During this redecoration process I think what I fear the most is making a huge mistake, settling and ultimately not being happy with the end results.
I know that what is a mistake for one person might not be considered as one to another. Decorating will always be known as objective and personal. There are several fundamental formulas and guidelines in design but thanks to you and your comments and support, I now truly believe that planning and knowing what you love is the key to any successful interior.
Incorporating personal items and aesthetic will help us relate to our environment. We want to feel comfortable in our own home. We want pieces that evoke positive emotions and memories for us and our family while planning out our composition. Otherwise, the tendency to feel disconnected can become all too apparent and that is exactly what is happening in our house at the moment.
Now that we’ve scanned magazines, books and websites and have found ourselves with reoccurring elements, colours and patterns, we are feeling more and more confident in all of our choices. Fear should no longer play any role in this project. Mistakes, although not entirely avoidable, will not overshadow the process of designing for it. After all, this is supposed to be a fun project, and thanks to you, it will be.
So what are your fears when designing for interiors, whether it be your own or for a new client?
