Two special guests that you may already know are joining me today, Kelly Wilkniss and Anita Joyce, from Decorating Tips and Tricks Podcast. I love their podcast, and the information they share is so harmonious with what I share with you. With this being such a natural connection, it was a no-brainer for me to have them on the show to share about themselves and give some of their favorite tips and tricks for decorating.

This episode, we discuss…

[2:07] Kelly and Anita share their lives before design + how they go into interior design

[6:16] Creating a more personal connection with podcasting + how they co-host together

[12:44] Using photographs to capture a different view and the evolution of a space

[14:59] The three crucial lighting sources you need for each room

[18:24] Artwork sizing for the focal point of a room

[22:53] Leave room for negative space instead of cluttering things up

[25:38] Limiting your color palette to just a few cohesive colors

[27:06] Create a sense of flow from room to room

[32:17] Avoid the trendy designs you see all over the place online

[37:28] Finding your style and aiming for a collected look that resonates with you
