Today I had the pleasure of chatting with Hilary Prall. Hilary is an interior designer and blogger who loves to thrift and upcycle. Hilary worked retail for years but eventually needed a change. She turned to design and blogging and when that took off, she just kept going! Hilary keeps her content authentic and personable and is full of creative ideas.
