DESIGN for Living By Stephanie Statler You juggle your key ring to find the correct key that fits your front door. The heavy bags that hold the day’s tasks balance in your arms. It is late and you are beat! The door finally opens and…ahhh, you are HOME! Having a home you love to come home to is obtainable for all of us. Deciding to tackle home renovation on your own or with help is a question a lot of homeowners debate. Here are some tips when you are “Designing for your Lifestyle.” It is the Designer’s job to create a space that suits all of the clients’ needs, to craft an interior that reflects the homeowner’s personality and lifestyle. So, the first step is to find a Design Professional with whom you can work. Personality is a big part of the equation, so an interview to get to know each other is important. With projects taking anywhere from a few hours in the case of a consultation to a year plus for new home construction, you may be spending a great deal of time in each other’s company. Finding a Designer who is a good listener, attentive to hearing not only what the homeowner says they like, but also hearing what they don’t like sets the stage for a harmonious working relationship. A good Designer will know the product lines available as well as the pros and cons when it comes to selection. There are products that have surfaces that will stain, fabrics that will pill, furniture that will scratch and mar a floor, finishes that create a glare, can chip, spot and dull. A seasoned Interior Designer will know enough about the product lines to guide selection and educate the homeowner through the process so that the best decisions are made to satisfy their design preferences and protect their design investment. We live in our home, we entertain in our home, we love our home. Our home keeps us warm, dry, cool and comfortable; it’s usually our biggest investment. When a homeowner works with a Design Professional it’s the Designer’s job to design a place and space that says “You,” that makes it seems there is no place you would rather be but right there in YOUR HOME. Open your door and say ahhhhhh. “Helping you make your House a Home since 1997” Stephanie Harvey-Statler Interior Designer Best of 2011-2016 530-205-9509 DESTINATION Nevada County 139
