Our New Set by Laurel & Wolf

You may have noticed on the TV pilot of The Valley Girl Show with Jesse Draper that the Valley Girl has changed her look -- in more ways than one!  To celebrate her big move from the computer screen to the TV screen, the Valley Girl decided that a fresh new look for her set was in order, so Jesse called upon her friends at Laurel & Wolf, an online home design company (for which she is an investor!) to do what they do best.  

At Laurel & Wolf, multiple designers competed to fulfil our vision, and then we picked the winning design within our budget, including a style board, a furniture plan, shopping list, along with instructions for the designer.   Their 3-step process was so efficient!  

Here's the skinny on how it works: 1. Tell them about your space.  Take the style quiz and create a room profile.  They ask you a few questions to get a feel for your space and your needs, and then you chose a package and lauch the contest between the Laurel & Wolf designers, all based in the U.S., competing to create your dream space.  2. You'll then recieve multiple designs from their network of professional designers.  You can give the designers feedback during the contest so that they can improve their designs.  3. Finally, choose the winning design!  L&W guarantees (100% money-back!) that you'll walk away with a design you'll love!

We couldn’t be happier with the Valley Girl’s new set!  Since L&W works with both residential and commercial spaces (including hospitality, retail, space planning, home staging, project management, and event design!) which space of yours will you use them for?

Here's a pic of our original set from our web show days! We certainly were thinking pink!

This is one of the design boards we were sent from the Laurel & Wolf design team.  While we didn't end up going with it, we absolutely adore its feminie feel!

Below is a picture of the winning design board that our team picked!  While we will always love pink, we love how this design mixes it up with a touch of teal!

TV Premiere Party

Sunday night was a great night for "The Valley Girl Show with Jesse Draper", the Valley Girl herself, and all involved with the production of the show!!

As many of you may know, after five fab years since Jesse launched her show online, she made the giant leap to TV, and we at VG are so, so proud of her!! The show premiered this past Sunday, Aug 3, and many startups, techies, sponsors, and family and friends were in attendance to celebrate the occasion and to watch the episode on the big screen—literally!! A very large projection screen was set up in a swanky viewing room with rows of cushions set up for guests to laugh along and learn about all the new technologies premiered on the show!  Here's to many more interviews and high fives to come!  #cheers 

Some of Jesse's best girl friends came to support her! 

The night wouldn't have been possible without the support from our awesome producers!

Gearing Up to Film The New TV Show

Five years later after launching in her garage to filming hundreds of published interviews and web shows, the Valley Girl's dream is finally coming true, because "The Valley Girl Show" is moving to TV!  

We've been having so much fun writing scripts, gathering props, configuring sets, picking outfits, and drinking plenty of iced mochas!  We're so excited to interview a whole new batch of entrepreneurs, developers, and innovators.  We wanted to share some fun behind-the-scenes pics of the Valley Girl and her team as we get ready for our first day of filming in the big leagues!
