Has quarantine made you think about your design choices in your home?
Today, we have Rachel from Crate and Cottage on the show to talk all about house design without breaking the bank. She shares with us that after having her first son she had postpartum, experienced a lot of depression and anxiety. So she was looking for a creative outlet that was just for herself other than being a mom and it came in the form of decorating. I feel like for most of us being stuck at home for COVID-19 it has either made you really appreciate how you have designed your home or its made you think twice about how your home is currently set up. Rachel shares with us her journey of building her dream farmhouse and how she is already changing the aesthetic after 3 years of living in it. I also picked her brain about buying things online especially rugs and how to easily return them. She talks about her favorite shopping places with us from where to buy rugs, lighting and decorations for the house. Lastly, I asked her how to make an outdoor space special even if it’s small and you don’t have a lot of money and her answer will probably surprise you! One tip that I thought was really interesting is when she mentioned that removing things from one room and putting it in another and how that can make a big difference without even spending money! Hear what she says about this topic and more on the podcast.
