Last month I was hired by Fishbowl Media who produces online segments for Yahoo's show Ultimate Surprises, to transform a bare class room into a new music room for a surprise for Mr. Sollecito in Torrance CA.
For two weeks I prepped the project and also shot with Ikea at the Burbank store who donated a wonderful gift card towards our project. I was also able to secure paint by Valpsar and the generosity also came from Lamps Plus and House of Blues. I also begged borrowed and pleaded for decals, art and hooks - basically anything that could be used in the room. And so many amazing Etsy designers came forward to donate tons of products!
The episode just went live and CLICK HERE to view the reveal video!
I also want to thank my wonderful friends Marilynn Taylor, Jordan Cappella and Typhanie Peterson and her wonderful husband and sister for lending extra help. There is no way we could have finished on time if it wasn't for the help!
Hope you enjoy the video!

I've been prepping and shopping the last few weeks for a new Radio Studio project at Bedrock Studios in Echo Park. Inside the studio we have some pretty stark white walls and I came up with an idea to paint the walls in a color blocking/stripe design.
Above are some of my renderings for each of the walls.
The colors we chose for the room are Chinese red, dark purple, light gray and white from Valspar.
Above are some of our ideas for the walls. We will start painting next week and cant wait to share with you our pictures of the room. Above is also our inspiration board for the space that was posted last week.
I also just found this vintage sample fabric which is the same colors of the room. Wish me luck I hope I can find more of it to reupholster the vintage office chair I bought!
