Creating a Stunning Interior
What is the key to achieving a beautiful interior in your home? If you have enlisted the help of an experienced and qualified interior designer it can be as easy as 1-2-3. Our signature service is comprised of three essential steps- we call it C3 Design and you’ll only find it at Design Connection. We have been talking about our exclusive interior design process in the past few blog posts starting with CONNECTING and this week we continue with the second C in our design process, CREATING.
Connecting With Your Interior Design Needs
Listening. It seems like such a simple thing to do, especially in a service oriented industry like mine. However, you’d be amazed at how many times I meet with a new client and they tell me that they need a room redone because the last interior designer didn’t give them what they wanted. Why? It’s simple. The designer didn’t listen. That’s where the first of our Three Essential C’s of Interior Design comes in. In our C3Design strategy, the first and crucial step is CONNECTING with our clients. Every client is unique and one of the main benefits of having a interior designer is that you should end up with a completely custom space that reflects YOUR indivuduality and YOUR tastes. Not the other way around.
