Something we see this season that we hadn’t before is the older Gaines daughter, Ella, learning some tricks of the trade from her mom. Joanna says Ella is interested in design, so she’s letting her shadow her as she stages the homes.
It’s so sweet to watch—and I’m taking notes right along with Ella. Joanna tells her she chose wood accents to coordinate with wooden ceiling beams, recommends putting white bowls against wood shelves so they “pop,” and shows her how to layer pillows just right.
Sometimes, it’s nice feeling like a guru in something. But if we keep all our best intel to ourselves, they’ll eventually be lost. Whether it’s a decorating tip, a tasty recipe, a parenting hack, or a work strategy, it’s so personally rewarding to pass your best ones to a friend, a child, a neighbor, or a newbie coworker.
