Every design is different - but the process should be the same.
Creating beautiful spaces is instinct, passion, and patience mixed with art (and a lot of measuring). While the creative process may take a variety of turns, the project process should be easily followed, repeatable, and ensure ease for all parties involved.
Creating unique designs is a gift that changes the lives
of the clients who hire an interior designer.
And, delivering beautiful designs is not nearly as easy as it appears on reality television.
The number of details involved in managing a project is overwhelming
and can be confusing, expensive, and frustrating for both the designer and the client, and we only see a few minutes of it on our favorite interior design shows.
What’s really required are standardized processes and procedures to create a business that runs smoothly and provides an excellent experience for all parties.
This is where The Interior Design Business Bakery comes in.
A year-long Coaching and Mentoring Program
where brilliant designers learn “the recipe” of how to run a thriving interior design business
that stands out from the rest.
