About Last Night: Terra’s Big House, Episode 1 (THE STUDIO)

Yooooouu GUYS!? Ahhhhhh wassup! Did you all tune in last night? And by last night I mean Wednesday night cuz I’m a day late posting. In case you’ve been living under a rock and missed my social media blitz the past week, our new show, “Terra’s Big House” premiered 2 nights ago on Lifetime. (WATCH ONLINE HERE). It’s the first of 6 episodes during which my trusty right hand contractor & partner in crime – Cory McCrummen – and I will take on a HUGE remodel for Terra Jolé (star of Little Women & DWTS) and her husband Joe Gnoffo (most hilarious dude on the planet), renovating their house ONE room at a time… Or will we? Cuz I feel like we’re always just about ONE sneeze (or fart) away from getting canned. Ya never can tell. I mean let’s be honest. Even Penny looks like she’s not so sure about us.

But apparently I’m feelin like we’re sittin pretty at this point. Cory looks like he’s about to do the Care Bear Stare to win them over.

HERE’S THE JAM YO

SO – we have $150,000, and the goal is to stretch that moo as far as we can to completely tailor the house to Terra & Joe’s family’s needs and make it function and FEEL little people (“LP”) friendly, but not necessarily LOOK like we scaled everything down. Take everything “custom” out of the equation, and a whole house reno for $150k is already a lofty goal. I know, I know, it sounds like a lot – AND IT IS – but as anyone who has ever renovated any space (let alone an entire house) will tell ya, that money goes SO FAST. So in addition to staying on budget, we needed to somehow do this renovation:

a) *without* overtly shrinking everything in the house, and

b) without alienating average sized folks like yours truly.. (hey. what if I come over for pancakes one morning?), or potential buyers down the road, should they ever decide to sell. We also needed to be mindful of their littlest nugget, D’Artagnan (aka Grayson)… he’s still young enough that T&J aren’t sure if he’s going to grow up to be little or average sized, so we needed to design for both.

But imma tell you one thing: kid’s gonna be a stud with the ladies. LOOK AT THIS LITTLE MUFFIN!!

Long story long, this house needs to be comfortable and functional for EVERYONE. So, that’s the premise, and that’s a tall order (pun totally unintended). Let’s spitball about THE SHOW!

ABOUT CORY

First of all, can I talk about my co-star for a sec?? I feel like we filmed so much that they probably just couldn’t squeeze everything into a wee hour, but I gotta toot C’s horn for a sec: Cory McCrummen and I have been pals for AGES (he’s married to a lovely friend of me + Karrie’s, so fan those loins, ladies!), and he’s the one contractor I know that I trust implicitly. He’s got that good ‘ol Honest Abe thing going, is genuinely the kindest person you’ll ever meet (WAY nicer than I am), is so conscientious about his work (which is impeccable) and so thoughtful and compassionate when it comes to dealing with clients… um, contractors like that don’t exist, people. What makes C really unique is that he cut his teeth in both the design AND construction fields, so he’s got killer experience on both sides, and an amazing aesthetic to show for it.. and much different than mine.  I joke that his is “moody” (code for a restrained palette) and I think he said once that my style is like my personality (e.g. like “a party”)… or like Skittles. But if you saw the shots of his work, you can tell he’s got very refined, pared down but still warm, soulful, timeless taste. So, I have the best partner in crime EVER heading into this season.

Which is also going to be like heading into battle, if you happen to have seen the Entertainment Tonight trailer… YIKES.

THE STUDIO

The Studio was like our “try out” to do the main house.  The studio space is behind the main house, and was being used as a guest house / storage area before we got our grubby little paws on it. We had $3,000 to do this space, which doesn’t go far when you need: paint, some construction materials, wallpaper, an electrician, new lighting, furniture, rugs, accessories etc. Add to that the fact that 4 people (and 3 dogs) needed to live in this space, and it had to serve as: a bedroom, a kitchen, a dining room, a baby’s room, and an office.  That’s a little something I like to call trying to ride 5 horses with one a$$. Here’s what it looked like before… The two-toned wall/ceiling thing here was distracting and just made the space feel disjointed. I knew we needed to paint the ceiling, walls AND that weird trim piece in between all the same color to unify the space and give it a seamless, clean look.

Walking thru here unscathed was like playing Operation, but in real life.

This is the scene you see when you walk in the sliding glass doors – bed against the wall, boxes peppered (everywhere else).

This was the kitchen… see how low the ceiling starts at the top of the backsplash (before it vaults)?  It’s almost as low as the bottom of the cabinetry.  So if we had wallpapered ONLY that area, and left the ceiling, the wallpaper would’ve gotten lost and looked confusing. And chopped up the room. I also really needed the kitchen to kind of have a **POW** element and to delineate it from the rest of the space, since the natural barrier – that closet (on the right) – was coming out and being replaced by an eat-in island. Also.. the boob lights – no bueno.

We weren’t given many (decor) parameters on this first project – it was early on in the process, and while I did have a grasp on Terra’s taste, I also knew this was going to revert to a Guest House later, so I was thinking about it as something they may want to AirBNB someday… something that needed to feel like an escape and have a universal appeal for guests.  So this space was kind of like a free style. I told Cory that I thought it might be fun to do a Hawaii theme, and he legit looked at me like I had 7 heads with 1 eyeball in the middle. But that idea was born of this BEAUTIFUL WALLPAPER from Hygge & West (Aja in Khaki by Justina Blakeny), which I’d been obsessing over – and figured Terra would not be into at all.

Here’s how that scene went down. She fer SHURE thinks I’m nuts.

But check it out! HUUUUUGE thanks to Hygge & West for rushing these rolls out to us! They are the tits, if you guys haven’t worked with them before. Wallcoverings are super affordable, they have a calculator on each product’s page so you can tally how much you need (this is a pain in the arse otherwise), and their patterns are so great. PS: video of the kitchen all completed at the bottom of this post!

See! Cory’s stoked.

We replaced those godawful boob / mushroom lights with these little fellas. Less than $10 at Home Depot, and we spray painted them with a dark green Rustoleum. This was one thing Terra loved.

What do you guys think??

Another big project for this space was recovering the existing bed (that velvety-teal one) to make it more gender-neutral and just a little more fresh. I found this KILLER striped upholstery fabric at Threads in San Diego for like, $15 a yard. #stealing.

C-money was nice enough to help me get the fabric stapled into place on the headboard.

HHHHAAAAAAaaaaa – ask him if he came back to nail in nailheads after this……………

After the headboard was done, I had to detach the footboard from the side rails so that I could recover those as well. This is where it gets ugly, kids.

When they wouldn’t come apart, I went all CofC vball on it and put my back into that sucker and gave the footboard a big WHAP to knock it loose from the side rail. And then it jacked me in the face SO HARD that I heard real-life birdies tweeting and saw stars for a few minutes. And then, the next morning, I hatched a Cadbury egg, right there outta my forehead. In July. Happy early Easter.

So hot. Imagine trying to ice this thing to get the swelling to go down… biggest cold-headache ever.

But check out that detail!!  That was a $5 box of antique brass nailheads from (Michael’s, I think), a little elbow grease and one near-concussion.

Here’s how the rest of the studio turned out… those cameras move so fast! I wanted you guys to see more of it, in case you missed:

Lanterns are from HOMEGOODS!  Have you ever? Console was World Market and it’s so affordable. Desk & desk chair were Terra’s existing.

One really interesting thing I learned about doing a TV show is that you can’t use ANY artwork without the written consent of the original artist.  Like, not even an iPhone pic, and certainly not any sort of artwork you’d normally think nothing about scooping up from TJ Maxx, or even a garage sale. So the night before this reveal, I went to CVS, bought a piece of posteboard and some kiddos’ paints & paintbrushes, and painted THAT pink gem below.

With the help of my trusty co-blogger and bestie, Karrie, we stayed up till 1am at the dining room table painting this guy. What you didn’t hear last night on camera was Terra saying that it looked like Penny painted it…  bahahhahahaha. And she’s not wrong! But it was the best I could do with about $20 in the budget and 12 hours left to find scrounge up some art. Covet Living Original Artwork right there, kids.

I also had to use pics from my trip to Hawaii last year for the black & whites over the bed.

Frames are IKEA!

BIG THANKS to my homegirl Lauren at Hollywood at Home for helping me with pillows!!!

And thanks to my trusty off-camera man for helping me carry them, cuz I didn’t make it far past the front door. That bag weighed about 4 zillion pounds.

Look how pretty… aaaaaand it was right around this time when Terra told me no more pink/purple.

Breakfast, anyone? Nothing tickles my pickle more than a few really gorgeous vintage pillows on an all-white bed.

We kept Terra & Joe’s existing sofa (though it was MASSIVE) to make them kind of feel at home here, and also to help out budget-wise. It’s funny – it is SO BIG and it was 1 of 4 furniture layouts I did in CAD, and it even looked massive in the drawings… like it was going to swallow up the room. But in the space in real life, it totally worked. That doesn’t always happen.

That little plug-in wall sconce was from eBay… I was looking to use one from Schoolhouse Electric, but theirs have a weeks-long lead time and they’re also around $300, give or take, so I scoured Etsy & eBay. Ended up with this guy, who is brass and ORB/black… #mixedmetals. Which I came to find that Terra was NOT a fan of, but I needed that fixture to be two-toned to tie into the other dark and brass elements in the room and add some cohesiveness. Another note… that fella was just under $100 which was great for our budget, but is a great example of “you get what you pay for.” I was afraid if I touched it, it might fall off the wall (or break) because it was VERY fragile and not well made. You guys know I will cross 7 lanes of traffic if I see a Goodwill or an Estate Sale, so I appreciate saving where you can, but there are some things where it’s better to buy quality. I would’ve swapped that sucker out if I could but we were in a hustle.

The breakfast area may’ve been my favorite. Probably because of those cute little kumquats that I had one of the producers bring from his yard (what up J!) cuz they were impossible to find. The table settings I snapped up from Homegoods LITERALLY the night before. Rocks glasses are mine (Tarjay!)  Stools are from CB2.

(More behind the scenes)

…WHAT UP CAMERA CHRIS?! Best guy ever right there.

Rug was from Rugs USA and was a &#% STEAL! That 9×12 was on sale from $379. Drapery Panels are Pottery Barn Emery Linen drapes in Oatmeal, double width. Lantern Cory actually brought from home and gave to Terra. How much do we love him?

Did you notice that we were all MELTING during that reveal?? I think Joe said his “fat was crying” at one point and I almost peed my pants. It’s because it was about 105 degrees outside and the Studio didn’t have A/C… just a little rolling unit in the bathroom. Which is where everyone would huddle in between takes.

Otherwise, this scene KILLS ME. I’ve been cackling for days.

And this one warmed my little heart. ONE POINT GRIFFENDOR!!!! SLASH yay Terra for being open and coming around! Everybody’s giving her a lotta &$#% for pushing back so much (and oh, did she ever) but it’s easier said than done having some stranger come into your house and start goin’ to town. :

This made me cackle and spit out my food a few hours before the premiere:

This text from a client after the show also had me in stitches… she’s not wrong!

More of these zingers to come… cuz my microphone was on ALL THE TIME which isn’t always a good thing. PS they ALWAYS made me sit on a chair higher than Cory’s for these interviews. Why, I ask? Am I interviewing for the role of Paul Bunyan’s wife? Also.. you guys know I don’t wear makeup in real life, but def had to for on camera, and had it professionally done for these interviews, so I look a lot like Stephanie Ballard’s distant cousin, Stacy.:

And this is DEFINITELY some foreshadowing…

Stay tuned!! The show airs every Wednesday night for the next 5 weeks in a row! 10pm East Coast Time, 9pm Central, 10pm West Coast Time, and if you have Direct TV anywhere you can watch on the East Coast schedule!

Love you guys all for watching!! Thanks so much for all the support 🙂

Sunday Morning Musings | 12.10.17

Party peeeeoopppppppllllllle! Happy Sunday! Hope you’re still in your PJ’s and staring at your Christmas tree and watching the Hallmark Channel like I am right now…. And about to slam a bowl of chili for breakfast. I’d love it if C-funny could go ahead and get up so he could bring me said piping hot bowl of chili, but then I know he’d hijack the remote and turn off Hallmark, so that’s a pickle. PS ask me if my pants fit. PPS ask me if I care.

Since we’ve just dusted off our blog and are getting back in the swing of things, I thought I might start with a Musings post… I’ve been stockpiling my favorite things for MONTHS in hibernation, so I thought it was high time I spewed them all at you lovely people:

IF I COULD WEAR ONE THING EVER DAY FOR(EVA), THIS WOULD BE IT.

I’ve never met a doily I didn’t love.

OR THIS, ON A T-SHIRT.

Santa?

TRUFFLED GNOCCHI WITH MUSHROOM RAGU?

I just died. And then my already-tight pants got tighter. Sorry I’m not sorry BECAUSE LOOK AT THIS.

IF I STILL LIVED IN SO CAL, AND BOUGHT A LITTLE HOUSE BY THE BEACH…

…I would totally install this as an outdoor shower. And OMG people, the plumbing is copper with a – you know it – patina. No one has ever overused that word as much as I have.

BUT I LIVE HERE.

So I could shower outdoors if I wanted my lady bits to freeze shut. And this place lovely, just in a different way. Though I am missing my hot yoga class and crisp ocean air coming through the always-open windows like the dickens.

CAN MY HAIR LOOK LIKE THIS?

MAKES ME SO HAPPY.

Are these real and where do I find them?

LOVE A CORNER CABINET DONE THIS WAY.

Adding glass instead of a solid door at that corner makes it feel less closed off… and if it’s a blind corner (meaning you can reach through one cabinet into the guts of another) then I’m obsessed.

STILL IN LOVE. I think I’ve posted these no less than 7 times, don’t know the source, but do know that I need 2 hanging above my island.

HAS ANYONE SEEN HOME AGAIN?

I mean, it’s arguably a pretty bad movie, but of the delightful variety… because the sun-drenched decor & the music is so Nancy-Myers-chic that you wanna live in it. Probably because her daughter directed it. But look at the headboard covered in a Bolivian blanket.  And the perfectly mismatched tables and lamps.

UM, THAT WINE CELLAR.

I don’t even think it’s the wine or anything inside the cellar I particularly love… it’s the steel doors and the orate crown molding outside of it that makes it so chic.

SPEAKING OF CHIC, THIS IS EFFORTLESS.

I love that her hair is wavy but not perfectly coiffed with a curling iron. Love the layered necklaces. Love the mom jeans. Love the deep blue silk wrap top. Love it all. Bien sûr, elle est française.

THESE LAMPS.

They’re from The Future Perfect which is $$$$, but wondering if I can enlist a potter to make them for me for way less? I guess I just see so much of the same thing (design wise) alllllll the time, so it really makes me appreciate things that are so unique and that have a handmade quality to them. By Eric Roinestad.

UM, THIS STUFF IS DELICIOUS.

I’d recommend ordering a case… or 5.  Remind me to piggy back on our post last year about our fave wines and add this year’s newbies.

BESIDES AJA & ETSY, RUG & WEAVE IS A MY GO-TO SOURCE FOR VINTAGE RUGS.

This one is sold, but I almost used it in a project. Couldashouldawoulda.

BUT I DID BUY THIS ONE, AND IT’S EVEN MORE GORGEOUS IN PERSON.

LOVE THIS BATHROOM FROM SOUTHERN LIVING.

Layers of white + brass + something quirky (like those sconces) is always a good idea.

I REALIZE CHRISTMAS IS IN 2 WEEKS BUT…

I know you ho bags are going on Caribbean vacays in January, so you’re welcome. These pretties from Schutz are INSANE.

I MEAN C’MON.

SNAG THESE WHILE YOU’RE AT IT.

Does Fendi have BOGO? Uh that’s a hard HAYLE NAW. But if they did, I’d tell you to snap me up a pair, too. These are so retro, hanging on the Italian Riviera circa 1960 I can’t take it. I would’ve put ’em on my Gift Guide but I feel like Santa may’ve slapped me on the wrist for being a snob.

PERFECT FOR A HOLIDAY PARTY.

LOVE the skirt. But Jenna, the fur coat makes me sad.

BECAUSE THIS MUFFIN.

Just a wee arctic fox we ran into while we were strolling up the street in Creede a few weekends ago. He was just rescued from a fur farm in Minnesota, where he would’ve become something like a godawful fur hat. What a sweetie. He licked and nibbled my chin and that was it for me.

I CAN’T STOP TRYING TO PUT THESE IN PEOPLES’ BATHROOMS.

They pair well with everything – especially antiques.

THIS IS MY CALABASAS PROJECT… SEE HOW FUN, SEE HOW FUN??!

GENIUS.

The rainbow of Farrow & Ball colors, matched to Benjamin Moore… now. I’ll say this: this is a great idea and probably gets you as close enough. But I’m telling you, I don’t know what F&B puts in their colors – whether it’s stardust or sugar boogers – but they *are* actually impossible to replicate. Any paint mixing dude at any paint store will tell you the same thing. They just have so much depth and are so stunning. But because I have so many clients whose contractors insist on using either Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams, this comes in handy.

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHHAHAHAljfdkl;jfkl;

Kills me every time.

EVEN THE SINK HAS A DOILY.

Of course it’s from the UK’s House & Garden. This is probably a scene from the inside of Meghan Markle’s new powder bath chez Harry.

DIVINE.

I made this a few weeks ago and it was wonderful. I used an almond flour crust, and subbed in straight ricotta. PS good flaked sea salt and the chives are key.

COOL AF.

Client ES: can we talk BS into a pair of these in the front living room?

THIS IS OUR COLOR INSPO FOR THAT ROOM, FYI.

ONE OF THE BEST OUSHAKS I’VE EVER SEEN.

Sadly, it’s sold. #rugsaremydrugs

THIS IS A GREAT COFFEE TABLE.

In case anybody needs one.

I LOVE EVERYTHING SISTER PARISH DOES.

This one is Tuckerman in Ocean.

OOOOOOH BEEEETS!

Did you hear the Cinderella reference? (Jack the Mouse: “Oooooh BEEEEADS!”)…yeah K nevermind. But I love this watercolor and wanna frame it in a pretty little rustic frame in the kitchen.

OR THIS ONE.

LAUREN CONRAD’S COFFEE TABLE IS THE TITS.

There’s a seller in SoCal who said she could source it for me, but when I asked her the price she was too scared to tell me… kinda like saying the name Voldemort.

CUTEST 80’s LOB EVER.

THIS BAG IS B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

One sec while I go rob a bank to buy it. I mean, edit my Holiday Gift Guide.

EVERY HEARD OF MILTON AVERY?

I hadn’t either, but I do love some of his work, like Interlude 1960.

PERFECT FOR ALL SEASONS EXCEPT THE ONE WE’RE IN.

Doesn’t it have a Pretty Woman / picnic / 80’s sweetness to it?

WHERE WERE THESE WHEN I WAS TROLLING THE AISLES AT NORDY RACK.

Of course they’re from Sincerely Jules. What a ho.

I LOVE THESE SHORTS / UNDERSCOOBS.

I would also love it if I looked like that in those scoobs,

I CAN’T TELL WHAT I LIKE BETTER – THE ROCKS GLASS OR THE PILGRIM-Y PROPER TOP.

HAVE I POSTED THIS BEFORE?

Who cares, it’s rad.

I SO WANT SOMEONE TO TAKE A PIC LIKE THIS OF GUSSIE OUTDOORS.

PS: what’s better than a golden?  The answer: a whole gaggle of them.

WE’RE ALSO THINKING ABOUT GETTING A LITTLE GUS.

Golden owners: Tell me!! Smart or not smart? I think I mentioned this before.. but I genuinely don’t know if it’s a great or terrible idea. Would a little one keep Gus young, give him a buddy, and keep us from both jumping off a cliff when (OMG I can’t even think about a world without Gus) – but when Gus isn’t here anymore? I’ve heard people with goldens tell me they would NEVER have only 1 – to always have 2.

Or would it be too much – a puppy with a blind dog – and would Gus feel like we were replacing him? I mean, look at him. He’s such a love.

I FEEL LIKE I WOULD SLEEP BETTER IF I SLEPT ON THESE.

#doiliesorbust

BECAUSE THIS IS THE PRETTIEST-IN-PINK CHEESE BOARD I’VE EVER SEEN.

LOVE THE PENDANT, LOVE THE TOP.

Makes me wanna go to Mexico, stat, and drink margs on the beach. By Sir the Label.

PERFECTLY STYLED COFFEE TABLE.

{ via Lauren Conrad | Domaine }

I’M DYING TO DO THIS IN A GIRL’S BATH.

Have seen it installed in every other color way, but not this one… it’s a perfect, subtle, blush color.

ALSO, IT’S BEEN DONE. I GET IT.

On the walls at Wabi Sabi and also in the Cupcakes & Cashmere chick’s bathroom, and probably a bazillion other places. But it’s so so dreamy I can’t help myself. Going into one lucky gal’s powder bath in Charleston Spring 2018.

PERFECT SCONCE TO GO WITH.

Silly girl! That doesn’t go at all!” -I legit just heard all my relatives back in Indiana say that. Oh, but it’s a perfect juxtaposition, and just edgy enough to balance out the super femme florals. Email me to order: stephanie.m.ballard@gmail.com

PROOF THAT EVERYTHING DOESN’T HAVE TO MATCH.

It just has to play nicely together (like this entryway does so perfectly). And you’ll hear me say that 999x this season on Terra’s Big House – often with a vein bulging out of my forehead. PS our show premieres Wednesday, December 13th at 10/9 central on Lifetime – set your DVR’s!

WHO NEEDS A SOLITAIRE WHEN YOU CAN HAVE THIS GUY?

For probably 14x the cost. Best of luck in your upcoming nuptials to Neil Lane.

MEATLOAF ON REPEAT.

I make this at least 1x / week and it’s SO GOOD. Who would’ve thought oatmeal in meatloaf would be good? Only thing I change is sautéing a few shallots and 2 gloves of garlic and adding to the mix.

PERFECT FOR A DUDE’S OFFICE.

Overstock… well done.

OUTFIT & BUN ON POINT.

THE ONLY THING BETTER THAN CLÉ’S WEATHERED WHITE ZELLIGE

is the same tile but in this rosy blush color.

THE PRETTIEST BATHROOM I EVER DID SEE.

Note how the designer (Gillian Pinchin, hi-5 girl) used the same stone throughout the bath, but changed up the tile sizes/shapes and the directions: there’s subway in an offset brick on one wall, fish scale on another, and the same subway but laid in a herringbone on the floor. It’s genius. Using the same material but switching things up the way she did gives the room depth and visual interest without making it loud. Also, she couldn’t have picked a prettier tile. From Mosaic House.

I DO REALIZE I’M AN OLD LADY, BUT IT’S FLAME MAHOGANY PEOPLE.

And if you ever, EVER see anything like this anywhere, do me a solid and get a running start, tackle it, then take it home and put some mod sconces above it to keep it fresh.

CAROLINA HERRERA = A GIRL AFTER MY OWN HEART.

Who wouldn’t feel like a fashion-forward Disney princess in this?

ALL I WANNA DO IS MOUNT THESE QUEEN ANNE-STYLE VENETIAN MIRRORS OVER 2 CHESTS.

I BRAKE FOR BLUE & PINK.

Love the washed-out, watercolor-y pastel hues in this rug.

MAYBE THE ONLY LEATHER CHAIRS THAT’LL TICKLE BOTH YOUR PICKLES.

I mean, I like leather but I hit my quota quick – I think it’s better when it’s peppered into a design, not plastered all over it. But I live with a boy (hint: not Gus) who would clad everything in leather if he could. These Art Deco beauties are interesting and unique enough for everyone to love.

SO PERFECT IN FRONT OF A WINDOW.

About 33″W x 36″H and feels so British chic to me.

SEE?

THE PRETTIEST NON-ANTIQUE SIDEBOARD I’VE SEEN IN A MINUTE.

Great in an entry with 2 lamps and a huge piece of artwork, if you have the space. Or a dining room.

CUTEST SIDE TABLE I EVER SAW.

Can I put my martini down on you, little fella?

I’M NOT MUCH FOR LABELS BUT –

This Gucci belt is to die. The whole look is.

THIS FABRIC ISN’T FOR EVERYONE…

But I could see it very sparingly used – e.g. in a high-powered bad ass lady’s very serene, clean-lined and pristine and almost hotel-esque bedroom. Via 3 euros or a long lumbar as the crown jewel on the bed.

Have a great week, guys!!!  Don’t forget to tune in on Wednesday night at 10/9 central on Lifetime!  DID I TELL YOU I FILMED A HOME RENO SHOW THIS YEAR? Whoops, I didn’t. Cuz I forgot to blog. But should be a real sh*t show so probably best to tune in.

xoxoxoxooxoxox,
