After working for other designers and now for myself as one, I have learned a lot about what makes the design process either miserable or efficient and inspiring. Designing a personal residence is a team effort between you and our design team, and there is a wonderful balance
between high design and personal expression that can be created by this collaboration.
The interior designer you hire, should work for, and with you, never dictating that you simply MUST trash that desk from your late grandfather, because it’s an “eyesore.”
The role of the client in the interior design process is just as important as the role of the designer. Often times, it is perceived that designer will totally lead the process, because we have all the answers. That is not so. Interior Designer's need feedback. Create a Pinterest board, save an idea book in Houzz, even catch inspirational moments with your iPhone. What’s your style? Favorite Color?Daily Routine? Budget? Tell us all of your interior design hopes and dreams, and don’t hold back.
