Tips for employing an Interior Designer

How Interior Designers add value –

We often hear people say why would I employ an interior designer when I know what I like? We wanted to share this blog posting we saw by ‘My-Studio’ – A snapshot of interior design value. – we felt it is a good insight into ‘why’ and ‘how’ they add value that we wanted to share with you.

About My-Studio.

My-Studio specialises in contemporary, luxury interior design. They set up in 2012 to help folks with a keen sense of design and style achieve their vision within realistic time frames and budgets. Clare Weeks who is the founder of My-Studio can be contacted at or on twitter to bounce some ideas around. Her recent projects include: a contemporary West London home, a family home in Chiswick, a Barbican penthouse and showhomes for London’s best property developers.

Further tips on employing a interior designer:

Your own likes are a great starting point but then there is much more to creating a wonderful interior that functions the way you want it and looks the way you would like it too. Employing a interior designer can help you create your room without making costly mistakes and often save money as they have such a wide knowledge of suppliers.

We would recommend employing someone who’s work you admire or has a shop that is full of items you love. Ask to see their portfolio and make sure you like their style. Ask about the design process and share ideas about what you are looking for and your budget restrictions. A job works far better if you decide all details at the very beginning. You want to work with someone you trust so you enjoy the experience.

What questions do you have?

Over the coming months we will start to share stories and interviews from Interiors Designers, our retail stockists and architects using Natasha Marshall fabrics and wallcoverings.
