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.

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

In other words, how can you create my 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 the perfect story within the space that relates to the people or person living within its walls. Each space has energy so when selecting the perfect pieces you need to understand your client’s energy and how they want to feel within the space.

#2 – How many client’s do you work with at one time?

I feel this is an important question in relation to how your needs are being met during your time together. Most decorators know how many clients and projects they can take on at one time, hence why sometimes we may have a waiting list and you may often see our post about opening our books up to new client projects as others are winding down. This is a responsible way to do business if you want to provide your best to 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.
