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!

A few months back we put out the word that we needed some help here at EC2! We were overwhelmed by how many of you responded and were so honored by how many of you said you would enjoy working with us!!  (That just means we’ve actually tricked you into thinking we’re semi-normal people.  Mwhahah!)  We should say here that if you reached out to us about the position and didn’t hear back, please forgive us! That’s exactly why we needed help- neither one of us is type A, which sometimes means a bit ‘o chaos and unreturned emails!!
Anyhow, after much thought, lots of phone calls, and emails, we found just the right gal for the job!!
We’re super excited to introduce Diana as the newest member of the East Coast Creative Team!
(We can call it a team now that it has more than two people! I’d like to call it a posse, but Jess would most likely roll her eyes at me-ha!)
So Diana is going to be my stunt double… nah… Just kidding, I do all my own stunts!
Actually, she’s going to be helping us with lots of the behind the scenes stuff that makes a blog run smoothly.  We might actually remember to pin our posts… might tell you on Facebook when we post… heck, we might even post regularly 4x a week and get all our Knock It Off tutorials online!  It’s going to be epic people!!
Diana has a ton of social media experience and has been working on other sites for the past few years.  We’re excited about the mad skillz she’s bringing to the table!  Diana is also known for putting together awesome round up posts, so be on the look out for a few contributor posts from her as well.  Everyone loves a good round up!
Jess and I will still be the ones blogging and working on projects etc… Diana is just going to be like our nagging mom telling us when we have to do the less fun parts of blogging like paying bills, actually posting about projects that we might have forgotten about etc…  She’s gonna keep us in line 🙂  (Ha! Good luck with that Diana!)
So, that’s all the news we have for now!  But since this post was project-less, how about you head over to Knock It Off’s page and check out the insanely awesome formal living room project we’ll be posting about here later this week!!

    Where did you but the write curtains and what is the name of the yellow paint? Love the look.
