Fabulous and entertaining

Love these two , such great tips and resources for interior design. Really easy to listen to , the Facebook page is great but I wish it was a private group like Sophie’s Colour group as I don’t want all my friends and colleagues seeing my posts , maybe I need an alias?

Funny and informative

Love this podcast. Entertaining and lighthearted but with genuinely really useful, practical tips and ideas. Keep up the good work.

Informative and Funny

The podcast is informative and I’ve enjoyed listening from the beginning however, I wish the content was a bit more generalisable, it seems very much geared towards people like Sophie and Kate, which is great if that’s you but not so great when there’s a plethora of underrepresented interior designers/ celebs that they could be talking to or about. I’m hoping S3 onwards is more representative of the world we live in today.
