Homebuilding & Renovating – Do you need an interior designer?

So, do you? It’s a good question isn’t it? And one i’ve discussed a kabillion times on here before. But I wanted to show you a recent article from Homebuilding & Renovating magazine’s June edition where myself and the “work-wife”, Fiona Duke (from Fiona Duke Interiors) are asked this very question.

Interior design workshops are something i’ve been planning for AGES. Like, a LONG time. And now, finally with the support of the Interior Design Collective, they’re actually gonna happen. I can’t flipping wait! Yee-ha! I know there are lots of Interiors-y workshops out there at the moment already, but we’re tapping into a bit of the market I don’t think’s been catered for right now. A lot of you are just about to undertake large house projects, period renovations, bathroom/kitchen refurbs, and more than ever, people are trying to do most of the work themselves, to save money. Makes sense! But wouldn’t you like a bit of advice? Advice on where to start? Which bits to do first. How to nail a layout. Where to put the radiators. What lighting does a room need for example.
