In this week's episode, we're joined by Jeran McConnal; a modern maker and the creator of 'Oleander and Palm'. Her focus is Simple California Living, designing and making livable spaces that incorporate vintage finds, handmade pieces and global inspiration. She has worked collaboratively with great brands like The Land of Nod and West Elm and her home has been featured on Design Sponge and Houzz.

Her creativity and industriousness were honed through years of living in third world countries that challenged her to find novel solutions for creating livable spaces. A former educator and mother of three, Jeran has settled in sunny Bakersfield, California where her skills and styles are evolving in exciting new ways!
