What Does Walking And Interior Design Have To Do With Your Home Renovation Or Remodeling Project?

One Step At A Time

What does walking and Interior Design have to do with Your Home Renovation or Remodeling Project? 

So now you're wondering what does the photo of a person wearing sneakers have to do with interior design or with you
Valid point. But as usual, I have a story to tell you that explains it all!
The person in the photo above is of me on my daily walk. I walk to keep fit, to de-stress, and to listen to podcasts about Internet marketing and wellness. But what I'm really doing is the process of keeping fit and the process of keeping knowledgeable and less stressed. 
Stress? How is being an interior designer stressful. Yes, I work in an industry that creates beautiful furnishings. Yes, I'm my own boss. But if you followed me on a typical day you would see a woman who is juggling projects, meeting clients and vendors, handling scores of paperwork, etc. In other words, I wear many hats while I handle the process of interior design. 
My process is the way I approach each client's project. It's a systematized way to stay on track, to keep the project moving in the right direction. As long as I stay in process, I can control or lessen the stress of managing many projects. 

Lucky for me that I like the process. I like the record keeping and research almost as much as creating a room concept. Lucky for my clients that I start the day with a walk and feel less stressed at the get-go.

 If you're planning on building a new house, renovating an existing house or room, or remodeling a kitchen and bath you need two important things. First, a daily exercise plan like a walk to keep you less stressed. Second, you need a team to support you all the way through your project. If you already have a few thoughts going like the ones below, it may be time to find help before it's too late. 
 Questions or thoughts that you might have or worries that keep you up at night might be:
  • I'm not sure what to do next
  • Afraid I'll make the wrong choices
  • Everyone wants to put their 2 cents in
  • I'm not creative
  • Decorating scares me
  • We don't agree on how to decorate
  • I feel I need a professional opinion
 Maybe I missed a few worries! What is on your list today?
