From finding interesting properties to invest in and develop to managing concept to creation down to every last detail including furniture and then sales - I wanted to know how these talented renaissance women worked.

We sat down to chat about how they run their business, the types of projects they work on, how they got started and the details of their day-to-day workflow of their projects.
