Seriously - you should listen

I only just discovered this charming and amazing podcast, and it has gotten me through the pandemic so far. I binge-listen when I cook, clean, run, and walk the dogs. I’m American, but a complete Anglophile and lover of design, so listening to these two gals is a complete joy. Their combination of knowledge and humor is just what I need right now, and I like that they’re both opinionated yet self-deprecating, like “nothing is really that precious yet here are my very definite opinions.” I also like that they have different design sensibilities from each other, which suggests there’s more than one way to be stylish.

Best podcast ever!!!!

I just finished listening to this podcast AGAIN while redoing my kitchen in quarantine. It has made this crazy time so much more fun. Kate and Sophie are full of knowledge and keep me laughing and my family full of positivity in these uncertain times. We have a lot of thinking about interior design together. Thank you Sophie and Kate!

Pure Joy

I’m with Sophie and Kate, nothing Marie Kondo has to say sparks joy for me. But this podcast certainly does. It’s like chatting with old friends, and I can’t get enough of it.(Don’t hate me though ladies, I do have gray walls with white trim...but I love them).

Covid 19 therapy in a podcast

I only just recently discovered The Great Indoors and I feel like I should be paying Kate and Sophie. Not for interior design advice—though that is worth a lot—but because they are keeping my spirits up during this most bizarre slice of history. The pair are delightful, and their insights are worth their weight in gold.... ceilings. I lift my glass to these charming women and feel like I’ve made two new friends!

Delightful and Informative

These completely charming women know how to keep design approachable while still offering top-notch insight that’s so helpful! The topics they cover are timely, fun, and applicable to any home or budget. And honestly, I love how they make you feel like you’re part of their conversation...or at least like a fly on the wall listening to two (very stylish) friends.

My New Obsession

From the very first episode of the Great Indoors I was hooked! I binge-listened to all 5 seasons in the last 2 weeks. I would start every day by getting ready listening to Sophie (an interior stylist) and Kate (a self-described “putter” of things). I love, love, love that they offer two perspectives on various areas of design. It has opened my eyes to the fact that interior design is so much more than simple black letter rules (which I, someone who is a bit over the top, always found a bit frustrating), but is rather adapting general guidelines to fit the feel and personality of people that live in the home. I cannot get enough of these two ladies! They are a wealth of knowledge and laughs and, quite frankly, now that I have finished all the seasons, I am a bit lost! I can’t wait for the new season and can someone PLEASE get Kate a jingle for her stats???!

My favorite design listen

After binge watching The Great Interior Design Challenge (a perfect pastime while holding my sleeping baby), I followed Sophie to her new podcast and fell instantly in love with this show! Kate + Sophie = joyful design magic ✨Every episode has me laughing with their silly banter, and feeling so inspired and delighted with all of the possibilities for my home and studio. Their regular dose of interior design ideas and trends keeps me continuously brainstorming and plotting my next projects. I look forward to it every week. Thank you, ladies!P.S. Loving the interviews these recent seasons and photo peeks of their abodes! P.P.S. Your British accents are an added bonus to my American ears :)

An absolute delight!

These two women are just about the best thing ever. They’re hilarious, and I love hearing about all the things they’re up to. The design crimes are a hoot, but my favorite things are Sophie’s laugh and the joyous relationship these two have. I would love to be on the chintz sofa with them while they giggle about feature walls and tease each other about their individual style. Love it. Highly recommend.

Happy Birthday!

So many highs! But please include a clip of that time (recently, not sure which episode) one of you said a word in a funny way and then you’re just cutting up. Both of y’all laughing was my favorite thing ever :)

Making interior design accessible and achievable

I love everything about this podcast: Sophie and Kate's friendship, their discussions when they disagree, their relaxed confidence — and especially their tips that make interior design, an intimidating topic for me, more accessible and achievable for my own life. My husband and I bought our first home last fall, a good ol' fixer upper, and Sophie and Kate have given me the confidence to try out my own ideas. "No" to endlessly copying Pinterest and Instagram! "Yes" to discovering my own style! (Also, Sophie? I love your laugh. It's beautiful. Ignore the haters.)
