To kick off this brand-new season of the podcast, I’m excited to bring you my conversation with Janet Parrella-Van Den Berg, as we talk design and she shares what you will find in her incredible book that is just launching, White and Faded: Restoring Beauty in Your Home and Life!
Born and raised in Holland, Janet Parrella-Van Den Berg has been painting antiques white long before it became popular. With her husband Dino, she is the creative powerhouse behind UK-based shop and lifestyle brands White & Faded and Collection Designed by Janet. With a focus on restoring old homes and furniture, they bring new life to everything they do while introducing their clients and fans to stylish, sustainable living. Janet also hosts a digital academy where she teaches interactive online courses. She lives in Canterbury, England.
I hope you enjoy this episode with Janet, I highly recommend her new book, as not only is it a wonderful metaphor for life in general, but it provides wonderful messaging on every page!
