What a week it's been! With the scramble to close up shop before we traveled to see family last week in Virginia for Thanksgiving, I'm just now coming up for air to share two exciting announcements related to the business side of Mix & Match Design Company:
- I was a guest for the first time on an interior design podcast and...
- On that podcast, I shared a first glimpse into the soon-to-be-released online course and now I'm letting you in on the details right here on the blog! (*Update! Enrollment is now open! Head over to the course website for details and to sign up!*)
Let's chat about the podcast for a minute first. I was thrilled to be interviewed by LuAnn Nigara on her show called A Well Designed Business, which is a podcast all about the business side of interior design. I talk all about what it's like to run a 100% online interior design business, why I'm so passionate about making design accessible and affordable for a new type of consumer, and how I make it work from a revenue perspective. It's truly an inside look at this relatively new kind of interior decorating service, and I'm so excited about the positive feedback it has received so far.

I know I don't usually talk business on the blog, but it was such a fun experience that I thought some of y'all might enjoy tuning in!
At the very end of the episode, I made an announcement for the first time publicly about my online course called How To Launch An E-Design Business that I'll be releasing in early 2018. Now that the cat's out of the bag, it's time to talk about it here too! So if you've ever wanted to start offering online interior design services, but don't know how or where to start, this course is for YOU, my friend.
Here are some of the details:
I founded Mix & Match back in 2015 and have learned a lot along the way. I'll take you through my journey, teach you about the world of e-design, help you figure out your business model, talk about how to get clients in the door, and walk you step-by-step through the nuts and bolts of e-design. We'll take a deep dive into very practical topics including workflow, tools, pricing, and marketing.
I've done all the hard work of strategizing, iterating, and going through trial and error so you don't have to! This course will provide an amazing foundation for you get your virtual interior design business up and running quickly so you can start working with your ideal clients.
No matter if you're looking to launch a side hustle, make a career switch, add e-design services to your full-service interior design business, or want the freedom of being your own boss, this course will help you get there.
I'll be sharing even more about it soon with those who are on my launch list. Be sure to sign up using the form below to stay in the loop!
Friday was a very exciting day here at Mix & Match - my house was featured on Apartment Therapy! Being published on a big-time website like AT has been a dream of mine for a long time, and to see my little Philadelphia row home be up there is wild. We've worked hard over the past two years to transform this 1200 square foot spot into a light, bright, and welcoming place for us to live in and share with others, and I'm excited for a broader audience to get a peek inside.
One of the Apartment Therapy photographers, Carina, of Love Me Do Photography, came to shoot our house back in June and I didn't know when it would be published, so my lips have been sealed for awhile, waiting for it to go live. She did a fabulous job capturing our home from all sorts of angles - many that I've never shared here on the blog!
Here's a peek at the dining room that opens up to our kitchen:
And here's a never-before-seen shot of my eclectic gallery wall in the "entryway." (I say entryway in quotes because it's more of a catch-all zone between the front door and our stairs!)
