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.

Sometimes we can get a little serious on this podcast because we're looking at the substance behind style.  Our purpose is to dig into the reasons behind why style matters.  But since we're talking about decorating, we also want to remember that sometimes it's just about having fun!  We know you can relate to that feeling of excitement you get when you're about to change something up, start a new project or redecorate an entire room.  And to start off our spring and summer season,  we've got the perfect guest for you!  Kim Leggett of City Farmhouse has been collecting, curating, speaking and writing about her lifestyle approach to decorating for many years.  By the end of the conversation, you're going to be grabbing your calendar and planning out your numerous visits to antiques fairs with that sweet, energized feeling of anticipation!  You know what we mean.... that feeling of knowing you're about to find that one-of-a-kind perfect thing that you didn't even know you were missing!   We also talk with Kim about her beautiful new book, City Farmhouse Style, what "farmhouse" means to Kim and why it's so versatile.  Get ready to be inspired!

When we first found out about Sean Scherer, all we knew was that he had a cool antiques shop in upstate New York called Kabinett and Kammer.  But after getting the chance to talk with him, we now know he's so much more than a shop owner.  At home and work, Sean creates entire worlds filled with wonderous objects reminiscent of scientific exploration in the 19th century.  He calls his style "masculine maximalism" and if you love taxidermy and other collected pieces from the natural world, you'll be right at home with him.  He's also an accomplished abstract painter and speaks eloquently about how his idea of what it means to be an artist has evolved.  His medium now includes not only his canvases, but his shop and home as well.   This is one of our most thought provoking episodes and we are truly excited to share it with you!
