Designers Heidi Caillier, Keita Turner, and Crystal Sinclair share how they have faced—and faced down—all sorts of dilemmas, why trust and transparency are crucial and finger-pointing is useless, and why it is always best to get it in writing.

    What Makes Toronto Such a Design Destination?

    Toronto is one of the fastest growing cities in North America—and one of the most stylish.

    MacDonald—weigh in on why they love Toronto, how its many different neighborhoods
    shape their work, and the increasing sophistication of their clients. But they also address
    the unique problems—from shipping complications to import duties to the reams of

So Interesting!

This podcast is so interesting if you love interior design. I don’t listen to the ones that are more about the business, because I am just a homeowner, but the ones about aesthetics and sustainability are really great. I have added a lot of the designers interviewed to my Instagram feed so I can get ideas from their beautiful work.

Do you love design?

Michael Boodro is a knowledgeable host with an engaging personality. His guests come from a variety of backgrounds so the show is always fresh. I’m not a designer, but was just someone interested in learning something new. My favorite episode is No.38 with Bunny Williams.
