While we’ve long known of Tamra Judge’s love for real estate — and her history as a successful broker! — it wasn’t until Home & Design recently sat down with The Real Housewives of Orange County mama that we learned of her other passion.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

I wanted to go to school to be an interior decorator, because I just love it, but instead I got into real estate,” she explained. “So, I just love houses in general. I’m always looking at house stuff online. I follow fitness stuff and decorating — those are the two things I follow on social media.

To that end, Tamra also dished about all those beautiful interiors we’ve seen in her current and past homes. News alert: She did them without any help! “I’ve always decorated my houses by myself,” she revealed, adding that her aesthetic has changed over the years. “See, every time we move, I want to do a different style. The house that we’re in right now has got the dark floors with the white wainscoting, the shiplap on the ceiling. It’s very ‘Cape Cod,’ but it’s got a little bit of a modern twist to it, so it’s not all nautical and all that. It has a little bit of a modern twist, I guess you would call it.

What’s her current vibe? “[In this new house,] I elected to not have everything match. I like to mix all kinds of different materials together.” To see all of Tamra’s interior design work, take the full tour of her stunning new $2 million home in the video above and be sure to tune into RHOC on Tuesdays at 9/8 p.m.
