Have you ever cut your own hair badly or had a DIY interior design project flop?
Raise your hand if you have ever stood in front of your mirror crying after a botch job to your hair “just to get you by till your next appointment”, or worse yet to “save money”! Or, have you made an even more costly mistake with your home by implementing a DIY project without an overall interior design plan? Raise your hand again!
Hair and Interior Design
Ok, let’s both put our hand’s down and get serious about our home’s interior design plan. To start, think about your home and your hair in the same way.
Let’s say you have a short, brunette hair style. You’ve decided you want your natural blonde back with pony tail ready locks. Just as it takes time to grow out hair, it can take time to get your home the way you want it. Your hairdresser will get you through the growing pains with a plan for your hair so you look your best along the way. An interior designer can help you create a detailed plan for your home you can implement over time, on your schedule and with your budget.
The Hair and Home Goal
For most of us, we want to be living in the home that is designed perfectly to suit our needs and have our hair look good everyday. Raise your hand again if this is you.

Why hire an interior designer?
Have you ever said to yourself, in frustration after finishing a home project, “My next project I’m hiring an interior designer!”? A designer can replace those frustrations with results that exceed your expectations. Good design is for everyone, every home and is achievable with a custom plan.
The right designer will take time to get to know you and will determine the wants and needs for your long term goals. By asking you simple questions, we can understand how you want to live and show you what is possible with your home’s structure. As interior designers, we also bring our professional knowledge, experience and insight to your home’s plan. We will listen to your ideas and help you expand the concepts to make them even better.
We can show you how to get more value with unique choices and combinations of otherwise standard materials. As a by-product, using an interior designer you are more likely avoid costly mistakes. Best of all, by hiring an interior designer you will be able to create a custom decor and look forward to the projects without the added frustrations of wondering how things will turn out.
How is an interior designer like a hairdresser?
Kristen did such a nice job explaining the benefits of using an interior designer. No need to repeat. Instead I’ll share how this post came to be and how we, as designers, stay inspired.
Years ago my hairdresser made the comment that she and I did the same thing…she for clients hair and me for their homes. She was so right and her words have stuck with me.
A good haircut is one that suits “us” best. It can be styled in so many different ways. Colored in hundreds of shades. Changed over and over, trying new things or reverting back to our comfort zones. No matter how badly we treat it, even when it gets dangerously out of control, it’s fixable. We look at it every day, several times a day and count on it to be there for us.
Now go back and change haircut to home and see if you agree that little miss snippet was onto something…using professionals has its perks!
Interior Design Inspiration
So where do we, as interior designers, get our inspiration? From you, our wonderful clients and your home. Your home’s architecture, the way the natural lighting falls, your art, your furnishings, your pets, your kids, your late nights and early mornings, your good habits, your bad habits, the way you see your home and the goals you have, all keep us inspired to help you plan your home’s interior design that is just right for you. Getting our inspiration from you never fails.
On this Motivational Monday, Cyber Monday to be exact, before you buy another item for your home, think about your plan. If you already have a plan, and can take advantage of the mega sales, go for it. If you need a plan, we’d love to talk with you.
Is your home ready for that perfect “hairstyle”?
