Hello everyone, my name is Marissa Agostinelli your Big Sandy Superstore in-home designer. If you are anything like me you probably have a stack of design magazines of marked pages with folded corners along with various Pinterest boards that feature your dream design elements, new tips & tricks to try at home and favorite space layouts with color coordination’s. If you were to sit down and analyze all of those saved images and pieces of information you will find that quite often there’s a trend or a pattern. It may not always seem apparent at first but that is where the real fun begins.
The way that I like to structure my process is to look at everything I do through the lens of these following words, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Interior Design is about how to evoke people’s emotions in the built environment, whether it’s through the manipulations of shapes, textures and colors of a room or simply incorporating an overall theme that flows through ought the home. Once you begin a home project it is more beneficial to get a designer involved right away, in order to start building your relationship so that you are confident in the recommendations and packages they put together for you.
Some concerns that often arise when hiring a designer is that it’s going to be too expensive and that the designer is going to try to push their own personal style that doesn’t reflect the client’s personality. It is quite the opposite; a designer can help save time and money and is always leading the way for the homeowner to contribute their own ideas for the space. It is very important to keep a clear line of communication between the client and the designer and if there are any questions or concerns the client should never hesitate to bring them up and work with the designer in finding the best solutions for their project.
The way to be well prepared for the first consultation would be to make a list of needs, wants, desires and what isn’t working in the current living environment. Also having a good idea as far as what budget and time frame to work around can help the designer work closely within those guidelines and make it apparent if there’s the possibility of something coming up that might extend those areas.
At the end of the day it’s all about cultivating relationships, solving problems and creating a living environment that best suits the needs and vision of the client. I would like to welcome you into the Big Sandy Superstore Dublin location to get started with your free 1 hour in-home consultation. I can’t wait to meet with you and start developing a space that fits your personality
