Before and After magazine spreads can be soooo inspiring!
I am fascinated by the transformation of a space, often going from outdated and drab, to lively, inspired and personal. Interior design projects, such as a recent property purchase, where the home might not have been touched for years, suddenly is given a new lease on life. The changes don’t always have to be major to be utterly transformative.
Design project beginnings are thrilling. I get swept up in a client’s excitement of their dreams for how they want their home to serve and reflect them. This planning process may be one of the favorite parts of my job. We walk through, room-by-room, discussing what is working and what isn’t. I love envisioning all the potential as various inspirations spring to mind as we walk and talk.
It’s not only gratifying to help make a client’s home more beautiful and inviting, but also a home that functions well and serves, and enhances, their everyday lives.
I share here several images of a home we recently renovated for long-time client’s that were entering a new phase of their lives. They needed a better flow, especially from the kitchen to the family room, to make entertaining family and friends more enjoyable.
Specifically, to create better room-to-room flow, we removed an under utilized shower from the nearby guest bath, repurposed this reclaimed floor space as additional room between the connecting kitchen and family room. The result was an open flow entertainment area that works for adult parties or play space for the grandkids. The client’s loved the changes.
What dreams do you have for your own home? What changes would you make that would improve and inspire the way you live? Hiring an Interior Designer will give you ideas and inspiration you never thought of, resources and project management that makes your ideas come to life, and ultimately make the most of your home.
