We recently traveled to High Point, North Carolina for their Spring Market and had the chance to sit down with some of our favorite tastemakers. This week we’re sharing our interview with the Editor in Chief of Domino Magazine, Jessica Romm Perez. To say she’s worked at some of our favorite magazines — Martha Stewart, Food & Wine, and Elle Decor just to name a few — so we loved chatting with her about what trends she’s seeing at market, her recent home renovation, and how her team dreams up such a gorgeous issue! Of course we couldn’t end the episode without her answering your decorating questions!

Our guest this week has seriously enviable style that blends vibrant colors with doses of white and black. We love the way she uses vintage pieces but creates rooms that feel totally fresh and modern. Gen Sohr is one half of the husband and wife team at Pencil and Paper Company, and we had to pick her brain about decorating with kids, color, pattern, thrift shopping, and how she and Ben manage to do it all, and together no less!
