UPDATE: JBL FLIP Winners & Exclusive sneak peek into a new home makeover …

*** Congratulations JBL FLIP winners: Jessica Grove, Elana Kilkenny, and Kristin Robertshaw! Look out for information to follow!


This one is a doozy, trust me. I mean, the living room started with apple green walls and ’90s Tuscan-style tile, like so:

living room before

Hideous and empty, clearly, but FULL of amazing potential. And now, folks, she is almost totally finished and she is looking GOOD, nay, better than good — legitimately awesome if I do say so myself.

But here’s what normally happens: we redesign the house, then shoot the house to pitch to a magazine, then it takes awhile for magazine to say yes, set up a shoot, shoot it, and months later publish it. The whole process normally takes a year or so AFTER we are done with the house and in that year I’m not allowed to show any AFTER photos. This is VERY difficult as you know because I can barely go 10 minutes without telling a stranger something uber personal about myself.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t show you a video, right?

For this video I partnered up with JBL Audio and Sharkpig Studios to give you an exclusive sneak peek into this home.

It’s install day — the day that we really do most of the work, all of the styling, and often dance like a cat with an itch in the middle of its back. It’s not pretty but it is accurate.

You’ve seen the before photo (above), now watch the after:

I mean, pretty much all Orlando and I do is dance and throw pillows at each other. It’s like a non-stop ’90s teenage slumber party over here.

To reward you for watching and sharing (please share!!!) we are giving away not one, not two, but THREE of the JBL Flips that you see in the video. What’s a Flip? Well, listen up (pun intended), I’ll explain: The Flip is portable, (no chords whatsoever you just charge it when not in use), it’s attractive (duh), and it plays from your iPhone (or smart phone or computer). AND the most important fact that often us stylish-obsessed people dismiss when it comes to tech and audio is … it sounds AWESOME. I know this because I previously didn’t think I cared about such things until I tested a ton of these portable blue-tooth speakers (including the widely loved jam box that looks cool too, but sadly has poor sound quality compared to the Flip) and found that this guy has AMAZING sound. Most dudes know that JBL and Harman Kardon rule in quality, but I didn’t really know that until I did my blind hear test (I’m not kidding).

And so can you:


So now, I use the Flip when I want something that is super portable, throw-around-able, and with good sound. I know what you are thinking: “You have to say that because it’s a sponsored post.” Nah, I actually don’t. All I have to say is “The post post was in partnership with JBL.” That’s all, and yet I keep writing …

I use this bad boy ALL the time; when I’m installing in a house, certainly, but mainly when I’m at home cleaning, going room to room, listening to This American Life. I don’t have a huge surround sound system in my house, nor do I want to schlep my computer and a speaker from room to room. This guy is super easy to just move with me and it’s all controlled by my phone (or computer) — and plays anything my phone does: Spotify, podcasts or my iTunes library. Plus it looks dope (I prefer the white one, but I like the blue as well).

For those of you who want one of these to arrive at your door all you have to do is share this post or video — either on Twitter or Facebook and tag @JBLAudio in the post, and then come back here and comment that you did. Make sure to leave your email address so I can contact the THREE random winners. You have until Sunday, September 1st (my birthday) to enter. Happy birthday to me and you :) sharkpig video

Meanwhile Orlando and I will be laughing at apparently nothing while Sharkpig’s team (‘Sup, Steve) shoots more videos of us dancing like injured ferrets.

Comment away folks. Get yerself a free piece of actually stylish audio because how else are you supposed to listen to ‘Blurred Lines’ over and over and over for the rest of the summer?

*This video and post was in partnership with JBL Audio, but all ideas, designs, words, thoughts, opinions, and dancing choreography are my own. Thank you VERY much for supporting the partnerships that keep food in my fridge and clothes on my cat. 

  1. Shared on Twitter! And holy hell do I need this. Realized what a tech wasteland my music situation is when I was using my iPad for music last weekend at a BBQ. The sound quality is less than stellar.

    • Anne

      Hi Emily, Love this make over…fabulous art and bookshelves. I tried to redo my bookshelves with globes, little wood animals (LOVE), and books. Something wasn’t working so I looked back at yours and study to find balance, it’s getting better but I think I need to go hunting for more stuff. Such an art form to place things well! Sent this to a friend who also loves your work and this very cool JBL Flip. How cool to have this while doing projects and everyday stuff! Thanks for teaching me great design :). Anne

  2. Oh my gosh, we totally need this! We got some new patio furniture for our house this summer but it’s so quiet outside in nature…I want music!

  3. Julie

    Emily, I adore your style (and dance moves;)) and want a friend/work partner like Orlando. I shared your post on twitter– would love to dance and decorate too! Great product.

    You inspire me. Dance on. Julie

  4. Lauren

    Shared on twitter!

  5. Omg this makes me so happy! Congrats on your new home! Your green skinny jeans are darling by the way.

  6. Karen Walentek

    Shared this on Facebook!! I would absolutely LOVE one of these @JBLaudio speakers! Love your blog Emily :)

  7. Mari

    Hey Emily!
    I love this promo, and I would love a speaker to call my own…but is this available to international readers? Or just for americans residents?


  8. Sarah

    Tweeted it! Those dance moves come as complimentary bonus, right?

  9. Aleksandra

    Shared on Facebook:) And blue is very, very pretty!

  10. Shelby

    Shared this on my Twitter! I would loooooove one of these speakers because my apartment is so tight on space that we can hear each other ALWAYS (yup.. that issssss what I’m talking about!)

  11. Tweeted! I just bought the crappiest portable stereo ever – it makes my ears bleed. Would love to get a system that actually makes Ira Glass’ voice MORE nerdily appealing (let’s be honest though, I’d have a voice crush even through a piece of string and a tin can).

  12. Becky

    Pick me!!!

  13. Kelly

    Tweet Tweet! I need one of these BAD! And actually know several friends do as well so it works out to share it! Merci mon ami!

  14. Christina

    I tweeted, but I don’t really know how to tweet things, so I’m assuming all is well on that end! What a great device! I’m sick of carrying around my iPhone in a glass…

  19. Meagan

    I shared on Twitter! Love your style.

  20. K. Cutshall


    GAWD I can’t get over the wooden stadium seats in the master bedroom. I want to sit in those so hard, or I just want to be killed right now. Ok? Great.

    I tweeted the post and would LOVE a JBL speaker. My new kitten just chewed through the cords on my old speaker system, so I’m currently music-less in the apartment… Sigh.

    You accessorize like a champ. Who knew I’d want a cow painting on my wall, but now I totally do! You know what else I want? Those speakers. We’ve been lugging the laptop to the back yard each time we have people over. Thanks for the info on the Jambox, I was contemplating getting one because they’re pretty, but glad to hear the sound isn’t that amazing!

  120. I just shared this post on Facebook!!
    We’ve been trying to play music from our iPhone speakers at the pool all summer and it’s never loud enough – this is EXACTLY what we need!!!

  121. elena

    My facebook friends are aware. I’m excited to see/ hear your concept on this and the sources, of course.

  122. I tweeted about this! I would love one of these speakers, so convenient!

  123. Caitlin

    Facebooked! Adorable.

  130. Tweeted. What a wonderful opportunity, thank you!

  131. Sarah

    I love that this home is a departure from the typical “Emily Henderson” style. Great that you can be versatile with more subdued colors and less modern lines. So gorgeous. While I generally shy away from any advertiser-sponsored anything, that video was super fun. The shooters, editors, producers of it rule — well shot, well edited. They really brought out the best in you both (though it’s a little weird that they made you look like a romantic couple in that last shot when we all know you’re not). Keep up the awesome work.

  132. Tweeted!! I love your video and all of your styling! I was rooting for you from the beginning of design star- I still love your stuff! what a fun give away, sweet dance moves :)

  133. Shared on Facebook, love your style! My seven months baby, Ethan James, just start to crawl…and he’s so fast, that I would love if my music could go with us all around the house. Tam

  134. Christal

    Awesome job. Can’t wait to see what is next.

  135. Just tweeted it – My husband is in love with this little guy. He keeps bugging me for one. Would love to win it for him!!

  136. Jen Smith

    Shared on facebook! I neeeeeed one.

    Also I LOVE your website. I think I’ve read nearly all of your posts and you’ve convinced me to find a vintage couch to recover instead of buying new.

  137. Gem

    I cannot win this, as I am in New Zealand. Boo. Buuuuuuut, This is the best video. You are the coolest, Orlando is the coolest. I wish I had an Orlando, because installation day isn’t as fun on your own. But it is still my fav day. Okay I have gabbed too much.

  138. Lynn

    Love the install. Wish we could see more! And love that JBL Flip!

  139. marie

  168. Rae Ann

    Loved the video but I was laughing at how fast my eyes were moving trying to take everything in. The couch and stadium chairs were my favorite. What a great transformation, as usual.

    PS. don’t shake up that baby too much with all that dancing! LOL.

  172. Love your vibe, Em—and I appreciate that you, like me, only do sponsorships for stuff you actually like. :) I LOVE the flip! It’s similar to the Jambox but it seems like a more effective and affordable version of that product (without the cheesy moiré effect, too!). Anyway, I tweeted it out, and would totes love to win one so PICK ME PICK ME! ^_^

  173. Liz

    By the way, I said I wanted to be Emily’s friend in my post. Disclaimer: I am *not* a creeper. Just a fun-lovin’ girl who loves design and style too. Except I’m just okay at it.

  224. Gorgeous room. And I want that speaker so shared on Facebook.

    Hi! I know everyone is posting that they’ve tweeted or shared, but I was wondering about that awesome bookshelf. I know I recently saw one, but I can’t remember where- and I’m desparate for it! Was is Restoration Hardware? West Elm? Some place I’ve never heard of?

    A source and price would be greatly appreciated! Thanks :)

    Love everything you do!

  227. Emily U

    Shared on Twitter! Great video! Look like awesome speakers. We need stylish and unobtrusive tech so badly!!

  234. Dyanna Littke

    I love this video:) So much fun being had:) Shared on facebook- thank you!

  235. Michelle

    Love the house, and I love how TINY those JBL’s are! I am a music teacher who is constantly sharing recordings with choirs, students, ensembles etc. Itis such a pain to haul and hook up speakers, even small ones, I just dont. With these I wouldn’t have to say “now imagine what this would sound like on a great stereo” now they could hear it like I want them to. SUHWEET!

  236. Laura

    I love the simplicity of Emily’s work, yet it’s full of character and creativity. Let’s see more of her on HGTV! I wish she could come to my house.

  237. Blythe


  238. Naomi

    After seeing a clip like that, how can I stop myself from hiring you? Oh yeah, I live in Israel. Lame:(
    Love my JBL portable speakers. I have an older generation (7 years now, if I’m not mistaken). Time for an upgrade?

  239. Jessica

    Yay! Love the decorating dance montage! I shared your fun video and I would love to get a set of speakers for my birthday, which is September 24 :)

  240. Leigh-Anne

    This little guy would be right at home w/ me.
    ps You guys are freakn’ adorbs.

  241. This would be IDEAL! I just got the new iPhone5 so my old speakers don’t work with the new phone. What fun!

  242. Kimkay

    Shared on facebook and if you’re ever in my neighborhood you can redo any room you want . I know super generous of me. Win me some JBL Audio pls.

  243. Posted to FB! I agree about Jambox, sound is inferior. Can’t wait to hear one of these. And it looks great too.

  244. Annabelle

    Love what you do with every space you create!! Wish I could hire you for my place. Re-posted the great video on FB :) aa0925@aol.com

    Happy almost birthday, gotta love Virgos!!
    According to TLC… Virgos born on September 1 have a practical approach to life. They take great pride in their ability to organize their activities, and although they keep up a steady pace with every project, they never hurry. They have the same philosophical approach when it comes to life: “Do your best and leave the rest.”

  245. Heidi NL

    Shared on twitter! Emily and Orlando can decorate and throw pillows (see what I did there? Throw pillows? Throw the pillows??? Never mind) at my house any time they want.

  246. holly rice

    Happy Birthday…hope it is a great day!

  247. Meghan

    This video is precious and made me smile. Love you and your style and would love to jam to that little guy! Happy almost birthday! :)

  248. EvelynB

    I noticed that little white log-like device in your video and was totally wondering what it was, and sure enough you reveal it in the next paragraph! Very cute! I posted the link to my Twitter. I’m crossing my fingers! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  249. Suffer from kidney disease? find out how naturopath treats it successfully time and time again

  250. I know from personal experience how a home makeover can become a very stressful situation when it is not handled properly. Obviously, you have made a career out of doing it right, and I appreciate you giving us a great sneak peak of this project!
