Would you let your close friend surprise style a room in your home? We partnered with local social media influencer Laura Arbo and photographer Abby Tohline, and they did just that with pieces from City Home! 

Laura and Abby both recently moved into new places here in Portland, Oregon, and embarked on their own version of Trading Spaces with us ... SO FUN! The two ladies have been friends for years and had each other's styles down.
