I’m joined again this week by special guest Paulina DuPain, who is a designer at Affordable Interior Design by Uploft. She has been on previous podcast episodes before, and I knew her insight on the business side of interior design would help answer some more of your questions this week for part 2 of this series on the Business of Interior Design.


Last week, we talked about the rewards and challenges of the interior design industry, setting boundaries with clients, and so much more. Be sure to listen to that episode before diving into this week’s episode with more questions from the mailbag about the business side of interior design.


This episode, we discuss…

[2:15] Creating an apartment space that feels distinct yet cohesive (Francis)

[7:01] How to deal with clients that are upset with item sourcing issues (Chan)

[12:07] Pushing the paint color boundary with clients and what colors to stay away from (Jim)

[19:51] Day-to-day life as an interior designer and typical schedule (Rachel)
