meet the team

With a passion for telling YOUR story, our diverse team of creatives work very hard to produce The Chaise Lounge each week.  We’d love to introduce ourselves…

Your Show Host

NICK MAY

Show Host

Meet Nick May, your host. He is not an interior designer, and doesn’t claim to be, but Nick has been in and around businesses and interior spaces for over 20 years. 

Nick owns a painting business called Walls by Design in Denver, CO, where he works directly with designers everyday.  When he is not working on his own businesses, he is busy with his wife, Katherine, and his two sons, Gavin and Tyler, either camping, playing soccer, walking the dogs, or out on a family adventure.

Nick admits he may not have all the answers for design, but his successes as a trail-blazing entrepreneur have taught him the skills needed to grow a business: building systems, marketing, managing employees, and conducting sales. That is why he started The Chaise Lounge Podcast – to help you grow YOUR interior design business.  

BECCA BLAUSTEIN

Director of Communications

Here in The Lounge, Becca is in charge of ‘all things podcast’ from management, marketing, branding, graphic design, social media, event planning all the way to managing our interns. Her background is in art and design but that didn’t stop her from diving headfirst into the unfamiliar worlds of business, marketing, interiors, and podcasting. Growing up in a small, coastal New England town, Becca has now been in Denver for five years and doesn’t plan to leave the mountains and sunshine anytime soon! On the weekends you can catch Becca hiking, skiing, dreaming about the beach or enjoying the local food, art, and shopping. If you have any questions about the show, Becca is your girl.

CHANDLER HALLMARK

Web Developer

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, Chandler moved to Denver at the beginning of 2018. She majored in public relations at The University of Tennessee but soon quickly took interest in web developing. She’s been around computers and websites from an early age, thanks to her father, who became a web developer in the mid-90s. Chandler has a passion for traveling and she has even backpacked through Mexico and Europe. In between learning all things tech, you can find Chandler exploring her new home and the mountains. Here at The Chaise Lounge Podcast Chandler’s got a solution for all of our web and tech questions.
