Ren Annette ,

Great Don’t podcast but

No one is taking my faux fur away from me !! :)

Charli Jane ,

Sadly, no longer a fan.

I use to be a big of Betsy and the podcast. Lately, I feel like she has blinders on when it comes to styles that don’t fit her own…or are no longer “trendy.” I was listening to her advise someone on flooring for their Victorian home and she really tried to persuade them into doing tile (which was fine), but what was off putting was her comment that if you don’t like tile to “get over it.” Also, when she did her podcast on things that are “out” or no longer trending, her despise for so many things was insulting. For those who may have shiplap on a wall feel scorned…or that they may need to rip it out ASAP, and replace it!! I feel like she should offer advice on how to work around the things that are too costly to replace. Waterfall countertops??? It’s ok!! Don’t change it if you love it and it makes you happy! I listen to a lot of amazing designers and what I am hearing from the majority of them is to do what makes you happy. If it FEELS good (and sentimental) when you walk into your home then you are doing something right!! Design is very personal.
