SECTION 1/7: YOUR HOME AND HISTORY
Take a few minutes and write down what you liked and didn’t like about your childhood home.
What were your parent’s priorities for your childhood home?
Without looking at pictures, can you visualize the textures and colors you liked? Describe them.
What do you want to incorporate or avoid in your current home?
Is your home a current reflection of your sense of style and if not, how would you like to change it?
Whether you’re planning to do your project with professional guidance or not, it is a big task. The more you prepare yourself and discuss your priorities with your spouse or partner, the better. What you don’t want to do is end up in a conflict over the design or financial decisions that accompany it, and answering these questions will prevent problems later. An interior designer will ask you most if not all of these questions so they understand your needs, desires, priorities and dreams. Why are you doing the project?
Why is this important now?
What will having a redesigned space do for you?
How will it impact your life, family, efficiency, productivity, enjoyment, etc.?
Do you have a deadline for the project? (wedding, graduation, baby, etc.)
