    How to Design Your Space to Serve You + Holistic Design Strategies with Carrie Leskowitz

    On the show today, I am sitting down with Carrie Leskowitz. Carrie is an interior designer who is focused on taking a very deep and holistic approach to home design.  She just wrote a book called OM for the Home which is a holistic approach to interior design for your overall well being, body, mind, and spirit.







    We have an amazing conversation about how our homes should be more than just the place we live and some tips and tricks that can get you there. I am beyond excited to have Carrie on the show today and I think it is a really important conversation for those of us who are looking to get more out of space and truly create a home that serves our everyday life.

Yayawoo123 ,

Come back!!

Really hoping that Cara starts podcasting and releasing cadenced episodes again… Truly my favorite home design podcast of them all!

doc always learning ,

Pandemic must!

Listening to Cara's podcast has made pandemic projects more doable this past year. We all have it in us - just gotta do it!

Homebodyandmind ,

Authentic, accessible - listen and create your dream home

Cara is a force of nature. For real. This podcast is like finding a new bestie who is warm, empathetic and wise - and a design guru who breaks down and shared her vast pool of wisdom in a way that cuts through the overwhelm and self-doubt and gets to the heart of what great design is: a way of creating an environment that serves, reflects and uplifts you and your family. I listen to one of Cara's podcast and the ideas and solutions to problems start flowing. Today I listened to a couple of her podcasts about making rooms serve your needs and I looked around the room I was sitting in and a) realized I could hide the ugly wifi router in a cute basket I had elsewhere under some throw pillows and blankets, then we could use the pillow and blankets on the sofa as needed. b) I could declutter a little ottoman of old toys that my kids no longer used and fill it with their distance learning phonics/sight word books and games that I use with them on that couch. All those materials were piling up on the floor around d the sofa and really messing with my head. Yay!
I am so grateful to you, Cara, for all the hard work you put into this and all of your wonderful guests too.
