It’s no secret that I’m passionate about interior design. Helping a client decipher what they truly want can sometimes be difficult, but so worth it. There’s nothing like that moment when the client enters the door to their new room and says, “You really got me”
My youngest niece will turn nine years old in a little over a month. Her early birthday request was to have a bedroom makeover. We had our first interior design consultation at YoZone. While we enjoyed our decadent treats, we discussed what she really wanted in her new, “big girl” room. We searched the internet for things that she loved and found quite a few items that gave me a good sense of her present style. After our consultation, we went to Lowe’s Home Improvement, and picked out some paint samples together. We talked about color and our mutual love of unicorns a lot that afternoon. While I was thrilled to have a unicorn theme, I also wanted her room to be able to grow with her. There’s always the possibility that she won’t love unicorns in a few years. 🙂 Maybe not though. I still do. 🙂 We also decided to flip flop bedrooms with her younger brother. We discussed the possibilities of this move with him and he was just as excited. It made it more fun for him, too.
After a few weeks of anticipation, today was reveal day. In all honesty, it was my favorite design job ever. The look on her face as she opened the door to her room was priceless. She loves it, and nothing makes the designer in me happier than the moment a client tells you how much they love their new room.
