For a Cheery Interior You’ll Need Some Personality…

SS-5

You have a design sense. We all do.

Interior Designers inject their vision of your home, and your lifestyle, into your space. In order for a designer to sell themselves they have to be recognizable. Their style will be written all over your place. It will fit neatly into their portfolio, which is full of images that have just the right amount of difference mixed in with the reoccurring themes, which spells familiarity and designer evolution. They may mean well, but you are just another notch on their bedpost.

Interior Designer’s are great for people who have no idea where to shop for furniture and accessories, and those who are not sure how to place furniture. Use designers for guidance on where to shop and how to place things.

Ask a designer for help on where to put your desk, what dimensions your sofa should be to meet the scale of the room, how big your bed frame should be, and whether you can fit an island in your kitchen! Organizational and placement questions are good ones to ask.  But for the finishing touches please speak and be heard.

Who cares if your home and it doesn’t fit the designer standard? Whether it’s a bit crazy, overly organized, or refined, don’t worry about it! Let your home be an expression of you.

When I look for spring and summer accessories, to make my space pop, I like to browse ETSY for vintage and handmade pieces.

It’s nice to carry colours and themes throughout a room, and even your entire house, to create a natural flow and balance.

This Spring and Summer I’ve been thinking about Countries; I was born in United States, most of my live has been spent here in Canada, as a Canadian citizen, and my ethnic background is Nigerian. And I’ve always had a passion for all things English!
