Alright. Calm down, please ;]

I am giving away an interior design consultation.

Yes, for free!

This is a one-time thing as I’m no longer doing long-distance consultations.

However, the reason I’m breaking this policy this one time is– I am pleased, no wait phenomenally honored to be a part of the dozens of beautiful interior design blogs and magazines on an app called

 

bHome

 

bhome home and garden laurel home interior design consultation

 

What is bHome?

bHome is a curated collection of some of the best home & garden bloggers, designers AND shelter magazines such as Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Better Homes and Gardens, Domino and Lonny.

And now Laurel Home!

bHome makes available all of the content of these sources in one place– Their pinterest, instagram and twitter feeds, along with their blog posts.

It is (also) FREE. You download from the App store or Google Play (if you are on Android.)  The app is for both mobile phones and tablet.

Then, scroll through and enjoy the beauty, inspiration and advice these sources have to offer.

Or, you can TAP the stars of your favorite blogs to create your own unique feed.

You can also share to social media or email something that catches your eye, to a friend. Simply TAP the arrow under any image to do so.

And folks, these are all gorgeous sources.

The feed is refreshed every 20 minutes so if you’re online at the bank, grocery store (that’s a good one), waiting for the doctor, commuting…  you can get on bHome for a shot of inspiration and beauty.

This is a great way to save time by getting to the best advice, images & inspiration right away.  For instance, let’s say you were looking for the best gray paint colors, you would get my blog and any others that are talking about gray paint.

    Hi Laurel. :)Thanks for sharing so much beauty through your blog. I’m impressed with your work. Accept my compliments.ReplyCancel

  • Joan - June 17, 2016 - 11:33 PM

    I was unable to download bhome on my tablet. I have an android tablet and google play did not have bhome listed as an option.ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - June 17, 2016 - 11:43 PM

      Hi Joan,

      I’m not sure myself. I do know for apple, it needs to be downloaded on your phone first and then used as a phone app so maybe it’s the same for an android tablet?

      Also, did you use the link for google play on the bHome website?ReplyCancel

  • Shirley @Housepitality Designs - June 16, 2016 - 11:01 PM

    Welcome to the great community of bHome…it is the greatest!….Love your “bHome” pic on the app!ReplyCancel

  • Christine - June 16, 2016 - 10:43 PM

    Laurel,

    Congrats!! What a fabulous accomplishment and great company to be in. I’m excited to check out this new resource. I had no problem downloading on my iPad and you are correct, the message icon will have a small yellow dot letting you know you have a message. When you click on it the message pops up with the link to click to enter. As always, enjoy your blog and your participation in the comments. You’re rockin!ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - June 16, 2016 - 11:37 PM

      Hi Christine,

      Thank you so much! I really appreciate your kind words! It’s been one of the most difficult days behind the scenes and I’ve had quite a few. You know it’s bad when your geek’s geek in India has to spend 45 minutes skyping with a geek at google. And that is only a small portion.

      Growing pains and also making the site all the more secure but why am I going on and on… lolReplyCancel

      • Christine - June 17, 2016 - 9:39 AM

        I find lemon drops, or your cocktail of choice, a nice charcuterie plate and online shopping help. I feel some of your pain, I have managerial oversight of our web developer and his team at work…geek on nerd on geek – fries my brain. Keep up the awesomeness :). But wow, your trip, the paint collection, now this…you are a BUSY industrious girl!ReplyCancel

  • Brenda Johnson - June 16, 2016 - 1:20 PM

    Hi Laurel,
    I was SO excited reading your blog yesterday. Winning the consultation with you would be heavenly! We’re in the middle of selling our home in Virginia….and working with an architect for building our new home in Montana. Sudden death of our son in law last summer has put our family on an entirely different journey.
    We’re going from a 3000 + home to 1400 sq ft. A bit daunting but liberating as we super downsize. To have your guidance in color choices, furniture choice/placement would be invaluable.
    BUT, I can’t enter. I have an android phone…I downloaded the bhome app, no problem there….but can’t locate your name/star.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Regardless, thank you for your generosity in sharing all you do on your blog!

    • Laurel Bern - June 16, 2016 - 10:58 PM

      Hi Brenda,

      First of all, I am so sorry to hear about your son-in-law. I’ve been through it too with my brother who died suddenly at 38 when I was 31. He was a runner but shouldn’t have been running 80 miles a week.

      The star is underneath my main photo with the pink sofa. There’s a reference image in the post. I got there by clicking on the browse tab at the bottom and then clicking on recent. I’m the newbie and popped right up at the top. Hope that helps!ReplyCancel

      • Brenda - June 17, 2016 - 1:07 PM

        Thanks…..finally figured it out, with your help. What a great resource!ReplyCancel

  • Barbara Fox - June 16, 2016 - 7:02 AM

    Good morning Laurel
    I love your ideas and unfortunately came across this blog late….I just recently had my family room painted (tried to copy French Grey ) by Farrow and Ball…The family room had stained birch and it was just not the type of wood that looked rich at all….I love the new look, but I feel I need some fabric to break up all the grey/green,….but I have a bay window with shutters(also painted now) and I am not sure where I could hang curtains that would look good…..OF COURSE, I would pay you for any ideas….Would it be possible for me to send some photos and you could give me any ideas….I am semi-confident in decor, and I am NOT THINNED SKINNED….prefer honesty….
    Thanks, Barbara FoxReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - June 16, 2016 - 9:35 AM

      Hi Barbara,

      I very much appreciate your interest, but as I mentioned in the post, I am no longer doing any long-distance consultations.

      The give-away is a one-time thing.

      I was consults long-distance and found them to be exceedingly difficult for a myriad of reasons. One of the worst aspects were people jerking my chain several times a day. It became a real time-suck. I don’t think they meant badly, just didn’t follow through after I had already spent time emailing them.

      You could enter the contest and there’s a chance that you’ll win, but otherwise, I’m sorry that I can’t help you further.ReplyCancel

      • Barbara Fox - June 18, 2016 - 7:04 AM

        Believe me, I completely understand, and I will find out how to enter the contest…

  • Michelle - June 16, 2016 - 1:36 AM

    Hi Laurel, I downloaded the app, found your blog but can’t find the star. Please help. Thanks so very much.ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - June 16, 2016 - 9:29 AM

      Hi Michelle,

      The star is under my main profile page. There’s an example of that in the post with the star underneath the image with the pink sofa in it.ReplyCancel

  • Jill - June 16, 2016 - 12:48 AM

    I can’t get it to download on my ipad Air 2. Help please!ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - June 16, 2016 - 1:07 AM

      Hi Jill,

      I didn’t realize this but it is only viewable on an i-pad as an i-phone app, so if you download it on your i-phone if you have one, then you can access it on your ipad where it gives you the option to view as a phone app. I found it quite easily. I never use my i-pad because I am surgically attached to my macbook, but it was easy to do. Good luck! hope that helps.ReplyCancel

  • Linda - June 15, 2016 - 8:30 PM

    I can’t get it to download on my IPad either. It goes to another site about home security. I have had this App before, but it was deleted or something.ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - June 16, 2016 - 1:08 AM

      Hi Linda,

      If you go have an iphone you’ll need to download it there first and then access it via your phone app on your ipad. Hope that helps!ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - June 15, 2016 - 11:31 PM

      Oh gosh… I do sympathize as I have my own technical issues which recently, have driven me to tears it’s been so frustrating. ReplyCancel

  • Nancy - June 15, 2016 - 8:21 PM

    What a neat app, but I haven’t received the message. Guess I’ll try again later!ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - June 15, 2016 - 11:29 PM

      I think you have to click where it says messages, but I’m not positive. I tried testing it, but I can’t get a message from myself. :]ReplyCancel

  • Teri - June 15, 2016 - 6:03 PM

    I don’t have an iPhone or a Mac, just a regular old notebook with Windows. What do I do?ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - June 15, 2016 - 11:28 PM

      Hi Teri,

      It only works as an app at this time. So, you need a smart phone or tablet.ReplyCancel

  • Suzette - June 15, 2016 - 5:35 PM

    I can’t get it to load on my iPad (it comes up in the store as bhome – home and garden community, but when I click to download, it downloads something else instead). Oh well, I did sign up for the newsletter and I will try again another day to get the app on my iPad. 🙂ReplyCancel

    • Laurel Bern - June 16, 2016 - 1:12 AM

      Hi Suzette,

      I didn’t realize until just now that you can only access it on an ipad as an iphone app. So, hopefully you have the latter and once it’s downloaded on your phone, it’s very easy to access it on an ipad. I have one, which I NEVER use, but this was easy to do.ReplyCancel

  • Susan - June 15, 2016 - 4:37 PM

    Downloaded and entered! I would love to be the last of the long-distance consultations -all the way in France.ReplyCancel

  • Amy Dvornik - June 15, 2016 - 4:29 PM

    Lucky us people. My heart is racing! Just spent a ho hum day pouring over drawings of the old space and seeking help for a new kitchen layout. Once the host to a weekly taping of a Saturday cooking show … and a premier test kitchen for the WE Energies Holiday Cookie Book, the kitchen is a juxtaposition of much old … melamine cabinets, lazy susans and yes, linoleum floors… and some new. We are persevering with the promise a new layout will bring back the charm to our 1940’s Home … along with a big dash of Laurel’s signature sophistication. It all clicks! Big welcome to Laurel and much thanks for introducing me to this great new source! Dreaming of putting in loads of my own hard work to bring Laurel’s kitchen layout design to life!ReplyCancel

    Just downloaded the bhome app on my iPhone! Its is wonderful!
    I can’t get the app to show up in the App store on my ipad Air, maybe just a glitch today! Look forward to trying again later!
    Congratulations!ReplyCancel
