My First Experience with Home Interior Design
My other half and I recently decided to hire a professional interior designer for all the rooms in our house. We finished building our dream home, and when it came time to bring over everything from our small condominium, we concluded that a new home should have new things to go inside of it. We, however, had no clue where to begin except to go out and randomly buy stuff as had in the past.
Maybe not so lucky for me, my other's half's sister was a licensed interior designer, and she quickly recommended to us that our home would be the best it could be with her services. She persuaded and begged until my other half finally was forced to capitulate from the pressure. "Someone has to do something, so why not her?"
Well, I thought she was out to scam us out of some money. She drove a brand new luxury car and lived in a home three times as large as ours, but she was known to be passionate about creating and producing. Moreover, she said she wanted to make the most beautiful interior possible for her favorite sibling. I decided there be nothing wrong with a little nepotism now and then, as long as a discount was in the works.
I expected my sister-in-law to come to my new house with paint samples and fabric swatches, but I never hoped her to bring in a carpenter, draftsman and a couple. She informed us that if we thought of our architect as the eggs and flour, then she would be the milk and sugar for the cake of our house.
Did I mention that my sister-in-law is a very creative person? She comes up with the weirdest analogies, but after I saw her start the design process on our home. She began with the blueprints of our brand new house, moreover, quickly she had sketches of design ideas for us to voice our opinions on before giving her final approval.
After all was finished, and each contractor had a paid, my other half noticed that there was no bill from my sister-in-law. When we confronted her about our missing invoice, she gave us each a hug and told us that she could not imagine a perfect present for her two favorite new homeowners. So, of course, my opinion of her was changed, and I saw that she was not successful because of the hunger or drive for money.
However, instead, she was successful because of her open and warm heart. That is something no one can interior designer can design for you except yourself.
