INTERIOR MOTIVES: Kristell Interiors, LLC of Delaware

Here we are folks! Finally! The first ever 'INTERIOR MOTIVES'! I've been wanting to launch this feature of The American Man$ion after a pretty successful ADDRESSING THE AGENT launch back in October. I mean, a great deal of my blog is about interior design, so it was only right to begin featuring some incredible designers. So some time ago, I started following a bright young interior designer on Instagram. Her stories impressed me! I saw that she loved what she does and takes it very seriously. She had a fresh sense of style, a style that stood out and that is hard to do on social media at times because so much of it is gloss. Of course I contacted her and asked if she'd like to lead the charge for my new 'INTERIOR MOTIVES' features. And she gratefully agreed. It's been a few weeks in the making but without further delay, please enjoy this casual Q&A-style interview with Chalice K. Johnson, Founder and Principal Designer of Kristell Interiors, LLC!

Nearly five years later, Florida's jewel property was sold for a "modest" $42,500,000-a steal considering, it was at one time being offered for $117,000,000 more than what it sold for!
