Working with a professional interior designer/decorator has many advantages. Whether you have a house full of quality furnishings and need help pulling together the finishing touches or are completely stuck in overwhelm about getting started, here are my top reasons why you should hire an interior decorator.
WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE AN INTERIOR DECORATOR - REASON 1: We will make sure that you get to the finish line.
A professional designer/decorator can not only help you jump start your project but they can also get you through the messy middle. Many of my clients love the idea of starting a project but once it becomes work, gets messy and inconvenient they tend to lose steam. A professional will walk through that phase with you and keep moving the project forward so that you can enjoy living in your newly transformed space.
WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE AN INTERIOR DECORATOR - REASON 2:
We will help you avoid costly mistakes.
I can't tell you how many times I have walked into a clients home and the furnishings were the wrong scale for the home. A professional designer/decorator will begin by planning your space and then sourcing furniture that fits the scale of your home. Often times, I get called in after a client has walked into a furniture showroom with no measurements, not realizing that because the showroom is so open that it makes furnishings appear a lot smaller in that environment. I have also had clients call me a year after purchasing an "affordable" bonded leather sofa and were distraught that it was flaking everywhere and sticking to the back of their thighs (true story). Even though they thought it was an affordable option, they never imagined that they would have to replace it within a year.
WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE AN INTERIOR DECORATOR - REASON 3:
We are master mixologists.
It's true! We would never think of walking into a showroom and purchasing a 7-piece matching set for a client. After working with a professional designer/decorator, you will have a home that looks curated over time. Your home should have a mix of furniture styles, colors, textures and patterns. It should also have a mix of high and low priced items, well-loved and new, and masterfully mixed metallic finishes.
WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE AN INTERIOR DECORATOR - REASON 4:
We minimize the decision making process.
The truth is, redecorating a home is a lot more complicated than you think! You need the help of a professional designer/decorator who can think up "big picture concepts" and execute even the smallest details. There are literally thousands of choices when it comes to furniture selection, fabrics and finishes. We do all of the legwork so that all you have to do is make approvals (and write checks).
WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE AN INTERIOR DECORATOR - REASON 5:
We'll do the tossing and turning while you sleep like a baby!
My mind renders rooms just like you see on the home makeover shows. It's a gift and a curse. While the rest of the world is counting sheep, I'm tossing and turning over the perfect white paint for a project.
WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE AN INTERIOR DECORATOR - REASON 6:
Decorating is just not your jam.
My clients are executives that kill it in pretty much every area of their life. They are in their zone of genius in the conference room, in a strategy session or presenting to the board of directors. Decorating homes is not in their wheelhouse and they are great delegators, so hiring a professional designer/decorator makes perfect sense.
WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE AN INTERIOR DECORATOR - REASON 7:
You simply don't have the time.
You commute daily to a 9-5 job, have a husband and two children in two different sports. How are you supposed to manage work, family AND the redesign of your home too? The short answer is, you can't. There aren't enough hours in the day - enough said.
While, I will admit that there is a sense of accomplishment that comes with executing a design project yourself, your designer/decorator will need to involve you in the process to successfully create a uniquely-you home, so you will play in a major role in how your home looks.
