How To Be Confident With Design Decisions

Help!   I am so frustrated trying to finish even one room in my home.

A Sunday Well Spent Brings A Week Of Content

Every year about this time, we get what we call “Panic Calls” from soon to be clients.  These calls come from folks who are in the middle of a project, or are paralyzed and can’t pull the trigger to begin a project.  Both clients have one thing in common.  A fear of making a design mistake.  Sound familiar?  We sincerely hope not, but if so…..

The 5 Best Ways To Stay Motivated Writing A Blog-An Interior Designer’s View

Staying motivated while writing a blog can be a bit daunting at times.  Especially when you are new at it!

BLOG – A regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.

A year ago, our design firm Laurel Bledsoe Design, did not have a blog.  Reading a blog about a subject we are interested in is a pleasurable experience.  Something to look forward to when the author posts a new article.  Our favorite bloggers post on a schedule we expect and somehow they never let us down.  Now that we write Little Black “domicile”!, we understand how important it is to stay motivated.

ARE YOU CELEBRATING THE IMPERFECTIONS?

If not…maybe you need to talk with us.

The beds didn’t get made before the day took off.  Artwork is askew, that is if that last vacation shot is even framed and hung.  Photos are fuzzy and work lurks unfinished on our desks.  The wood floor has a life’s worth of scratches.  The bath is no where close to the spa retreat we crave and we still have to clean the renovated kitchen.  Sound like somewhere you know?

“Pin Me” The Inside Track To A Designer’s Pinterest Account

 

HOW DO DESIGNERS USE PINTEREST?

WE HAVE A SECRET.

As of July 2017, more than 175 million people use Pinterest every month.  75 billion Pins are currently found on the platform.  These are some amazing numbers.  What is even more amazing is, that less than a year ago, our design firm did not even have a Pinterest account.  Gasp. Gag. Choke.

Kicking and screaming we are painstakingly creating Little Black Domicile’s Pinterest Account .  You may be surprised how we are using it and why.

Beth Djalali is the powerhouse behind the successful fashion blog Style at a Certain Age .

This gal is a daily inspiration to literally hundreds of thousands of women who follow her posts.  To put it in perspective, I will repeat what she told me.  300,000+ people following you is like three football stadiums full to capacity.  She inspires me to make an effort with my wardrobe everyday.  However, as a blogger, I understand the responsibility she has to her readers.  It’s equally exciting and exhausting.  Many bloggers work at home.  We were very happy to present suggestions that truly allow work spaces to be part of our homes.

Cheerleading 101- Do I Need An Interior Designer?

HOW TO NAIL YOUR NEXT HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

“Do I need a designer…. with all the ideas and resources available to me online and with social media..I should be able to do this myself!”

Except… you only have so many hours in a day, have other responsibilities and people you’d like to spend time with.  You are likely logging many hours saving photos and ideas from sources like Pinterest.  Right now you may have a phone full of photos and a long wish list.  Some projects you have implemented either didn’t turn out like you envisioned or look just like someone else’s!  So do you need a designer?
