My name is Jenna Pilant. I am a #stylecrazed, full-time creative living in sunny San Diego with my classically handsome husband and our four adorable dogs I was born and raised in Nebraska and for the first two-thirds(ish) parts of my life, I was all about the stage = dancing/singing and acting! So much so, I actually got degrees in Musical Theatre and Music Business from the University of Nebraska at Kearney. While obtaining that education, I was also the “on-air” television host for the local FOX affiliate, FOX 4 & 17. After graduation in 2009, I abruptly quit my TV gig and said goodbye to “The Good Life” moving to Californ-i-a on Memorial Day Weekend that very same year, which is still hands down one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
It gave me the exact fresh start I need to jump-start my own personal evolution, which in about three-years’ time made me realize that I was burnt out on the whole “acting” dream, so I decided to shift gears a little bit and give the entrepreneurial route a shot instead ;) I am now in my sixth year of running my upholstery business, writing my design+style blog and am about to launch my very own YouTube channel.
I have a knack for bright colors, LOVE collecting different funky eyeglasses and adore all things vintage. My design inspirations include Andy Warhol, Stacey Bendet, and vintage motifs throughout the 50s, 60s, and 70s. When not designing furniture, working on our house or blogging, I spend my time being a wife and a damn good dogmom. Oh, and I love oversized PJ’s. I do. I really, really do.
I recently did an Instagram takeover and a Giveaway for The San Diego Museum of Art.
