I AM MY OWN WORST CLIENT

I hate to admit… I am my own worst client.

When you choose to work with an Interior Designer, you are working with a design expert who has talent, education and experience in their field.

I’m often reminding my clients to “trust the process” and go with our vision, selections, and design decisions. After all, you choose Lockwood Interiors because you have viewed our projects online and liked what you saw.

I know it sounds a lot easier than it is because I have my own issues with trusting experts. For instance, when I go to the hairdresser I bombard her with pictures of haircuts and a diatribe of details that I want.

She’s patient and she listens to me, but at some point, I have to sit back, relax, be quiet (hence the gag) and turn the scissors over to her. Sometimes I even make her job harder than it should be because I’ve given myself a little unauthorized trim. So believe me – I get it!

Keep in mind that even a small change can make a big difference in the outcome.

Here’s an analogy: what if you were having surgery… would you tell the Doctor how to do their job? Would you suggest which instrument they use? Would you really want to stay awake to participate? No, you have to breathe in the happy gas and let the professional do their job because you want the intended results.

Unfortunately, when I graduated from design school I was not given a license to prescribe anesthesia to my clients. So you’re just going to have to trust us without the sedatives!

Leave the worry and decision making to us; we promise you won’t be disappointed!
