Style Matters

Style Matters is all about the substance behind developing a personal style in your home and surrounding yourself with beauty in a way that is meaningful. We interview top stylists, designers, artisans and tastemakers both nationally and internationally about why style matters to them. The guests we interview each week inspire us creatively, and give us insight into why the art of home making is so powerful. To continue the conversation on why style matters, sign up for our monthly newsletter, packed with photos, stories, tips and resources, at www.littleyellowcouch.com.

This week we talk with Hannah Russell, co-founder of Layer, an online, curated marketplace of vintage items, based in London.  The items for sale are bought and sold by professional antiquarians but anyone can apply to be a seller, much like eBay.  Unlike eBay, Layer is set up more like a fantastic thrift store or antiques shop with a charming atmosphere, rather than experiencing an impersonal online product search.  Hannah and her co-founder and sister, Faith Russell, are passionate about design and how the shoppers will incorporate their purchases into their homes.  Hannah and Faith believe the best way for your home to tell your story is to layer it with history.  The kind of history that is a mix of your own experiences and those of the objects and furniture themselves.  We are so happy to have Hannah with us today to talk about buying, styling and living with vintage!

Welcome to the second installment of On The LYC , a periodic special episode where Zandra and I sit down for a chat about design dilemmas, our current obsessions and some "why not" ideas.  We even answer a listener's design question.  This episode is all about the upcoming holidays, so come hang out with us on the Little Yellow Couch!

This week we talk with one of our favorite people on Instagram, Lisa Dawson.  Her dramatic style immediately pulled us in but it's her personality that has us hooked!  You'll know what we mean once you start listening!  In this episode, we chat about getting rid of a perfectly good kitchen, developing an aesthetic that doesn't care about other people's opinions, and how to do everything on a budget.  You can find her on her blog, take one of her workshops, if you're lucky enough to live in Northern England, or dive right in to her Instagram feed.  You will be so glad you did!

We are joined this week by the lovely Jeran McConnel of Oleander & Palm, a lifestyle and design blog.  Jeran shares with us about living a simple life in California.  Her website is full of visual and DIY inspiration and her design sense comes from years of living abroad in third world countries.   She lives and exudes that sense of industriousness and gives us some great tips on where to get started.
