What interior design style is right for me?

This is one of the most asked questions I have had over the years. I always answer that question with “You may not know what you want but I will after I ask you these questions.”

Through the years I have developed a series of questions that help me capture your personal interior design style and taste. That way, I am able to provide you with a beautiful environment that is uniquely your own.

Here are a few of the questions that you need to ask yourself.

  • Do you have any pictures of rooms that you like out of magazines?
  • Is your lifestyle casual, or formal?
  • What type of entertaining do you do?
  • How would you like this room to function?
  • How many people would you like to accommodate?
  • What kind of wear does this room get?
  • What colors do you like?
  • What colors do you dislike?
  • Do you like neutral or colored backgrounds?
  • Do you like light, medium or dark shades?
  • Do you prefer soft or intense color?
  • Do you like warm or cool colors?
  • What type of fabrics do you like?
  • How do you feel about mixing patterns?
  • Are there any allergies to fibers that we should be aware of?
  • Do you like straight lines or curved lines?
  • Do you like metal tables?
  • Do you like glass or marble tops?
  • Do you like carving or detail?

These are just a few of the questions I ask, but it gives you an idea of all the details that go into determining interior design style. After I ask these questions and others it starts to paint a picture of the design style that will be perfect for you.
