How do we get from “the before” to the “Wow, that’s beautiful!” stage? In this post, I’ll walk you through the interior design process, with the help of some pictures to illustrate the steps you have to take to achieve your design goals.
Step 1: Questions, Questions, Questions
What is the architecture like? How about the natural light, the exits, the traffic patterns, and the ceiling height? All these factors and more affect how we can dress the room.
Step 2: Activities
I ask my clients to think about the activities they want to do in the room in question. How many people live there? How many people gather there on a typical weekend?
Family rooms need to be shape shifters that encourage cozy TV watching, entertaining the family and the book club, exercising, reading, and resting.
Step 3: Floor Plan
Make a floor plan. Using computer-aided design, we can make the most of focal points, allow for traffic patterns, and decide on the best sizes for rugs and furniture. This is the easiest way to get what you need in the right sizes.
