When you are considering your next renovation, interior remodel, or just buying a new special piece of furniture, take a breath and make a list of why you are doing it, what your favourite style is, and what it’s function is? Don’t be lead along by sales people and brochures, but rather have a clear idea of what you want. Good designers think about these parameters and design accordingly. They have the ability to quickly envisage ideas that will suit your ideas. Don’t be put off by the mainstream retail scene that designs for the latest fashion style. A beautifully designed interior or bespoke piece should be source of joy forever. The power of good design is to perform to your needs and uplift your spirits. What have you got to lose by thinking through a few different ideas?
