But managed to catch up with Peyton ahead of her presentation. Check out our interview below!
Q: What was the last picture you took with your phone?
: "A picture of our daughter looking out the back door."
Q: If you had to move to another country, which would you pick and why?
: "Australia. When the weather is nice everyone takes off work and goes to the beach."
Q: What’s one thing we wouldn’t guess about you?
: "I’ve been skydiving twice."
Q: What’s a common mistake homeowners make when they take on a home improvement project themselves?
: "Everyone gets excited about demo and destroying the old to bring in the new. Make sure you do your research and speak to professionals before taking a sledgehammer to a wall. It could be load bearing and/or have plumbing and electric running through."
Q: Where do you go online to find inspiration?
: "Pinterest. It’s the best spot to search and to save what you like in one spot."
Q: What’s your best organization hack?
: "Recently I was having trouble keeping my jewelry organized and I was constantly untangling necklaces. There was a blank wall in my closet so I used the vertical space and hung S-hooks on a curtain rod to keep everything organized and in sight. This makes choosing my accessories much easier!"
Q: What are your best small space living hacks?
: "Choose furniture that can double as storage. An ottoman that has a lid to keep blankets inside, or a coffee table that pulls up into a desk for working at home. There are so many options available to give you what you need without crowding your space."
Q: What’s a must have at any party you’re throwing?
: "Toothpicks. I’m a bit of a germophobe! I like to serve appetizers and most of the time it’s small bites so I provide toothpicks for people to grab what they want without having to put their fingers in the bowl of olives or all over the cheese platter."
Q: Would you rather upgrade your closet, bathroom or kitchen?
: "Kitchen for sure. We spend majority of our time in the kitchen and we love to cook!"
Q: The three things I can’t live without are_______.
: "My phone/camera, Yeti with coffee, Aquafor."
