How to Design Your Dream Home

People often ask me “what is your favorite room to design.” Though I truly enjoy the process of selecting design elements, colors, and materials for each room, my true passion is designing a home from the ground up.

I enjoy working with homeowners, architects, and builders to choose the “bones” and layout of the home. I find that the moldings and light fixtures that a client selects are just as important as the wall colors and accessories.

Over the past decade, I have built relationships with architects and builders across the nation. That being said, my team and I are always happy to work with new architects and builders as well. I find that, by taking a team approach, the process of designing your dream home goes much more smoothly, and our clients are much happier with the finished product.

Here are some questions to ask yourself when beginning the process of designing your dream home:

  • What will be the most important rooms in your home? For example, do you need both a formal and informal dining area?
  • How would you like your indoor and outdoor living spaces to coexist? Is it important to you to have additional outdoor living space?
  • Where do you find inspiration? What aesthetics do you hold dear, and how do want that to be reflected in your home?

After considering questions such as these mentioned above, you should have a clearer understanding of what is important to you and your family. In the end, it is my goal to create a home that reflects its owners’ personality and passions. Often, the easiest way to do this is to design from the ground up.
