July 26, 2017

 For some, the mere thought of hiring an interior designer scares the bejesus out of them. Thanks to their notorious portrayal in movies, many view interior designers as tsk-tsking divas, turning their noses up at everything they see, and charging fees that could even choke a millionaire. That’s total baloney we say. As a company that frequently works with interior designers, believe us when we say that they are the sweetest folks in the trade, always bursting with passion and creativity, and helping us unearth new things about our own potential!

But you’d wonder why are we talking about all this here? Well, that’s because a lot of us house-proud folks find ourselves in a jam when it comes to home decoration project.

Ever heard about the habit of successful people of journaling their thoughts and pledging themselves to a goal? Apparently, it’s a good habit and you should try it too.

Make flow-charts, schematics, diagrams or just dash down what you plan to accomplish in the coming few days, and trust us, all the plans of men and mice that have been going astray will magically move along the right course.

PS: Please just don’t give it a lick and a promise. We often get seduced by the initial rush of embarking on a project but often lose the acceleration as we move ahead. Document your decoration process every day, without fail.
