Things are a little different because I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Toronto. Very exciting. What a beautiful town. What a fun time. Lots going on, I go to either Toronto or Chicago for my business class. And so most of the time I spent in the hotel right outside the airport learning and on long drives listening to audiobooks was very exciting. But I'm so glad to be back with you. My WiFi is still spotty in the cottage.

So you'll see I'm phoning in, if you're watching on YouTube, I'm recording here in my husband's office, which is filled with boxes, DVDs, and bare walls. It's an evolution guys, it's been a more painful evolution than I'd hoped. But we are getting there slowly. But surely, I hope that you're doing well. I hope that you're evolving, changing for the better, whatever that looks like for you.

Alright guys, well, a lot of questions have been coming in, like I shared with you. Everybody, including my interior design firm, gets the itch to design right about now. This is our busy season. October is always a booming month for us, where people really get into gear and want to take their place to the next level. And from the looks of my mailbag. You guys are feeling the exact same way. 

So let me optimize our time together and dig in and answer your questions. 

This episode, we discuss…

[4:22] Are there other safety concerns when designing a nursery?  (Emily)

[13:39] Where do I place the chair of my sectional? Part up against the wall, or use that wall for an end table? (Deborah) 

[16:00] How do I style my Large Open Kitchen Space (Kay)
