Show Notes

In his 2003 book, Emotional Design, the well-known American academic, Don Norman, came up with a theory to capture how and why people react, and emotionally connect, to certain objects and visual experiences. His theory was that true delight and enduring pleasure in something can only be achieved if positive visceral, behavioural and reflective reactions are achieved. In this episode, Jeff and Susie are joined by Brian Woulfe of Designed by Woulfe to explore how this theory can be applied to the design of interior spaces. Is Don Norman’s approach just marketing spin or are there real benefits to be had? And, if so, how can designers ensure their clients respond positively to their designs on all levels? Thanks to our series partner Parkside Architectural Tiles for their support. The Interior Design Business is a Wildwood production.

Blogging For Interior Designers

Originating in the late 1990s, blogs were, initially, personal online diaries or journals, mostly written in internet cafes by gap year students on their travels. From these humble beginnings, and with the advent of social media, blogging has evolved into big business and is an important way for creative businesses of all kinds to engage with their target customers. But, writing a blog can be a daunting and arduous task! Is blogging worth the considerable effort involved? And, will it increase your client base and add to the profitability of your interior design business? In this episode, we are joined by Kate Watson Smyth, the property and interiors journalist, co-host of The Great Indoors podcast and author of the multi-award-winning interiors blog “Mad about the House” and Fiona Mostyn, specialist digital marketing coach for interior designers and founder of My Deco Marketing, to find out the answers to these and other burning questions.

Design For Activity-Based Working

In this episode, we’re joined by May Fawzy from award-winning interior architecture and design firm, MF Design Studio, to explore the impact of activity-based working on office design. Back in the day, the corporate workplace used to be filled with serried rows of employees in battery-style cubicles while bosses resided in spacious paneled offices on the upper floors of the building. Today’s organisations measure their success by the ideas, innovation and creativity of their teams. And, when individuals come together to talk, big ideas are born. The result is a more flexible approach to workplace design where staff can occupy any space at any point of their day depending on the activity they are performing. But what does activity-based working mean for the interior designer? Listen in to find out in this show, recorded at Workstories in Clerkenwell, the commercial furniture company, representing 6 brands carefully curated from across the globe for workspace, hospitality and residential projects. This show is brought to you with support from Bureau. ...

The latest episode is all about hard hats and hard knocks. Kia Stanford of London-based practice, Kia Designs, joins co-presenter Susie Rumbold, Past President of the British Institute of Interior Design and Principal of Tessuto to look at how designers can successfully manage contractors.

We also examine the problem situations that can arise with contractors and hear from Kia and Susie on ways that they’ve dealt with real issues on site. In a wide-ranging conversation, we also find out about Kia’s pathway into the profession and how she’s able to keep her sanity, reduce stress levels and switch off from interior design in her spare time.
