The OKC Home Show was two weeks ago and I wanted to share with you some of my favorite things from this year’s show.
I usually take my camera, walk around, and snap any old thing that catches my eye. As a social media manager, I am fascinated at how each individual business chooses to brand their own space inside the show. I have to confess I am sort of a marketing junkie so it’s a weird but fun way to walk around the show with a different pair of lenses.
The Tiny House Village was the big attraction this year and they were so enchanting you had to explore each one.
This home was built with a recycled shipping container by Custom Container Living.
My kiddos could really imagine themselves living there – this was their favorite part of the show!
I gave a quick tour of the Container House on Facebook BUT the bad connection cut my video short! I have to say I was SO impressed with the finishes in this container house. They were gorgeous! I talked the owner into letting me film this video and I had a great talk with him. He said, all-in with the upgraded finishes in this tiny house it would cost $65,000.
I don’t think tiny living is something that would be doable (for me) with small kids but retirement or single-hood would be a really fun way to live. Do you think you could live in a tiny house?
Another one of my favorites from the show was a vignette challenge from At Home Stores. They challenged event attendees to create a vignette with a huge pile of At Home goodies and post it to social media. Whomever’s social media post got the most likes would win every single thing in their vignette.
I didn’t participate because 1. The contest was over by the time I meandered over to their booth and 2. I don’t think it’s fair to have someone win who has almost 100,000 social media followers. I was secretly rooting for a real person to win.
This was just the pile of pillows At Home had to choose from. You shoulda seen the accessory pile!
High five to At Home for this fun and interactive idea!
I think the most swoon worthy booth in the entire show was from a local interiors store, Interior Gilt.
I just want to work there!
And pretend it’s my house.
I would call all of my friends over, serve Moscow Mules, and play the Hipster Cocktail Party station on Pandora.
Then immediately get fired.
It would be a short lived experience but so worth it.
I especially loved the peace sign hand.
And the middle finger one too. =)
They are conflicting attitudes but both decor worthy.
Let’s also talk about the lucite leg stool.
And that pillow.
Oh, and that pop of orange on that glossy chair!
Interior Gilt, if you want to hire a rogue employee PLEASE CALL ME.
Or to collaborate on a sponsored post. Call me for that too. You will be much more impressed with my work ethic in that capacity.
Every where you turned there were fun and unique design ideas for your home and garden.
Like packed to the brim!
I wish I would have gotten this artists card so I could give her credit for her amazing work!
Jason Cameron from DIY Network’s Man Caves & Desperate Landscapes was the headlining speaker for the weekend. Have you seen his headshot? Lawdy. If something ever happens to Scott I could see a major landscaping emergency in my near future. I thought women would be waiting for his autograph by the bunches but if you notice in this picture it was all men waiting to meet him! Ha!
Food truck alley had tons of unique food choices but this 1974 double decker bus from Junction Coffee stole the show. You could actually sit on the second level and enjoy your coffee! Maybe I don’t get out enough but this was a great concept I had never seen!
I loved creating a She Shed for the January Home Show! You will have to stay tuned to see how I get my hands dirty for the upcoming OKC Home Show this March 24-26th, 2017.
Teaching classes all weekend was so fun and I can’t wait to see you all again soon!
