“I don’t know what I like, but, I DO know what I DON’T like”. Interior designers cringe when a client begins a consultation with this extremely negative remark. Developing a design plan for someone who does not know what he or she likes is next to impossible! It presents a huge challenge, but, never fear, a great interior designer is trained to accept the challenge!
We understand that many people DO have a hard time identifying their personal design style, consequently, we spend a full hour interviewing our clients to ascertain insight into their personality, lifestyle and decorating preferences. This, along with an accurate assessment of the space and the home in which we will be working, will insure the development of a plan to find and showcase that fashion sense.

The struggle homeowners face when they attempt to create living spaces that reflect their individual style, and to identify their own unique taste, can be solved relatively easy. It is hiding in the closet!  You too, can decorate like a pro, just let your clothing choices guide you.      Take an inventory of your wardrobe choices. What colors did you choose most often? These will be the colors to work into your decorating choices. Did you choose more blouses and skirts, or casual shirts and comfortable pants?  Examine the fabrics you most often choose. Silky blouses and skirts mean you like a little more formality, such as silk drapes and traditional or transitional furnishings. Naturally, an abundance of well-worn jeans and tee shirts mean you like casual styles. Perhaps tweeds, leathers and distressed finishes are your preferences. Are your clothes colorful and eclectic in style? If so, you will be attracted to colorful collages. Lots of accessories in your closet dictates lots of accessories in your decorating. Do you most often select matching colors and patterns or contrasting hues? Follow a similar theme of colors, patterns  and textures through to your decorating choices. If you are comfortable wearing a lot of bright, bold color and pattern,  you will enjoy decorating your home in a similar fashion.

IF YOU LIKE DRAMATIC COLOR IN YOUR CLOTHES YOU WILL LOVE IT IN YOUR HOME!

Shoes also say a lot about your taste. Lots of tennis shoes, loafers and flats mean your personal taste tends to fit well in a casual homey decor. While an abundance of high heels and dressy shoes call for a little more formality and symmetry in your home fashions. Funky boots mean funky unique furnishings, of course.
Do you own an abundance of dramatic scarves, belts or jewelry? If you do, you will like large, dramatic accessories. If you prefer less drama in your attire, you will be more comfortable in a simple, uncluttered environment.

Of course, there are many appropriate selections in between, but, the closet is a great place to start recognizing your style preferences to and develop a plan to create an ambiance that will be an expression of you and your lifestyle.
Now… wasn’t that easy? 🙂
