For so long, many people have believed that interior design is an aesthetic. Yes, that is true, but for me, it is so much more.
It is a thought process. I am constantly asking myself, WHY. Why am I making the choices I am making? I am very critical of everything from the space planning, lighting design, the choice of finishes, fabrics, appliances, plumbing, etc... Why are these the best choices for my clients and how are they going to enhance their experience in their spaces.
Often times, I have had client's say to me, "My architect or (even worse) contractor drew these plans for me." I shudder.
This is like asking advice about your stock portfolio from your housekeeper and losing $250,000.00, overnight. Then, you are mad at your house keeper. Why would you take advice from your housekeeper about your stock portfolio, when that is not her area of expertise?
If you are planning a kitchen remodel, bathroom remodel, full home remodel, or a new construction project, I'll bet you haven't consider the importance of lighting from the Title 24 codes requirements (if you live in California), the environment, and how lighting has an effect on us psychologically and emotionally.
