Get Ready to Rock Your Interior Call: 5 Must-Have Tips

Hey there, interior enthusiasts! Are you gearing up for an Interior Call?

Well, you're in for a treat! Whether you're tackling a full-blown makeover or just need a quick design fix, an Interior Call is your ticket to a beautifully transformed space.

But before you dive headfirst into the call, you'll want to make sure you're well-prepared

to make the most of your time with your interior designer. So, let's talk about the five tips you absolutely need to follow.

1. Photos, Photos, Photos!

Imagine trying to describe your dream vacation destination without pictures. Impossible, right? Well, the same goes for your Interior Call. Pictures are worth a thousand words, and they're the way to describing your style and needs. Snap some photos of your space from different angles and in various lighting conditions. Include shots of any problem areas that you want to address, like that awkward corner that's been crying out for attention.

Don't be shy – the more, the merrier! It helps your interior designer understand your space better and ensures that they can offer the best advice. So, channel your inner paparazzi and start clicking away. Remember, we're in the digital age, so you can easily share these photos during your Interior Call, making it a breeze to discuss your ideas.


2. Measurements: Give attention to the Details

Ever heard the phrase "measure twice, cut once"? Well, it applies to interior design too! Accurate measurements are the backbone of any successful design project. Grab your trusty tape measure and write down the dimensions of your room. Measure wall lengths, ceiling heights, and window and door placements. For furniture that you plan to keep or add, measure their dimensions as well.

Believe me, these numbers will be your secret weapon. They'll help your interior designer suggest furniture layouts, rug sizes, and lighting fixtures that fit like a glove. Plus, there's nothing worse than ordering a stunning piece of furniture, only to find out it doesn't fit through your doorway – yikes!


3. Mood Board Mania

Have you ever been asked to describe your style, only to find yourself drowning in a sea of vague words like "cozy," "modern," or "eclectic"? Fear not! Mood boards are here to save the day. Think of them as visual dictionaries for design styles. Gather images, colors, and materials that resonate with you and your vision for the space. It could be photos from magazines, Pinterest boards, or even snapshots of spaces you've visited and loved. Creating a mood board not only clarifies your style but also serves as a fantastic point of reference during your Interior Call.

Remember, your interior designer is like a design detective, and your mood board will help them crack the case of your dream interior. They'll have a better understanding of your preferences and can provide tailored suggestions that speak directly to your heart.

My personal secret tip is to not only show me what you love but also what you don't love. This can be a lot easier for you to start with while finding your style.


4. List everything

What's an Interior Call without lists? It could be a shopping list, your questions list or your wishlist! Write down everything you want to ask in the call or achieve in the space. It could be as simple as adding more storage, upgrading your lighting, or revamping your color scheme.

Include both big and small ideas, and don't forget to prioritize. Your interior designer will appreciate knowing which aspects are non-negotiable and which can be tackled in the long term. Plus, a wishlist helps keep you on track and ensures you don't miss out on any design dreams.

For example

Don't forget to ask:

What do we need to build the cabinet?


5. A Dash of Personality and Openness

Maybe it's a collection of quirky knick-knacks

you've gathered over the years or a fondness for bold, vibrant colors.

Also, be open to new ideas and suggestions. Your interior designer is your partner in this creative journey, and they may introduce you to concepts and styles you've never considered. It's like going to a restaurant and trusting the chef's recommendations – sometimes, the most delightful surprises come from stepping out of your comfort zone.


Now that you have your five tips in hand, you're ready to rock your Interior Call! Remember, this isn't just a consultation; it's a collaboration between you and your designer to transform your space into a masterpiece. So, click those photos, measure twice, compile a mood board, create a list, and let your personality shine. Your dream interior is just a call away!

But before I sign off, here's a bonus tip: don't forget to have fun! Designing your space should be an enjoyable journey filled with excitement and creativity. So, grab that cup of coffee or tea, settle in comfortably, and let the interior magic unfold. Cheers to your upcoming Interior Call – may it be filled with inspiration, laughter, and a dash of design brilliance!
