About this episode’s guest

Kathryn Goldenoak is an interior designer, founder of Spring Green Interior Design in Arlington MA: ”Good design should speak to the heart of the occupant. Functionality is not enough; in order to delight the spirit, a space must also resonate with its daily inhabitants on a personal level. My passion is creating homes that celebrate and reflect the unique interests and tastes of each client.” She can be reached at http://www.springgreendesign.com.
