There are so many myths and misconceptions out there regarding working with an interior designer. So, we thought it would be a good idea to put some of those to rest and enable our Foxy Faithful to listen to that little voice (AKA our post from a couple weeks ago) telling them to hire a designer in 2019.

Myth # 1: My Home Won't Look Like I Live There

"The best rooms have something to say about the people who live in them."

- Designer, David Hicks

The most important part of selecting an interior designers is making sure that they understand who you are as a person - your style, tastes, personality, and lifestyle. This will enable your designer to truly create a space that represents you. A good designer will create the space that always knew you wanted but didn't necessarily know how to achieve and it will just scream "YOU!"

Myth #2: My Home Will Look Great But Not Be Practical

"The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live."

- Designer, Albert Hadley

Piggybacking off the previous myth, a good designer really takes the time to fully understand how you live and creates their design accordingly. Do you have kids? Great! We'll focus on durable fabrics that are stain-resistant and will hold up well to little muddy shoe prints and juice spills. Do you love to entertain? Fantastic! We'll create a space that is welcoming and conducive to large gatherings with plenty of places to set food and drinks.

Just because you have a beautiful home does not mean that it can't be functional for your life.

Myth #3: A Designer Will Make Me Get Rid Of All My Existing Furniture

"Be faithful to your own taste, because nothing you really like is ever out of style."

- Designer, Billy Baldwin

Just like how a designer should understand who you are as a person and how you live your life they should also understand that there are certain pieces of furniture and decor that are important to you. They shouldn't ask you to part with those items but instead take them and use them in ways you never would have thought of, thus helping you see those beloved items in an entirely new and different light.
