Why would you hire an Interior Stylist to decorate your home?
It will probably come as no surprise that my answer to the question “should I hire an interior stylist”? Is a very firm yes.
Thats right as a working interior stylist, this blog post is going to benincredibly bias. Im giving you fair warning. I think Interior stylists rock. I think the work they do is incredible. And I think theyre a must for anyone that wants to give a room in their home a make over.
And in this post, im going to tell you why you should hire one.
WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE AN INTERIOR STYLIST
WE CONSOLIDATE YOUR IDEAS
Weve all gotten stuck in a pinterest hole, hours spent pinning imagery of our dream room. If you find that your overwhelmed with options and cant figure out what works together and what doesnt, an interior atylist is expert in this area.
I can take all of your ideas and sift throgh them, sorting out what will look best in your space, work best for you and yur family day to day, and also point out the pieces youve selected that just arent going to work in the room you want to redesign.
It might take you months to sort this out. A stylist can work it out in a matter of minutes.
WE HELP YOU VISUALISE THE SPACE
Ive posted on here before about how important an Mood Board is, but if you dont have the know how, an interior stylist is also a master in pulling all of your inspiration imagery together and presenting it to you on a mood board.
I create Mood Boards for every client, showing them the pieces im thinking of and the vibe of the space were going for. I get the tick of approval to go onto the next stage and start sourcing furniture and decor for them.
Mood Boarding allows you to see all of the potential pieces side by side, and can give you an accurate picture of what your dream room can look like.
WE SAVE YOU OODLES OF TIME
The endless trek through furniture and homewares stores can be rough. Especially if you have kids in toe. Even tougher if you have a partner who isnt keen on shopping or disagrees with you.
When you work with an Interior Stylist, all of the hard work is done for you. I consolidate your ideas, I present you with a mood board, and I provide you with a complete specification sheet that outlines every piece of furniture in the space. This is all without leaving the house.
WE SAVE YOU BUCKETS OF MONEY
This is probably the best part for you – raking in all of the savings!
We have the access to wholesale prices on furniture and decor, which is much cheaper than retail pricing. Every wholesaler is different and gives different discounts, but on average you can expect to save around 10-30% off RRP. Not everything is going to be purchased wholesale, it depends on the project and your needs/wants and budget. But trust me when i say that even when paying the stylist their design fee to work on the project, you still come m out infront due to all of the wholesale pricing I give you access to.
WE GIVE YOU PIECES YOU CANT GET ELSEWHERE
One of the greatest things about an Interior Stylist, is getting access to furniture and decor you cant get in retail stores. This means that you end up with a really unique room.
I dont know about you but I hate it when other people with the exacf couch I have, or the same dining table and chairs. I like to feel as though my room is special, with stunning items people will ask about. Theres nothing better than a friend or family member pining for an item you got through an interior stylist
