One Room Challenge – Week 2

Share This:

It’s Wednesday again and One Room Challenge time.

I’m happy to have the the help of my great office manager Emily and intern Jessica to pull the makeover off in time. My work schedule is booked solid and the support is crucial.

The master bedroom has a newly built deck outside the sliding doors with new banana leaf plants and black and white striped lounge furniture soon to arrive.

The plan for the room is something along these lines…


The bedroom is spacious so there will be plenty of seating…and loads of yellow.


I hung a Kelly Wearstler light fixture in the room a couple of weeks back that needed adjusting and fixing..



The bedroom already have this mid century dresser from Midcentury LA.


The bottom part of the wall has been painted a dark tan.


The casing around doors and windows have been painted black.

However… I’m thinking of evening adding even more black trim.

I’m developing my own line of wallpaper, and this Art Deco Arches wall paper in tan I’m thinking on using in here. We are in sample hell, but hopefully it will be sorted out so we can use it in here.


My new Midcentury Modern headboard in navy velvet with black piping was just completed.

The low slung mid century thing is a new vibe for me but a must for this house…


The headboard comes in a few retro colors, but this house is all about blue so I selected the indigo blue headboard.



The bedroom has a L-O-N-G way to go and things are just being ordered.

But I’m committed to the ORC deadline!

Have a look at rest of the group and check out their fin makeover.s

My new living room rug- the geometric shag

Share This:

My living room carpet finally arrived, and it was worth the wait.

It’s my first design of a line of geometric shags for my Jill Sorensen Lifestyle. It’s super soft underfoot with just enough modern as well as organic vibe.  I’m happy!

For our living room I used a cream base with a dark brown pattern, but these shags will also be available with cobalt,  jade green and black patterns.

With all this creamy softness, I can’t wait to paint the living room walls blue.

Hope you had a great Easter weekend!

Color as some of you know is something I can’t get enough of.

I’m happy to let you know that a few weeks ago we started offering the bedding in 18 custom colors. Designers and customers have e-mailed for a long time and requested certain colors so I’m happy to finally be able to offer endless design possibilities with the bedding.

My new dining room carpet & kitchen wallpaper

Share This:

The new rug design for our dining room has finally arrived!  Before I could even unpack it my two dogs of course had to sit on it. Not sure why dogs always have to do that?

The carpet is the first item in a slightly new design direction that I’m are doing that I’m very excited about. It’s a little bit ethnic/modern/ranch inspired and the perfect mate to our open kitchen.


It’s called the ARROW Carpet.

The dogs approved…


..and were not happy when I asked them to move.

The cotton carpet is going to go underneath the dining table which will go right next to the kitchen island.

Can’t wait to put it all together.


For now the carpet will be rolled up and put away while we wait for the dining table.

I’m excited to see how it will not only blend with the kitchen, but also with my new grass cloth wallpaper.

The Canary Tropical Bamboo which is my first attempt at a wallpaper design will go on the wall next to the big white tile wall.


Can’t wait.

Have a great weekend!

How exciting!! My bedding on ELLEN TV!

Share This:

Now this is fun!

I looove Ellen de Generes, and now I love her even more after catching my bedding in one of the Houzz makeovers on Ellen TV.  People with bedrooms in dire need of a makeover could e-mail in to the show and Houzz would send a designer to make it over. I’m thrilled that the designer selected the Jill Sorensen Lifestyle Grey Lucky bedding!!

You can view the video segment HERE.

Below are some screenshots from the show.

And look how excited they get to see their new bedroom reveal.

Bedroom Design Idea – Boho Glam!

Share This:

Here is a bedroom design idea to steal for your space.

Mix antelope print, Kelly Green bedding, gold accents and faux sheepskin, hang a rattan chair, snake skin wallpaper in the bathroom and you have the perfect recipe for an on trend look, yet one that is unique and unusual enough to show you march to your own drums.

Keep it all animal neutral except add to the mix in  one or two strong colors to spice up the relaxed look.  Personally I’m pretty obsessed with Kelly Green mixed with tans, black and gold!

BohoGlamBedroom designidea-JillsorensenLifestyle

View details for the look here.

Paint colors:   Kelly Green // Arizona Tan


The Deco Bedding in Kelly Green has Asian influence which feels current, mixes well with ethnic prints and adds glamour.

Mix in some…


…irresistible Antelope wall paper on one wall.

Or maybe its in your bathroom?

Now you’ve got the rustic modern going on.

Faux sheep skin hides casually thrown on the bed and in a chair gives the room a relaxed cozy vibe.


Jill Sorensen Lifestyel-Mark monogram pillows

Black Mark Pillow and Asphalt Monogram Pillow

Mix in Glamorous geometric embroidered pillows to keep it modern.

Green Lamp

Add a sleek Green Lacquered Lamp with brass base.  (I sourced this for a client’s foyer this week and became so obsessed with it we had to add it to our very small curated lighting section on our site.)

It’s irresistible!

Additionally the “piece the resistance”…for your bedroom…

Hnaging rattan chair

A chic hanging rattan chair.

Natural Maze Jill Sorensen

Our Maze carpet now available in MAZE Natural.

The pale modern trellis pattern is the perfect subtle backdrop.


Jonathan Adler Sputnik Chandelier

Add a Sputnik chandelier. I love this one from Jonathan Adler but it’s expensive. I recommend searching for vintage chandeliers online.

Jill Sorensen Lifestyle goes to Vegas Market

Share This:

This has been a crazy busy week as we are heading to the Las Vegas Market tomorrow to debut my label Jill Sorensen Lifestyle. We have a U-Haul truck filled to the brim with bedding and stuff that Mehr will bravely drive to Vegas.

We’ve been been working around the clock to get stuff ready,  adding some new products and streamlining the website for a  better look.  Ive been managing that in between ordering faucets and tile and making endless renovating decisions. No wonder I really haven’t slept at night!

If you are a designer, store owner or guest at Las Vegas Market, come on by and say hello to Mehreen and me. We’ll be in booth C5-131. Looking forward to meeting some of you!

A lot of the stuff coming out has been inspired by whats right outside my front door. These amazing Camellia’s are lending their color to the Magenta Mark embroidered pillow.

The big tropical leafs leaning on my door stoop have made their way on to my first sheet pattern. We’ll have our first prototype at Vegas Market of what we call….

Handling all of this out of this little bungalow which is stuffed to the brim is a bit of a challenge. We are excited for the move and big office space!


Hope to see you in Vegas!!
