Discover your style: Fine & Country Interior Design

Discover your style: Fine & Country Interior Design

Despite the perception of using an interior designer to furnish your home as a luxury, it is often less expensive and more efficient than navigating the endless options and complexities involved in such a substantial project.

Picking your style can seem overwhelming. An interior designer will charge you a fee, and in return you will gain access to heavily discounted trade prices, expert advice to help you avoid costly mistakes and someone to help you find your style. These savings frequently outweigh the cost of using a professional. Despite that, many are still afraid to engage a professional due to the fear of one daunting question: “What sort of style do you like?”

To help you answer that simple, yet overwhelming question, we have put together the top questions to ask yourself. Along with some suitable answers to help you identify and describe your style preferences. And don’t worry, even professionals struggle to settle on one answer to all of them!
