cityhome DESIGN (warm welcome to Andrea; guest blog contributor)
Interior design is not about the way your house looks. Well, it is, but it’s so much more than that. Good design is about creating a space that inspires; a place for relaxation, and a comfortable, warm environment where you can reboot after a hard day. The best design is not about turning a home into a museum, where everything is pretty, but rigid. It’s about expressing your personality and welcoming others. More than anything, great home design is about allowing you to love where you live.
My first meeting with a client is always exciting. It’s my chance to really get to know someone and what they’re about. What is your lifestyle? What do you like to do in your spare time? What inspires you? As an interior designer, it’s important that I start some dialogue, get you thinking, and awaken your own design senses. It’s always so rewarding to see my clients find their design voice!
My goal with cityhome design [and with this blog] is to make this world a little prettier, one space at a time. I want us to walk together through anything and everything to do with design and staging. I’ll give you the inside scoop on where to get the best furniture and accessories, and guide you to inspirational spaces around the city. My hope is to spark your creativity and get you started on your own design adventure. If I’ve done my job correctly, when you look at your home, all you’ll see is potential.
Your home should be an expression of you and your family, a place for you to get excited about, a creative outlet. It could be a space where others want to gather, a place that delights the senses, a show-stopper, a window to your soul. Creating your self-inspired space is such an exciting process; I’d love to assist you on your creative journey!
