3 Things Most People Don’t Know about Working with an Interior Designer


What comes to mind when you think of working with an interior designer, and the work they do?

Many people envision picking colors, carpet, tile, lighting, furnishings, fabric, artwork, and accessories. All of this is true, but these things are just the icing on the cake!

Here are 3 much more significant roles we play in each project that we take on…


1. Specialized Planning & Conceptualization of the Space

Much thought goes into planning, conceptualizing, and selecting before those decorative features are selected.

No matter whether the project is new construction, renovation, or a home refresh, we combine our understanding of your lifestyle, preferences, and design goals with our depth of knowledge to determine what selections will be right for you and your home.

For example, before we select a light fixture, we may begin by reviewing or creating lighting plans. Next, we consider what size, scale, finish, and style of light will be appropriate for your home. This “conceptualization” fine tunes what we will be looking for in a selection.


2. Experienced Project Management from Start to Finish

We lead clients through the design process to clarify the desired outcome before selections begin.

We work together with your architect, contractor, and other build partners, to create the beautiful details that will make your design come to life. 

We bring our depth of experience to help you avoid expensive mistakes and get the most bang for your buck!


3. Guidance in Smart Investments for the Long-Term

Working with a designer who “gets you” can save you money and time in the long run. Our understanding of classic design vs. trend-following can help you to make decisions that you will be happy with for years to come.

Our depth of knowledge about materials and furnishings that will last can lengthen the lifespan of your selections.

And doing things right the first time avoids costly expenditures when things didn’t turn out like you hoped they would!


Most of all, working with an interior designer can help you to achieve the home design that suits you, your home, and your style. Good selections are based on a strong foundation of expertise, research, and a clear understanding of your project goals and preferences.

We are passionate about using our knowledge and experience to lead our clients through self-discovery, planning, conceptualizing, design, and lastly, making those important finish and furnishing selections for your home.
