House Of Hipsters Shop Playlist Part I

One thing that was a high priority when opening the shop was the playlist. Music completely sets the tone. Not too stuffy. Slightly playful. Vintage yet trending. Basically everything I want the shop to be. Every time music is heard in the background when I share Stories on Instagram, I get soooooo many DMs. What song is that? Well, I gotcha cuz today I made you a mixtape of goodness. This comes in a 4 part series, so check back for more.

Beautiful Distractions No. 12

Last week I was a #TRADspotter and toured The MART with Luxe Home Chicago and Traditional Home magazine. What a complete treat for the eyes! If you missed my Instagram Stories, I saved them as a highlight in my profile. There was “one new to me” company that I was completely wowed by. Maya Romanoff’s wallcoverings are out of this world. Beautiful wood veneers, bedazzled glass beads, woven material, mother of pearl, woven wool fabric…it’s texture heaven. Mind. Blown. They’re out of Skokie, IL, not too far from my home, and I’m working on a factory tour to give you a closer look.

I Fed The Troll

The other day I fed an internet troll. Normally I would delete the comment and move on, but that particular morning I was feeling frisky and let that troll’s voice be heard. I mean, she did have a point although her delivery needed a bit of work. I posted this photo with the caption of, “I woke up, got some coffee and decide this room needs to change. Ever want to burn it all and start over? #pleasetellmeimnottheonlyone”.

House Of Hipsters Opened A Brick And Mortar In Barrington

I’ve been slightly quiet on the blogger front this year, but that doesn’t mean I’ve been sitting on the sofa eating bonbons. No sir-ee bob! I’ve been busy behind the scenes building a little vintage empire in downtown Barrington, IL. In October of last year, the owner of Steeplechase Antiques approached me. “Hey Kyla, the shop next to me will be up for rent. Remember when you said you might be interested in opening a brick and mortar…we’re you serious?” Ummmm, no. Errrrrr, maybe? Well….screw it, what’s the worst that could happen, right? Why not. Count me in!

Guest Bedroom Refresh With Drew Barrymore’s Flower Home and Walmart

Drew Barrymore just dropped an all new home decor line at Walmart called Flower Home, and it couldn’t be any more perfect! It’s a little bit boho, with a touch of glam and whimsy. So Drew, and right up my alley. Oh, and did I mention it’s completely affordable? Ummm ya. As of late, I’m under a pretty strict budget, so I thought this collaboration would be the perfect time for a guest bedroom refresh!
