"Every cabinet door is open and has been since the last time I needed something inside. In this drawer: two old Blackberry phones, a turkey baster, an old checkbook. Is that a driver's license? Yes – expired in 2013. I could win Let's Make A Deal with this drawer. I think I'm just wired to be disorganized." 

Hoda's open-plan living room and kitchen make for a welcoming and vibrant hub of the home. It is decorated with a muted cream color scheme, while rustic wooden kitchen cupboards and a soft linen couch with matching cushions create a comfortable and cozy feel. Hoda has also displayed various paintings and drawings by her children on the fridge-freezer.
