Giving our clients the complete experience of full-service design is critical, so we educate them on what to expect in terms of the expense and process for styling, as the items are in addition to the interior design fees.
Sometimes, clients prefer to provide a Styling Budget, and we work within that framework, other times, we bring in what we think is needed to complete the design, and clients “shop” to purchase their favourite pieces. Whenever we can, we use items that are meaningful to our clients, so the space immediately feels like “home.”
Fundamentals of Styling Usually Include
The art, accessories, books, blankets, etc that make a space fill complete and cozy. If the process of interior design is like a play, then the styling is the final act. If you consider it that way, you can see how a home would feel incomplete, and maybe even a little sterile, without that finishing layer.
When our clients come into the space for the “reveal,” they experience the design with all senses, and truly are welcomed home.
