Home Away from Home
Remember how we spilled the beans on the rendezvous with John & Sherry in Nashvegas?
Oh right. Not really any spilled beans.
Let’s fix that, shall we?
We met up with some of our very favorite bloggers, John & Sherry Petersik, for a 24 hour romp around the city. It was full of pancakes, Parthenons, and pleasant park patrolling with a little country twist. Basically it was more fun than lickable wallpaper. Just think about that one for a minute!
Our home away from home was Hotel Preston and it was full of swankiliciousness. At the very moment of entering we knew that this would be the perfect place to find inspiration for our very own homes. And even though our styles are a bit different (Sherry has a modern flare and I am more on the cluttered side of style), we both loved the thought of incorporating some of that Preston swank into our idea files and possibly even applying those chic welcoming-ways for our own set of houseguests.
So the question was – how do two bloggers share some great hotel inspiration and suggest DIY projects, comfy ways to host a housecrasher, and affordable alternatives to some fabulous & fun decor ideas?
Well, we pulled a Speidi.
(mom – I’ll explain later)
John whipped out the Flip video camera (a la Spencer style minus mass creepiness) and we went to work lipsyncing a horrible music video hosting a two-part series of ways that we gleened inspiration from Hotel Preston’s decor. Wanna take a look? Well, first – head over to Young House Love and check out the first part of our video.
and this is the important part.
come on back over here and watch part two.
or you can buck conformity and do it backwards.
But I can’t promise that it won’t throw your whole day off.
So without further diversions – here is the video chock full of hotel inspiration and a pretty rockin’ pink slip that looks like it is just my size :) Enjoy!
