losing her dad to cancer and without his contractor-expertise to guide her in customizing her first home, she decided to dive in without fear and tackle epic diy projects all by herself — transforming her home solo, teaching herself to use power tools, and finding the confidence to bring her design ideas to life. 

As the host of MAKE SPACE, she helps women dive deeper than pin-worthy rooms to uncover home design strategies, learn to tackle power tool projects without intimidation, and unlock the confidence to transform their spaces.

Cara has been featured in Apartment Therapy, House Beautiful, PEOPLE StyleWatch and more. She’s collaborated with brands like The Home Depot, Amazon, Wayfair, and others.

just a little note…

I sometimes partner with brands to create sponsored content or features around products that are gifted. I choose these collaborations carefully not only based on the fact that I love them but because I know you will love them too.

I will always give you our honest feedback. Brands make it possible for me to do this as a career, but you’re the reason I even have a blog in the first place.

See the terms of use for disclosures and more info or visit the disclaimer page if you’re a brand.
