Happy holidays! I hope you’re able to relax, and to take some time to reflect on the last year and think about what is upcoming. I’m processing a big change myself, because in two weeks the storefront I’ve been in and loved for six years will no longer be mine. This is where I’ve grown my business, and I’m feeling a bit displaced.I’ve definitely been emotional, and I’ve been playing Dolly Parton’s Hard Candy Christmas on repeat. When you find your little corner of the world where you feel large and in charge, and it’s steeped in memories, it can be hard to let go. It’s tough to feel uncertain during the holidays, but answering your questions always brings me joy.

This episode, I answer questions about...

[9:11] Where to purchase large paintings and framed photographs (Stephanie)

[15:24] Choosing a color palette for a bathroom remodel (Vanessa)

[20:09] Keeping a room cohesive (Diana)

[24:56] Updating a kitchen without doing a full remodel (Diana)
