Everyone has a different idea of what they want, but often it's a challenge pulling all those elements and ideas into a unified space. Designers are trained to look at spaces differently, seeing the possibilities and overcoming challenges.
Contrary to what many people may believe, consulting with a Designer generally saves money by preventing costly (and common) mistakes....especially when renovating or building a new home.
Different members of the household frequently have conflicting ideas about style, taste, budget, and function. Often, "compromise" results in less than pleasing combinations no one is very happy with. A Designer will help coordinate all these ideas into a cohesive space everyone can enjoy.
Sometimes, clients are concerned the Designer is going to come in and immediately want to replace everything. A "clean slate" approach has its applications, but generally doesn't result in a space that reflects the personality of its inhabitants. While a Designer can expose you to a wide variety of different possibilities, custom options, exclusive brands, and trade secrets, perhaps the most enjoyable part of the process is the cultivation of your style.
Whether you need someone to take the reins or prefer to be very involved with every part of the process, I am pleased to offer personalized service to my clients!
