Design is not easy, let’s get that out of the way. You have contacted an interior designer just for that simple reason, design is not easy for you. You are overwhelmed, you can’t envision the space and you have just spent countless hours on Pinterest. Gawd if you could only get some of those lost hours back ( can I be sued for bashing them a bit?? :)…
I can honestly say the very first thing my client wants to show me is all their ideas they have pinned from Pinterest. Without hesitation I can say that 70% of those pins don’t even flow together because you see something and you say, I love that, then you see something else and you love that too and it goes on and on…Stop that cycle my dear and let me help you.
Here is what to do. Sure pop on Pinterest get a few ideas but for God’s sake don’t lose your life on there, you don’t have enough time in the day as it is, so don’t waste it.
Here’s what to do ! Create a vision board.
Now this is where you get your creative juices flowing, day dream a bit, think about what you like and envision it. You know what you like and what you don’t like. Go buy a few interior designer Mags, flip through them cut out some pictures. I love magazines there is nothing like that feel of flipping through pages and day dreaming and thinking the impossible is possible. Throw those mag clips in a folder or even if you are a DIYer, make a real picture like this one.
Go to the fabric store, see what you like for texture and feel, cuts some samples off or maybe be on the safe side and purchase a little of that luxurious fabric you love.
Now get going and create that vision you have for your space, for your family and where you spend most of the quality time of your life.
Have that vision board ready, you have no idea how appreciative I am when that is presented to me vs a jumble of pins from Pinterest.
You and I will now spend a lot of time discussing that vision board, the spark will be lit and you and I will hit the ground running.
My passion will now take over and I will create a unique design from your vision. I promise.. you’re gonna love the end result.
