NEW YORK, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Meg Caswell, a 34-year-old interior designer and business owner from Chicago, has won Season 6 of the reality competition series "HGTV Design Star."

Caswell won a contract for her own HGTV show on Monday night's season finale.

The competition was judged by noted designers Vern Yip, Genevieve Gorder and Candice Olson, while Season 1 winner David Bromstad served as mentor.

"Being chosen as the next 'HGTV Design Star' is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. I have won my life's dream," Caswell said in a statement.

Her five-episode series, "HGTV Great Rooms," is to premiere Saturday.

"Meg embodies so many unique qualities," said Yip.

I'm really looking forward to seeing her new series."
