Phew, you survived the treacherous journey through the worldwide web to find yourself here, at the show notes for Episode #31 of kokokara Has A Podcast. On this week’s episode, we didn’t find love in a hopeless place, but we found a beach house color in a surprising one. Yes, several weeks, multiple test swatches, and 1,500 comments later, we’ve finally settled on a color for our beach house’s exterior – and the decision came from one of the most random places! Plus, we talk to blogger, designer, and Domino contributor Jenny Komenda about the challenges of running a design business and what decor trends she’s noticing in the new year. And we’re digging some pretty weird stuff this week. We’ll just leave it at that.
