A few weeks back I was contacted by Zandra and Karen of the blog Little Yellow Couch about participating in their podcast, Style Matters. As they say, the podcast is about “why developing a style that reflects who you are is a key component of happiness.” They are lovely and intelligent, and enthusiastic about design and decor for all the right reasons, and I jumped at the chance to talk with them.
I am the kind of person who records an outgoing message and then never listens to it — hearing my recorded voice makes me contract in agony. Nonetheless, after Katie and my mother-in-law both listened to the podcast and told me I didn’t sound like an idiot, I got up the gumption to take a listen for myself. Thanks entirely to Karen and Zandra’s easy and welcoming manner, it turned out great, so great that I am actually excited to share it here. You can listen to it by following this link, or by finding the Style Matters podcast on iTunes. They also wrote a blog post about our discussion, taking something I said off hand and turning it into an interesting idea about the longevity of design.
So take a listen, and be sure to check out the other Style Matters podcasts where Zandra and Karen interview design blog glitterati like Grace Bonney of Design Sponge, and Rachel Faucett of Handmade Charlotte. And stay tuned for a special holiday edition of the podcast, which includes a little Alaska holiday lore from yours truly!
Huge thanks to Karen and Zandra for including Red House West on Style Matters!
