    Episode 300: Drapes and So Much More

    Change is in the air… I redecorated the storefront for Fall, and I got to buy some fun new things due to the flood damage.  This month we are also rebranding as Uploft Interior Design!  Don’t worry, the podcast will stay as Affordable Interior Design - but it’s by Uploft.  I’m really excited about the change, and it’s going to allow us to expand and grow.  My life in general is a bit in flux right now, and I’m learning to enjoy the literal and metaphorical changes in seasons.

    Episode 297: Lots to Remember This September

    Episode 297: Lots to Remember This September

    I’m in a celebratory mood!  September holds a lot of meaning here at Affordable Interior Design.  It’s back to school time, and it’s also my anniversary.  I celebrated my personal anniversary with my husband of 11 years, and our anniversary happens to be September 11th.  So as a New Yorker, this date has extra meaning.  It was 9/11 that spurred me to become an interior designer. I also celebrated my business anniversary - it’s my 16th anniversary of being in business.  I still can’t have a big celebration due to the pandemic, so I’m celebrating in a small way.  It’s me, my dog, and the podcast listeners.  It’s really easy to miss the wins because you’re so busy with the to-do list, so thank you for indulging me as I celebrate this win.
    I also want to celebrate that I get to help you guys by answering your questions. Please send me your questions at affordableinteriordesign.com/podcast .  I’m always excited to help you!
    This episode, I answer a question about...
    [14:31] To paint the ceiling, or not to paint the ceiling (Griffin)

    Episode 296: Go Bold!

    September is bringing some changes here - the kids are going back to school, and my storefront lease may be coming to an end.  My store is a special place where I have grown my business, and grown this podcast, so it’s definitely tugging at my heartstrings.  I don’t know yet where my next chapter will be, but I will be opening up an amazing new location soon.  
    While I plan all of that in the background, please keep sending me your questions at affordableinteriordesign.com/podcast .  I’m always excited to help you!
