Kevin & Layla Go to Hollywood (via Shakopee, MN)

Pin It

Here are our favorite cottage designer, Layla, and her talented hubby, Kevin, of The Lettered Cottage, filming at Junk Bonanza 2010 in Shakopee, MN, this past weekend. Hoping to get picked up by a network, they are working with a producer to put together a show that involves traveling the country and helping people with design dilemmas. I was thrilled to be able to capture some of their filming adventures on camera!!

Their client was a fairly new blogger, Carla of Hammers and High Heels. Carla and her hubs, Alex, live in downtown Minneapolis, MN. Kevin & Layla were shopping Junk Bonanza to find great pieces to makeover Carla & Alex's guest bedroom.

There was lots of discussion going on about different items that caught their eye. Kevin was always at the ready to measure an item to see if it would fit in the room. If you are looking for specific pieces for a space, it is always recommended to have the room measurements with you!

In the photos above and below, the producer (director?) was giving some instruction for the next shot. 

I love the looks of concentration here!

Here they were talking to Cammie of Daffadowndilly's. She always has the best stuff! See some of the shots of her booth from this year's show over at Junkologie. In the photos above and below, they were talking about that army green trunk in front of them.

I hope the filming went like gangbusters, Kevin & Layla! I enjoyed meeting you, and I would absolutely love to see the two of you on TV! Your kind demeanor, never-ending creativity, and undeniable sense of style make you naturals for design stardom. The blogging, design, DIY, and cottage communities are chomping at the bit for a couple like you to give us what we love!

Stay tuned at The Lettered Cottage to see how Kevin & Layla transform Carla & Alex's guest bedroom!
