Ivy Podcast Guest: Leyla Jaworski of Design Shop Interiors

Ivy Co-Founders, Alexandra Schinasi and Lee A. Rotenberg, speak to Ivy Designer Leyla Jaworski of Design Shop Interiors. Listen to our entire podcast series on iTunes here.

In 2010, after 12 years in New York, Leyla moved back to her hometown in Sacramento, CA with her New Yorker husband (Scott), a boxer dog (Tank) in tow, and baby (Jake) on the way. Leyla is a self-taught designer who after ‘designing on the side for over 10 years’, formally launched Design Shop Interiors in 2014 – from her kitchen table. In less than 5 years, DSI has quickly grown to a team of 10 with a waiting list of clients. She knows her way around a construction site and renovating homes is one of her favorite things in life (besides of the 3 beings listed above). You can also count on her to make you laugh and give you her unfiltered, 100% honest opinion.

In this podcast, you’ll learn:

  • Leyla’s “ah-ha!” moment in making her interior design business successful
  • Leyla’s business model structure and how it works towards her bottom line
  • How Leyla grew her team to 10 employees in such a short time
  • How Leyla handles unhappy clients
