Interior designers can be such snobs. Not all of them (or us…), of course, but there are certainly those out there that contend that there is no way a space can be stunning unless it has this or does not have that.
Maybe it’s my middle America farm-town roots that helps me see the beauty in simplicity. Maybe it’s the fact that I also have to live within my means (or below if I really want to be responsible) that keeps my design boundaries within financial reach for just about everybody. But I just really believe a room can be stylish, comfortable, and reasonable.
Using a designer is a gamble, I’ll give you that. You give up just a little bit of your control and put it in my hands to form and shape a space that needs to be uniquely yours…one that reflects your style, lifestyle, family and usage. That’s why I take my job seriously and don’t try to adhere to a magazine-style interior. If you like a ceiling fan in your room, you’ll have a ceiling fan. I couldn’t live without mine. I happen to really like my wood slatted blinds and they serve a real function and no one is going to tell me that I need three layers on my windows, so I’m not going to insist that you do too. As a matter of fact, half of my house has no window coverings and that’s OK.
In a nutshell, my philosophy is that your home is YOURS and it can be unique, beautiful and affordable. I would love to help you achieve your goals for your decorating project.
