    Gail Davis: Redefining Traditional Style

    Gail Davis: Redefining Traditional Style

    Today on The Interior Collective, we’re reframing the definition of Traditional Interiors. What has predominantly been a white, euro-centric definition of traditional design is finally being dismantled with the recent showcasing of Black and BIPOC voices and their work in the industry. Traditions aren’t a universal thing, so Traditional Design shouldn’t be either. We’re chatting with renowned interior designer and fellow podcaster, Gail Davis as she shares what traditional interiors mean to her and the way traditional design should make you feel. Gail also guides us through her greatest lessons learned in interior design school and how she translates them into traditional design today.

    Kelli Lamb: How to Get Published in Both Print + Digital

    Kelli Lamb: How to Get Published in Both Print + Digital

    Unpopular opinion - digital press can actually be MORE valuable than print press these days for interior designers. While being published in the pages of a glossy magazine can be the pinnacle of press for designers, I honestly question how much traffic is actually getting driven to the source. On today’s episode of The Interior Collective, we welcome Kelli Lamb, Editorial Director of Rue Magazine, as she walks us through the benefits of both print and digital press. We’ll then take it a step further and share the perfect publication pitch process, so you can handle your own PR, without the need for a publicist.The Identite Collective and IDCO Studio present The Interior Collective, a podcast for the business of beautiful living with your host, Anastasia Casey and guest Kelli Lamb of Rue Magazine.

Thank you IDCO!

I am just transitioning into full time interior design and wanting to improve my systems, client experience and professionalism in a methodical way from what was previously a more casual, instinct based, winging-it style of work. I really appreciate the specific advice and best practices offered here. Its giving me some great insight and some worthwhile homework for growing & improving my business. I can’t wait for more episodes.
