    #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.

    What It Means to “Make Space” In Your Home and What Might Be Holding You Back from Creating Your Dream Space

    What It Means to “Make Space” In Your Home and What Might Be Holding You Back from Creating Your Dream Space

    We are changing it up today and I am doing a solo episode because I really wanted to dive into what it means to “make space” in your home. When I named this podcast there was a double-sided meaning here. On one hand “making space” means making your spaces, taking charge of DIY and projects, and really just stepping up and taking charge of the process of designing a home that you are obsessed with and everything that comes but it also is about making it all apply to you and what you want out of your space.







    I thought this was the perfect time to take an episode to really unpack what it means to “make space” in your home because I think as we begin the year there are a lot of additions you feel you need to add to your life. Those things feel like they can pile up and be overwhelming.  So listen in as we dive into what it really means to “make space” in your home.

    Creating spaces that serve your everyday life with Interior Designer + HGTV Star Cortney Novogratz

    Creating spaces that serve your everyday life with Interior Designer + HGTV Star Cortney Novogratz

    On the show today, I have the honor of sitting down with Cortney Novogratz. There are just some conversations that I get to have that are really special and this is one of them. Cortney Novogratz is an interior designer, developer, and one-half of the Novogratz design duo along with her husband Robert. They are well known for their eclectic style and boutique-inspired furniture and home accents. They have been widely covered by global media for over a decade having starred in TV shows on Bravo and HGTV and recently published a book. It is actually more of a design bible than a book and it is called Novogratz Design Fix. Their products are sold at major retailers including CB2, Amazon, Wayfair, and Walmart as well as their own store Shop the Novogratz. 







    In this conversation, we cover everything from design conversations to finding your style to how to design a space along with your family friends. This conversation is beautiful and draws from Cortney’s extensive experience. We dive into her design journey, her tips from years as a designer, her book, her store, and so much more.
