I admit we are a bit obsessed with watching all the home renovation shows in our home. So when I was asked if I would like to interview Jenni Pulos of Bravo’s Flipping Out, I was all, “Yes, please. Jenni, help me with my home re-do!” Plus, Jenni is just so dang funny – I thought it would be a hoot to chat with her.
The interview did not disappoint! While Jenni is working on the #WhatTheFlush campaign and shared with us some great information on the new stealth toilet and how to save water, that is so important in drought-hit California, she also gave me some great ideas for my own home renovations.

Home Renovations with Jenni Pulos Interview
I love Jenni’s line about taking on home renovations! She explains that it’s like dating – everything seems grand until about the fourth date when you suddenly realize that “Oh, they have some issues. they have a past.” Tell me about it! We are currently getting the exterior of our home painted. Lo and behold, we discovered a whole bunch of dry rot up on the chimney and on that side of the home. The power washing really did a number on the home’s siding, and now a big portion needs to be replaced. Uggh! the budget just took an extra hit! But as we all know, if we don’t deal with dry rot – it will only get worse. So the new siding has been ordered.
Other tips Jenni shared with me are also easy to incorporate into a home’s decor. She talked about using mixed metals, refreshing a space with color (I love painting walls), that grays are still in as well as cool blues (good for may latest color pick), and about adding life back into your home. So many doable ideas!
It all comes down to creating a space that you love – a space that you want to come home to and relax.
I love Jenni’s sense of humor and attitude towards life. Like me, she survived a humiliating divorce and found love again. I am enjoying her bits of advice on life in her very fun and quick read, Grin and Bear It: How to Be Happy No Matter What Reality Throws Your Way.
To learn more about the Stealth Toilet and how it can help you save 40,000 gallons of water a year head over to What the Flush.
Thank you, Niagara, for providing me with this interview. I really enjoyed chatting with Jenni!
Awesome blog!!Thanks for sharing great information about home renovation.
I love the idea of the stealth toilet and how much it will save water. I’m always up for more eco friendly options!
I’m glad you had this opportunity! Jenni seems like a really humorous woman, which is great for potentially stressful situations like home renovations.
What an awesome feature! Jenni Pulos is fantastic! I love the video. Thank you so much for the awesome blog feature. I can always learn from the interior style experts when it comes to home renovations!
Since we live in an apartment right now I am not renovating for now. Looking forward to a home in the future to do all the fun things like this.
What a great interview, I like Jenni a lot. I’m trying to slowly do some home improvements.
Seriously! There are always new things uncovered in the middle of a home renovation! It always takes longer than planned too!
Awesome opportunity! I really need to give my own home a face-lift. I started with the kitchen and we are almost done! Wish we could snap our fingers and have the entire house done.
Oh wouldn’t that be nice! I am hoping to tackle our kitchen next. Still finishing up the office. It all takes so much time 🙂
I always loved Jenni on Flipping Out. She has wonderful style and feet on the ground. How fun that you got to interview her.
It was really fun! Jenni was so easy to chat with – funny and down-to-earth.
What a fun interview! I loved getting to watch this interview, it’s always so nice to get to know people more!
Isn’t that the truth! One of the aspects that I love most about these interviews is that ability to “meet” all sorts of interesting people.
We love Jenni. Your home looks amazing. We love the red accents in the room.
Thanks! The room pictured is actually my parent’s home. I was visiting them last week 🙂 I love my mom’s sense of style and decorating. So pretty and relaxing. Also called home.
We are looking to get our first home at the end of the year and I am researching ways to save us the most money and to be as green as possible. This toilet is certainly something I will be looking into!
This sounds perfect! I know here in California, we are always looking for ways to save water.
I absolutely love Jenni! I have watched every season of Flipping Out! I get so excited to see her in other ads and commercials! Great interview!
I loved chatting with her! She is funny and down-to-earth – a perfect combination.
What a fantastic interview!!!! I just love these kinds of shows. So fun to watch & get ideas for your own home!
Thank you! I am always getting new ideas from the home improvement shows. Flipping Out is a great one for that.
She seems so fun to hang out with. I love that grey are still in. I need to repaint some of my walls.
I really enjoyed chatting with Jenni! I just repainted my office – but I also need to repaint some bedrooms. Maybe this summer.
Love this, Stacey! Great interview! I LOVE her too!
Thank you so much, Marisa!
I’m married to a contractor and it’s so exciting to see his ideas and what shows up at the house. A few weeks ago it was new doors. Toilets are a big thing here since he is a plumber….I’m amazed at what a difference they make.
How fun! It sounds like your home is always evolving!
How fun! It was delightful to meet Jenni. The photo of the room was so good. Cozy and relaxing.
Thanks! Yes, I love this room – it is my parent’s living room. I always find it to be so pretty and relaxing.
I will have to go and check this out. I love watching home shows and the inspiration they give me. I have not been doing much renovation lately, perhaps it is time to get inspired.
The downside to watching the shows is that you are constantly wanting to do something!
Home renovations are such a commitment. I like to do little jobs here and there to transform my room(s) into places I love. Never watched her before, but based on your review I’m totally checking it out!

It is a great show. Right now my house is a mess as I have emptied out my office and have not put it all the way back together yet! It all takes time.
