Interior design is an artistic expression of who you are; it is one of the most accessible ways of heightening your everyday quality of life. It’s not a checklist of steps to be taken, but rather a unique blend of creativity and psychology that transforms your environment into a balanced, aesthetically pleasing, and functional haven. Our intent is to create a space that feels like coming home to the people you love, or like celebrating life’s special moments.
Knowledge is Power
The value of hiring us comes from the years of knowledge and dedication to our craft. For example, you can set aside a couple of hours to cook an elaborate and fabulous dinner at home, but the same dish prepared by a culinary expert will likely include a blend of rich flavors and spices that can only be achieved with years of practice–in half the time. Plus, it’s probably arranged in a pretty aesthetically pleasing manner too. Similarly, when you allow a designer to transform your space, there is an unparalleled richness in color, texture, and emotion that cannot be achieved without the patience, care, and years of experience we bring to the table. A design decision, such as paint color, that may leave you contemplating for hours can be a split-second decision for a designer with a trained eye.
This isn’t to say good design doesn’t take time, because it does. However, it comes more readily and naturally to a designer that has dedicated their life to perfecting their craft. Unless you personally custom built your home, it wasn’t designed with the intention of serving your life and your needs specifically. We remedy this by creating beautiful and functional solutions that make a real impact in your everyday life and routine.
Experts in Emotion
For the most part, interior design is about how you want to feel at home. Art affects mood, like when you hear that song that makes you want to dance in your car. The current design of your home–from the colors, to the ratio of natural light to artificial light, and the layout of your furniture—has the same power to affect your mood as music does. We can go years without ever realizing that the current unintentional design of our home is mentally draining. Your home should always feel like your escape at the end of a long day, like a song that makes you want to dance (not cry).
Time and Money
Aside from the emotional aspect, hiring a designer truly does help save you time and money. Whatever your vision is for your home, we have the expertise required to effectively manifest that vision.
Efficient use of your budget can make or break your project, and if you don’t have the experience, you typically don’t know how much money to allocate where. Rather than making costly errors on your own–such as tearing down walls and finding shoddy electrical that you don’t know how to tackle, or painting your cabinets with the wrong stain (effectively ruining them, and then having to order new cabinets anyway)–you can hire a designer with the confidence that it will be done right the first time. Knowing the best, most cost-effective route around unforeseen issues with your home is part of our job.
Increased Value of your Home
If nothing else, sell your home for what it’s worth! When a designer makes the necessary upgrades to your home, the money you spend goes straight into the value of your home, giving you the potential to sell for much more than you originally could have.
Whether you plan to stay forever, or plan to sell in the next couple of years, interior design adds immeasurable value to your life and home. Allowing us to manifest your vision is a worthy investment that, quite literally, has the power to change the way you live.
