1. INTRO We recently attended our 2nd immersion event with Designers Today Magazine and PBM Events – this time in Asheville, NC. We want to share with you all about our experience because if you are a designer at any level – right out of school or very seasoned – the value is tremendous. If you aren’t a designer and are listening to this episod ...…
 
1. INTRO We are very excited to announce that we are re-branding here at Kandrac & Kole.

One of them is referred to as e-design, which we will explain in depth. As a business, for 14 years, we hav ...…
 
1. INTRO It takes a village as they say and we couldn’t agree more. In last week’s episode on Partnerships, we discussed the importance of agreeing on what outsourcing expenses to incur as a company such as bookkeeping, tax prep, social media etc. Today we are going to talk about all the other people we rely on (and why) to make our business su ...…
 
August 15th marks our 14th year together as Kandrac & Kole. It has been quite a journey and similar to that of a marriage and raising a child! We’ve learned and grown so much in these 14 years and even though there have been some ups and downs, seriously we are luck to say there have been very few downs, it has been a great adventure. Several b ...…
 
1. INTRO We owe much of our success as Designers to the fact that we make a commitment every year (and many times twice a year) to invest our time and travel funds to the High Point Furniture Market. It is here that we have created literally hundreds of relationships with manufacturers, artisans, a long list of leaders in our industry and of co ...…

The Designer Experience is a two-and-a-half day symposium exclusively for the design trade. This creative forum puts a unique spotlight on North Carolina’s enduring legacy as a center for texti ...…
 
1. INTRO There was a time when all we sourced were bold paint colors for walls using various shades of white for trim and ceilings. That has truly changed, although sometimes we’ll specify an accent color and, if our clients will let us, wallpaper on ceilings. The trend for white walls has been strong and for being “color” girls, we have really ...…

However, if we are going to talk about Tybee Island, we absolutely must bring your attention ...…
 
We started the conversation about VRBO, AirBNB and vacation rentals in our last Episode 44. We talked about what “big business” this has become and are very excited about how we are working towards having an impact for owners, managers and the general public. The varied offering of rentals is quite fascinating! You can go down a rabbit hole whe ...…
 
Today we are talking about how the websites AirBnB and VRBO have completely revolutionized the travel industry and put hotels on notice that they need to step up to their competition. We find this phenomenon fascinating not only because we travel a lot but more importantly because we are consistently appalled by the interiors of the spaces bein ...…

The landscape of the interior design business has been altered over the last few years. The days of buying home furnishings through a designer that were considered “trade only”, meaning items could only be purchased from a designer, have changed. Manufacturers almost exclusively sold to designers and brick and mortar furniture stores. There was ...…
 
1. INTRO Two years ago, we realized that we were turning away qualified, legitimate clients because they didn’t fit into our model for an ideal client needing full service design – that was just foolish on our part. We had to find a way to help these potential clients. Thus, our designer for a day program was born. 2. WHAT IS IT? Designer for a ...…
 
1. INTRO Unfortunately Kelly and I were unable to attend the market in High Point this fall. In several years of attending markets, we have only missed one or two.

1. INTRO I’d be surprised to meet someone not familiar with HGTV in some way. HGTV has become quite a force in our American culture kicking off the DIY phenomenon, the urban farmhouse movement with Chip and Joanna Gaines, and the young, colorful, whimsical design aesthetic that HGTV is known for. Honestly, HGTV probably doesn’t have a lot of hi ...…
 
INTRO – We put it out there. Ask us ANY (appropriate) design or non-design related questions: Here’s what you asked: Tonya Hicks: What is the craziest (wildest) thing either of you have done to celebrate a major accomplishment? Heather Reese: How do you decorate between Christmas and Spring? Heather Scruggs: How do you handle differences of opi ...…

INTRO We are in the midst of coaching sessions and a lot of our discussions are centered around the importance of branding. Branding is a way of identifying your business.

1. INTRO We are big advocates for staying ahead of the design curve as it relates to product, our skills as designers and our business acumen as entrepreneurs.

When we design for our clients and commercial projects we source about 85% of products that we purchase wholesale.

1. INTRO Today I’m running solo so I have a guest speaker I’m very excited about. Carrie Peeples is the Chief Organizing officer of NeatSmart.

The home page of her website n ...…
 
We’ve worked hard to have our design projects published nationally and regionally many times over. To us, it’s a stamp of approval from the highest level of our peers – the editors of the magazines we covet. Our first national publication was a 6 page spread in Southern Lady Magazine. We were (and still are) so proud of that feature! Our next f ...…

An estimated 3 million Americans work from home. Many people who work from home claim to be more productive because they're not in a loud environment or distracted by co-workers.

1. INTRO We have always been big sharers of information, life and business lessons, sources, advice, etc. One day when we are tired of designing residential and commercial spaces, you will probably find us on the speaking/coaching circuit or writing a book. We got such great feedback on our last Listener call in episode, we thought we’d do it a ...…
 
1. INTRO A. We have a wonderful client base, many that we have worked with for years, others who we may have done one project for, and some others who have been, let’s say “challenging”. B. We have an excellent qualifying system but every now and then, a crazy, whacko client slips through the cracks. 2. The RED FLAGS A. They’ve worked with mult ...…
