Commercial Interior Design is an extremely important part of any company's branding. Not just for visitors but also for the employees the company attracts and retains.
Both clients and employees draw conclusions about a company by the way it looks because the way it looks tells a story about the company, it's people and it's values--even in a small, rural town like Middlebury Indiana. So hiring a professional interior designer to help you create that space makes sound business sense.
"Dear Karen, We have lived in our home for over 25 years and are ready to downsize. We have a lot of decisions to make about what to keep and what to get rid of. We've also talked to a few realtors and know we have to freshen it up before we sell if we want to get top dollar. Can you help us prepare our home for sale without judging our style or breaking the bank?"
I have the privilege of working with the most beautiful clients---unfortunately this client's kitchen did not match her sparkling personality.
I'd like to dedicate this post to everyone who has ever felt glassy eyed while standing in front of thousands of paint chips in the store!
Question......How Many Paint Samples Does it Take Before you can Choose one?
The goal of this homeowner was to sell their home quickly and for top dollar so when they heard this 'free' staging advise from a realtor, "You only need a good cleaning and decluttering" they went with it.....but that's not what happened....
About this blog...
I began writing this blog in May 2016 after discovering that my mother always wanted to be a writer. She has Alzheimer's disease and she'll never realize 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)
