Designer Tech | Eero WiFi System

Talking about the world's best wifi system, the Eero. Designer looks and function. That's my kind of tech! copycatchic luxe living for less #EEROATHOME

We’ve had a long time struggle with our wireless connection over here. Our house isn’t huge, but there’s just something about the placement of our modem and router that makes it give us spotty coverage everywhere else. Okay, okay…our set up is in our basement (not our choice!). It was there when we moved in and so we just kept it there to keep things easy. Well, it’s not hard to imagine, but we get awful coverage on the 2nd floor. Especially in the master bedroom. This is such a damper on my nighttime youtube binging, hello! My husband even tried moving the whole set up out of the basement and still no dice. We’re guessing the old school iron tub in the upstairs is serving as a damper? Who knows…all I know is that watching the little buffer wheel go round-and-round was driving me nutty. About six months ago it got so bad that we replaced our router and modem and pretty much our whole set-up hoping for better service. Nope. Oh yeah and we tried switching services too. Yeah…double nope.

Design Dilemma | Sarah Eisler Great Room

copycatchic interior design dilemma a modern farmhouse living room and dining room for around $3000 luxe living for less budget home decor and design

Last month I started this new blog/YouTube series with Coby O’Sullivan’s sitting room, and this month I took on Sarah Eisler‘s great room! I’ve followed Sarah on Instagram for awhile now, being a equestrian lover and her being in the horse world. So when I saw her design dilemma submission come through, I knew I wanted to help a fellow horse-lover out 🙂 Sarah moved into her new home not too long ago and needed some help with her combined living and dining room. AND she needed it all on a pretty tight budget…for around $3,000. So I put together a design for her that covers the main pieces that she’ll need to outfit the space and she can fill it all in with accessories as needed. Take a look and let me know  what you think!

I have to admit it was hard furnishing what was basically a dining room AND a living room for $3,000. So I decided to show you what $5,300 will get you 😉 Links to the products are above!

Here is Sarah’s before picture of the room. This is the sale listing photo, so not her furniture. She’s also painted it Sherwin Williams Tree Swallow and Requisite Grey.

And the inspiration images that Sarah gave me were all client work that I did in the past! You can check them out here: Naomi’s living room, Julie’s dining room, Dani’s living/dining room and Anne’s dining room.

I’m all over ways of making life easier (and better!). I went through a crazy plant buying spree a couple of months ago and it was amazing. BUT can I just tell you how much upkeep it all is? Watering, dusting, feeding, re-potting. Not to mention the infestation of gnats I got from a palm I bought. Yikes. So lately, I’ve been staring longingly at faux plants and greenery. Faux greens are such a controversial subject in the home design world. What do you guys think? Are you for? Or against? Personally? I like a good mix of both. In the past I’ve been solidly against fake plants, but there’s a new crop of great faux greens on the market and it makes ALL the difference. I found a few favorites over at World Market, so I thought it would be the perfect time to work in a Home Trends post for you all!
