MOST RECENT

Oftentimes, I can be found painting in my bedroom, staring thoughtfully into space, while wearing a t-shirt that is essentially a dress. My recent bedroom makeover with @prattandlambertpaints gave me a chance to try out a hue I’ve been dying to have in my home for years (color is Pratt & Lambert’s “Aloe”). If you’re not sure what color to paint YOUR bedroom while YOU wear your t-shirt dress and contemplate the future, check out Pratt & Lambert’s 2018 Color Trends Guide (link-in-profile). Now if you’ll excuse me I’m gonna go belt this thing, take my pants all the way off, and see if I can find a bag that goes with this look. Okay bye.

A fun fact about me is that I’m not a breakfast person. I’ve been making smoothies lately but usually I just don’t eat anything until lunch because I’m not hungry in the morning. But HARK! Today my sister and her wife (AND BABY) are here so I have an excuse to waddle around my glamorous tiny kitchen making stuff. Ever-thankful to @semihandmade for completely transforming this into such an efficient, functional space. Also, I get a ton of questions about my triangle spice rack. It’s from @cb2 and I love it. I’m pretty into anything that’s a circle or a triangle, so it goes with the geometric vibes that reverberate throughout Châteaulando. Now go, my darlings, and put circles and triangles all over your houses before time runs out. BE FREE LIVE YOUR LIFE OKAY BYE.

My bedroom is going ICE COLD for winter, with a cool new color (@PrattandLambertPaint’s Aloe - 24-30). I love the new wall color in here, which is not too green, not too blue, just perfect. It's cool and refreshing while also somehow being warm and cozy. When I chose furnishings for the room I chose pieces that would go with a variety of color palettes, so the bed, dresser, and other foundational pieces all stayed the same while the accessories and lighting changed.

I painted a pink triangle on my non-functioning fireplace to honor @actupny. Today on Hommemaker I go over what to do with awkward empty fireplaces. I also chat about how ACT UP inspired me to delve into gay history and add a nod to it in my home. One of the tenets of my design practice is that your space should be a reflection of your history and identity. I love looking at this triangle every day and being reminded of an activist group that made it possible for me to live life with less fear of dying from AIDS-related illness. Check out today’s blog post at Hommemaker.com to learn more about ACT UP and the triangle in my fireplace. Photo by @zekeruelas #actup #chateaulando #hommemaker

YOU GUYS I MADE A GIANT TRIPTYCH FOR MY BEDROOM. With all the other stuff I’m up to it can be hard to prioritize making art, so I’ve been using every excuse to make more paintings. When I decided to paint my room “Aloe” by @prattandlambertpaints I thought adding in some new art would be extremely fun. AND GUESS WHAT IT WAS! Okay bye.

I recently finished a Mega Makeover in my bedroom with the help of @PrattandLambertPaints. I went with Pratt & Lambert's Aloe (24-30) from their 2018 Color Trends Diverge palette for the walls and Designer White (33-1) for the trim and ceiling. I'm obsessed with how it turned out. It went from pretty-in-pink to cool and refreshing in aqua. Check my blog for the full details (link in profile). Photo by @zekeruelas #chateaulando #bedroommakover #prattandlambert #sponsored

I had the most insane week ever in the best way possible. So many fun and exciting developments up here in Chateaulando. The advance copy of my book arrived and it’s 👌👌👌(buy it at link in profile). I had an extra special TOP SECRET meeting with Hollywood, and I finally got back to working out after a dumb and annoying injury kept me out of the gym for half of last year. And today is the most important day in history as two of my bestests are getting married in the most glamorous celebrity wedding of the season (can’t wait @jefferyself ❤️ @augustusprew!). I have been waiting for this wedding for literally a year, I love these guys so much. Also I got a haircut from @adamzelasko at @justinhardinghair and getting a haircut always makes me feel five thousand times more gorgeous and wealthy. Okay that’s it. Please enjoy this photo of my bedroom. And get ready for a MEGA bedroom transformation that I’m gonna share on Hommemaker this week. Photo by my middle (favorite) son @zekeruelas HAPPY SATURDAY BRO. #chateaulando

This year is already so much better than last year. Remember when I remodeled my rented apartment’s kitchen and then got swindled out of thousands of dollars by my sinister landlord? ME NEITHER. At the beginning of 2017 I was living in a depressing apartment with no kitchen (it had been ripped out before my arrival), eating take out and being lonely and depressed ALL THE TIME. Post break up life sucks. But that was then and this is now. I am so thankful that garbage year is over. In the span of a terribly dark year I wrote a book (which you can buy at link-in-prof, sorry I’m not gonna stop pimping this until I’m on the NYT bestseller list), furnished my apartment from scratch, and gave birth to a beautiful bouncing baby boy. His name is @ryan.pears, he’s my same age, and he’s not technically my real son but for branding purposes I’m calling him that (dad oriented sponsors feel free to reach out to me about #sponcon for dads). Anyway, my point is that I complained a lot about how garbage last year was so this is a post to be like YOU GUYS YAY 2018 IS GREAT AND I NO LONGER WANT TO JUMP INTO A WELL. So if you’re having the kind of year I had last year where you’re like “WHAT IS LIFE TBH,” keep your chin up and think about the fact that someday soon you might adopt one of your adult male friends as your son, your kitchen remodel will be done, and your heart will eventually start to heal. That’s it bye. #chateaulando #hommealone #drama

I don’t have a functioning fireplace, but I play one on TV. It’s only 40% depressing, I promise. #victim #hohoholando #hommemakerholiday #chateaulando {sources tagged, photo by Santa Claus himself, @zekeruelas}

Back at home in LA, working from my dining table, with this creep staring at me. ALSO I GOT A NEW PHONE AND I DON’T KNOW HOW TO USE IT AND I FEEL FOUR HUNDRED YEARS OLD WHY DOES EVERYTHING HAVE TO FUNCTION LIKE SNAPCHAT NOW I HATE CHANGE. #victim #chateaulando #hohoholando #hommemakerholiday photo @zekeruelas

This year’s holiday décor is a throwback to the type of traditional, Martha-inspired 1990s holiday decorating I was raised with, adding a contemporary Châteaulando twist. I’ve been going pretty mod the past few years so I’m loving how cozy and simple the look is. LET THIS BE A LESSON TO ALL OF US TO RESPECT OUR ELDERS AND THEIR FUN DECORATING TRADITIONS. Oh and the triangle paintings I made have already become best friends with all those @worldmarket bottle brush trees (check my blog for sources). Okay bye.

The stockings I sourced from @worldmarket for my Châteaulando Christmas are so ridiculous and amazing they almost make up for the fact that I can’t actually start a fire in that fireplace. To compensate for the lack of crackling fire, I added a lantern with candles in its place. See more sweets ‘n’ treats on my blog by clicking on the link-in-profile.

I snagged my bird tree topper at @svdpla a few years ago when I had to decorate a gigantic tree on a budget (it still cost thousands tbh). It’s nothing fancy, but you know what, neither am I. DEAL WITH IT. #victim #hohoholando #hommemakerholiday #chateaulando photo @zekeruelas

ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MY CHRISTMAS TREE, EVELYN. She’s gotten me through some dark times over the past few weeks (literally so dark because it’s winter) and now she’s here to be friends with you. Most of the presents are fake, just empty boxes. There is one real gift, however, which came from @zekeruelas who shot all my holiday content this year (including this pic). While this hasn’t been my favorite year, it’s been filled with luck and opportunity. Working with Zeke to create my upcoming book “Get It Together” was one such strike of luck. If you find good collaborators, cling to them like a thirsty skeleton in the Mojave clings to his last glass of cool, refreshing water. This year’s holiday decor scheme is a bit of a blast from the past, very traditional with a few modern flourishes and filled with fun finds from @worldmarket who provided much of the décor.

A few weeks ago I bought a bunch of food props for this harvesty photoshoot. I won’t be doing any actual cooking for Thanksgiving this year as I won’t be meeting up with my family due to a series of obnoxious delays on the orMOMdo/orlanDAD kitchen (it won’t be done until February now). This year I’ll be Thanking with friends. Because my friends are actual lunatics (actors), we’re doing a themed Thanksgiving feast. The theme is “Teachers’ Lounge Thanksgiving.” As a teacher’s kid who was friends with mostly teachers’ kids, this theme is near and dear to my heart. I’ll be wearing a goatee and murder glasses while talking about how my AP students are so much better than my regular ones. However you’re celebrating, I hope you have a good one. I also hope you’re not reading this in gridlock traffic or at an airport where a baby is screaming directly into your human face. ALSO IT’S GOING TO BE 100 DEGREES IN LA ON THANKSGIVING AND @kellyoxford AND I ARE PISSED ABOUT IT. Okay bye. #chateaulando #thanksgiving #complainsgiving

orMOMdo was all “I NEED A GIANT TURKEY PLATTER” so I bought her this one. Now I have to figure out how to ship it to Northern California. Also that pumpkin casserole baker is so cute I kinda wanna chop off my head and replace it with that. Also, I have a cold but I don’t seem sick so no one is paying attention to me. Complaining is fun! Please submit your #complainsgiving whining in the comments. Okay bye. #complainsgiving #chateaulando #hommealone

My family is a mess of new babies, under-construction kitchens, and obligatory visits to in-laws this year, so Thanksgiving with the Sorias is basically cancelled. But that didn’t stop me from hosting an imaginary Thanksgiving over the weekend and inviting all my imaginary friends. Check the link-in-profile to see all the drama that went down, including my picks for cooking and serving ware from @worldmarket. I’m most proud of this fun house shaped terrarium, but there’s lots of goodies to be thankful for. Plenty of tantalizing tips for your Thanksgiving celebration. Or, if you prefer, for your Complainsgiving fête. #complainsgiving #chateaulando #spon

Spent all yesterday inside styling a fall photo shoot at Chateaulando and finally found a place for my original paintings from @heysosi. People ask me all the time how I hang stuff on tile and the answer is simple: lightweight frames and foam tape. Use a generous amount of foam tape and your art will stay put (as long as you don’t use frames that weigh too much). It’s that easy! Also, I figured out my covfefe situation and am using a pour over from @schoolhouse now. It’s slightly more annoying than using an electric coffee maker but the result is a richer more full bodied flavor. IS THIS AN AD FOR COFFEE? Seriously not sure what I’m selling here. I guess the tip is drink coffee until you start freaking out then stick things on your wall using foam tape. That’s what I’m doing. Okay bye. #chateaulando #hommealone #tipsntricks 🙋🏼‍♂️sources tagged.
