New Home Interior Designs: Where to start? 

With so many ideas, articles, influencers and magazines flooding your news feed – it can be challenging to figure out what interior styles to go for. From minimalism to art deco to art nouveau and everything in between, it can be hard to pick what you would want your new surroundings to feel and look like. 

The best way to start your interior design journey is to create a vision or pinterest board for your new home interior of all the luxurious and unique furnishings, styles and decor you have always imagined living within. Once you have your vision board created, build on the smaller finishing touches you love like colors, paints, rugs etc. The vision board will help translate the tone of your style and how you would like your home to feel. It’s also super helpful to show when speaking with interior design firms too.

New Home Interior Designs: Which styles and trends to go for? 

Interior styles and trends can be fast paced and especially overwhelming when choosing a design to suit you, your needs and functionality of your home. With a sea of choices, it’s difficult to know what interior designs and furniture you would want to live within for years to come. 

You may feel your styles are cluttered, being drawn to varied decor elements and trends that magazines are suggesting you try. If you love interior designs, like we do, then we truly understand how overwhelming the market can be. 

From an old world look, jewel tones, moody and dramatic interior styles and beautifully curved and rounded edges – we have combined our top tips in our Interior Design Trends To Watch Out For In 2023 article which will give you a head start in interior styles to watch out for this year. 

If paint color is your forte, why not consider starting with these directional paint ideas we think will be a hit this year. Our recommendations are warm neutral tones, earth tones, subtle clay colors, vibrant reds and oranges bursting with energy, warm versatile yellow shades or perhaps try deeper more intense blue-greens for a calmer, more tranquil look. We have our helpful guide for Paint Color Trends To Look For In 2023 article here.  

New Interior Designs: How do I choose Interior Designers for my home? 

In a world where there are so many interior designers to choose from – the variety can be overwhelming and it can seem like a maze of interior design firms to select from. 

Below we cover three very common questions that clients ask before hiring their ideal interior designer. Let’s begin….

How do I find the right interior designer for me? 

    • Word of mouth is a very powerful tool in choosing a designer for your new home. Reviews are a great way to read public feedback but word of mouth is the most reliable source. Another great way to get recommendations for interior design firms is to ask people in the know, from real estate agents, interior furniture companies and employees at your local building stores. They should all be able to give you great recommendations. 

What is the difference between an interior designer and a decorator? 

    • The short answer is that interior designers design and create functional and beautiful living spaces keeping your unique vision in mind, as well as a multitude of other great aspects (skip to question 4 to see what we offer or check out our residential interior design services). Painters and decorators are hired to paint, wallpaper and add finishes to the outside and interior of your home. A decorator can also be used to add to your home environment, using paint, lighting and other minor finishing touches.

How do I choose an interior design firm? 

As mentioned, picking from a sea of interior design firms can become extremely time consuming. We suggest working down our helpful list below to determine how to choose the right interior designer for you: 

    1. Take a peek at reviews of interior design firms in regional or national magazines. Read who they recommend. 

    1. Check out public reviews. Reviews will give you a good and truthful understanding of how good the interior design firm is. 

    1. Look at their portfolio and see if their interior styles and designs are inline with your visions and aesthetics. 

    1. Take a call and talk to them. If you are on the fence or need more information – set up a quick call to ask your chosen questions and see if they could be the right firm for your new home.  

    1. Talk budget. Lastly, budgets and fees also need to be inline with both parties. Have your maximum budget mapped out ready for the call.
