Oh Joy’s Studio: the ‘living room’

…background totally neutral, either a white or gray. This is what I’ve done in my house, Bri’s, the Studio City house, and probably 15 others. I’m not saying you can’t do both, but it’s just harder to pull off and it makes a space look busier, smaller, and just generally ‘crazy person.’ So I either bring in color on the walls OR in the furniture/accessories, but rarely both. So we started with the Murphy… Continue reading

Studio City House, part 5 — The Master Bedroom

It’s a master bedroom redo in my 5th (and final installment) of this Studio City house series (that was featured in HGTV Magazine). It’s like “Breaking Dawn, Part 2,” except without stupid names like Renesme and weird CGI children. Or maybe it’s more like “Empire Strikes Back,” although I’m pretty sure that was 3rd not 5th in the series. Maybe I should stop trying to make metaphors and wikepedia-in… Continue reading

Studio city house, part 4

…as going to spread this house out. I’m really milking it. We are on post number four (out of five) of the studio city house and today’s makeover is totally exclusive to this blog, since the office didn’t make it into the magazine. (See post 1, 2 and 3.) We didn’t have a huge budget for the office; it was definitely not a priority, but that weird niche below was really a waste of space that needed to get addressed. So I did… Continue reading

Studio City House tour, part 3

It’s part three of the Studio City house that I decorated. I say “decorated” instead of designed in this post because their architect, Eric Olsen is responsible for all of the reclaimed wood, the design of the kitchen, and basically everything except for the furniture and accessories. So please credit him and hire him. He’s awesome — so talented, fast, and amazing to work with. Meanwhile I’ll show you what sty… Continue reading

HGTV magazine spread; A lovely house makeover in Studio city

…12; this pops off the wall, and really elevated the amateurism (sorry, Eli!) of the artwork. The rug is a Dwell Studio classic — the Draper Rug and it’s awesome. (I can’t find the yellow one on the site, but I found this yellow one instead.)  The white poufs you can get, well, a lot of places now and that gold lamp was a boring orange lamp that we spray-painted gold and put a fresh shade on. But what about that monster of an ama… Continue reading

Studio City Home Makeover, part 2

Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments on Monday’s post. After reading them all I made Orlando tell me how untalented, ugly, and annoying I was, over and over again, in order for my head to get back to a normal size. It’s almost like he enjoyed it. Meanwhile, let’s go into the living room, shall we? This is where they do the majority of their hanging out — TV watching, cuddling, reading, sudoku-ing, etc., as you… Continue reading

Trolling Craigslist… Kansas City

…ack of any cheap awesome finds) made me want to go somewhere smaller, with less of a vintage culture. So Kansas City it is, and my what wonderful things Kansas City did bring this week. 1. $450 Milo Baughman Sofa You know how I feel about Sir. Milo Baughman. In the right space you do not even need to recover this bad boy. Therefore some lucky CL shopper will potentially take home a Milo Baughman sofa for $450 without any additional expenses. That… Continue reading

Trolling Craigslist… New York City!

…ng in a thrown, like Snoop Dogg.  But if you have the space (again, restauraunt? Bar? loft? Event space? Design studio?) then you are in luck. Put it in the corner with a white saarinen side table, some hanging plants and a lot of sunlight. Boom. A moment of weird just happened to your corner. This is an incredible peacock chair with a lot of detail/handwork for only $75. 8.$280 Saarinen + Eames chairs I love this saarinen chair and even though $… Continue reading

Orcondo Part II: Let There Be Light!

…to all of us to be wary of basically anything anyone says at the flea market. MASTER BATHROOM I loved the simplicity of this light bar from AllModern for the master bathroom. I also love that it pairs perfectly with these delightfully plucky sconces from Park Studio. Right now the bathroom pretty much looks like a scene from a horror movie where a demon pops out of the mirror and drags you back into it. We ripped out a wall that used to be a clos… Continue reading
