The Internet is truly an amazing leap forward in the democratization of information. Virtually anything you want to learn about is at your fingertips. Creative people have many avenues available to them through which they can share their work, and they make it look so easy! But, as we all know, appearances can be deceiving, and “DIY” can all too quickly turn into “OMG what did I get myself into?” Interior design in particular is one area where the beautiful results mask some wickedly detailed effort.
Cruising the internet searching for interior design ideas is a great place to start. The good news is there are thousands of ideas out there! The bad news is…there are thousands of ideas out there. A beautiful room design is the culmination of many ideas, decisions, and subtle layers – for example, colors, styles, fabrics, wall coverings and/or finishes, trim, flooring, and much more – that are brought together in a way that makes sense for your needs and the space you are working with. Multiply that by the number of rooms in your home and it’s easy to see how this can spiral out of control. An experienced, professional interior designer will help translate your ideas into a cohesive overall layout that fits your personality and needs.
The greatest value that an experienced interior designer offers you is peace of mind. They do the worrying for you! A professional interior designer will talk with you to understand your vision, give you their honest thoughts on how to bring your vision to reality, then they do the work and make it happen.
There are many more benefits to hiring an interior designer – see the “Interior Design” page of my web site for more information.
