Found & Foraged Linky Party #41

BIGGEST ANNOUNCEMENT: We are going to take Labor Day Weekend off, so no Linky Party next Saturday, Sept. 5th., but we’ll be back Sept 12th. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I’ve been having one heck of a fun day you guys. This morning I got up super early and walked Randolph Street Market with Jen Harrison, hung out with Meredith from Canary Lane and finally met Beth from South Loop Loft. Wow! Did I find some seriously amazing treasures. Stacks of indigo you guys! Stacks! A great hammock from Canary Lane and this insane sheepskin that I can’t wait to walk on. Happy toes.

If you didn’t see my Before & After Guest Bedroom Reveal, please check it out. And if you’ve already checked it out, well then you need to go look at Huffington Post because it just got published over there. EEP!

I’m also playing with the Periscope app. So, if you guys want to see me looking like a bumbling fool pretty soon, look me up on Periscope and give me a follow @houseofhipsters It will notify you when I’m live. Have a great weekend!!!

Decorist Bedroom Design Project – Before & After Part 3

If you’ve been watching my Instagram, you’ve probably seen a couple sneak peeks of the guest bedroom Decorist design project. I moved towards a look that was out of my comfort zone. Right before teaming up with Decorist, I noticed I was obsessing over white and neutral spaces.  Pinning them like I was on fire. Maybe it was because I was also on color overload while redecorating the master bedroom in navy and pink? I don’t know, but flipped the switch, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. Decorist hooked me up with Ashley Redmond, interior designer extraordinaire. I was psyched!

Found & Foraged Linky Party #40

Holy shmoly you guys! Last week’s shares were on fire! If I could feature each and every post, I would. You really made it so difficult to choose…hence the over share below. Couldn’t help myself. I wound up sticking 37 posts in a hat (there were more too) and restraining myself from pulling no more than 5 to showcase.

Also, I have to thank you for sharing out the party last week. A couple weeks ago, it was crickets over here. I want to all to get the exposure and traffic your blog deserves and discover new friends. It’s so important that we all visit and try to comment on at least 2 other posts in the link up. Besides, that’s what makes a party a party, am I right? So keep sharing this linky party every week on your social media. And with that, let’s get this show on the road, shall we? Can you out do last week’s party train? Seriously, I do not think that is even possible, but let’s try.

Visiting Unison Home Store in Chicago – Part 2

Dear Emily,

You’ll be happy to know I’ve finally received some pillow help from the gals at Unison. I stopped into the store for a visit and pillow lesson last week and just to make sure I had mastered the art of mixing and matching, they were kind enough to stop over to the house. I also might have bribed them with good coffee. I know kitten, I really needed some hand holding on this one. Maybe you called them and gave them a heads up. If you did, for that I thank you. So wipe those tears from your sweet cheeks and turn that frown upside down because my pillows have been styled in a perfect palette and pattern family. Hip hip hooray! Pull up a seat, sit that cutie patootie down, and check out what the Unison girls had up their sleeve.

It is not easy to mix and match pillows  for your home decor. So many colors, patterns and sizes to think about. In this post we teamed up with Unison Home Store to talk about what pillows work best and show different combinations. Click through to read more.

Found & Foraged Linky Party #39

If you’re here, it must be Saturday night. Welcome back for yet another Found & Foraged Linky Party. You guys must be having a busy summer because last weeks party was SLOOOOOOW! So spill, what were you up to? Please tell me it was something amazing so I can live vicariously through you. And because it was so slow, I’m going to ask that all of you share this linky party out. Share it via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Periscope, Google +. Whatever social media you have. It will ultimately gain you more exposure because this party is all about you and sharing your new projects. So, share this post out.

For me, I finally had a lot of behind the scenes projects come to fruition. My home tour was on the front page of Refinery29. WOW! It was one of those holy schmoly moments. A huge thank you to Chairish for making that happen. I posted my visit to Unison home store, and next week I’ll be sharing how we styled everything in the house. I’m super excited about sharing that. And last but not least, I launched a new series called Makers & Shakers. Jayson, the owner of Lodge Coffee Roasters took me and The Boy on an Explorer Coffee Roasting Adventure. You can read all about it here. It was awesome, and if you drink coffee, you really need to order a pound from him. You’ll thank me for it. Best coffee I’ve ever had in my life! Anyhoo, that’s my recap. I hope you had an amazing week. Let’s party!
