Design Oracles is a podcast for anyone interested in residential architecture and interior design. Two
design professionals, Dianne Kett, Architect, and Amity Worrel, Interior Designer, explore and share
topics from working with design professionals to how to avoid or embrace design trends, to discussions
of design periods in history. We are here to educate, pontificate and evangelize about the subject of
residential interior design. We invite the student, the home owner the curious and those seeking
knowledge to join us, The Oracles, in a discussion of all things related to homes, home design,
decorating and architecture.
Do not forget to email your questions the Design Oracles if you have anything you would like us to
answer or reveal!

Bathroom Tricks of the Trade
The Design Oracles wax poetic about bathroom design, the trends, the things to keep in mind and some of their own personal likes and dislikes. Bathrooms are as important as kitchens when it comes to thoughtful design and finishes!
The Design Oracles would be doing a disservice to not bring up a discussion of window treatments for the home. The mystery of what a window treatment is, what it can do for you, what the importance of it is in the home and why you should care! We interview a specialist in the field because as we expect our clients to do, we “trust the professional”.
All about Windows
he Design Oracles discuss the types of windows to consider in your new build, renovation or addition project for your residence. There are so many things to know about function, type, efficiency, and cost. We are here to help you make a good choice and understand the importance of those choices.
Color Selection Ain't for the Faint of Heart
The Design Oracles take on one of the most popular subjects for design clients and that is color....how to choose it, the emotional effect, the practical steps for getting it right and some secrets of the trade for choosing it. Hint...color is not just about paint!
Suitability in Design
The Design Oracles wax poetic about the basic philosophy of good design which all stems from the suitability of the design for the space, the lot, the client, the investment and the desired outcome! Suitability is the guide.
