hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

Good morning! We’re so excited to watch our second appearance on The Nate Berkus Show later today and hope you are too! However, we’re pretty sure the aprons we had to wear could be the least flattering article of clothing one could wear on TV, so that makes us a little less anxious to see the show. 😉
We created some pretty awesome projects for this episode that we’re super proud of, and had one epic fail that we wish we could erase from history (and Nate’s memory!). Check back later today for all the juicy behind-the-scenes details we know you really came to read about.  Plus, you can find out if we decided to use any of these things in our design:
If you’re new to the blog, WELCOME! We’re happy to have you here in our little slice of blogland. You can get a backstage pass to our big TV debut on The Nate Show here, and see all the fun projects we created for that show here.  Be sure to “like” us on facebook for even more info about the show and other projects we’re working on!
Don’t forget to check back this afternoon for an unprecedented second post of the day!
