Have you ever gotten into the mind of a designer and learned about their creative process? Although I am not a formally educated interior designer, I believe we are all designers in our own right. To quote myself, “Style is about reflecting your personality in a way in which your home – your environment rises up to greet you.” Recently, I was invited to provide my opinion as a guest for Terry’s blinds. What a privilege to be offered to share my perspective with!
As I was preparing the content for the post, I reviewed some of the other guests posts that were listed on the site. It was fabulous to read others processes and ideas for what makes them the creatives, the designers they are today. One of my favorite questions to read, was “What inspires you”. With their individual responses, one can determine if the designer is very tactical, visual, or a combination of both. It got me to thinking. If you were to hire one of these designer, what type would work the best with you? Who would you more closely relate? These questions would actually provide a great foundation for selecting a potential designer. As a comparison, it is like the Myer’s Brigg test for designers!
With that said, here are the questions that you could offer up a potential designer for hire to answer:
- In your own words, describe your unique style and creative aesthetic.
- When starting a new project, what is your creative process?
- Out of the creative people you have worked with, who is it that you respect and admire the most?
- When looking for inspiration is there a particular thing you do to get inspired?
- What has brought you to this point in your career?
