The final solution of any Interior should be tailored to so that it’s personal to you. It should be unique and it should tell a very interesting story.
How to go about this then? Well, there are a number of ways to tackle this objective. Luckily they all have a common denominator, and so if we can understand what that is we have a very good start point, and it is this. I believe that it is the experiences from our past and our interests that carry us into the future that create a rich tapestry of our lives. So if we work with this we have a very clear brief:
- reflect the past to capture treasured memories and,
- inspire with areas of interest to take forward into the future energetically.You will know what these are for you and your family. Make it visual. Celebrate it and you will see a rich and interesting tapestry of your lives unfold.
This is the part of my job that I love the most, and it’s probably also one of the key reasons why I do what I do. When entrusted with this aspect of the job I get a lot of pleasure out of knowing that an interior is a good reflection of it’s inhabitants personalities, their shared history and their interests – a place that they will be inspired in at the beginning and the end of each day because they have the right visual cues.
The big question: Do you want to live in a house that your designer loves and would choose, or do you want to live in a house that you love which is designed? Some designers are very good at rolling out their house style, but struggle with portraying the individual character of its inhabitants. If making your space your own is what you have in mind, make sure the designer you have chosen gets you. Once you have established this make sure it is a key aspect of the brief. You won’t regret your decision.
