Hey and welcome to the fourth episode of the ‘I Want My Life Back Project’ podcast!


In this episode, I interview Diana Greenhalgh from My Bespoke Room.

My Bespoke Room is an online interior design service which makes the process of designing a beautiful home affordable.

Di and Laura met while working at L’Oreal and founded the company while on maternity leave as they were new homeowners and were frustrated that they couldn’t find a budget-friendly way to make their homes beautiful.

Within 3 years of founding the company, they had won awards and were ranked in the top 10 interior designers in the UK.

Here are some of the highlights of the episode:

  • Creating a business that solves a problem
  • Doing free case studies to test your idea
  • Taking a sabbatical to launch your business
  • What life looks like when launching a business with young children
  • Why it’s important not to underestimate what you already know
  • Why you shouldn’t be afraid to try
