What’s your #1 design tip?
The design tip I cannot stress enough is that when combining patterns to make sure that you keep in mind to have different scales of fabrics. I have a lot of clients that like all different kinds of patterns but want to make sure they can combine them. I tell them they can as long as they vary in scale. You can have a large pattern on a chair but then a smaller pattern on a rug and vice-versa; as long as you don’t have multiple patterns that hold the same weight in scale.
What is your favorite part of designing a client’s home?
My favorite part is making their house into a home. I love helping them bring their wants and needs to life. I also love seeing their reactions when I can make their dreams come true.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I find my inspiration from what is around me. I can find it from a piece of art or nature and even fashion. I find inspiration from all over. The world is all color and design so it is really easy to find my inspiration anywhere.
Shannon was extremely knowledgeable on everything from the options that were available on each item to where it was on the sales floor. She was informative, yet not pushy. She was very patient with us as we decided on the styles, fabrics, and colors. She is even going to meet the delivery truck to help us when the furniture arrives. What a stellar example of customer service! We are very impressed.
I had an amazing home design consultation with Shannon. I choose several fabrics in the store but once she presented them in my home, they just were not the right color or fabric. I made another consult appointment in the store. I always felt very welcome when I re-visited the store. The visual presentation also gave me a much needed perspective on my purchasing decision.
The designer, Shannon, did an excellent job of listening to our tastes and suggesting appropriate fabrics for the furniture pieces we selected for our family room. She also did a nice job of selecting furniture pieces and a layout for our living room! Thanks Shannon!
