why use an interior designer

I am a confidant individual in lots of ways and I like to think I know my own style and I know what works in my home.

I don’t like obtrusive patterns, I do like comfort and bright, primary colours except in the kitchen, which I like to look white and fresh. My bedroom too is in shades of pale blue and grey and is designed (by me!) to be calm.

It has taken me a good few years to detangle myself from fashion and trends and work out what it is that makes me happy rather than what is considered at the time. I am proud and pleased I have found this sense of self. So why would I need an interior designer?

Well a few reasons actually. My style does not take into account my husbands and as we both live here I am guessing that is probably a little unfair. When we try to pull our styles together we clash and often he ends up putting up with my ideas.

Begrudgingly.

I also tend to get stuck on a style and use it again and again and rarely introduce anything new. for example I have had red sofas for probably the last1 5 years now. That is a long time.

I am not sure if I know what I like or I am afraid of a change. Perhaps a little of both. Am I stuck in a rut?

I have been looking at an interior designer, The House Clinic who pride themselves on listening to a client’s wants and needs and designing the interior they desire. This is crucial for me because whilst I would want their knowledge and artistic eye I would hate to be ignored in the process. That may make us a beautiful interior but it wouldn’t feel like our home.

We need someone to listen to us both really and help us find our vision for our home  (not just mine.) I also need my set ideas challenging. How lovely it would be to have something fresh we both equally adored.

Maybe it is time to find a design consultant and take matters out of my hands.

It would be interesting to see what they come up with.

    I have been really lucky with my hubby that we both like the same style. Sometimes he comes up with a style idea that is quite good, we bounce our ideas off each other then sometimes we come up with even better ideas! A interior designer would be a lovely job to have!

    I would love to use an interior designer for a few spots in my home, even though I am comfortable doing my own thing.
