The Curbly House Makeover Video

Happy cyber monday, friends. I can’t wait ’til i’m 90 years old and every day is a different holiday – it will happen … just watch … blogger appreciation day? Teen vampire celebration day? Hug your cable man day?

We had a wonderful thanksgiving – our last as non-parents, and then spent the rest of the weekend finishing the big move into our new house. In case you are considering moving as a hobby i’ll tell you this: moving out SUCKS, and yet moving in is so terribly satisfying and fun.

More on that later, but for now enjoy this lovely video that Jon Kingman made of the Curbly house makeover, starring Orlando Soria (as hunky assistant – that was our last trip working together … ah… sad!!!!), the Curbly family (as the homeowners) and me, (as the pregnant chick).

In case you missed the whole makeover check out the living room, dining room, master bedroom and sunroom when you have a second.  The whole project was incredibly fun and kinda a dream. Thank you so much, Sherwin-Williams  for partnering with them for their makeover and these posts – this content doesn’t just create itself so help from lovely partners is always very appreciated.

Now the real question: who are you wearing for Cyber Monday? I’m wearing a hopefully-labor-inducing-straight-jacket-inspired-tube-dress by the new hot New York label ‘I’m 38 weeks pregnant and NOTHING fits’. Their fall runway collection is particularly embarrassing and unflattering. xx

    Such a beautiful makeover…well done…makes me want to redecorate my whole house! And you thought that was just a problem you had!! It’s in the water!!! ACK! Best of luck in the upcoming days with the house, moving (military…I feel like an expert sometimes) and the little man on the way! Enjoy your week!

    I loved this whole makeover! It is so beautiful, and still looks like you could live in it without fear of ruining everything. Well done!

    Best of luck to you in the upcoming weeks! I hope you’re getting lots of foot rubs :) :)

    I just painted my living room in Aloof Gray last weekend because I saw it in the Curbly makeover and I LOVE it.

    Wait. What happened to you and Orlando? Did you break up? Did he leave you right before you’re about to have a baby? How could he?

    • I second that! Did I miss something? Why is he gone NOW?

      • Vivian

        Orlando??!! What happened?

        • Sarah

          Please tell us.
          You two are magic together.

  5. You look so beautiful pregnant, but I certainly know the feeling!

    I’ll be in my PJs all day wrangling children and cozying up to my laptop to get most of my shopping done. Cyber Monday is a funny “holiday” I’m totally in love with!

  6. you’re breaking up with O? say it ain’t so!

  7. Lesley

    Once you have kids, moving IN isn’t fun either! Unless you can drop them at the grandparents’ for a week, or something.

  8. Kate

    Wait. Wait. Wait. What happened to Orlando? He is such a delight. If you did indeed break up, I will miss him so. I hope you will stay friends and he will make guest appearances. Best of luck in his new endeavors.

    Also, that video makes me want to dive into my computer. What a lovely home. I want you to come make mine a dream too. So lovely! Such style!

  9. Cindy

    Wait, where did Orlando go?

  10. Tracy

    I am so sad to see Orlando and Emily part. I suspected it was something to do with his going through the LAX shootings (I read his blog) ? A chance to re-evaluate his life. Just guessing.

    Love the video, just love this makeover.

  12. Nikki

    Its beautiful emily!

  13. Melissa

    So beautiful and inspiring, as usual, Emily! I just moved and I’m in the middle of remodeling my living and dining rooms (bedrooms are next!) and you have been such a source of inspiration. I wish you the best in the coming weeks and months with your new little man! xx

    Cool makeover, although as a wood purist it kills me that they painted that beautiful woodwork. I know I know it brightens up the place etc. etc. blah blah blah but still. Woodwork aside it’s a beautiful makeover and cute video.

  15. Christa

    Orlando? Why?

  16. Hey, I have that marble Nate Berkus tray on my dresser! Can we pretend this means that we have the same taste and are besties? Umkay. Thanks!

  17. Kelly

    i’m with everyone else: What’s happening with Orlando. Love you Emily, but love Emily & Orlando even more!
