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

I told you I was 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 addr… 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

Trolling Craigslist… Kansas City

Last weeks Nashville-gate (the lack 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… Continue reading

Oh Joy’s Studio: the ‘living room’

pongeBob’ really fast. So my rule is: if you love a ton of bright colors and patterns then paint your 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 b… Continue reading

HGTV magazine spread; A lovely house makeover in Studio city

…red it was a good opportunity to make a statement instead of just painting them all white or getting all wood — 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 w… 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

Palm Springs, i done did it.

Aight.  Sorry for the delay, my interweb was down and then i went and hung out in portland for a few days – you know, spent some time cursing myself for not living here.  I have the genius idea of doing some episodes up here, i mean, its the ‘it’ city right now, you can’t tell me it wouldn’t be awesome for all involved.   Oh and everybody’s been emailing asking when the show is airing, and while… Continue reading

Austin stole my heart, and liquid killed my computer

…0;. although this date might change, i’ll keep you posted.  2. I was in Austin for the week shooting my episode for HGTV’d (which debuts this monday on HGTV) and its been insanely fun.  Great crew, great city, amazing family….full of a lot of bbq, 100 degree weather, lots of bands and even more 2-stepping (remind me to tell you the one about the old texan man who whilst dancing with me told me that i ‘woke up his… Continue reading
