A lot of people e-mailed me and said they missed my segment and house tour on The Nate show and wanted to see it, so I’m posting it here. (Cringe, cringe..)

The reality behind the scenes was this…I scurried, cleaned and organized the house which is still not finished (scanning shots don’t hide stuff!), my mother had just arrived from Sweden, Luke was having a meltdown over home work, my friend Casey Collings kindly came over (even though sick) to tape me, after a few takes the camera battery went dead, we were losing sun light, found Luke’s flip camera to quickly finish it with.  But despite all the drama the editors made the house look really cheerful!!

The segment at the actual show was cut in the very last seconds before going on due to overtime, so my visit on set was very brief!  So one thing I’m learning with these things is to…GO WITH THE FLOW!!!

Of course now that I have a store, I want to share some of the items I have in my house that I absolutely adore that we’re carrying on LiveLikeYou.

THE BOTTICELLI MIRROR  $ 890

I wrote about this before. But I’ve been crazy about this one ever since I first saw it. I call it the Dorothy draper mirror. It’s HUGE 59″ tall and makes a big impression. My fireplace is tall so you can’t really see how big it is.

It hangs above the fire mantle in the living room that you see in the background in the beginning of the tape.

A couple of Marmalade Design pillows that add nice graphics in my library.

ORANGE GREEK KEY PILLOW $ 198

And my favorite BLACK & WHITE GREEK KEY PILLOW $ 198

You can see them in my library. They make an old Crate & Barrell couch and a simple slip covered chair pop. It was the least expensive way I could think of to add some interest to the room. It’s a whole different room without them!!

Then here’s another mirror I went nuts over that I’ve already posted about.

BELLA STARBURST MIRROR $ 998

It hangs like a pretty jewel over my master bedroom fireplace. It really made me smile just opening the box!

In the bedroom I also have the Marmalade Design Pagoda Headboard.

PAGODA HEADBOARD $ 1150

Don’t have a professional image of this on site yet, but we will.

It’s in a really nice washable chenille/velvet with nickel nail heads. On the tape unfortunately it doesn’t look right because the couch at the end of the bed doesn’t match, waiting for new one, and bedside tables and lamps are also wrong!! Soon…soon….

The bedding is a line of graphic colorful hotel bedding I’m coming out with.

And last , but not least…

TURQUOISE FOO DOGS $ 118/PAIR that I’m kind of having a love affair with.

I want to put them in every room in the house because they look fantastic anywhere!

Here’s the pretty boy on my foyer table. You can see it in the end of the video when I say goodbye.

Anyway – I will keep improving until I can share all the complete after pictures! Hope you’re having a great week!

    Oh Jill…it turned out perfect and no one would have guessed that it was a mad house behind the scenes at all. You looked fab and your home just as gorgeous as you! Great job and again I loved what you wore to the Nate Berkus show!

    You were fab on Nate and your home was one to envy :)

    What a beautiful home. I love your color choices and how each room seems to come alive, bright, fun and cheery. You make it look so easy but in my own small home, I'm finding making the right color choices difficult. Thanks for sharing the video. Hope Nate has you back on his show again for a more in depth interview!

    That was a terrific segment and the houes looked gorgeous!!! I'm curious about the bracelet on your right arm. Any significance?

    I actually watched your Nate Show segment.
    Loved every minute of it.
    I am so sorry to hear that you were brought on near the end and time was running out.
    I know I was at the end of taping day as well my first time.
    Luckily my last visit I was smack dabbed first!
