STOP and Read!!!
People tell themselves: Well it was done on HGTV or in a Decorating Magazines (Pinterest or Houzz), so I should be able to do that. Well most professionals have a wealth of information or an innate gift. It can be misleading how easy it is to Decorate a home. You either have the skill or you don't. And, look, I cannot perform surgery, I am definitely going to hire someone for that....
Ponder this: You hire a Plumber, you hire a Dentist, You hire a Surgeon...why do you NOT think you need a Professional Interior Designer? Here are some REASONS many people don't hire a Professional Decorator:
The first reason....most women THINK they are suppose to have the DNA to decorate (usually conveyed to them by a significant other who doesn't understand the discomfort of a poorly designed home).
Every person has their own special Gifts and Talents. Be honest with yourself, if you don't, you don't. So what!?!? I cannot be around blood and guts- so there is no way I could go into the Health care industry!
My Gifts and Talents are in Decorating and providing my expertise to people, just like you, who want a home that feels and looks great ( you know what I am talking about: one that you are proud to share with your friends and family.)
Here's the second reason... Hubbie (Partner, Significant Other) doesn't want to spend the money....... realize most men (ok, some men have called me out on this, because sometimes it's the wife) would be happy with a recliner and a TV......and maybe a bed...for the entire house! They don't realize you must FEEL good with your surroundings and not be embarrassed when your friends and family visit. Show him this website- I am not here to spend your hard-earned money! You will actually SAVE you LOTS of $$$ by avoiding Decorating Mistakes! Isn't that what you want? Remember, I do not purchase anything, so you shop where you like.
Remind him/her "A happy Wife (spouse/significant) is a Happy Life!"
(Does your significant think nothing about buying a new toy, going to an expensive resort, playing golf at that expensive club, or taking expensive golf lessons.....isn't NOW the time for you to be HAPPY? Just make up any story that suits you)
