And finally, did you know that this podcast officially turned one? We're proud of this little baby! In September we aired an episode with clips from every guest we've had on the show this past year. I highly recommend you listen to that full episode. There are such wonderful thoughts, advice, and stories about home, design, and helpful ways to make our spaces reflect our identities. Serena Dugan, textile designer and founder of Serena & Lily, kicked off the episode about the power and beauty of handmade objects.
