Schoolhouse Electric Giveaway!

Schoolhouse Electric Giveaway!

I’m going to let you in on a secret: I’m constantly wavering back and forth between staying in our condo or moving into a single-family home. But ever since we redecorated our bedroom, I’ve been leaning toward staying because I’m falling in love with our home again. Next on my list is the kitchen, which is fine but bland as anything, and I’ll be turning to the stylish accents of Schoolhouse Electric!

Funnily enough, I hadn’t known about Portland-based Schoolhouse Electric until I’d left the city. My friend Kirsten Neiman of Restored Style fame took over their PR awhile back, which got my attention because Kirsten has better taste than pretty much everyone I know.

Schoolhouse Electric Giveaway!

Since then, I’ve become a huge Schoolhouse Electric fan girl and I’m thrilled to be partnering with them for this 14 Days of Holiday Love giveaway! If you’ve got your eye on one of their fabulous pieces, you absolutely need to enter to win a $100 gift card. Here are five ways for you to enter:

1. Visit the 14 Days of LOVE giveaway Facebook page.
2. Follow @Schoolhouse on Instagram.
3. Follow @FrockFiles on instagram.
4. Share your favorite Schoolhouse Electric item on Instagram and be sure to mention the giveaway and @FrockFiles and @Schoolhouse.
5. Visit Schoolhouse Electric on Facebook.

And, since I couldn’t resist, I’ve created a roundup of the things I would love to see under my Christmas tree this year, for me or for James! Okay, so the chair would be pretty obvious all wrapped up. But a girl can dream, right?

Clockwise from top left: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

I’ll be announcing the winner on Sunday, December 7th at 10am EST on Instagram and contacting the winner directly. Good luck!

Bright Lights on Kirsten Nieman of Restored Style

Kirsten Nieman runs the impeccable decor blog Restored Style, where she collects her favorite things, documents her adventures in creating a home, and offers design services. When you visit Restored Style, you’ll see that Kirsten has a talent for mixing classic style with pieces that hint at the industrial, all while incorporating accessories with a sense of whimsy. The resulting spaces are warm and inviting — places I’d love to call my own. In fact, Kirsten is so good that she’s even welcomed the folks of Young House Love into her home on a recent visit to the City of Roses.

Kirsten and her husband restored a gorgeous bungalow in Portland, and they’re currently on the hunt for a new home in a different neighborhood. I’m literally at the edge of my seat, waiting to find out where they’ll land next!


What do you do for a living? I’m a PR/Marketing gal at a local Portland agency during the day, and a blogger at by night.

Places you’ve lived: I’ve lived in Portland, Ore. my whole life (except for the four years I spent in Eugene for college) and I plan on staying here forever. I absolutely adore this city!

The place you’d most like to visit: Europe. I really can’t believe I have yet to travel across the pond. Some day…soon!

Your favorite indulgence: Sitting down with a good book, a delicious latte, and silence.

The best advice you’ve ever received: I feel lucky that I’ve been around some amazing women over the years, and each of them have shared some really great advice with me. Here are a few of my favorites!

  • Be brief, but be brilliant.
  • Behind every successful woman is herself.
  • Do what makes you happy. If you are truly passionate about your career, good things will happen!
