Our Rental Home Renovation!

This Summer, my husband, Reza, and I decided to take on the giant task of flipping a home we purchased here in L.A. (on a whim!) to turn it into a rental house.
My son and his new wife had actually been house hunting and put an offer on this home and one other. Amazingly both offers were accepted. They chose not to go with this one but because the house was such a great deal (it needed A LOT of work), Reza and I decided to jump on it and buy it ourselves. 
Over the course of 2 months, Reza and a small crew of 5 transformed the home inside and out...

The home was built in 1951.  It features orange shag carpeting, a brick fireplace, and enough wood paneling to create a bonfire the size of Texas.  The main floor is divided into 3 levels, each divided by one small sloping carpeted step. 

 The original owner of the home was a Welder/Iron Smith. We found that most of the hardware, brackets, and door fixtures were handmade by him often in funny shapes or with various initials on them, most likely those of his children and family.  We actually kept almost all of his original metal work including this interesting chandelier in the dining room.

 

 

Overall, the entire process was pretty enjoyable except for perhaps the electrical and plumbing components.  Most of our inspiration was found from the many open houses we visit on the weekends and from a few of our friends' homes.  The home is currently occupied by a young family and I think after all is said and done, we would do it again!

A Q&A with Interior Designer Shannon Claire Smith from
Shannon Claire Interiors

Shannon Claire is an Interior Designer and Stylist based in Washington, DC. 

She recently took part in the One Room Challenge which featured Pom Pom at Home Bedding. View her entire room reveal HERE!

 

 

 

 1.  What do you enjoy most about interior decorating?

There is so much to enjoy! I think my favorite part about it is that I get to express my creativity every day, as a job. That's a pretty sweet thing.

2. What was the goal for your design?

For this design, I really wanted to do something fresh and FUN, that I hadn't seen before. I also really wanted this space to reflect my client's personality, which I really think it does.
3. What do you love about Pom Pom at Home? What is your favorite product?
Choosing my favorite is like choosing my favorite pet! If I had to pick ONE favorite, I think I would choose the Poppy Blanket in Blush. It's so light and soft, and makes making the bed a breeze.
4. What or who inspires you right now?

Right now, I am really into sculptural elements contrasted with soft textures- particularly pottery. I just think that in addition to serving as beautiful vessels for fresh flowers or greenery, they also look beautiful and make a statement empty in a collection on a shelf or table. I have been put on a ceramics ban by my husband, but that's not going so well.

5. How would you describe your style?

I like to think my style is a fresh take on traditional with a feminine bend and a quirky edge.

 

6. Where do you go to get new ideas and inspiration?

I'm lucky enough to live in Washington, DC, where the museums and the architecture are all around are so, so beautiful. I'm the most inspired by beautiful textures and architecture or pieces that are found in unexpected places- one of my favorite things in the city are the air return vents at the National Gallery. 

7. How would you sum up your aesthetic?

Collected, airy, odd.

8. Whats the most treasured item in your home?

I am absolutely in love with this marble fireplace mantel that I found on Craigslist. It's huge, and black marble with stark white veining. Someone didn't know what they had, and listed it on Craigslist for $50 and some elbow grease. I showed up 30 minutes later with a screwdriver and staked my claim, and I plan to rip it out and bring it to every home I live in.

9. Bold hues or subtle neutrals?

I will always lean more towards subtle neutrals, because I think they are more challenging. It's easier to throw bold colors together to make a statement, but making something subtle beautiful is so challenging and fun. And the end result is sophisticated and timeless.

10. What the best piece of advice you can give someone about decorating?

Remember scale! I would argue that the scale of an item is more important than the style of it. That doesn't mean that everything needs to be huge, but keep in mind proportions- it's what makes a good design great!

 Thank you so much Shannon Claire for taking the time to share your insights with us!
We adore your funky and fun bedroom reveal!

A Q&A with designer, blogger & stylist, Joanna Hawley from Jojotastic.

Based in Seattle, Joanna Hawley is a blogger, stylist, & digital influencer. With a degree in Industrial Design she runs the blog Jojotastic which features her DIY, entertaining, interior design, style, and food. 
She also recently took part in the One Room Challenge where Pom Pom at Home was able to partner up and feature our linen products. See her 'B
ackyard Oasis' reveal HERE. 
1.  What do you enjoy most about interior decorating?
My favorite part about decorating is seeing it all come together. There's always this moment where I second guess myself, so to see it all come together in a cohesive, stylish way is really exciting.

2. What was the goal for your design?
My goal for any design project is to create a functional and stylish space that is actually livable.


3. What do you love about Pom Pom at Home? What is your favorite product?
Pom Pom at Home is basically my dream collection of textiles! The materials are top notch and just so gorgeous. I especially love how everything layers together so beautifully. My favorite product would definitely be the linen throws. They have the most sumptuous drape — and the color selections are fab.
 
4. What or who inspires you right now?
I am constantly inspired by nature. I find that I'm most creative when somewhere on a mountain or surrounded by trees. 
 
5. How would you describe your style?
My style is constantly evolving, but it will always be eclectic, casual, and modern.
 
6. Where do you go to get new ideas and inspiration?
My best ideas come to me when I'm away from all of my tech devices and in nature. I looove getting off the grid. Travel also is a constant source of inspiration. 


7. How would you sum up your aesthetic?
My aesthetic is definitely grounded in neutrals and style basics (lots of white, black, navy, and natural tones), but then I always add a twist like some weird vintage pieces.
 
8. Whats the most treasured item in your home?
My naked lady painting!
 
9. Bold hues or subtle neutrals?
Subtle neutrals, all the way.
 
10. What the best piece of advice you can give someone about decorating?
Take your time. I've found that it's taken at least 2 years for me to figure out what my style is for my own home because it's such an evolution and you need to feel out the space.
 
Thank you so much Joanna for taking the time to answer our questions!  Thank you for inspiring us with your style & designs!  We truly loved your backyard oasis!
