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!

Jess and I love the Philadelphia Home Show- we’ve attended for the past few years, loved seeing all the cool rooms, new products, and shopping at The Clover Market.  Well, this year we’re crazy excited that we’ll be speaking at The Home Show!  We’ll be there on Saturday, January 25th and presenting at 2pm and 4pm.

We’d LOVE for any of you locals (and even some crazy non-locals that want to travel) to come and hang with us at The Home Show!  We worked a sweet deal for EC2 readers and got you $4.00 off the ticket price!  Use the code KNOCK at the box office.
But wait, there’s more… it’s kinda like those infomercials where they’ll throw in the extra baby bullet and the ginsu knife for free!  We’re giving away a Knock It Off Room Makeover! Yup, one of our casting producers will be there accepting entries and we’re going to get to work with one lucky entrant on an upcoming episode of “Knock It Off!”  We’re so excited about this!  We get so many emails with some crazy bad rooms that need help, and we want to do them ALL, but we can only do so many, so we’re thrilled that one of our readers might win this contest and we’ll get to hang out and makeover your room!!
All the details are below and let us know if you have any questions!
Philadelphia Home Show

This past Saturday, we did a quick, little segment for FYI Philly and shared some DIY projects we’d done in the past.  We’re going to be talking at the Home Show about working with what you have and we’ll be doing some fun upcycles live during our presentations!  Here’s the TV clip if you missed it!
(for some reason it won’t embed, so just click the link below. Sorry!)
So what’s it gonna be? Are you gonna come hang with us? We sure hope so!
