Se llama Gwen, aunque en Instagram es conocida como The Makerista, y desde bien pequeña sintió la necesidad de crear todo tipo de cosas. Empezó con la música, siguió con la joyería, y recorrió el mundo de la moda y el marketing hasta llegar a la que parece ser su mayor pasión: la decoración. Y decimos que lo parece porque pasa sus días planificando y diseñando el hogar que comparte con su familia, una casa de estilo clásico donde cada detalle es un reflejo de la clase y el buen gusto.
¿Te animas a verla? ¡No tiene desperdicio!
We hadn’t done holiday pictures in a few years. This time around a more fancy approach felt fresh and fun. Domino didn’t necessarily agree but we got some good shots (and some funny shots) and I’m sharing them, along with how to put together outfits without being too matchy-matchy, over on the blog tonight.

If you asked me my favorite part of this room there would be no way I could give you an answer. From the bed curtains, to the art wall, to the little dollhouse my dad made - they’re all my favorite! And while the details excite, the workhorses are just as good. The dresser from @lampsplus (yes, they sell more than lamps, some great furniture in fact) is a piece that can work for Milly forever, or transition to a dining room buffet or media console in a pinch. #sharemylampsplus #girlsroom #oneroomchallenge
You all have been so kind about our #oneroomchallenge space, thank you so much for your support! @weavegotcha did an impeccable job with the @fabricut + @stroheimfabrics velvet, and then I threw in a game changer the night we styled - that tassel trim! I bought it at a junk shop over a year ago and have been waiting for just the right spot to use it. When I was only left with a few inches of the stuff I knew this was the exact place it was meant for! You can see more of this room’s transformation on the blog. #girlsroom
While much of the room is meant to grow with the girls, this art area was put together specifically for a 5-year-old. My dad cut down a thrifted console table that makes the perfect desk to spread out projects, and the art is playful and fun. As Milly and Domino grow the console can be replaced with a vanity or another dresser, and the art can be switched up too. #girlsroom #oneroomchallenge #kidsroom
Many of you thought the wood room was my #oneroomchallenge, but I'm just not all there and decided to work on two rooms at a time! Can you believe the power of paint?! Swipe left to see the before, and if you need painters and are in the Kansas City area, I can't recommend the guys that did this job enough! Head to the blog to see what other room we're planning to tackle in the next six weeks! #transformationtuesday #onawednesday #woodroom @oneroomchallenge
A day spent with @justinsalemmeyer and my sister is a day well spent! We shot something a bit different for The Makerista today, and I'm so excited to share it with you all soon. Justin has such a gift, and I love that while he's here he's always asking to shoot more than what I ask for. This mantle is my favorite in the house, and it might make me look little, but it's just really big - I'm 5'8"! http://liketk.it/2sDnH #liketkit @liketoknow.it Photo by @justinsalemmeyer
Planning a gender neutral nursery that still involves lots of color sounds tricky. While the bones of the sunroom would have remained the same, if Domino would have come out a boy, there would have been some very different styling. Head to the blog to see how this wallpaper could also work in a boy's nursery. (You know you've got to go because you don't believe me... ) @larkphotos #sunroomstyle #nursery
Thanks for all of your kind words on the refresh! It's a mix of new, things I had (like this bamboo folding chair), and things I made (like these blush curtains for the French doors that lead into my closet). Having a grown up retreat feels so wonderful. Don't leave your master bedroom as the last "to do." You'll never regret moving it up the list!

While I love walking away from the One Room Challenge with a completely finished space, most of my rooms don't go that way. We completed the bones of the library almost a year ago, but it's been a revolving door of furnishings and accessories since then. Taking my time and picking pieces as they make themselves known (like the pheasant that's been living in my in-laws attic storage) feels really nice. How do you like to design?
It's hard to believe it, but just a few weeks ago this corner of the backyard was lifeless and only contained a tired-looking sandbox filled with neon plastic toys. Thanks to @bedbathandbeyond and a lot of sweat and bugbites, we've created a space to gather with friends and family from spring through fall. Head to the blog for the full makeover! #ad #bedbathandbeyond #outdoorliving
