If you’re here for the DIY/Design, feel free to skip this post! But if you’ve wanted to “do what we do” or even thought about it for a minute, then this post is for you.
For 12 years I’ve been writing on this blog, opening up our doors to all of you readers, and we’ve been able to build a platform and expand Chris Loves Julia to something we could have never imagined. We have all of YOU to thank for that and we really wanted to educate others on how they can do the same, which is why we launched our Good Influence(r) course in 2019–to empower influencers from all over the world to find their niche, grow their following, and work with their dream brands. Enrollment opens every quarter, and we just had to let you know that our final enrollment for the year 2021 is now open and we don’t want you to miss it.
We’re constantly adding Q&A sessions with Chris and I, and lessons specific to finding your niche, engaging with your audience, getting verified, and so much more. In an effort to keep the discussion ongoing beyond just the course we started our Mastermind group on Facebook. The Mastermind Community is for those ready to turn their hobby into a career, or those who have been at it for a while and might find themselves at a standstill with their growth, their engagement, their sponsorships. This allows for not only Chris and I, but a community of Influencers to ask questions and get feedback and encouragement. We’re also there to celebrate all of your success and wins (and there’s already going to be plenty). Good Influence(r) was born out of our desire to create and cultivate a group of influencers who were interested in best practices for their audiences and partners. The past 3 years have shown us exactly the potential and magnitude of brands built with passion behind them. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by, but the fourth quarter is almost here again–the quarter where we make nearly half of our yearly income. You read that right, and you can do the same thing. In alignment with this we have opened enrollment with time to get your prices raised, your media kit tightened, and line up your dream brands. Good Influence(r) enrollment is now open through the 31st of August. As a student you’ll have access to:
“The direct coaching from Chris and Julia enabled us to negotiate higher partnership fees and be more self-assured in our ability to provide value to brands. Having the expert advice through the Good Influence(r) program has been essential to our growth and we cannot recommend this community and the wisdom shared in it enough!”
“Being able to take advantage of the Good Influence(r) program has been one of the highlights of my 2020 content creator/Influencer achievements! Not only was I able to gain valuable insight and lessons from completing the course, but also getting hands-on support from Chris and Julia has been phenomenal. One of several instances includes a direct review of my media kit by Chris, where he offered constructive criticism, direct edits, suggestions for pricing and advice on hiring a graphic designer or platforms to use for improvements to my kit if I chose to go the “DIY” route. Since improving my media kit based on Chris’ direct review I have been able to successfully pitch to dream brands and received more paid partnership opportunities. So grateful to be part of Good Influence(r)™!”
“I love making content and curating a beautiful feed but I didn’t know how to turn it into a business. I decided to invest in myself by taking the Good Influence(r) course. There, I learned the value of my work. Having no experience in the corporate world, this course taught me how to write a solid pitch and gave me the confidence to approach dream brands that I have since been able to secure partnerships with.”
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Last week, Chris and I had the incredible opportunity to travel to London for work. We were invited by Williams Sonoma and William Morris and Co to preview their newest collaboration and the inspiration behind it. It was my first time in London and although it was a quick trip, they brought us all over […]
