Jaclyn Johnson’s Los Angeles Home Tour

Jaclyn Johnson is one cool girl—you know, the kind of girl who hustles, doesn’t take no for an answer, and isn’t afraid to be a little bossy in order to accomplish her goals. We chatted with Jaclyn about founding her two businesses, (No Subject), a creatively-driven digital marketing and events agency and Creative + Cultivate (a women’s conference), and also about the inspiration behind her blog, Some Notes on Napkins. It quickly became clear that she is a force to be reckoned with and we’re not the only ones who think so: Jaclyn was named Forbes Magazine 30 Under 30 this year. She’s shaking up industry standards and in the best way possible.

Jaclyn’s home reflects her easy vibe; it’s bohemian chic meets minimal modern California flair—glamorous yet authentic, unrestrained yet utterly calm and cool. She loves texture, layers, different fabrics and colors all mixed together and like with everything else so quintessentially Jaclyn, she pulls it off effortlessly. But still no stranger to a good budget find, she’ll tell you where the best deals can be had—and how to throw a fabulous at-home dinner party on a dime.

Jaclyn reminds us to not over think it, get a little scrappy if necessary, and chase down those dreams. We’re thrilled to share her advice on how her blog helped advance her career, her ever-evolving style, and what she splurged on in her gorgeous home. Read on and be inspired!

Full name: Jaclyn Johnson
Age: 29
Current title/company: Founder at (No Subject), Creator of Create + Cultivate, and partner in the soon-to-be-launched On Holiday
Educational background: Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Public Policy at New York University (magna cum laude)

Your first job out of college was working for Attention USA, where you led some of the first online word of mouth marketing campaigns for clients like BlueFly and Estee Lauder. How did you land this job?
It was truly happenstance. I found the job on Craigslist and it literally said “seeking female account executive who likes fashion and the internet”—yes! I applied and got it!

Can you please give a brief synopsis of your career before launching (NO SUBJECT)?
I actually started out in editorial interning at CondeNast Traveler and SELF magazine. Following, a professor of mine sent me an interesting opportunity at Time Inc Interactive—essentially, a 6 month think tank—tasked with working on bridging the divide between print publications and the online world. After that I transitioned into marketing and PR with my first job at Attention USA. After a year there I was poached by another agency (iCrossing) and was tasked with building out their social media service lines. From there I went in-house at IAC working on their shopping start up Pronto.com, and later Citysearch, which brought me to LA.

What was your vision when you started (NO SUBJECT)? 
I had initially been looking into agencies in LA and (at the time) I felt like none of the agencies were catering to the fashion, beauty and lifestyle community—most were interested in entertainment. I saw a gaping hole in the market and wanted to take advantage. When I first started, I wanted to create something new and different—an agency that focused on creating interesting partnerships and campaigns through collaboration and shared ideas, not only providing services but building companies and events that brands wanted to be a part of.

How did you start (NO SUBJECT)? Give us the details!
I moved to LA for a position at Citysearch and was laid off three months later after the company decided to focus on a b2b strategy versus b2c. I was scrambling in a new city with little to no business relationships at the time. I sent an email to my contacts about freelancing and gathered a few clients, eventually I started making enough money to get an office, then enough money to hire my first employee, so on and so forth. Luckily, as a service business upfront costs are minimal—I got scrappy and built the website myself, furnished the office with ikea, etc. I started the company out of a rad warehouse space in DTLA where I held different events connecting the fashion, tech, and influencer communities. The events started garnering attention and clients started coming to us!

You work with some major companies, such as Nasty Gal, Urban Decay, Marimekko, and Levi’s. How did your blog (Some Notes on Napkins) assist in making contacts in lifestyle and fashion industries?
It was absolutely helpful. As I launched my blog in 2007 and began my career, they ran parallel, creating this advantageous relationship—I would work with brands on a campaign for my blog and then they would ask about (No Subject) and vice versa as clients would ask for blog posts. Actually, I think my major differentiator (in running an influencer agency) is that I am a blogger (an OG one in fact). I understand the community thoroughly, how it’s evolved, what works and what doesn’t, and I have the relationships that can make things happen for brands.

In addition to (NO SUBJECT), you also run Create + Cultivate, an inspirational conference for female entrepreneurs and business leaders. What led you to start Create + Cultivate?
I had attended multiple conferences and while I enjoyed them, I always felt that the ambience was lackluster and the content was stagnant, and the audience was kept at a distance. I wanted to create a conference for women that was beautiful and had tons of characters. One where women could get their hands a little dirty making stuff, drink cocktails, and most importantly leave entertained, informed, and inspired. Create + Cultivate spans from the CEOs of Wildfang discussing how they quit their creative director jobs and raised $2 million dollars, to Mr. Kate teaching a DIY on how to make an inspiration board for your dream job. It’s fun and engaging and doesn’t take itself too seriously. The conference has grown exponentially and organically and has taken on a life of its own—it’s incredible!

Last year, I took a step back and decided I wanted to focus on building the conference by bringing it to different cities across the U.S. Our kick-off is in March in LA and we have Emily Weiss, founder of Into the Gloss and Glossier, as the keynote and I could not be more excited for her to tell her story about launching Glossier, shaking up the beauty industry, and raising $10 million dollars!

Let’s talk about your home! What were your must haves, in terms of furniture and accessories?
When I first moved into the space I knew I wanted to splurge on two items: a large farm style outdoor table and a brand new bed frame.

Are any of the items in your home DIY or thrift store finds? Did you have a budget?
Yes, tons! I am the knick knack queen and I love random tchotchkes I find at flea markets. I am actually a partner in a company called Frankie + Albert—we send curated monthly boxes filled with vintage finds. Our buyers are incredible and find amazing items (sometimes it’s hard not to take them home!). My favorite vintage items I have are my brass candlestick holders, punch bowls, wooden game pieces (from my grandma), and milk glass vases. My budget was tight so while I splurged on a few things, I ended up finding some great deals on other items by scavenging flea markets and Goodwill!

Your boho-inspired home is chock-full of fun textiles and cool art prints. What are your go-to sources for bohemian, contemporary furnishings?
I am a texture freak—I love layers of different fabrics and colors. A few of my favorite spots include TRNK, Fab, One Kings Lane, Target, Urban Outfitters (they have killer rugs!), Jonathan Adle, Blu Dot, Casa Victoria (a great vintage shop in Silver Lake), Sunbeam Vintage (a great shop in Highland Park) and etsy/ebay for vintage paintings.

You are known for hosting some fabulous parties in your home. Do you have any advice for someone looking to host a great party on a small budget?
I love throwing dinner parties and cocktail hours. A few tips for an event on a budget:

Florals—make all the difference! Mason jars are an inexpensive way to display florals; if there is a Trader Joe’s nearby stop by early in the morning to get the best (and cheapest) floral selection!
Stringed Lights—a great and inexpensive way to create ambience in your space whether outdoor or indoor.
Punch—streamline your alcohol selection by creating a pre-made option like a punch.
Pot luck—create the main dish but invite your friends to bring over the sides. This is a great way to gather everyone and have a fabulous dinner party on the cheap!

What do you love most about living in Los Angeles?
The access to so many different environments. You can drive 30 minutes and be at the beach, 10 minutes and be in the mountains, 5 hours and be in wine country. You can just get in your car and go! As a former New Yorker, I cherish my morning hikes and west side weekends.

What advice would you give to your 23-year-old self?
I think the best advice I could give myself is: everything happens for a reason. There were trials and tribulations and ‘this is the end of the world’ moments that plagued my mid-twenties (personally and professionally). I took everything to heart. Now approaching my thirties, I can see the path clearly. Things happen for a reason and lead you to where you need to be, with the people you need to be surrounded by. Oh and also: get everything in writing!

Jaclyn Johnson is The Everygirl…

Guilty pleasure?
Sweats. If I can spend a day in sweats with no make up, it’s a good day.

Best moment of your career so far? 
Actually it just happened—I was named 30 under 30 by Forbes Magazine this year.

If you could meet any woman for lunch, who would it be and what would you order?  
Beyonce, burgers, and beers. Because, why not?

Where do you see yourself in five years?  
Surrounded by good people, feeling accomplished, and thinking about the next phase of my life.

The perfect Los Angeles weekend?
A bike ride in Venice, brunch with friends, scouring the melrose flea, backyard cocktails with friends, a bit of gardening, and bad TV.

  • one of my favorite home tours so far! I just registered for the newsletter and followed TEG on twitter! My blog is called Chapter Three, I write about just about anything I’m feeling passionate about, good books, recipes, great fashion finds, etc. It’s called Chapter Three because as a recent university grad (marketing & PR) I find myself entering the “third chapter” of my life’s story!

  • Just followed The Everygirl on Twitter and signed up for the newsletter! And I clicked this link on FBk because I loved the aesthetic, but stuck around because this girl sounds so cool!!

    Create + Cultivate sounds really special–sort of like a Marie Forleo meets designlovefest mashup. Anytime I find a combo of creatives/entrepreneurs I get really excited because that’s what I hope for my own career.

    Right now I blog about life as a TV news reporter/anchor (emilyrau.com) but this is exactly the kind of thing that inspires a well-curated daydream…

    Create + Cultivate speaks to every fiber in my body that is bursting to do more with my life! I am in Fashion PR and would love nothing more than to take my life by the horns and make it everything I dream it can be and more. Jaclyn, The Every Girl and all the panelists like Emily, Julia and Devon inspire me everyday. If given the opportunity to attend Create + Cultivate I know that it will set me spiraling into taking the HUGE first steps into living my the creative and cultivating life I dream of. I have so many ideas and inspiration and I know this is the perfect venue to kick it all off. The Every Girl gives me the fuel and inspiration each day to leave my safe job and do what I know I was meant to do. Thank you thank you for the chance to attend this amazing event. xo Lauren

  • I would LOVE, love, love to win a ticket to Create + Cultivate! I was just reading about the event the other day, but unfortunately decided it was a little out of my price range, so you can imagine my excitement when stumbling across this opportunity. I am so impressed by the panel of speakers, (many of whom I’ve admired for years), so to get the chance to hear them in person would be incredible. I write a Los Angeles-based life + style blog at http://www.adornedwithlove.com, so I’m always inspired by those who gain success through the path of entrepreneurship, and Jaclyn couldn’t be a more perfect example of just that.

It's going to focus on leading a healthy & happy creative life, full of healthy recipes, great workouts, fitness fashion finds and of course creative projects and inspiration. I would absolutely LOVE the opportunity to come to the Create & Cultivate Conference! It would truly be the spark I need to launch my blog.

My blog, WELL / AWARE, is all about wellness, fitness and conscious consumption geared toward young women who are looking for a lifestyle space that’s a little more pared down, minimalist but still accessible. It’s launched in “beta” and will go full force later month along with a podcast in March starting with New York profiles in the wellness and sustainability space, and expanding from there.

    I’ve never been to LA and would love the chance to meet like minded ladies at the conference!

    Love this cute home in LA! I have a fashion + lifestyle blog, Scotch & Sparkles. I am a proud member of all of the twenty something girls of my generation that are just trying to figure this all out and my blog is a way of doing that. I’ve been blogging for about a year and half now and just feel like I need guidance on how to take it to the next level. The conference would be such an amazing opportunity to do that!!

  • meadowlark

    Already a subscriber, and follower! So inspired by Jaclyn and what she’s been able to do with Create + Cultivate. I am working on launching a style collective that highlights my city’s local creative, design and retail community, all in the guise of helping local women feel more fabulous – while encouraging to shop local!! I would love to be able to learn how to create better content and gain insight from Jaclyn as well as the other great ladies at the conference so I can make this and the fellow blogger contributors a success!

    Looking to be inspired by more women and their stories of passion this year while I find my own purpose and path. Jaclyn is definitely one of them. Attending Create + Cultivate would be an incredible experience. Following you!

  • I absolutely LOVE THE LOOK & VIBE of Jaclyn’s home. It feels so comfy and cozy but has a great mix of textures/colors/decor that creates an eclecti look.

    Following on twitter and registered for the newsletter. Keeping my fingers crossed!!

  • As a second-semester senior in college it is so encouraging and empowering to read about Jaclyn Johnson, and I feel relieved to know that one door closing does not mean that you cannot continue follow your dreams. It is so inspiring to hear that after being laid off from her job, she kept moving forward and created her own company. This is such an exciting digital age and as an entrepreneur also starting my own company and blog (The Fashion Cookbook- http://www.thefashioncookbook.com) during school, it is so special to read this article! Also, her home is stunning!! I can’t wait to “pin” these images for future apartment decorating inspiration<3

    Financially speaking, it would be sooo helpful to win tickets to this conference. I plan on going regardless, even if I have to majorly save and fundraise, because this is such an incredible experience.

    Thank you for this amazing opportunity and for posting such an awesome profile. It is such a joy to include the Every Girl in my daily routine and be such a powerful inspiration for my own blog. Definitely following along on all your social media channels as well as your newsletter!

    Cheers,

    Thanks so much for sharing this! I went to the site and LOVE what they’re doing to gather creatives. Inspiration galore!

  • Joyce

    I’m so glad I came across this post about Jaclyn Johnsons! As for someone who wants to be in the fashion industry as a stylist, this was sucha fun read and incredibly inspiring. I absolutely loved how Jaclyn was able to make thrifty finds look expensive when it’s all put together. I definitely followed The Everygirl on Twitter and signed up for the mailing list! Looking forward to more posts!

    My fashion blog: joycelaystyles.tumblr.com

    I created my blog not only to use as a digital portfolio, but also as something to reflect my various styles I’ve evolved (like a fashion diary). I started the blog two years ago for fun, but now I have friends or friends of friends come up to me asking me to raid their closet and put outfits together. That was when I realized this was something I extremely enjoyed and I hope to make it a career.

  • Meg

    This is one of my favorite home tours you’ve featured! Since I’m just starting my blog and making a major career transition, I loved all of Jaclyn’s advice. I’m trying to remind myself every day things happen for a reason and to let it go. I already follow TEG on every social media platform and now follow Jaclyn and NO SUBJECT as well:) http://www.sweethomechicagoblog.com

  • H E L L O ! My name is Mindy and I’m so excited for the chance to win a VIP ticket! This conference would be helpful as I plan the relaunch of my blog!

    My beauty blog currently focuses on making women look and feel pretty.
    In the next few months, I plan to relaunch my blog to incorporate my banking background to help women with financial literacy. I want to help women feel good about their looks as well as their F I C O score!

    Following on Twitter, Instagram, and email. Thanks again for the opportunity!

    What a creative and inspiring home! I am dying over that Parsons Desk–but I’m kind of Parsons-obsessed.

    I had the opportunity to meet Jaclyn at a conference this past fall, and she is super-engaging and so full of life.

    I’ve been following The Everygirl on Twitter for quite some time, but I did subscribe to the newsletter. I try to blog, but I keep scrapping it and starting over. Anyway, I’d love to attend Create+Cultivate because the speakers are women who have turned their passions and interests into their careers. They have built themselves to be at the top of their game, and what better inspiration is that?

  • Natalie Liles

    Love this! Where are the shelves in the kitchen from?

  • Lisadmai

    Love Jaclyn’s aesthetic/design style! I just signed up for the newsletter and started following @theevery girl on Twitter.
