Design for Thought

0

Interior designer, decorator, or perhaps therapist?  I would say all of the above.  For those of you that participate in the joy of creating a beautiful space, I’m sure you’ve had those certain days where your emotional expertise goes beyond the general duties of your job.  Part of being an interior designer and starting a project is the programming phase: getting to know your client and their needs.  It’s at that point that we discover that it’s more than picking out the right accessory, it’s about creating something together that can promote a person’s well-being.  Design can be a very personal process!   Whether you’re working in a residential or commercial setting, there are a very specific set of needs and most often you’re catering to the senses: the feeling of well-being you get when you walk into the space, the functional needs that the space will provide to the user, and the tangible elements that the user will encounter.  I have to remind myself, it’s more than paint and furniture, it is interior therapy.

I find that my personal design style is always changing to some degree, but I would have to say that I am a Country girl at heart.  I love the comfort, coziness, and relaxed feel that it embodies.  I do love to add a bit of Modern elements into the mix to make it more current.
