We can't wait to introduce you to Alex Evjen of AVE Styles this week! We met up with her at Haven Conference this past Spring in Atlanta and are so excited to have her on the podcast. She is the Pinterest Queen, a fashion stylist and her gorgeous home is now being featured in magazines and all over the web. Her keen design sense and her authenticity shine through in everything she does and we know you will love her has much as we do. She also shares some amazing Pinterest tips with us. If you are not using Pinterest this way yet, you are missing out! Let's get chatting!
Today we're airing another episode of "On the LYC." You've probably figured this out but, LYC stands for Little Yellow Couch, and it symbolizes everything we're about: making time to have meaningful conversations with friends while sitting comfortably in a beautiful space. Or at least on an aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture!
Over the past few seasons, we've been collecting little bits of wisdom from the stylists and designers we've had on the show and quoting them on Instagram. When looking at these quotes all together, we've noticed several different themes emerge. So for 2017, we're going to base each of our "On The LYC" episodes on a different theme related to creating a home you love. November is all about LAYERING!
This week we're talking about how your passion can also be your saving grace when it comes to balancing work and home. Our guest this week is Nicola Broughton, otherwise known as The Girl With The Green Sofa. Nicola quickly amassed a huge Instagram following for her dramatic interiors, but she also has a day job. She's a financial director for a bio-research company, so she throws herself into decorating whenever she needs a creative fix. We always enjoy interviewing people with fabulous style who DON'T do it for a living because they can often clearly articulate why decorating is so personally fulfilling. And Nicola certainly does that in this interview!
Well Zandra and I have finally found our soulmates! We are so excited to have Ashley Daly and Ashley Palmer on the podcast today! They are the owners and creative minds behind Retro Den, a shop located in Tulsa, Oklahoma where they buy, sell, and trade vintage home goods and furniture as well some beautifully curated handmade goods and plants. They are absolute experts at layering vintage and new and have so much inspiration to share. We even wrap up the episode with a collective butchering of a furniture joke that will no doubt make you the hit a your next shindig.
