You Don't Know What You Can Do Until You Do What You Haven't Done Before

 
 
I recorded this interview with Bertille de Lestrade a few months ago but I've been saving it specifically to wrap up this season of the podcast, and, I think it puts a lovely, warm bow on top of our year.  That's because Bertille is the kind of person whom you sit with, share a cup of cocoa and smile the whole time she's talking.  So I hope that if you're driving around,...

Small Steps Toward a Sustainable Home

 

 

Going "green" has become much more the norm these days as all of us are coming to terms with the fact that our planet can't sustain lifestyles dependent on single use, disposable goods.  And we're all at different stages of transformation when it comes to changing our practices to ones that are more sustainable.  If building an eco-friendly home from the ground up isn't...

How We Used Paint to Make Our Bathroom Less Boring

 

 

We did a major bathroom reno quite a few years ago.  

We replaced the lino floor with basketweave tile.  We replaced the plexiglas shower insert with marble tile.  (Ok, it wasn't real marble.  But it really looks like it).  We got a new tub, toilet and sink.  The only thing that stayed was the wainscoting, which we painted.

Books Tell the Story of Your Style with Thatcher Wine

 

 

 If you are a book lover, how central are they to the feel of your home?  In this episode I interview Thatcher Wine, founder of Juniper Books.  Juniper is a very unusual company in that they don't publish new books.  They create covers for books and, more specifically, covers for whole collections.  When you look at the shelves, the book spines, an image...

Taking Ownership of Your Style with Studio LaLoc

 

 So, this interview is so good that I didn't edit out very much.  It's a bit longer than most we share here on Style Matters, and I even considered breaking it up into two parts, but honestly, I'm so excited about so many of my guests this season that I just don't have room in our schedule to extend this one!  So, get comfortable because you're in for a lot of little gems...
