We Got A New Sofa – With Jonathan Louis

This post is sponsored by Jonathan Louis. 

Today I have a before and after furniture reveal that is pretty much mindblowing. A while back, I wrote about a quest for the perfect TV watching sofa. When we first moved into the house, I had purchased a vintage sofa with the thought process of it’s: used, it already has dents and dings, and I won’t be sad when my kids wreck it. That thought process lasted for exactly 4 months.

Before and After Living Room Makeover Reveal with Jonathan Louis

After daily use, there were 3 new holes in the beautifully patinaed leather and my son had used his fingernail to scratch words into the back side of the leather. It was also sat through and incredibly uncomfortable with its shlumpy cushions. I had made a design disaster, and we needed a new sofa…badly.

Skinny Makeover — The Dining Room Rug Debacle

When we bought the new house, the dining room was the first space I started decorating. In fact, the Girl in a Chemise Picasso painting (BTDubs…so not real…yes, I’ve been asked…I ain’t that fancy) was the first piece of home decor we brought into the house on closing day, and she might just be the only thing that’s never been moved to date.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel And Her Mid-Century Style

Now that I own a television that can easily stream from the internet, I feel like a whole new world has been opened. A few posts back I shared a few new to me shows I was either binging or discovering…I know, I’m a little late to the game…but, one happened to be The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I started watching the night that post went live and am presently obsessed with her Mid-Century home decor style…so bewitched, that sometimes I forget about the story line and just nerd out over the furniture. If you’re a lover of 1950’s interiors and fashion, read on.

A Wall You’ve Never Seen Until Today — Meet The Frame

This post is sponsored by Samsung.

Confession — there’s a wall in my home you never see. The dreaded tv wall. A big black box eyesore that every home decor enthusiast tries to hide. Most people say, just deal with it, and I get it. That’s exactly what I’ve done. It’s a part of life. Almost everyone has a tv, and in my home, there’s no living without it. Function over form accepted — that is until now — meet The Frame TV by Samsung.

No Makeup Home Tour

We all see celebrities, actresses, beauty bloggers and Kardashians posting no makeup selfies. The #ijustwokeuplikethis candid shot. A genuine look underneath at all the time and effort that goes into looking beautiful. Some still look stunning and others absolutely hideous. But in a weird way it makes that person more relatable. Every blemish and flaw is exposed. They are more normal. 

No Makeup Home Tour hosted by House of Hipsters — what a blogger's home looks like in real life.

Over the last year, I’ve been wanting to host a home tour that was a bit out of the ordinary. Something authentic. A real glimpse behind the curtain of Instagram and into the everyday life of the home decor blogger. When not every pillow is perfectly karate chopped and not every bed is made. After months of planning, I threw it out there thinking for sure this would take convincing. But I sent out an email anyway, asking a few of my bloggery besties to join me, crossed my fingers, and hoped for the best. Much to my surprise, an incredibly talented group (all listed below…please go visit their home tours as well) stepped forward ready to bare it all. Welcome to the No Makeup Home Tour.
