A great interior design is more complicated that simply creating the design. It also takes a good interior design team to pull it all together.
Being an interior designer takes more than outstanding design talent. A good interior designer is a great listener. It is up to the designer to make sure that the wishes and needs of the homeowner are identified and incorporated into all aspects of the design. A great interior designer is a good collaborator. It is up to the designer to work with the architect, the builder and the various craftspeople to manage the project well and to make sure design concepts are executed perfectly while getting the best results from everyone on the team.
A great interior designer is a great communicator. Not only must the designer communicate and document the scope and details of a project, but they must also stay on top of the budget, the schedule and all the unanticipated aspects of a project.
Finally, the designer should ensure that the project is fun and informative. Whether refurnishing a room, or building an entire home, a design project can be a very stressful experience. But by proper planning and a focus on all of the elements of a project, we can make sure the project is a great experience for everyone.
