Firstly, it is important to have an idea of what you like and don’t like. This is a really useful starting point for what styles will work for you which will be used by the Interior Designer to formulate some suitable concepts.
There are a number of ways which will help you decide your favourite styles such as:
- Magazines – It is a good idea to browse through interior design magazines such as Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Galerie Magazine and Veranda.
- Social media – Have a look at their social media platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest which will give you a good idea of their style and moreover will showcase their portfolios.
- Local media – Take a look at their websites and see if you can find any local press coverage on any projects they have undertaken.
- Visits – Try and visit art galleries, antique shops or fashion boutiques to get a sense of what styles you like.
