When it comes to interior design, we could use a little help. An Elvis paint-by-numbers print and a Ping-Pong table are the two best pieces we currently have in our office, along with a massive beanbag chair and four identical couches that might be futons, but nobody is really sure. With that, we feel like we’ve summed up a good percentage of American living spaces: comfortable yet confused.
The reality is that most people know what they like, whether it’s by look or by feel, but don’t know how to bring everything together in a cohesive look. Noa Santos, co-founder of NYC design firm Home Polish, wants to make sure that if you need professional interior design help, you are able to use it wisely.
“By hiring a designer,” Noa says, “people try to put a brand stamp on their space without knowing who they are as a person.” They may be attracted to a name like David Bromstad or Emily Henderson, but unless they like ultra-modern and colorful spaces with custom wall art or spaces that make use of up-cycled antiques with a bright accent color, their space won’t truly represent them.
