Space and Reason

I heard Kristina on a Spark Joy podcast. I was taken by her unique and detailed approach to “creating a home that thrives”. This was just right up my alley!! (Not to mention she has the most soothing voice!) She takes looking at our homes to a much deeper level than I’d ever been challenged with.. and this is a topic I’ve been interested in since a tween.. (back then it was organizing and decorating my bedroom. I would encourage anyone who is even slightly interested in your home to give Kristina’s podcasts a listen and see what inspiring thoughts and actions she does for you!! Enjoy!!

Game Changer

I headed over to Home Space + Reason after hearing Kristina as a guest on the Spark Joy podcast. FASCINATING dialog & ideas! Practical tips & product suggestions with touches of history & psychology. I can’t get enough of this podcast & the ways it’s helping me rethink every inch of my home & how I want it to function. I have hit the share button at least a dozen times. Thanks Kristina!

Adore this podcast

I learned of Kristina and this podcast through the Spark Joy podcast and thought I’d try it. I’m now binging and completely obsessed. She has a great tone, the podcasts are auditorily interesting and of course the subject matter is delightful. Not an episode has gone by without me writing down a project for my house. It’s not overwhelming or preachy - just your best friend making suggestions that you of course have to do because ... duh! You should have thought of that! Love this podcast - highly recommend!
