Interior Decorating 

Seeking help to create your perfect space? I believe there is someone out there for everyone even when it comes to creating your perfect space. So I thought I’d share with you Three Important Questions I think you should ask any interior decorator to see if you are the best fit when it comes to creating your perfect space.

#1 – What is your philosophy behind creating your client’s rooms?

How can they create your perfect space?

Each individual is different and most interior decorators understand they need to seek the needs and wants of the client, It isn’t just about making a space ooze beauty it’s about creating a connection between the client’s and their space. Being able to articulate that is a skill in itself. Everything has energy and evokes an emotional connection so when selecting the perfect pieces you need to understand your client’s energy and how they want to connect within their space.

#2 – How many client projects do they take on at once?

We endevour to ensure each and every client understands they are the most important and if a firm takes on to many projects the experience of working together could feel less than expected not because the decorator isn’t trying their best but because there is only so much fuel in the tank.  We understand the value of our service and delivery, so we ensure we do not over commit, hence why we from time to time may have a waiting list and you may see posts referring to new openings being available to notify clients who may be waiting for the opportunity to complete their home together. Here at Stylistic Designs, we feel that this is a responsible way to do business especially since we pride ourselves on striving for the best possible outcome for each and every client.


#3 – Is my investment budget realistic for what I am wanting?

It’s important to understand how much you are wanting to invest or able to financially invest in your space prior to seeking out help from an interior decorator, this helps you communicate the value you are wanting to spend upfront and assist the decorator to establish whether your desired space can be met with the value you are wanting to invest, there is no reason to spend hard-earned money or more importantly your time discussing your wants if you aren’t being realistic about the cost behind creating your desired outcome, we all know money doesn’t grow on trees – and neither does beautiful spaces!

Wanting your surroundings to touch your soul is only a value you can decide although you most certainly need to be realistic about how much you are expecting to invest before reaching out for help.

When discussing investment ranges with my clients, I also offer the option of breaking down spaces into bite-size chunks, this helps with finances and the need to have a large amount to invest to start creating your perfect home.

I find when we start the process energy levels lift and you wonder why you didn’t start the process earlier. Which in turn opens the doors to more possibility (even financially sometimes) and there is no reason why you shouldn’t focus on one room at a time and flow into the other areas in your home as long as your end result is always in mind.
