    Making Home a Refuge | Making Quarantine Comfortable: COVID 19

    In this episode of Dear Alice we are talking about how to make a refuge while most of us are working remotely. We typically work for most of the day so making sure that where you work feels uplifting can really affect your work and how you overall feel. However, this isn’t just about work. Being asked to social distance ourselves and stay home gives us all a challenge to keep home feeling comfortable and alive. Join us as we talk about how feel best during this difficult time.

    Motivation to Eat at Home | Pantry Design and Organization

    In this Episode of Dear Alice, we talk again with Morgan Hadley. We brought Morgan back on to help us talk about pantries. We cover everything from beginning design stages to organization and upkeep. We discuss what kind of shelving, the difference between butler’s pantries and a typical pantry, and then all the amazing tools that Morgan uses to help organize pantries. Everything as usual is focused on lifestyle and how to enjoy your home more.

    “I feel like a pantry is really interesting. You kind of see how people are, like food people have is really funny. I’m like, ‘wow! I’ve never eaten this before but you have a bulk of it! The other day someone had a bulk of marshmallows!” 7:41

    Designing for your lifestyle | Living with Kids & Pets

    In this episode of Dear Alice, we talk about how to have a beautiful home even if you are living with kids or pets. So many people say they’ll wait until their kids are grown up before they will invest in decorating their home they way they really want to. We don't think you have to wait. We talk about what fabrics to choose for your lifestyle from color to composition so it can be forgiving with spills, stains, and pet hair as well as how to maintain and refurbish your furniture. We also address the constant challenge of toy organization.

    “I think that the most important thing to make sure this [sofa] is forgiving is not to go super dark. It’s like a black car. It doesn’t show dirt well.” 10:30

    Being Inspired by your Home | Artwork

    In this episode of Dear Alice we are talking about art. This seems to be one of the harder things to get right the first time in a home. You want to find something that speaks to you, something that you would love to look at everyday. This can depend on your experiences in life, what makes you happy, and what it is that you want to remember. It’s also important to find what styles you like. We talk about how to find art, what to use as art, how to get art to work together, and more simple things like how to find the right height for your art.

    It's About the Journey | Hallways

    In this episode of Dear Alice we are talking about hallways. Especially in this age of open floor plans, it sometimes feels like the journey of walking through a house can be lost. The hallway is an opportunity to have a smaller, more intimate moment and doesn't have to be a means to an end. We talk about how to make hallways more exciting with flooring choices and transitions, lighting and artwork. All of this can help your hallway become a place where you can stay a little longer.

    How to Spruce up hallways 2:00
    Decorating Walls 8:50
    How to Light a Hallway 11:16
    Using Closets in non Closet Way 15:36
    Vestibule 20:39

    “So to collect all of your groupings of family photos, a really great place to do that is in a hallway. And the reason why is because it’s an intimate space; you’re up close. So you can actually see the details.” 8:47

Customer Reviews

Jenny Willis ,

No Environmental Awareness

Some of their designs are interesting and there is some practical advice here but this is definitely the most shallow decorating podcast around. There is a lot of emphasis on trying to make your decor look “expensive” and thereby seeming “successful” and there is zero emphasis on sustainability.
