September is bringing some changes here - the kids are going back to school, and my storefront lease may be coming to an end.  My store is a special place where I have grown my business, and grown this podcast, so it’s definitely tugging at my heartstrings.  I don’t know yet where my next chapter will be, but I will be opening up an amazing new location soon.  

While I plan all of that in the background, please keep sending me your questions at .  I’m always excited to help you!


This episode, I answer questions about...

[5:11] Balancing a career in interior design with having a family

[8:13] Lighting in an open concept room with eight foot ceilings (Brandi)

[14:45] Matching new furniture with current furniture (Joanne)
