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!

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that a last week I spent some time out in sunny California. I was there as part of Lowe’s Fall Makeover series and completed a one day nursery makeover for a super sweet couple that’s expecting their first baby on December 2nd (I’ll be sharing that makeover soon!).  Well, I had such an amazing time working with Lowe’s on that project, that we’re doing it again- and just in time for the holidays! If you have a room or outdoor space that you want to decorate for the holidays, well today’s the day to apply!

Holiday decorating is one of my most favorite things in the history of ever!  I loved filming our Christmas episode of “Knock It Off!” I like to think of myself as the designer version of Santa… he brings presents, I bring DIY inspiration and Style… oh and cookies, of course cookies.  Love them!

Here’s the deal… We’re accepting applications for the next 2 days You have to apply by midnight on October 8th – it’s a super tight window, because I need 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.  Please Note: If you applied for the fall makeover and weren’t selected, you’ll need to re-apply for this one.

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 this second time around…

1- I get to choose the recipient of the makeover (something I never really go to do with “Knock It Off!” casting. I also found out how hard it is to choose during the fall makeover series! I want to come help everyone!)

2- It’s happening SOON- between November 2-16th.  Which means you’d need to be cool with decorating a tad earlier than normal. Trust me, with what we do, you might want to keep it up all year!

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

4- I’m bringing along my BFF Jess for this project, so you’re getting the dynamic Mon-Jess duo!

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 is providing me with a team of talented volunteers to help make our design vision a reality!  They’re also providing all the materials we’ll need!  (I truly 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 build you a fireplace from scratch, 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 holiday magic friends!

That’s my very serious Santa face above- lol!  I’m insanely jazzed up about this this, and you know that hospitality is a huge part of my world- and the idea of helping you feel good about opening your home for the holidays and creating special memories with the important people in your life, is incredible!

I am so thankful that Lowe’s is partnering with me to offer this opportunity to you guys!

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

    I’ve been doing the same ole for too long – would love to have you come to Nebraska and change things up.

  2. Hi Monica…What a fabulous and fun idea! I usually go with a feeling theme each holiday season, and this time I am leaning towards Scandinavian “hygge”, warm and cozy, yet bright. I am usually doing this alone and I would so appreciate another creative person to help with designing and making it really special. This year my grown sons are visiting and I would love to have our main room festive and inviting. I hope I am chosen…I promise to be a good helper!!

  3. Deb Locklear says:

    I’m a widow with three sons. My youngest who is 18 won’t be home for the holidays because he just joined the Marine corps. Decorating may be hard for me this year emotionally. Loved your show, would love any help.

  4. Andrea Martinez says:
