Written as a guide to help clients work better with professionals, How To Work With An Interior Designer answers many of the questions homeowners may have for designers, including how a designer can save them money and how to get the most out of a designer.
Author Judy Sheridan offers helpful tips and advice throughout the text, such as keeping photographs of furnishings in a file-by-room system.
There is also discussion on the differences between design in reality and design on reality television that was written to help the client recognize the difference. Included in the appendix are client letters, contracts and kitchen sketch samples, all designed to create the most comfortable design experience possible.
With checklists, wish lists and lists regarding when to hire a decorator or what a designer should have at an interview, Sheridan pulls together the knowledge and information of many years of experience to not only abate the client’s fears, but also provide designers with insight into clients’ needs when working in this partnership.
