The Design Fairies – now that’s working together!
The Design Team for the Berry-Crawford Family
I believe in collaborative interior design – developing a team approach to achieve the best results in home decoration. I will speak more about this philosophy as time goes on, but let me say this:
I don’t subscribe to the approach used by many of the more sensational television home-makeover shows where they send the homeowners away during the room or home makeover project and bring them back for the surprise reveal.
You may remember one episode that became know as "Crying Pam", when a woman broke down in tears at the surprise reveal of her living room. The designer ignored her request not to touch the fireplace facade, the only thing she did not want to be changed in the room.
To achieve no-tears design, homeowners need to be in charge of their project; after all, they are the ones who will live with the results when the designers have gone home!
