What’s one piece of advice you would give to someone considering hiring an interior designer?
Find someone with experience. You can’t beat that. After experience, you need trust. Designing someone’s home is a very personal feat. You have to be able to trust the person you hired to create the space and environment you hired them to do so. Key word here being “create” – it is a creative process that does not always go as planned, it’s organic. And with experience, your designer can guide you through that process.
What is the benefit of working alongside Gen X women?
This might be an obvious answer, but they have kind of seen and done it all at this point in their careers. This unprecedented climate has brought a lot of challenges to our industry, but after 20 years in the business, you have seen it already, one way or another. Not only do they have design knowledge to drop, but their skills in navigating the ups and down are priceless, you only gain that type of expertise with experience. That has been beyond helpful these last couple of years.
