Being Home With Hunker is a podcast where each week we chat with designers, artists, and creatives in the spaces that express and shape their identities: their homes.

On the Being Home With Hunker podcast in July, we spoke with Kate MacKinnon on bedroom Feng Shui tips; Trisha Sprouse on DIY tools and tips for creating our own home decor; Robin Zachary on how to use prop styling tips to create beautiful moments and vignettes in our home spaces; and we even added into this episode our chat with plant enthusiast Stephanie Horton, AKA Botanical Black Girl, on the best plants to add to our kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. She was on the cusp of July/August, but it was so good, we wanted to include here since her conversation ties in with creating meaningful spaces for ourselves.
