5 Reasons to Hire an Interior Designer

OK design aficionados, let’s take a fun detour back to the basics: why should you hire an interior designer? Sure, some outside the industry might think we just make things look pretty, but there’s way more to it! Think project management, saving time and money, and having access to cool resources. Join us as we deep dive into the nitty-gritty of our design process. We’ll give you a closer glimpse at what goes on behind-the-scenes, and reveal some lesser-known facets of interior design. 

Reason 1: Hiring a Designer Saves Time and Money

Contrary to popular belief, hiring an interior designer doesn’t necessarily break the bank; in fact, it’s a strategic investment that prevents costly errors. We help maximize your space’s functionality while avoiding mistakes that might otherwise come up due to unfamiliarity with materials or design elements. This intentional approach ensures that every aspect of your space is optimized, saving you both time and money in the long run.

Reason 2: Designer Access to Exclusive Resources and Quality Products

One of the perks of working with a designer is gaining access to resources and high-quality products. Through our trade-only accounts and industry connections, we can often provide access to superior materials and unique pieces that aren’t available to the general public. Also, these products often boast better quality and aesthetic compared to what you might find through regular retail outlets. As such, this access allows for a tailored, elevated design that sets your space apart. 

Reason 3: Achieving Your Desired Aesthetic Through Expertise

Bringing your dream aesthetic to life involves more than just selecting pretty items. It’s all about understanding the science behind materials, finishes, and palettes. As designers, we have all the tips and tricks to combine these elements seamlessly, ensuring that every aspect works in harmony to achieve your dream space. And, knowing how to balance these elements creates a cohesive, visually appealing space that accurately reflects your true vision.

Reason 4: Enhancing Your Home’s Value

Investing in professional design can significantly increase your home’s resale value. This makes it an excellent choice for both present enjoyment and future profit. An expertly designed space attracts potential buyers and enhances the overall appeal of your property. It’s a win-win situation!

Reason 5: Attention to Detail for a Polished Finish

Details matter in interior design; they transform the space from good to fabulous. From the height at which lighting fixtures are hung to the scale of furniture and placement of artwork, every element is carefully considered. As a designer, my eye for detail ensures that every inch of your space is carefully curated, creating a cohesive finish that elevates the entire aesthetic. 


Each of these reasons showcases the multifaceted benefits that come with hiring an interior designer, emphasizing how our expertise goes beyond just making spaces visually appealing. We’re so excited to be launching a proven process for a seamless design through execution.

Life is short. Make it beautiful
Today marks our 27th year wedding anniversary. 11 homes, 3 kids, and countless adventures. No matter where we go, my home is always with you. Can’t wait to see what the next 27 holds.
Two years later. Two years of blood, sweat and tears. Two years of Derrick asking me to come to a decision and me changing my mind two more times thereafter. This project surprised us in so many ways. The biggest one being that it has turned into our home. 

Every time we design a space, we think about how our clients want to live in it. We strive to make each and every room a reflection of them and their lifestyle. 

That is our one intention. 

And for this small but mighty kitchen, we had to do the same for ourselves…the heart of every home. For us it’s a where we have dreamed of cooking together and unwinding after a long day. Preparing and enjoying our first meal is surreal…. seeing the fruits of our labor and extensive planning come together in a beautiful way. This is our ultimate desire for each room we design. 🤍
