#48: Anna-Carin McNamara – Creating a Harmonious Living and Working Environment, Productivity and Dreaming – Your Dream Life Podcast

This episode, Kristina took a little time to chat with her dear friend Anna-Carin McNamara, founder of Anna-Carin Design Studio and Author of Make a Home to Love – How to Bring Order and Beauty into Your Home the Scandinavian Way.

Born in Sweden, Anna-Carin is a wonderful interior designer, such an inspiration and is also a great support to Kristina on a daily basis. In this episode, she shares her passion for creating beautiful spaces and her wisdom on creating a beautiful home environment that can help us to not only be more productive, but also express our identity and bring us joy. And with many of us spending more and more time in our homes this year, the idea of creating living spaces we love is even more important than ever.

Anna-Carin believes strongly in making the most of the space that you have now, rather than waiting for that perfect space in the future. And in this wonderful episode she shares how there is always something you can do to create that special sanctuary at home.
