Final Reveal — Jojotastic and House of Hipsters DesignOff with Decorist

Hi friend! Can you feel the excitement is in the air today? Today is final reveal day for the DesignOff between Jojotastic and myself sponsored by Decorist. 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 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.

The Lime In The Coconut – Cocktail Recipe

I’m definitely no longer on vacation in Puerto Rico…reality set in weeks ago. But that doesn’t mean I can’t bring the beach back home. The sun is shining, and the boxes from the move are unpacked (mostly because of The Boy’s Type A personality). My job here is done which means I can kick back, relax, and soak up some sun. It’s time enjoy the new patio, sponsored by World Market, with a summer time drink in my hand. Today, I’m going to share with you The Lime In The Coconut cocktail recipe because it’s magically delicious! If it was acceptable, I’d swim around in a vat of this drink.

And before you scurry back to work, be sure to stop over to Jojotastic because Joanna has a great DIY Ultimate After Sun Soothing Lotion…and believe me, I could have used that after day 1 in Puerto Rico! Ouch!

Jojotastic & House Of Hipsters DesignOff with Decorist– Part 1

Moving day officially arrived last Friday. It feels like it took forever, but it finally happen it, and it only took 1 semi-truck plus 1 large package truck and 8 burly men to get us out of one space and into another. Oy! It was a crazy hot day without air conditioning on the hottest day of the year (that’s a whole nuther story)…but we made it! As I was moving chairs and sofas from room to room, the space just felt like home. It didn’t feel new, but instead felt warm and cozy…like we had lived there for years. I guess that’s probably how it’s supposed to feel. However, you know how I like to shake it up…itching for something new, so I reached out to Decorist for some virtual online design fun because this one can’t hold still for long. Welcome to The DesignOff.

World Market Boho Patio DesignOff

Do you remember my seriously sad patio? Bare, cold, and blah about sums it up. If you’ve been watching my Instagram and Snapchat ( houseofhipsters ), then you’ve already seen sneak peeks and some smack talking to my DesignOff challenger Jojotastic (aka Joanna). Her and I are in this knock down drag out fight…errr, ya no, it’s really more like a friendly little Boho Patio DesignOff Challenge, sponsored by World Market. BTDubs, they’re having one sweet sale right now…the deets are at the bottom of this post.

Patio DesignOff with World Market, Jojotastic and House Of Hipsters

There’s a lot of things I love about our new home, but it has a few nooks of sadness. One being the patio, and that’s the one place during the summer months where we love to spend our time. There’s nothing quite like kicking back in the evening, crickets chirping, fireflies lighting up the woods. All that was missing last summer was the pool and a cabana boy. We had it good at the old place.
