Designer Meridith Baer loved making personal spaces more beautiful in childhood, years before a Hollywood career led her to hand-forging the art and business of home staging. Today the lifelong creative leads a high-profile design business, staging A-list homes, designing luxe interior spaces and supporting other artists—while always remembering her roots.

Meridith Baer joins the podcast to talk about the power of home—as well as growing up on the grounds of San Quentin as the warden’s daughter, which famed producer is responsible for her first Hollywood break and discusses her next big chapter.

“I feel very satisfied that I’ve got to spend my time during the last 25 years doing what I really love,” says Meridith Baer, “not what I was supposed to do.”
