We weren’t allowed to visit our friends and family in their own home due to COVID restrictions. So, the joy of experiencing interior design through home visits hit me on Christmas day when I visited my neighbours house. It was the first time I visited, and I was so happy to see her home.
I finally saw pieces that we had discussed like a new desk and desk chair. Her house was filled with Mid-Century Modern gems, such as a formica table. It was such a treat for me to visit my neighbour’s house and by doing so I got to know her a little better.
Home Visits- An Expression of You
Your home is an opportunity to express yourself and tell your story. When you think about it, it’s the only place you can do this. Work stations are impersonal, even more so if you hot desk.
Working with a client earlier this year, she too wanted to style her apartment in a Mid-Century Modern style. On the last visit to see the pieces installed, when I worked through the front door, my very first impression was – wow! This is Belinda’s place.
Belinda’s apartment was a complete reflection of her. Her life story, passions (fashion), family and loved ones. As well as, her political and social consciousness (through books) was all on display.
I love this about interior design. This is why I don’t specialise in any one particular style. Instead I specialise in telling my client’s story, realising their vision. What this means is that I know, love and am passionate about all interior design styles. I appreciate different elements in all of them from Minimalism to Classical French.
Next year I will make an effort to ‘finish’ some interior styling I’ve stalled on. For example installing my treasured art, finding that ‘perfect’ pendant light for my bedroom and buying new bed linen. I think we all deserve to live in a beautiful home and be surrounded by forever pieces that have a story and tell a story about YOU.
So, what home decorating will you do in 2021? Which buyable inspo board excites you to create a beautiful space?
All the best for the new year 2021.
