Talking Design – Rebecca Plumb

Sacramento interior designer Rebecca Plumb recently teamed up with a Long Beach designer friend to launch a podcast called Hot Young Designers Club. “There’s definitely some irony” to the name, says Plumb, principal of the firm Studio Plumb. She and co-host Shaun Crha of Wrensted Interiors started the podcast as an extension of the IRL conversations they were already having about issues in their industry. While geared toward other design professionals, the weekly pod offers would-be design clients an illuminating look at the business side of making houses beautiful. “Not everybody understands the value of interior design and why it costs so much,” says Plumb, who hopes, among other things, to use the podcast to promote diversity. “There’s a lot of sameness in the design industry,” she notes. “We want to bring different perspectives and points of view.”
