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!

UPDATE:  The application submission window has closed. The chosen applicant will be contacted by 9/7/15.  Thanks to ALL of you that submitted!

You guys…

Guess What?!?…

… Sorry, I was giving a dramatic Kanye West pause… Ugh those VMAs were a hot mess- I need to bleach my brain!

Speaking of hot messes… do you have a hot mess room in your home that needs a refresh? A space you’d love to makeover before the holiday season?   A space that you just haven’t gotten around to?

Well, I’ve teamed up with Lowe’s to give one of you a FREE room makeover!!

Fall Makeover East Coast Creative 2B

Are you as excited as I am?!? This is going to be amazing and there are a few things I’m especially crazy excited about…

1- I get to choose the recipient of the makeover (something I never really go to do with “Knock It Off!” casting)

2- It’s happening SOON- between Sept 25-October 11th!

3- I can travel anywhere in the U.S to come to you- this isn’t just for my East Coast fans!

Here’s the deal… We’re accepting applications for the next 2 days You have to apply by midnight on September 2nd – it’s a super tight window, because I want to have enough time to read over every single application myself before selecting.  I’m looking for a person or family with an awesome story (doesn’t have to be a tear jerker, just something that should be shared with the world!) or you can nominate someone else that you think could really benefit from a makeover.

Once the applicant is chosen, you and I will chat and talk through your goals for the space and I’ll come up with a design plan that’s perfect for you and your style! Lowe’s will fly me out to you, and is proving me with a team of talented volunteers to help make our design vision a reality!  They’re also providing the budget and all the materials we’ll need!  (I heart Lowe’s) Since this is a 24 hour makeover, think of it more as a refresh than an overhaul.  I won’t have time to gut a full kitchen, but the way I work my magic, you’ll be amazed at how much we can accomplish together in 24 hours. It’s going to be pure magic friends.

So, are you ready to hang out with me and get your home holiday ready?!?

    I’d like to nominate Jenn and Carlos velez. They love and serve so many, and their resources are super limited. Plus they are a LOT of fun and entertaining with 5 kids. I don’t know if you need a specific room but their kitchen could definitely use a facelift… Or possibly reconstructive surgery;)

    I promise they would be hilarious to work with and great on and off camera.

    Thank you!

    I would like to know would furniture like couches be provided? My space needs new furniture for the best look or I would get furniture prior to the makeover. I am excited about this because my family room needs a huge makeover! My husband helps so many and is not handy and this would be a huge blessing!

    Has the winner been contacted or announced yet? I’m still anxiously waiting to know if it was us! PLEASE POST THE WINNER!
