IMG_6905In our last blog, we discussed how a local interior design firm can help those who are moving to Florida or the Bahamas make the most of their new living space. A part of that blog dealing with the amount of stuff that people bring with them to their new home inspired us to think about what interior designers have to work with, and, honestly, work around.

Sometimes A Blank Slate Can Be Easier

Stepping into an empty room before a customer moves their material possessions in can certainly make things easier. At that point, all we have to worry about is the space. If we’re allowed to choose everything, including paint and fixtures, rooms can flow one into the next. It’s certainly the simplest way to go if you have full faith in your interior design firm.

Other Times, an Anchor Piece Can Be The Catalyst

Sometimes people have one or two pieces that they’d like to have in the room no matter what. Often these are antiques or inherited items. Perhaps it’s the steamer chest that Grandma brought over from the old country; other times it’s a piece of furniture that the client made themselves. When we’re presented with this anchor piece, it can influence the design of the rest of the room, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Getting To Know You

Of course, there’s always the personality of the client that has to be taken into consideration, as well as how much they want Chelsea 2to reference their origins. A client from Texas is different from one from California, and that person is more than likely very different from one moving from North Dakota. We talk extensively with our clients in order to figure out the perfect style that matches their personalities as well as the local culture.
