Today we're airing another conversation from our Little Yellow Couch, called "On The LYC." These episodes are where Zandra and I get to dig a little deeper into a topic that was brought up in our interviews with stylists and designers from recent shows. We offer some examples from our own lives where we're changing things up in our homes, and we also share one thing that each of us is currently obsessing over. January is all about CHANGE!
Zandra and I are so happy to have Nicole Cole of Vestige Home on the podcast this week! Nicole is a maker and interior designer based in Philadelphia. Her online shop is filled with her gorgeously crafted one-of-a-kind wooden housewares as well as carefully curated items from other designers and makers. Her interior design services also focus on this attention to craftsmanship and the idea of living well. On the podcast we talk about creativity, caring for handmade items and why it is important to invest in them as well as her amazing new guest room / office space which she revealed during the most recent One Room Challenge!
Bari Ackerman, better known as Bari J, the highly successful textile designer and artist, is pure joy to chat with. Her designs have been made into everything from rugs to stationery to wallpaper and pillows. And we were really interested in how someone forges that kind of career and we were completely enthralled with what she had to say. If you have any shred of self doubt about what you're pursuing, Bari's story will pull you out of the muck and into a place of purpose and determination! Which is why we wanted to share this interview right at the beginning of the year when we can all use a shot of optimism!
We are so excited to be back for a new season of the Style Matters Podcast and our first guest is one of our favorite designers and people of all time. Justina Blakeney is the designer, artist and author behind the Jungalow. She is the author of The New Bohemians : Cool and Collected Homes and her newest book The New Bohemians Handbook: Come Home To Good Vibes. We chat about her business, creativity, her books and what makes a home have a good vibe. She will inspire you to begin 2018 with a home that supports who you want to become.
