    #064: Styling Your Space + Behind the Curtain of Influencing with Kyla Herbes

    #064: Styling Your Space + Behind the Curtain of Influencing with Kyla Herbes

    Today’s episode is going to be windy, so buckle up! I am sitting down with my friend Kyla Herbes from House of Hipsters. Kyla is an incredible designer. She is the queen of evolving and reinventing spaces, rearranging them, and changing things over time. She is also really amazing at thrifting and finding super unique pieces and she has been featured on Apartment Therapy, HuffPost Refinery 29, Style Me Pretty Living, Weekly Magazine, and more. 







    Today Kyla and I are sitting down to talk about tips and tricks for styling your space. We also talk about social media inspiration and how the landscape has evolved with both the pandemic and TikTok coming into the picture.  It is a little peek behind the curtain into how home influencers create content and all the changes that have happened through short-form video becoming the new way we get our inspo versus photos. It has changed the game and we dive into what is going on, the push for authenticity, and how we have adapted and changed.  It is a really interesting episode if you are curious about where home inspiration comes from on social media if you want a peek behind the curtain at what influencers do, or if you are a new or seasoned influencer that wants to hear how we are thinking of things. We go on a lot of tangents and it is a lot of fun.
