Ep 2: Kelly's Partner in Crime- Yvette Freeman, Owner of Foundry + D3 Keepin' It Real with Stylish Patina

    • Entrepreneurship

Yvette and Kelly are soul sisters and have been starting, building and scaling businesses together for over a decade now. Yvette will be a regular on Keepin' It Real since she is Kelly's partner in crime and #1 sanity checker. Between the two of them they have enough business ideas, strategies and plans for everyone!  ** Pardon the poor audio ....we are doing what we can in a Pandemic. ** We promise the content is worth sitting through.

More about today's guest my bestie Yvette Freeman -- For more than twenty years, Yvette Freeman has been designing and building award-winning, luxurious, and unique spaces in the District of Columbia and across the Southeast. This passion has taken her around the country and throughout Europe rummaging through barns, warehouses, flea markets, and estate sales. Along the way, she’s reclaimed materials, furniture and home décor — some centuries old — to incorporate into her distinctive, contemporary designs. Yvette’s two-decade obsession has become more than a personal hobby. It’s a story of professional excellence and commitment to the preservation and repurposing of some of the most magnificent mixed-use and single-family homes ever built. If you ask Yvette she will tell you that every piece has a story and you should collect what you love, if you do that, you’ll never go wrong.

1:30 How Yvette and Kelly met.

3:30 Yvette leaving for school and how it impacted her love for design.

6:00 Why as a woman it’s important to get a ”Seat At the Table”.

12:00 Where is your personal space for your home?

14:00 Yvette and Kelly discuss the gift of sisterhood in business.

17:00 What does Yvette love about designing?
