Interior Design is often like storytelling. Your home should be a reflection of who you and your family or the other residents truly are.
The colors we use, the functional elements we incorporate, the styles we portray, and the little moments we create throughout the room with smaller decorative elements we pair together.
The family of fifteen may need more storage and functionality, a warm yet calming atmosphere, kid friendly decor selections, with a more rustic style because they love their vacations in wyoming, and plenty of space to spend family time.
The newlywed couple may want more open space to entertain but not too much actual square footage, a cooler atmosphere, dog friendly decor to fit their lifestyle with their new puppy, and a modern and contemporary style like the hotel they stayed in for their honeymoon.
And it varies so much case by case. Always. Everyones wants, needs, styles, lives, they are all different.
We choose art that moves up, decor that’s meaningful to us, and paired with photographs of us and our loved ones throughout our space from years past and present. Books that we have read, that we have fallen in love with, line the bookshelves. Like these stories we have read, our homes are their own stories.
And that’s the best thing about being a designer, getting to know and tell peoples stories.
