Many of you may not know that I have been a guest blogger for Wayfair for a few months now. Wayfair is a Boston based company, online purveyor of housewares and furnishings, and I decided to join their blogging team when Ms. Kris Kennedy (formerly editor-extraordinaire of Better Homes & Gardens) signed on to become their chief of Editorial and Content– a fresh, innovative role for this young and progressive company.
Wayfair is a bit of a giant; millions of product under one umbrella at varying price ranges. Truly, there is something for everyone on the site, no matter your taste of budget. What struck me as most compelling, is the company’s openness to embrace social media with action… not words. Hiring Kris and her team said it all to me. It was a huge move in demonstrating Wayfair’s full investment in social media and curated online content (a well thought out endeavor) to reach their customer and create a place for buyers to read, learn, see and visit, as well as shop for about ten trillion items for their homes. Everything from cookware to Missoni pillows…
Anyway, I learned this afternoon that Wayfair designed a brand new home furnishing scheme as part of the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Part of Ellen’s biggest “giveaway” yet, Wayfair has furnished the home of Lisa Jarmon, an Ellen audience member in-need. How cool to produce something so visually appealing and gift it to a total stranger? Take a peek at the home– a bright and modern take on family living in neutrals, oranges, turquoises, reds and yellows, it screams “happy” to me. Watch Ellen show Lisa her new home here!
My favorite item in the Dream Home? Without a doubt, the turquoise trunk/coffee table in the Living Room. Feels Asian inspired to me–love the color(s) and can think of about 4 places I would use it: playroom, kids’ room, casual common room or even at the foot of a bed. There are probably more, I just can’t think of them on demand… Find it
