Happy Thanksgiving! Are you supposed to be making cranberry sauce right now? Are you escaping into the bathroom, the closet, or the basement, just to catch your breath and get some alone time? I feel you!  I love having people over, and I love to cook (even though I’m not all that good at it!) but I’m an only child at heart and every now and again, I need my personal space.  So if you need some time to yourself to think about interior design, I have an episode for you!

This episode, I answer questions about...

[10:19] Making a bedroom feel balanced despite an unbalanced window placement (Carrie)

[22:05] Updating a galley kitchen (Cindy)

  • [23:39] Cabinetry
  • [27:56] Crown molding, countertops, backsplash, and hardware
  • [31:26] Lighting over the kitchen sink
  • [31:49] Kitchen sink
  • [32:22] The space between the kitchen and the open concept dining area
