How to Find the Perfect Interior Designer For You
Expert Tips for Hiring an Interior Designer who Suits your Style.
Free designer matchmaking services, such as those offered by Designer Premier, do a lot of the heavy lifting for you. “I take the personality piece, scope, aesthetic, and budget and narrow it down to two or three different designers who I think are going to be a great fit. Then I set up interviews,” says Designer Premier owner Marina Dagenais. All you have to do is show up.
As with any matchmaking endeavor, personal preferences come into play. Dagenais says, “The most important thing is the personality piece. People search on the web and see somebody with the look they want. But if you can’t communicate with your designers, it doesn’t matter if they do the exact look you want. They can’t get into your head and design for you. If they can’t communicate with you, they can’t ask the right questions and design a nurturing environment.”
Finding a designer “just for you” just became a whole lot simpler. One of only three in the country, Marina Dagenais, also known as the “Design Matchmaker” and Principal of Designer Premier, is making magic happen in Colorado and beyond. Matching clients’ needs and personalities with prescreened and appropriate professionals, Marina is taking the headache out of personal projects by matchmaking to industry specialists.
