Whether you have a designated home office or a desk in your kitchen, you want a stylish space that allows you to be focused, creative, and comfortable. Unfortunately, home offices can get messy and quickly become a place you can’t work in. But with intentional planning and a few personal touches, these home office design ideas will help you create a space that inspires you to work!
“What inspires you?”
As an interior designer, I hear this question often. It’s one I love to answer because I’m continually absorbing new information to guide my aesthetic. I love to travel, try new foods, and tend to view the world in a romantic way. I approach my projects with the same warmth and enthusiasm.
Starting an interior design project is such a fun and exciting time! But the process of finding the right designer can be overwhelming. Where do you begin?
Before I go any further, I must put a graphic warning on the intro to this Q & A. What you’re about to read is, sadly, a true story. But it re-inforces the need for high-performance fabrics!
So we have a English lab, Archie, who you may have seen our socials. He’s so doggone cute and chonky and the office loves him! But he’s a larger guy and he doesn’t always realize it. When he was a pup, he made messes. Messes of all kinds! But definitely the most egregious kinds…
Each client’s story is unique. The best way to tell your story is to build a custom home that reflects you and your personality. As interior designers, working with custom home builders means we can customize every detail of the home to tell our client’s story. When we’re designing luxurious interiors for our clients, we want to make sure they complement the home’s bones.
Whether I’m designing my own home or a client’s, using pieces that are durable and sustainable is essential. Choosing to incorporate sustainable decor prevents you from having to replace things quickly. It also allows you to make a positive impact on the community and the environment.
Sustainable interior designs give you the confidence of knowing that you’re creating a safe and healthy environment for your family.
Last week, I attended High Point Market 2019, and it was a blast! This is my twelfth year going (yes, you read that right), and I still get excited every time. The energy cannot be beat. Hundreds of designers descend on North Carolina. For five days, they rush from one showroom to the next, with little tipples of champagne in their hands and dreams of their next design project in their heads.
“So, what’s your story?”
Don’t you hate this question?
I wish I could be one of those people with the perfect elevator pitch for who they are, but my answer is all over the place. It really depends on who’s asking. Sometimes, I talk about being a designer, being a mom, being in love with my next vacation, anything! It’s never just one thing.
