A couple months ago I shared that I was working with HomeGoods on a local photoshoot styling a family room, chalkboard wall, a grab & go station and a dining tablescape. You can see all the behind the scenes stuff here. Long story short, I got a great opportunity to work with the HomeGoods editors, stylists and photographers during their summer social styling shoot. It was so much fun and I learned tons. It was a lot of work but well worth it. Like I said in my previous post a couple months ago, it doesn’t get much better than showing up to a local HomeGoods store (5 stores to be exact) with a U-haul truck and fill it with everything you love from Homegoods. It was amazing!
Here is the family room from scratch that I created. Click here and you can see more pictures and the full story behind the theme on my post over at the HomeGoods, Design Happy blog.
I love the organizational wall.
and reading nook.
Next up is the chalkboard wall. Click here and see how we painted this wall and created a fun wall gallery in an effort to keep thing organized.
Kind of cute right? I struggled a bit with the design of the wall but after a few changes, I found a pattern on the wall that I liked. The trick is to use a variety of frame sizes, colors and shapes. Also, adding a few unexpected pieces as well helps create visual interest. We don’t have a chalkboard wall in our home but after creating this one from scratch, I am confident I can do one in our home too. This was the first chalkboard wall I had ever done. The paint is amazing!
Next up is the cute grab and go station.
and coffee station.
Love the free floating shelves.
Yes, all this stuff is from HomeGoods.
Lastly, the dining tablescape. Check out more of this space here and find out what theme I was given to incorporate into this space.
I picked up the food in the dishes from a local whole foods and I was so hungry after the photographer took the pictures that I literally sat down at the table and ate it! I wasn’t the only one :).
I love mixing and matching dishes and this time, I decided to mix four different patterns and colors.
This was such a fun week and I love that they are letting me share all these images with you here on our blog. It was a little scary being in charge of decorating these spaces all by my lonesome but I think they came out great and what a wonderful learning experience. I am a DIY chic at heart and have no special design training so I was honored and a bit flattered that they invited me to play with them for a week. It’s unbelievable what goes into a photoshoot.
