Interior Designer Elkhart Goshen Indiana
I believe we are all created in God's image (Genesis 3) and therefore we are all creative. But interior design is like any skill or talent - If you don't practice it, you won't master it. In addition, design is complicated. There are a lot of 'parts' that all depend on each other to function well and look good. In today's culture, it isn't sexy to say, "wait let's think and consider this". But without professional interior design knowledge & experience or a knowledgeable coach, your attempts at creating beautiful spaces might lead to frustrating results., unmet expectations, disappointment, wasted money/time and stress..
Another reason you might have difficulty designing is because it takes more than watching HGTV to learn how to successfully do it. Let me ask you, what are you proficient at? Piano, Teaching, Basketball? Did you gain your level of proficiency by watching or participating? The DIY design machine makes interior design look easy and the friendly sales person with product to sell will tell you the same but in reality, successful design is work. And from all the pictures I am seeing on the internet it looks like many folks could use a little help avoiding typical, costly design mistakes.
To make my point, I've collected a few google images - not to shame but to educate and dispel common design myths. (Hey - I'm all in for putting the fun back into function and for buying pretty on purpose - that's why I'm your best friend in the interior design industry). Hopefully these will inspire you to do your homework before you begin your project (or call me for the inside scope!)
I've tried to note the designer or photographer when it was available but if you recognize someone's work and I haven't given them credit, just let me know and we'll change that!
Teaching and Coaching others to make great design decisions is the reason I started this business because a trustworthy, professional interior design advocate was not available to shepherd me through the process when I needed it. Now, I help others with their design projects as much or as little as they need me.
Hiring a designer is a wise and sensible choice if you want to avoid typical and costly design mistakes. And it may make even more sense if you want a pulled together look that creates peace and calm at home and don't have the time to figure it out and practice until it looks good. I mean.....design is math, science, art and composition. Do you practice 40 hours a week to achieve mastery?
Now you know the truth about Interior Design!
If you think you might need a little design help, you're right - you do! I've solved a million design dilemmas that you haven't even thought of yet! Let me help you.

About this blog...
I began writing this blog in May 2016 after discovering that my mother always wanted to be a writer. She had Alzheimer's disease and never realized her dream. Sometimes in our deepest grief we are motivated to encourage others to fearlessly be themselves so that their gifts and stories are shared. I mean, how else can we change the world?. So I began to record the things that reflect who I am and what is important to me, because one day my memories too, may be gone and what would that mean to the people God gave me to care for and the good works He gave me to do? So, here is where I share the important stuff so that you can learn real design, not decorator tricks, but fundamental and salient concepts to apply so that you can create your own exemplary home and so that my family and I can remember the life we lived and created here in our home, our sacred place. Because my work is important, this is also where I share my favorite design projects and how good design enhanced their lives as well. I hope you're inspired and encouraged as I share my memories, my work, my mission & my life. Many blessings, (Numbers 6: 24-26)
