There are plenty of really great interior decorators out there, so maybe you're wondering WHY and WHEN you should hire a designer! Here's a story of a current job.
I was approached by a client who is in the earliest stages of building a new home. She had a GENERAL idea of the layout and size of her ideal home and an awesome PINTEREST page, but that was it. Here's where a designer is needed. . .
I have years and years of CAD experience that is currently allowing me to have a really great time drawing out the floor plans (and electrical plans) for this client based on HER desires and NOT a plan from the internet. She handed me the dimensions of the furniture that must accompany her to her new home, shared her private Pinterest page with me, and I'm literally creating a one of a kind plan, room by room, that will bring her ideas to life.
While architects have mad CAD skills, most don't have the time or energy to look at the minute details (like adding the SAFE room but making sure the steel door is very pleasing to the eyes. . .) or to add the furniture layout. Decorators have great taste and style, but aren't trained to draw architectural plans and understand the interworking of 2D and 3D CAD, adding pictorial elements to drawings and creating finish schedules based on specifications.
If you are in the midst of creating your dream house via Pinterest but don't know where to go from there. . .Or if you have a plan that you aren't really happy with (don't settle!!), please call and let me put my years of Interior Design, Drafting and Project Management skills to work for you.
