MFCH Table Talks: Serena Crawford

by ally redmond

Today, as part of the MFCH Table Talk series, I am excited to offer you a sneak peek into a conversation with my friend and talented interior designer, Serena Crawford. Serena joined me for a live Instagram video, and you can now listen to our conversation via my Podcast.

An impressive trifecta of creative skills, Serena designs, builds and decorates houses – and their gardens – around the world. She also offers independent consultation for luxury boutique hotels and leads safari camps in her native South Africa. Her work has been featured in Architectural Digest, VOGUE Living Australia and Conde Nast Traveller, to name just a few.

I have long enjoyed Serena’s instagram account.  Her passion for life, and her ability to find beauty all around her is something that resonates clearly with me.

I sat down with Serena for a live instagram video recently, and we have saved this podcast audio from our chat for you to listen to again.

In this episode, you’ll hear us talk about our love of everyday beauty, the need to declutter our lives, ways to create a welcoming home for family and friends and how our children have learned from us (and vice-versa!). Don’t miss her tips and words of wisdom!

I like S.C. even she has a bit an unusual charakter …I mean she is not a 08/15 person. Every room in her house as well her clothing , shows an exceptional taste . Thank you Sharon for these many interesting questions but did she canceled her instagram account? When I click on your link above it shows “this side i not available”.
