Podcast : A Place To Talk, London

Interior Design Podcast

Whether it’s a calming bedtime story to help us drift off to sleep or inspiring conversations between industry visionaries, we love listening to a good podcast. Our Managing Director and Founder Brian Woulfe sat down for a chat with Luis De Oliveira, founder of De La Espada, in one of his interior design projects in London’s St John’s Wood neighbourhood.

‘A Place To Talk’ sees Luis sit down with a wide range of people representing different points of view within the interior design world. In their conversation together, Brian explains how his design process is a journey he goes on with each client, where he investigates how to deliver a solution tailored to their individual needs. He also touches on how having vision boards can be challenging as that often gets in the way of a rewarding design process and clients with a ‘Pinterest vision’ can sometimes stunt the possibilities.
