As we begin to say goodbye to 2016 and usher in 2017, some of us will make the traditional New Year's resolution of improving ourselves, our careers, our relationships, and for some of us; our homes.
If you are planning on a major renovation or decorating project this year, but not currently writing an interior design blog about your knack for decorating, or answering the questions on the Houzz design dilemmas discussion board, you probably will need my help or the help from a professional interior designer in your area.
If decorating or designing your home is not in your gene pool, ( yes, the people with a flair for decorating do not need my help) why not seek help from a professional?
If you are going to make any investments this coming year on improving your home, office, retail store, restaurant, adjusting to a health issue, adding elderly parents, or elderly children with their children, or upgrading your lifestyle because you have moved on from college dorm decor look, and have no clue where to begin, you need a designer.
But ask yourself a few questions first before picking up the phone and hiring a designer or decorator:
Once you have decided to begin a new project in 2017, and you have a clear vision of your wants and needs for this project, I want you to do your homework on the criteria for working with a designer or decorator.
As with any professional in any field; you are going to pay for the expertise based on education, experience, reputation, and their body of work.
Great personalities are an added plus.
Happy New Year!!
