    Love the cord hiders!

  2. Wendy Williamson on September 18, 2022 at 3:58 am

    Love your content. As an interior designer myself (semi-retired) I love your style and ideas and look forward to your latest videos.
    But…Beanie, I thought you were Canadian. That is a toque, and you know it. 🙂 JK

  3. Benjamin Cutting on September 18, 2022 at 4:02 am

    Helpful as ever. Thank you!

  4. Kristen McGowan on September 18, 2022 at 4:02 am

    Happy Wednesday! I’m sharing all of my decorating tips & tricks in this video so you can decorate your home like an interior designer as well! Let me know below which trick you want to try in your home!!😍

  5. Subarayadu on September 18, 2022 at 4:03 am

    Thanks you for all these amazing tips. Do you help with decorating?

  6. Gloria Galvan on September 18, 2022 at 4:04 am

    Loved the stool idea

  7. Zimińscy Pl on September 18, 2022 at 4:05 am

    Wszystkie pomysły ciekawe, oprócz sztucznych kwiatów. Z bliska najczęściej wyglądają tandetnie. Co za problem pójść do lasu lub na łąkę i pozbierać kilka gałązek. 😊

  8. crazymelomanka on September 18, 2022 at 4:07 am

    Thank you so much for your decoration tips! Will definitely use them for designing and decorating my apartment. And by the way, I really like your dress)

  9. Susan Parker on September 18, 2022 at 4:09 am

    Loved the seasonal stems for fall. I’m going to try this.

  10. Kalyani Lanke on September 18, 2022 at 4:09 am

    Hi Kristen I’m from India and I love ur decorating ideas. We recently purchased a new house and I literally needed ur suggestions for interior designing. Can u just give me appointment to consult you and design my new home online

  11. Adriana Lazar on September 18, 2022 at 4:10 am

    Using tape to plan my photowall🙈 you are a Genius ! Thank you

  12. Justyna Maslanka on September 18, 2022 at 4:11 am

    Kristen thank you very much for your professional experiences and always an creative director idea. I really appreciate for it and I love this. With plenty positive energy 🤗❤️🍀

  13. Michelle Olson on September 18, 2022 at 4:13 am

    This has more to do with clothes shopping than tips.

  14. Flavia Aparecida on September 18, 2022 at 4:14 am

    My God I am addicted to your video ❤️❤️❤️thanks for all the valuable information

  15. Caroline McGarry-Ross on September 18, 2022 at 4:16 am

    Another super user friendly video. Thank you!

  16. Janice Meyers-Saltzman on September 18, 2022 at 4:18 am

    I already implemented the wire covers & the tray on my coffee table holding 3 accessories.

  17. Nathalie Landry on September 18, 2022 at 4:18 am

    Love this video. I’m no designer so I need all the help possible. Thank you.

  18. Emerald on September 18, 2022 at 4:20 am

    Very helpful, Thank you

  19. Latonya Barber on September 18, 2022 at 4:23 am

    Going to work on the throwblankets and books ideas first

  20. Lady Lake on September 18, 2022 at 4:26 am

    Thanks Kristen, will the rug tape harm my laminate floor finish once I want to remove the rug?

  21. Vida Sammy on September 18, 2022 at 4:27 am

    Love, love your ideas. So many good ones. Even though I can’t use everything, you give me food for thought, thank you.

  22. Rana Hasan on September 18, 2022 at 4:28 am

    Amazing tips Kristen, wish you could decorate my home!

  23. Mechell Orr on September 18, 2022 at 4:28 am

    Excellent ideas! Thank you for sharing ❤

  24. Michelle McCormack on September 18, 2022 at 4:29 am

    10 great ideas for someone starting to decorate their home or even someone like me who has lived in 11 different homes over our 30+ years of marriage … thank you!!!

  25. Pat Rany on September 18, 2022 at 4:30 am

    Been following you for a few years now. Love all your videos. I have used many of your tips and suggestions. Slowly but surely I am making my house my home my style and getting compliments on it. I am with you on hiding everything that’s not pretty to the eye… No getting my husband in sync with that, that’s a different story, but he’s catching on

  26. mayanja derrick on September 18, 2022 at 4:31 am

    Thanx for the decor ideas talk about small roam decor

  27. Ashley Marie on September 18, 2022 at 4:31 am

    First of all.. love your videos!! Second of all, amazing idea with the wall sconces! I was thinking of getting some for our bedroom project and wasn’t sure what to do with the wire but I love that and it’s nice and affordable!

  28. Екатерина on September 18, 2022 at 4:31 am

    The books decoration tip is horrible. How do I know what book is it if it’s turned? Books are for READINF, that’s not a decoration.

  29. R Y on September 18, 2022 at 4:31 am

    So helpful!!!

  30. Viji Jeevan on September 18, 2022 at 4:31 am
  31. HerrFinsternis on September 18, 2022 at 4:32 am

    Who reverses their books, that’s the dumbest thing I ever heard and I watch a lot of political debates.

    There’s some cool tips in there and the one that caught me by surprise (beside the bookthing) was the throw blanket over the back of the couch one. That looks splendid I love it

  32. sue mckinney on September 18, 2022 at 4:34 am

    I didn’t think I would learn anything new, but you always have great ideas! I also love that you show beautiful rooms behind you as examples. You’re fun to watch and easy to listen to. Thanks for a great channel!

  33. Gail Bissell on September 18, 2022 at 4:38 am

    I love the idea of turning my books around…I used this handy tip when I was in a small flat and it gave the appearance of space, less clutter.

  34. ipek usta on September 18, 2022 at 4:38 am

    love your channel 🥰

  35. Michelle Hudson on September 18, 2022 at 4:40 am

    Great ideas, especially love the suggestion on changing flowers and pillows with seasonal changes. I also change out my bedding ensemble with the change of the season. Enjoyed this video.

  36. Kim Bullett on September 18, 2022 at 4:41 am

    Hi Kristen! Girl. You were made for tv and public speaking! Random question….what is the small tube of caulk or wood filler you often use and the tube has essentially a built in scraper on the back end? I keep watching older videos of yours but am not finding it linked. Thank you!

  37. Jennifer Rudolph on September 18, 2022 at 4:42 am

    L😍very you Kristen! I watch each new video and can’t wait til the next! I always look forward to all your content. You are also so beautiful and you have a soothing voice. Your videos are like my SPA for decorating, haha! – I relax and enjoy!!!!

  38. DirtBikeEvent on September 18, 2022 at 4:43 am

    My apartment is what I call early Salvation Army.

  39. Carmen Sosa on September 18, 2022 at 4:44 am

    I feel like I never know what to do with the walls in my house, it’s been kind of stressful because I also think less is more😩

  40. Paulo Montero on September 18, 2022 at 4:45 am

    A little stol by your tub. No amber.

  41. Barb Oetter on September 18, 2022 at 4:48 am

    Kristin you have inspired me to take an interest in decorating. Our home is nearly 50 and we haven’t done much. Now we are remodeling three bathrooms and our kitchen. I’m confident I can manage the construction project now. You make it look easy and your energy is wonderful. Thanks

  42. Lorraine Dean on September 18, 2022 at 4:49 am

    I am a new comer and I find your videos so helpful. I am in this home 16 Yrs and never really felt like home. Decorating I find to be intimidating. Thank you for channel. Also I would never turn my books in reverse except the one particular one you have.

  43. Amy G on September 18, 2022 at 4:52 am

    The stool is such a great and easy idea thank you!

  44. Meisha Welcome on September 18, 2022 at 4:53 am

    Does rug tape mess up your floors when ou try to pull the rug up?

  45. Kathrin Abels on September 18, 2022 at 4:53 am

    I implement most of these tips already, but it’s always great to be reminded to mix things up seasonally, thank you 🙂 plus, I think I’ll bite the bullet and finally install cable covers now haha

  46. Susan Wolfla on September 18, 2022 at 4:55 am

    backwards books are ridiculous.

  47. Adeeba anwar on September 18, 2022 at 4:56 am

    Thanks for sharing these tips and your way of talking is so polite and attractive 😊

  48. Sylvie Normand on September 18, 2022 at 4:56 am

    Lover Love Love !

  49. ano070602 on September 18, 2022 at 4:56 am

    Making a room clean and neat is great. However trying to keep up with trends only cost you money.
    Make your home your home. You are the one who lives their. Your not putting your house in a magazine everyday.
