Have you ever wondered what exactly it is that a Prop Stylist does? My guest is Heather Bullard who does prop styling and art direction for a number of different magazines and brands. By the end of this interview, you'll have a better understanding of what that means! She talks with us about the importance of sometimes getting away from the very images she creates so that we can remain true to our own, individual tastes and not be quite so influenced by social media. She shares with us her own source of inspiration and how her style has evolved over the years.
In this episode of the Style Matters podcast, I interview Donna Garlough, Style Director for Joss & Main and author of the new book, "Your Home, Your Style: How to Find Your Look and Create Rooms You Love." What I love about this book is how practical it is! Donna is really good at breaking down some of the more "mysterious" aspects of creative design. She does this by having you start with an inventory of sorts. She refers to it as figuring out your design disposition. It takes into consideration how you approach things--how you tend to make decisions, how you take in and process information, where your comfort zone is--things like that. After she takes you through the different design dispositions and outlines the 5 things you'll need to consider for every style decision you make, there are all of these little "ah ha" moments sprinkled throughout the book. It's so helpful! Ok, let's get started.
The Style Matters podcast: Interview with artist, Angela Chrusciaki Blehm. We talk about her artwork and stunning home. She explains how she uses scale to create atmosphere and how she keeps her bright color palate looking sophisticated rather than childish.
I'm delighted to talk with the founders of Hygee & West, Aimee Lagos and Christiana Coop. If you haven't heard of them, they are a wallpaper company, one of my personal favorites, actually. Recently, the've expanded into printing some of their wallpaper lines onto fabric AND they've just written their first book called, "Hygee & West Home: Design for a Cozy Life." In this interview we get to hear about how wallpaper is made, what their own homes look like, and why they think wallpaper is such a powerful design choice.
