Are you always trying to figure out your perfect signature style? Are you constantly confused as to what fits you most and what looks best in your home? I just purchased a home and have been in the process of planning what I want the interiors to look like. You would think as an Interior Designer the process of picking out what I want would be easy but there are so many things to consider before going out and just purchasing an item. Just like you think about the “look” you want to portray when selecting an outfit to wear the same goes for your own home. Many people buy things and then try to find a place for them and buying what you love is a good thing but it’s always best to circle back to the original design and plan of your home before you buy on impulse.
You see in the process of planning the interiors of your home you have to look inside “you” and those living in the home and discover what you love most. It’s not just about things it’s about creating an environment that supports your deepest desires. For example, when I started thinking about what I want the family room to look like in my house I asked myself many questions to get at the root of what I desired most in my home. I discovered that faith, comfort, family and conversation where the core ideas to making that particular room the environment I craved to be in. Those ideas begin the framework for every decision I will make from the floors, walls, fabrics, etc.
Interior Designers are here to help walk you through this process, sort through the unknowns and keep you on course. I thought it would be interesting to think about what you like and start the conversation with your designer and yourself to begin to understand what you are really seeking when designing your home.
