A sneaky peak into our world of design & decoration
Almost every week a client will ask what it’s really like to be an interior designer.
Where do we get our inspiration from? How do we decide which colours to use? What do we love most about our job? Which aspects are most ‘challenging’?
Well, in our new weekly blog, we hope to give you all the answers. It’s our chance to tell you about the highs of being an interior designer – for me that’s probably walking a client through their finished home and the reaction when they love what we’ve created for them. And the lows? Well, that has to be when a delivery fails to show up and I’m frantically phoning our supplier to track it down. I must have notched up more than a few grey hairs over furnishings that have been ‘lost in transit’!
But aside from a few supply ‘issues’ I absolutely love my job. We get to meet some fabulous people and creating a home centred on their lifestyle is exciting and rewarding – I really feel we are making a difference to their lives. And of course, there’s the sheer variety. One day I might be drawing sketches in a penthouse looking out over the Thames, the next I might be in an artisan’s workshop in Paris, discussing the commissioning of a piece of bespoke furniture. A desk job this isn’t.
So welcome! We’ll be sharing all this with you – from design tips and interior design trends to a sneak peak at our favourite products. And if you have a question for us, please do feel free to comment below and we’ll do our best to reply. Enjoy!
