Your remodel should not reflect a fad, a movement or your neighbors’ attitude. It should be all you. You make choices every day that are great clues to your personal style, the clothes you wear, the car you drive, the drink you order, the greeting card you buy, the screen saver on your computer, and a zillion other choices you make on a day to day basis.
PERSONAL STYLE IS ALL ABOUT THE THINGS YOU LOVE
To get a great head start on defining your style, so you can ultimately share it with a designer, it really helps to put together a collection of things you love. Include everything. Surf the web. Get shots of your favorite kinds of furniture, room settings, paintings and posters. Cut out pictures from magazines and not just remodeling magazines, but People, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and anything else that defines the style you are drawn to, even if it’s not an interior shot. Have a look at artifacts from your travels. A rug, statue, or even a snapshot of a garden, landscape or cityscape can help define your style and could be the spark that creates a loving space that is uniquely you.
TRANSLATING THE THINGS YOU LOVE INTO THE PERFECT SPACE
The first time you meet with a designer, bring your style collection with you. Explain why you chose what you did. Fear not—you won’t be considered foolish. Your elements of style will speak to him or her on a deeper level than words. A good designer will take your input, process it and translate it into a new living space that’s all about you—your style and personality. You and your Waypoint authorized designer will be off to a great start.
