    “You have to shop around with vintage and antique. You have to physically go in and see it. You have to go into the shops. I think one of the most valuable pieces of advice that I’ve learned from chatting on our podcast too is you have to go out and shop in person. You have to touch the things, the fabrics, you have to sit on the sofas, feel the upholstery. Physically doing it is really important, especially and particularly with vintage.” 14:20

    Outdoor Furnishings | 5 Designer Tips

    Outdoor Furnishings | 5 Designer Tips

    This week we are going to talk about the elements of a well designed patio. We wanna really help you and set the stage for what your exterior experience will look like, so that you can throw a party and it feels authentic to you. We’re gonna show you some of the base rules that we tend to, to figure out what your style is outside, rules that help you know what to do and how to buy, and then why it works and creates this backdrop. This topic came to us after we were asked live by someone “OK, on outdoor spaces, do you buy the whole set, or do you kind of do it like the interior and mix and match?” So we thought it would be great to dedicate a whole episode to this topic and help you plan out your patio.

    “I feel like the longer I do design, the more I’m starting to really love the editor’s eye of restraint. Pulling back. Not being such a decorator that I’m trying to really mix and max to come up with some special formula that’s so tricky. I feel like the landscape is the hero in so many of the projects that we get to work on.” 11:54

Best design wingmen/wingwomen in the biz

I was getting in my car last week after an absolutely whirlwind meeting at the job site, which felt like drinking from a water hose with every trade asking me for elevations and renders and a million questions, all of which were 'immediate needs' to be addressed. I nodded and made promises and walked to my car wondering how in the world I was going to rise to the occasion. When I got in my car I immediately reached for my phone to turn on the Alice Lane Podcast, because I listen to it at all times, almost like a meditation, and without any forethought a little voice inside my head said 'Talk to me Goose' and I just started laughing because I realized that's what you and Sue and Jesse and Corey are to me at this point in my remodel and budding design career--you're my wingmen. So thanks to you and to them for all the support, even if from afar!

Enjoyed BOLD moves

Thank you for the Bold Moves episodes, loved seeing the visuals on YouTube.

A wonderful friendly and informative podcast!

I’ve been a long time listener and think the podcast is wonderful. There are so many wonderful guests and topics that are discussed. I try and listen each week to see what new and exciting information I will learn. My only critique or criticism would be the over use of the word “like”. There is one person saying the word like multiple times in a single sentence throughout the show. Once I heard it, I am unable to not hear it. Other than that the show is brilliant!
