She's a SOMI for me, in general as well.  There are a few things that are overdone, all mentioned above, but she and her husband put in a ton of work into that house and quick!  

 

I do appreciate her honesty on price and admitting when things go wrong, though I sometimes find it frustrating that she does a patch job on things in an effort to get things done.  Then I also think about if I was in that position, after hours of work, and I'd have a hard time not doing the same thing.  

 

I had to side-eye the bench seats next to the cooktop as well – first of all, I would never want to sit there for fear of my hair catching on fire.  Plus, she stapled the foam and fabric onto the plywood, instead of making a separate cushion with a removable cover (which, admittedly, would have been harder and taken more time).  I don't even want to know what that's going to look like after a few dinner parties….uh

I've only been reading her blog for a few months but I like that she is consistent in getting things done. I just recommended it to my sister, who has very similar tastes to Jenna's. We have totally different tastes but I still respect that her style looks nice when all is said and done. 

I was also unsure of that seating area right next to the stove top but I guess she could maybe scotch guard it or something? I've done that with white furniture before and it definitely helps. Overall I really enjoy her no nonsense writing style and the fact that she decorates for herself AND her husband. That media room they did was really cool and I'm not usually into stuff like that. clap

someone mentioned how much she loves the planked wall but I was reminded of a comment she made on the blog after buying the house – mostly she hates textured walls so found an easy way to cover them up.

as someone with annoying textured walls I get the motivation to hide them!

 

Overall she's a SOMI because she actually does DIY projects, is honest about failures without whining and complaining and spends money instead of getting comped on everything.

I'd been side-eyeing her a few of the choices in her master bedroom, but when she did the full-reveal today she pretty much won me over. It's still not my style, but damn it looks so amazing and cozy.

Agreed! I didn't like some of the elements she posted about but when she posted everything together I thought it looked awesome and inviting. Probably one of the warmest, comfiest bedrooms I've seen out of the blogs I follow. Killer view out of their window, too which I'm jealous about.

I started reading this blog while she was at her previous house, and I really like her design for the most part.  She does go a bit overboard with the planks and painting everything and it makes some of her spaces feel cold to me.  I am very envious of her view – gorgeous!

I did give her latest project the side-eye though – building a wooden cover for the subwoofer.  Wouldn't this affect the sound quality?  chair This reminds me a bit of when Sherry-Beth painted the Little Tykes basketball hoop toy…

I thought it was going to be a pregnancy announcement…. I am certainly shocked!

I was doing some digging online last night with the tease to the announcement, and saw Brad updated his LinkedIn back to Jacksonville, and she hasn't had her wedding ring on in photos for a while, so I was wondering if this was where it was headed.
The separation is a surprise, but the trip to Asia is. Wonder if she'll shutter the shop for the time being or if someone in her family is going to keep up with incoming orders and just not do new design.

That should say "The separation is not a surprise, but the trip to Asia is."

Wow, they buy a new house and do all that work to it and then this happens.

I'm truly interested to see how her trip goes.

I thought it was going to be an announcement about an adoption when I saw that image of the airplane.

So sorry, Jenna Sue.

I really haven't followed her at all. I'm assuming she has a lot of money saved up to be able to do this? 

Not that this means anything, but I was clicking on her current house tour and noticed that she has zero personal pictures in any of the rooms. Maybe she did it just for the pictures, but I found it kind of odd this morning.
