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!

Friends… The day is finally here! We’re revealing my makeover of Jenna Kutcher’s Maui Condo!

If you’re visiting from Jenna’s site- welcome! Glad to have you – if you’re a fan of DIY Makeovers and creative home ideas, make sure you’re following me on Instagram – @EastCoastCreative (I just added an IG Story Highlight of my entire trip!) and if you love home reno, HGTV style shows check out my digital series “The Weekender”  

Okay, so… back in October I was a able to check off two major bucket list items… 1- Working with Jenna Kutcher and 2 – Visiting Hawaii for the first time! Both did NOT disappoint.  I looked forward to the trip for so long that I can hardly believe it’s over already!

You might not know this, but I hang out with Jenna a few times every single week! Not always in Maui (I wish!!) You see, I’m a religious listener of her Goal Digger Podcast. I’ve followed Jenna for years, but since she started her podcast, we took our relationship to the next level and she teaches me, encourages me, and helps grow my business every.single.week! Ladies, it’s a must listen – you’ll thank me later!

So, of course when I had the opportunity to head to Maui and help Jenna and Drew give their new rental condo a facelift, I was 100% on board! I spent a few days getting the new condo out of the 80s and creating a simple, relaxing vibe for Kutcher Condo 2.0 .  One unique thing that sets this makeover apart from most that I do, is that this is Jenna and Drew’s rental condo (their 2nd actually) and if you want you can actually stay in it (here’s the condo rental site)! I loved my time on Maui and even though I was there for work, I would 100% recommend you visit! It was also kinda fun doing a rental, because it gives you guys the opportunity to visit spaces I’ve worked on, instead of just watching them on TV… Maybe we need to do a few more rentals! What do you think?!?

We’re revealing this makeover in two parts…the full photo reveal is over on Jenna’s blog right now and soon I’ll be sharing a full, behind the scenes how-to video of the makeover!

Here’s a little before + after action for ya!




Aloha! -Monica

P.S. Since so many of you have already asked me… Yes! Jenna and Drew are as amazing, fun, and authentic as you’d think! They were a blast to work with and I can’t wait for them to welcome Baby Kutch any moment now!
