Confessions of a Designer


There must be something about spring that makes everyone suddenly want to decorate their homes because I have been swamped with emails this month about people who need help with their homes. 

I know that feeling that comes every spring of wanting a fresh start and I commend those people who are reaching out to designers for help. 

I thought it might be nice to get some advice from some of my favorite designers about creating a successful decorating experience for both the client and the designer. Some of you may be contemplating hiring someone to help you but maybe you're a little nervous about how the project will work. This week  these great designers will be answering a few questions on this subject.


Autumn from Design Dump
Abbe from Studio ten 25

Here are the questions I will be asking them.

1. What is the "ideal" client?
2. How should a client pick a designer?
3. What do you think is a "myth" people have about working with a designer?
4. What are your tips to making the client-designer relationship easier?
5. What are your tips for a success e-design outcome?
6. If you could hire any designer to help
you, who would you hire?

These ladies are all tremendously talented and they each have so much advice to share!

Get ready for a great week!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means a lot. I try and answer any questions directly in the comment section so if you ask a question come back to look for my answer. However it is much easier for me to answer questions through email at kirstenkrason@gmail.com.

Have a Great Day!
