Jenni Yolo - Vertical Headshot

Meet Jenni Yolo

@ISpyDIY & Makeover by Monday

 

Jenni Yolo has always crafted her own style. Growing up in Wisconsin, she would page through magazines, gathering ideas for clothes and decor she could make herself (at a fraction of the price!). After moving to New York City, Jenni started a career at InStyle magazine, working as a graphic designer and DIY columnist; which evolved into a website: ISpyDIY.com, a TV show on the Magnolia Network "Makeover by Monday", a wallpaper line and a store, Jenni Yolo Home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Jenni and her husband, Mr. Yolo, take on the ultimate in DIY projects: rehabbing 100+ year old homes. Jenni spends her time designing spaces, creating DIY decor, and hunting for tchotchkes at thrift stores and flea markets with her two daughters.
