After working closely with architects, conceptualizing and designing custom homes, she set about working hand in hand with the contractors. Through these close working relationships, she discovered her interest in the artistic approach of designing and creative beautiful spaces within the homes.

After spending time involved in this endeavor, McQueen decided to do put a twist on things and focus on her passion, which was designing and decorating. After much thought, she invited her friend, a licensed designer, to join her in this exciting adventure. Thus, a wonderfully successful and fulfilling business started, Tattered Hydrangea. The strength of McQueen and her partner within Tattered Hydrangea, is that they are able to find already existing properties that others deem unworthy, or lacking in certain layout or architectural integrity, and turn them into the "showplace" of the neighborhood.

Many times these properties that McQueen acquires simply need minimal renovations that others cannot or are not willing to allow themselves to see. It is this positive potential that she loves to find in her renovations. Her business approach is to always keep the market in mind when designing for others. She believes that diversity in approach is the key to creating the perfect interiors. She allows the house to dictate many of her thoughts and decisions on what will be changed, embellished or left in its original state.

McQueen can be found using her design approach to incorporate diverse and unique ways of decorating. Some of her concepts allow for financial compromise, while at other times full out lavishness is required. No place is off limits for Tanya when searching or perusing for that "perfect" piece. She has been known to scavenge in many removed and undesirable locations, while also loving to shop the one-of-a-kind boutiques.

McQueen feels that being a part of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is a dream come true. It's an opportunity to do what she loves for so many amazing families. The best part of an exhausting design process for her is to hand the keys over to people that truly love the space. It is an opportunity to create a haven for families to comfortably gather and make many wonderful memories together.
