This week I'm sharing our interview with Maxwell Ryan, founder of Apartment Therapy and author of several books on home and design. We recorded this interview in 2015 when he was on a tour for his most recent book, Apartment Therapy Complete and Happy Home. Even though this was several years ago, it's still one of our best interviews ever and I think you're going to get a lot out of it. In this re-release from our archives, Karen Grant is co-hosting with me and she just asked Maxwell to tell us about his overall approach to design and making a home.
On this episode of On The Little Yellow Couch I talk about the power of connections. Not the networking kind. But the power of feeling truly connected. To each other. And to the deepest reserves of strength and optimism we all have somewhere inside us. To encourage you and I to have real conversations where you get to actually speak with me instead of just listening to me talk, I hope you’ll take me up on my offer of some free consultation this summer! I’ve had the absolute pleasure of meeting some of you in person at one of our Style Retreats. And even though not everyone can make it to these special weekends, we can at least talk via email. I encourage you to subscribe to the Little Yellow Couch newsletter and send me an email about a decor or design dilemma you’re facing. I’ll get back to you ASAP (hopefully within 24 hours!) and we can work it through together to a solution. I look forward to hearing from you!
I am having two lovely friends back on the show with me today. I call them "the Ashleys" for short because they are Ashely Daly and Ashley Palmer, co-owners of Retro Den Tulsa. Today we talk about finding your true style by leaning in to who you are. Let's get started.
My guest this week is a designer who is local to where I live, which is in the Boston area. We've now met at two design conferences and I feel so lucky to have met her in person! She's a designer who really listens to her clients' frustrations and gives them a big bath of Calgon. (If you don't get that reference, I want to know. I want to know exactly how much older I am than you. Just out of curiosity). Anyway, Paige not only loves what she does, she truly loves her clients and her genuine desire to help them comes through loud and clear. You'll see what I mean in a minute.
