The Do’s and Dont’s of Home Renovation with Gabriella Milgrom

This episode is an eye-opening one, and an important topic, as I’m joined by home renovation expert Gabriella Milgrom to discuss the do’s and don’t’s of home renovation! 

Gabriella is an accredited interior designer and professional project manager who’s been in the design and construction industry for nearly 15 years, designing multi-million dollar renovation projects, commercial spaces and hospitals. She teaches women how to create their dream home the right way from the start, by combining the key design drivers and desires with the needed management tactics to build the home they’ve always dreamed about. Best of all, she shows others how to do this without losing time, money, and their sanity! 

I know many of you have gone through renovations or are about to and it can be a really stressful time. Gabriella is a wealth of information, and you are not going to want to miss this conversation I had with her if a renovation project is on the horizon for you. Please note that you’ll hear Gabriella mention her challenge that was set to run this month, but it will now be happing in January, 2024, and you can get on the waitlist now at!
