Bathroom Makeover – Clé Tile Cubicon – ORC Week 3

Seriously, how are we halfway through this challenge already? I’m exhausted and not even doing the heavy lifting. Poor Gerry is dealing with my, “let’s customize everything in the smallest amount of time mindframe”…oh, and hey Gerry, I also need you to fix a basement and makeover yet another bathroom. Can we all take a pause and give Gerry and his crew a hug? Poor guy didn’t know what he was getting himself into with me.

Hey Kyla! Where’d Ya Get That Sofa?

Yep, I’ve been hearing that a lot lately…lots of folks asking me about the sofa I chose for the Decorist DesignOff. Today I’m going to break it down and talk about a bit about the Chicago-based furniture company Interior Define, and why I chose the Caitlin sofa.

One Room Challenge – Week 1

Oh One Room Challenge…you are the mistress I love to hate. Your pull is strong my dear. When I don’t participate, I feel left out…but when I do, I question my own sanity. For those unfamiliar with the One Room Challenge…or The ORC as my fellow bloggers refer to it as…it’s a challenge to makeover a room in only 6 weeks and document the process. Start to finish. Some succeed, others fail. It only happens twice a year. Motivating? Yes. Challenging? Yes? Complete and utter crazy ensues? You betch’yor bottom dollar. It’s time to slap on the helmet, buckle down the chin strap, and hold on tight. One Room Challenge Fall 2016 is underway!

House Of Hipsters One Room Challenge Powder Room Bathroom Makeover - Before Picture

Last Fall, I participated in my first ORC and gave my office a little makeover. The room was a complete and utter embarrassment. A maze to walk through, and if you fell down, you might not be found. On November 11, I wrapped..barely…I finished the final post only moments before the deadline. I was happy with how the space transformed, but that was in the old house. Yup, my pretty little office is gone like the wind. I thought about an office redo for this year’s ORC, but if you thought my last office before was bad, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. This one is a mic drop like Beyoncé at the VMAs. No way, no how. Besides, I just wrapped the Decorist DesignOff living room makeover yesterday. I needed to keep this baby small. Low budget. I needed to pick a tiny room.

Final Reveal — Decorist DesignOff with Jojotastic and House of Hipsters

Hi friend! Can you feel the excitement is in the air today? Today is final reveal day for the Decorist DesignOff between Jojotastic and myself. All the hard work has finally come to fruition. In case you’re new to this neck of the interwebs woods, Joanna and I got a little crazy and decided to lose all control of our new homes to let you, our reader, vote on which Decorist DesignOff project we should move forward with. WHAAA!?!? At first I thought I was completely insane, and I’ll admit to having a couple nightmares of Hildi Santo Tomas from Trading Spaces, gluing hay to my walls. EEEEP! But when I opened the email and saw the initial mood boards, I let out the biggest sigh of relief! My interior designer, Ashley Redmond, blew both designs outta the water.
