Here are our choices for the top 10 Interior Design Podcasts

2. Style Matters

Style Matters is a great interior design podcast with two charming co-hosts, Karen June Grant and Zandra Zuraw. These two specialize in helping people transform interior spaces like living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens into personal extensions of someone’s personality.

The podcast has been running since 2014. Over the years, the two hosts have brought in dozens of great artists, designers, stylists, and cultural tastemakers. Whether you need new ideas for that pitch meeting or just want to renovate your home, this podcast is worth a listen. 

3. The Chaise Lounge

Do you consider yourself an “all business” person? In that case, you’ll love The Chaise Lounge. After all, this is an entire podcast devoted to the business of interior design!

This podcast will do things like deep dives into the aesthetics of famous designers, but it also offers plenty of great advice about improving an existing interior design business. So while we think all designers will really dig this podcast, it is particularly good for interior designers who are looking for ways to grow their careers with the help of podcast host Nick May.

4. The Young Architect

Not that long ago, podcast host Michael Riscica launched The Young Architect to help struggling students pass their architect exams. Now, as a more established professional, he uses the podcast as a platform to interview industry professionals about their craft.

For professional interior designers, this podcast is great because the interviews usually dive into what the professional architects did to achieve success and build their brand. Instead of reinventing the wheel, young professionals can simply listen to this podcast and get inspiration for what steps they should take next.

5. The Style Files

Some of our favorite interior design podcasts are basically extensions of an existing brand. For example, we already loved Paloma Contreras’ La Dolce Vita blog. So when she launched The Style Files podcast, we knew it was going to be a winner.

In this podcast, she interviews awesome designers such as Bunny Williams and Nick Olsen. Contreras is funny and engaging as a host, and her guests offer a continuous stream of amazing industry advice that every designer should write down.

6. A Well-Designed Business

Sometimes, the most difficult part of running an interior design business is the business aspect. Even if you’re the most talented designer on the planet, that doesn’t mean you’re going to instantly know how to build a company and regularly generate profit.

That’s where A Well-Designed Business comes in. In this podcast, host Luann Nigara, (The G.O.A.T.) interviews professionals and offers business advice throughout each week. 

If you’d like to learn important skills, including how to better communicate with clients, then you need to listen to this podcast each week.

7. How To Decorate

How To Decorate is a podcast that does exactly what it says on the can. Whether you’re a professional designer or a flustered homeowner, this podcast focuses on helping you decorate in innovative and dynamic new ways.

Podcast topics are often small and intimate, including how to pick the right paint color for a room and how to make areas like dining rooms really pop. If nothing else, this podcast will serve as a powerful source of inspiration for you to go out and design as you have never designed before!

8. The Design You Podcast

In terms of podcast names, we love the clever titling of the Design You Podcast. The name is a play on words because even as it focuses on improving your design skills, this podcast also helps improve you as both a designer and a person.

For example, any given episode may combine advice about gaining clients with advice about achieving a healthier lifestyle. And you may even learn how to make social media work for you instead of having it simply drain your time and your sanity week after week.

9. The Great Indoors

The general mission of The Great Indoors podcast is that hosts Sophie Robinson and Kate Watson Smyth walk you through how to turn a house into a home. And as the name of the podcast implies, they help listeners learn how to make the interior of their homes just as captivating and magnificent as anything you could find in the great outdoors.

Part of the reason this interior design podcast resonates so much with us is that the COVID-19 pandemic forced most of us to stay in our homes for far longer than we normally would. If that isolation made you dream of renovating your home into something astonishing, this podcast can help you turn that dream into a reality.

10. Monocle On Design

We love Monocle On Design in part because it’s a “jack of all trades” podcast. Sure, design may be the primary focus. But in any given episode, you’re just as likely to learn about fashion or architecture as you are to learn about furniture and decoration.

And the best episodes of this podcast help designers learn how everything is connected. Our home architecture, our living rooms, our closets…our entire aesthetic tells the world who we really are. And this podcast helps anyone who is brave enough to realize they need to learn a little more about every aspect of design.

11. At Home With Lauren Keenan

“The home of your dreams” is a phrase that gets tossed around quite a bit. But how do we actually come up with the dream homes in our minds? Better yet, what can we do to make our actual homes as fabulous as the ones hidden inside our brains?

These are the questions that At Home With Lauren Keenan sets out to answer. In this podcast, Keenan speaks to interior design experts, retail gurus, and artists to discover what the latest trends are. So whether you want to renovate a space or just want to stay on top of these emerging trends, this podcast is for you.
