I created this workshop because the fear of buying the wrong thing is real!
The fear of buying the wrong thing is real and I know exactly what that feels like. Way back, before I’d studied to become an interior designer, before I’d graduated from design school, before I was a practicing interior design professional I’d purchased two armchairs and I thought I’d nailed it. When I got them home though, I realised, waaaaaaaaaaaaay too late I hadn’t nailed it. At all.
OMG the disappointment was beyond real. It was downright painful. It was so painful I wanted to hide them in the shed and pretend like I’d literally never bought them.
So I get it, the fear of buying the wrong thing is real!
I’ve loved interiors, renovations, decorating and pretty much anything to do with the home for a very long time now. I can’t lie though, when I first started out as an interior designer and a client asked ‘what would you do?’.
Oh gosh, the fear was real. What if I get it wrong!
You see, here’s the thing. I got it wrong before I trained as an interior designer. I got it wrong in my own home. I completely understand the mind games of going back and forth and almost ripping your hair out trying to make a decision. Sometimes, I’d just freeze with fear and NOT make a decision and other times it felt like a game of eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Either way, these are both really crappy ways to make decisions on what sofa you should be buying.
If you’re there right now, if you’re in that indecisive spot that’s really uncomfortable, then this workshop is perfect for you.
I wanted to break down the mystery surrounding design and decoration and to give you a really simple tool that you can use time and again.
In this workshop we tap into your subconscious, and intuition, so you can build your own roadmap to the design that suits you. I’d love you to join me on this 4 week journey to discovering your own design style and aesthetic.
