In an exclusive clip from the new episode, the HGTV star, 36, helps her longtime friend Rebekah Staples with searching for a new home in Laurel, Mississippi, to be nearer to her family. "Rebekah is very close to her family. Her family is famous in Jones County," Napier reveals of the massive clan (Staples's dad is the youngest of thirteen children). "I think she has a dream of having a family here one day."

She explains, "I wanted to move back to Laurel to find a house and be close to my beautiful and wonderful family." The women have been friends since they were in junior high, so designing a home for Staples is especially meaningful to Napier. "It's fun designing for a friend because you know what they like on deeper level," she says.

"Bek travels quite a bit," she says. "I think it's probably really hard to nail down her specific style because she is being ever influenced by the cultures she experiences when she is traveling." Staples, who is currently single, shared that she is hoping to find a rural property with lots of outdoor space.
