HGTV Obsessed Episode 36: Phoebe Robinson
Comedian Phoebe Robinson joins Marianne to talk about her interior style journey and millennial homeownership. Then, Patti Wagner, host of HGTV's new IGTV show, Rentfluencer, shares tips on how to make impactful changes to a rental home.
Phoebe Robinson is a comedian, New York Times best-selling author, co-star of the hugely popular podcast 2 Dope Queens, and much to our delight, she is obsessed with all-things HGTV. Phoebe defines her personal style as modern with a lot of visual interest. She shares with Marianne the celebrity-inspired aesthetic she aspires to and her go-to places to shop for furniture. Phoebe also talks about how she has made the many apartments she has occupied feel like home, even when she was renting. “The thing for me that helped me make it feel like it was my own space is that I'm very big into rugs. It feels good on your feet and it's a way to sort of like, break up the space in a way visually where it feels homey, and then bookcases,” says Phoebe.
Phoebe also talks about her new book and tells the story that led to its title — Please Don’t Sit on My Bed in Your Outside Clothes. Phoebe explains how when she was a kid, her parents were neat-freaks so when she came home from school, she had to take off her outside clothes and put them in the wash, and wear her inside clothes. Phoebe still maintains that rule in her life but admits even worse than outside clothes on the bed, is a dirty suitcase.
In her brand-new collection of essays, Phoebe shares stories that will make you laugh, but also plenty that will hit you in the heart, inspire a little bit of rage, and maybe a lot of action.
Patti Wagner, the host of HGTV’s new IGTV show, Rentfluencer, shares her top tips for updating a rental without losing your security deposit and how to approach your landlord if you want to make changes to your space. Some of Patti’s favorite renter-friendly ideas for making impactful changes to a rental are peel-and-stick wallpaper, oversized rugs, large plants, window treatments and a gallery wall that is hung up with removable picture-hanging strips.
