What an interior designer does: As a designer I envision plans andoutfits spaces in a way that makes them both beautiful and functional.  I always balance aesthetic considerations with structural planning to reflect the clients’ lifestyle, set the desired mood, complement the home’s architectural features, and ensure that less glamorous details (like electrical outlets and air vents) fit into the scheme. interior design requires cultivating relationships with trusted artisans, vendors and others who execute my design…image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image

Quintessential Classic Materials

image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image imageA time-honored choice for countertops, marble is a classic that’s versatile enough to look good in all sorts of kitchens. That said, it’s not without its downsides: Susceptible to staining, scratching, and etching, marble is a natural product that develops a patina with use. Some people like a surface that reflects their cooking history, others don’t. Read on to determine if this high-maintenance beauty is the material for your remodel project.
One of the attractions of marble is that it’s available in a wide variety of natural colorations. Marble comes in hues of white, black, gray, yellow, green, and pink, some with dark, prominent veins (see Exotic Marble in Modern Spaces) and others with more subtle patterning (see Marble Bath.) As a Interior Designer specialist in kitchens and bathrooms I would point out that the irregular lines of veining can be a nice contrast to the straight lines inherent in kitchens.

Despite the variety of colors available, white marble is generally the first choice for use as kitchen countertops. Like a white button-down shirt, white marble is adaptable, mixing well with different styles and a wide variety of materials (stainless, wood, tile). It can be dressed up with a polished finish, or made more casual with a honed finish. Another benefit is that etching is less visible on white marble than on dark. Worried about white?

quintessential design& how to be involved in your design…

Most design projects begin with three primary intensions..regardless of the materials,or design . Hire the right team from the start, and spend what it costs to get the project done correctly and efficiently ,the firwst time around. Get estimates and meet with several until you feel it is the right team. I always meet and review all that the client has as goals, woshes and hopes to achieve with a budget that is comfortable and possible! image

Subject: more to a good bathroom design

. Is there more to a good design than a few logical arrangements? How do I make that puzzling bathroom spectacular? More than just simple and utilitarian. Multiple design schemes for a project. At the core exhibit my general use of creative judgment in constructing new arrangements to fit a particular design situation and selecting materials, fixtures, appliances, lighting, etc., is hardly debatable falling into realm of principles of design and esthetics.

In general terms
– Profile, goals and objectives (to make a logical prelude to the presentation)
– Floor plan
– Demolition plan (in case of extensive structural alterations only)
– Elevations
– Specifications of all major surfaces ( as such with reference to image or sample)
– Full specs of one major surface (all details, including sizes, quantities, patterns and joints, yes grout color too, installation, pricing , supplier, delivery )
– Appliances, fixtures, cabinets and fittings picks (as such, complete list a+ )
– Exhibit general understanding of workings of all services.

Question 1-: What attributes do you think are necessary to make a good designer?
We now live in the 21st century, the third wave of informative/digital technology age. I feel how we go about designing an interior space must accommodate this trend. To be a great designer I feel you must not be afraid to go far out there, and stretch into the future while the mo

st important thing is to think about how the space is used and how will they live going forward?

A great interior designer should be able to be a self-starter from the beginning of a project. The designer must be able to understand good design and prepare and present her ideas, finish selections, materials, and a budget. Be organized and start with a solid foundation, a concept that supports the individual elements of the project.

I believe the key attributes for a great designer is someone who can access the scope of the job. What does the client want done? A great designer should be able to incorporate what the client already owns and loves into their design project. A creative person that has a vision, expertise in designing a space, and a great manager of finding the right furnishings, making sure painting and installations are happening in a timely planned schedule. The job comes in as close to budget as (include the unexpected costs up front.)

Ultimately, an organized, creative self-starter that can prepare and present a complete concept for the design project.
