Happy holidays. Great to be back with you. If you're watching on YouTube, you notice I have a little extra festivity, a little more bling. I'm wearing big ole earrings as I lean hard into the season's spirit! I am dazzling myself and my home for this fantastic moment in time, which basically takes place between Thanksgiving and the holiday season in December, when I just really lean hard to nesting, decorating, and making the home feel cozy and getting ready for, in my case, Christmas. 


My other favorite thing about this time of year is the parties. Now I own my own business. So we have a virtual party during COVID. Because everybody that works for me is virtual, whether or not we're close together. And we rarely get a chance to meet together. So we will have a party in January. But I love going to other people's parties because I don't have to plan or host them. And it's just such a festive time. 


Without further ado, let me get to the questions that are already in my mailbag. 


This episode, we discuss…

[8:17] Help planning an open space with a diagonal wall (Kristen)

[17:02] How do I warm up my space while keeping it simple? (Stacey)
