It’s quite simple, theses shots are put together but experts in their field, and unless you have some expert knowledge, training or a creative conceptual mind it makes it very difficult to achieve the same result.
So, my advice to you is, invest in an Interior designer or Stylist for your current or future project. Most will charge between $110.00 to $150.00 per hour, this may seem like a lot of money but they will look at what you have with a fresh eye and assess your needs and likes, you can usually get them to do a mood board or a colour palate in a day or two, to bring together your vision, your outlay for services may be somewhere between $800.00 to $1000.00, but this drives direction for the build and the colours and finishes to be used.
Armed with just this information you have a great base to start choosing furniture, finishes, floor coverings and window furnishings just to start. It helps with what will work in the space you have, and the feel, tone and textures to be used in the space. It can mean the difference between having to buy new furniture and being able to incorporate your existing pieces and items that you love but aren’t sure how they can work in with your new look.
As a general rule most of our clients will invest about 1% of the value of their build with the interior design team, and we find that they save this amount in time and stress alone.
