A few weeks ago, Halie Rosenberg, a Growers guest contributing writer, contacted me. As an interior designer in Seattle, I was intrigued with her story concept for the blog, http://www.growersandnomads.com. After some conversation with Halie, I shared the story of ‘clicking’ with a client around a mutual love of cooking and the story unfolded.
The outcome of the conversation, Halie’s article, related the essence of a successful client and designer relationship: listening carefully. In this instance, I learned about the importance of family gatherings, large and small, and how the kitchen was a central feature. When I listened to my client, I immediately saw the kitchen and it’s design with two islands ( many cooks), lot of seats and the necessary appliances.
To Halie’s question, “What element(s) turn a space into a happy home?” I answered, “A comfortable home is all about you—your lifestyle and personality that you want to express.”
If you want that perfect home for entertaining your friends and family, the team at Faith Sheridan Design Group is here to help. 206.437.8000.
