Yes, “Agony and Ecstasy”. At the risk of being way over the line, egotistically speaking, by the use of the title of a book written about Michelangelo, I will explain…
First an excellent designer is truly a fine artist. Each canvas includes the expected visuals, but also creates or enhances personal lifestyles. As professional Interior Designers – just as Michelangelo did with the Popes – we work at the whim of our clients. They, after all, support us.
We also are often subject to the whims of our suppliers. It is pure agony when things we ordered for a client don’t come in on time or arrive at our warehouse damaged. Or, even worse, when they are discontinued in the middle of a project. In today’s fast paced world, this seems to happen more often. We accept the responsibility and experience the frustration of disappointing our clients when these unforeseen problems arise.
Happily, the ecstasies out number the agonies by far. I have a deep and abiding passion for design, which has led to a most rewarding and emotionally satisfying career. With this blog, I hope to create an understanding of good and practical interior design and share some of our projects, and the problems we have encounter as well as how we solved them through design.
