Do you know I’ve been in the design business my whole life? I grew up in a family of designers and many principles of design and building come quite naturally to me. While fashions change over the years, the constant basics of what makes good design work remains constant. The same is true for our communication. While our message has not changed much, the way we reach our customers has. Word of mouth has always been a big player in the success of our interior design business, but with the advent of social media and today’s generation’s ability to access everything with the touch of a button, we find ourselves eager to share through blogs, videos, newsletters, and social networks.
We realize how easy it looks to execute design, an idea largely perpetuated by design shows that take a room from blah to ahh! in just under one hour. The reality is that uncovering a homeowner’s lifestyle, tastes, and desires and executing that in a functional and aesthetically pleasing, timeless design is a process.
In order to help you get started with that process, we hope to utilize online forums to provide you with tips and tricks that you’ll find useful, introduce you to members of our design team so you can find the right match for your project, and invite your questions so you can make confident, informed decisions when it comes to stylistically or functionally changing your surroundings.
We’ve just completed a video shoot and I’m excited to share it with you. In our first videos, I’ll introduce you to Valerie Smith, who has an extensive background in construction and design, Akesha Patterson, whose passion for modern design is translated in all she does, and Juanita Hulsey, a senior designer and operations manager who has been an instrumental part of Locklear Interiors for over a decade.
I invite you to get to know these and our other outstanding designers at our YouTube Channel, peruse our website, and get in touch with us to ask questions. Please stay tuned for more upcoming video introductions. We’re confident we’ll pair you with the designer who can really bring your style to life!
