Looking for an interior designer or interior decorator can be overwhelming if you are not sure

ready for the first inspection?
This document gives you answers to frequently asked questions in regards to interior design,
interior decorating, colour consulting and property styling.
It will help you finding the right designer for your interior design and decorating projects and
eventually create your individual style in your home.
What is the difference between an interior designer and an interior stylist?
You may have asked yourself this question already when facing a building or renovation project.
Do I need an interior designer, an interior decorator, a colour consultant or an interior stylist?
The answer is that it depends on the scope of the project.
An interior designer is a skilled professional who is designing interior environments according to
your briefing. The interior designer either modifies what already exists (renovation) or provides
an entirely new design for a space (new build). In this case the interior designer works closely
with the architect and comes in at an early stage of the project. Interior designers work either
along a team in design firm or on their own. interior designers
What is the job of an interior stylist? An interior stylist is a designer or consultant in a field
subject to changes in style, especially fashion or interior decoration. An interior stylist cultivates
or maintains any particular style and in most cases stylist are finders, keepers and collectors of
beautiful objects.
The interior stylist can help you finding your own style, creating beautiful interiors that are
unique and meaningful. This can be achieved with the simplest things and does not have to be
expensive. The only thing you need to do is keep your eyes open to beautiful things in nature,
architecture, design, museums, art, exhibitions, books, textiles and travel. There is only one
rule: Only collect or buy things that mean something to you!
How does a colour consultation work?
The colour consultation focuses on creating a colour scheme for a specific room or space or the
whole house according to your briefing. A qualified colour consultant can help you with interior
and exterior colour schemes.

Prior to designing a colour scheme for you the colour consultant should always talk to you
about the mood and atmosphere you would like to achieve in your space. He will explain to you
the differences between the paint companies and their products and choose the right product
for your needs. After designing the colour scheme you will receive a written recommendation
including a specification sheet and brushouts ready for your painter to start.
Why is it important to seek advice from a designer when choosing colours?
Colour is the most powerful tool when it comes to non-verbal communication and the design
element that makes a space come alive. Colour brings individuality in a space and it is one of
the most useful tools to master when finding your own style.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, says in her book Pantone
Guide to Communicating with Color: "Among other uses, color stimulates and works
synergistically with all of the senses, symbolizes abstract concepts and thoughts, expresses
fantasy or wish fulfillment, recalls another time or place and produces an aesthetic or
emotional response."
When choosing a colour for a room or house it is important to think about the mood and
atmosphere you would like to achieve. Is it a dark room or flooded with natural light? In which
direction is the room facing? How are the proportions? Do you live in a small apartment or a
contemporary newly built house with open plan living areas? All this needs to be considered
when choosing colours for a space. interior designers
If you are overwhelmed by the choice of colours available - yes, there are thousands on the
market - how can you start finding your personal colour scheme?
For some people it is a longer journey, for others it comes more naturally. The most important
thing is to take some time, open your eyes, walk around your home and absorb the colour
combinations you see. Then start gathering all the pieces you love. This can be anything from
old porcelain, travel souvenirs, photographs, artwork, clothes, tear sheets from magazines,
fabric swatches, stationary, a collection of stones, feathers or glass objects.
And don't forget nature as inspiration for a colour scheme (interior or exterior). If you live near
the ocean, shades of blues and greens can be used to link your interior with its surroundings.
Flowers, butterflies, stones, shells, driftwood are fantastic inspirations for colour schemes.
Once you have gathered all your beloved treasures in one spot, play around with the pieces,
group them by colours and you will see a colour palette emerge. This "moodboard" is a great
starting point for your interior designer, interior stylist or colour consultant to help you creating

an individual and personal space, a home that reflects who you are and a place that you love
coming home to.
Stylist's tip: Before you start painting always buy a test pot and paint a large sheet of paper or
cardboard (one square metre) with your colour. Tape it to the walls in your room and study it
for a couple of days. Look at it in daylight and artificial light. This is very important as colours
change depending on the light, the orientation of the room, other colours in the room and
spatial elements like furniture and artwork for example.
