We’re halfway through November. Kids’ sports are winding down, and the supply chain issues have forced me to start my holiday shopping early. I also just learned that home goods will be going up in price, so I’m passing this warning on to you: Now is the moment to refresh your home with new furniture and decor.

This episode, I answer questions about...

[7:24] Decorating a kitchen without the budget for a renovation (Nicola)

[11:58] Making a full length piano keyboard look good in a small space (Nicola)

[16:21] Designing a combination living room and home office space (Desiree)


To see the accompanying pictures, make sure you head over to and check out the YouTube channel or our social media pages.
