Professional Career

Farr relocated to Los Angeles in order to pursue a career in acting and design.

She began her design profession in Los Angeles, where she purchased many buildings to rebuild and renovate.

During that period, she also worked in interior design businesses and conducted a variety of part-time jobs.

She also began working as a set designer on film sets, designing residences for use in the films.

She made her acting debut in the 1972 film ‘Layout for 5 Models,’ playing a minor role.

She made her cinematic debut in 1973 with the picture ‘Sex Farm.’

She appears in the British comedy film ‘Never Mind the Quality, Feel the Width’ the same year.

‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show,’ ‘Legend of the Werewolf,’ and ‘City on Fire’ are among her other significant films.

When Hilary was unable to find sufficient quality and respectable employment as an actor, she shifted her focus to her remodeling and designing job.

She was also recruited to design/renovate the homes of well-known American stars such as Jenna Elfman and Jennifer Hudson.

She was one of the first designers in Toronto to introduce the notion of house staging.

The notion entails arranging furniture and other items in the home in a way that improves the home’s aesthetic.

After a difficult divorce, she returned to Toronto in 2008. The next year, she was offered a spot on the TV show ‘Love It or List It.’ It later spawned a franchise.

The show, which is still on Canadian television, centers on couples who are unhappy with the interiors of their houses, and two designers who also happen to be the hosts provide the couples with ideas for refurbishing their homes.

While one of the hosts, Hilary, is optimistic about the future prospects of the homes being lovely, the other, David Visentin, is generally pessimistic.

Because of its unusual material, the show became one of the most-watched variety shows on Canadian television. Hilary has defeated David in 90 of the 154 episodes of the show that aired.

There were some questions about the reality program’s legitimacy, however, the cast members and producers eventually acknowledged that it was not a staged show.

Several honors were bestowed upon the show over its existence. ‘Love It or List It‘ was nominated for two ‘Gemini Awards’ in 2010, including ‘Best Direction in a Reality Program or Series’ and ‘Best Reality Program or Series.’

When the show first aired on ‘HGTV,’ the creators said it was one of the most-watched TV shows in the network’s history.

In April 2016, Hilary and the program’s organizers were embroiled in a big scandal after a competitor on the show alleged that the restoration of his property had not been done correctly and that the show’s hosts had not actively participated in the process.

In 2010, Hilary was also a host for the show Search for the Next W Expert.’ By 2011, Hilary had established herself as a celebrity in the Canadian entertainment industry and had made multiple television appearances.

She was also invited to attend the ‘Canadian International Interior Design Show,’ which was held in Edmonton, Vancouver, and Toronto.

In 2014, she was invited as a design expert and visitor to the ‘Art Van Furniture conference in Orland Park, Chicago, Illinois.

She was recruited to play a pivotal part in the stage production of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ in Toronto in 2016, giving her the opportunity to revisit her passion for playing. In the play, she played the role of ‘Malignicent.’
