Inside Design with Kandrac & Kole is hosted by two nationally published Atlanta Interior Designers, Joann Kandrac and Kelly Kole. These energetic women are also world travelers, charity givers and bloggers with a wealth of information to share and stories to tell about the interior design world. Join them every week for a lively conversation about the latest trends, travels to industry events, current design projects (the good, the bad and the ugly), do’s and don’ts, product recommendations and more. Just a warning - this is going to be fun and not too serious! After all, they do still have an interior design business running at full speed.
