Your home is a big part of your life, it reflects where you have been, what your priorities are, how you approach life and it sets the tone for your day to day, which ultimately shapes your future. What you surround yourself with is a big deal and it’s worth talking about, extensively. We are not just discussing paint colors and floor plans, it’s how you want to move about your day, the types of activities you make space/time for and the life you want to live. I am Britney Johnson, as an interior designer I have worked on projects in every sector, with budgets in the millions, celebrity clients and big name corporations but I am most proud of the people I have helped, predominately woman, find their voices in the construction process and own their style. I have mastered the building process and learned the secrets of creating a truly authentic home. I am sharing it with the world because I understand how important a home it and it’s more than just a roof over your head. It’s a place where you feel safe to be your authentic self. Whatever that may be.

HELPFUL + INFORMATIVE
Britney + Bjorn are a breath of fresh air in the industry. I think so many of us have been personally victimized by contractors and been mansplained to SO much haha - that it’s helpful to know you’re not alone and learn about the industry from them! Also, the podcast is so informative and they truly want to help you succeed in your home building projects! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Relevant & necessary DIY topics!
The information covered in the episodes so far is incredible and it’s very difficult to find THIS level of perspective anywhere online! In terms of DIY podcast content, these topics cover so much of the white space in the ‘community’.
As a bit of feedback, the talking over eachother and cutting off each others thoughts is VERY disruptive to the listening experience (in my opinion!). Respect the comprehensiveness of each other’s thoughts and let the listeners understand the commentary in full before jumping in (likely something that takes time to develop but again, just my opinion).
Thank you for this content and all of the knowledge shared!
Such Helpful Content
