I say it all the time, but I have been blessed with some of the best clients. The Frizzelle family was no exception. I was so honored when I got a call from Taylor, who wanted to surprise his sweet wife, Danielle, with a fresh design for their home.
If you follow me on social media, you get to see my side of the design process, but I want you to hear from our clients, as they tell us about the design process, so we will be sharing our client's experience here on the blog over the next few weeks. We hope you enjoy hearing what they have to say about working with us!
Please describe your home before working with Southern Farmhouse Designs. What was your main problem with your home that caused you to hire a designer/decorator? What did you want or need for the space?
Our home was not a home. It was plain, cold, and uninviting. We were looking for an inviting home that when we had people over we felt comfortable sitting in the living room and kitchen.
Had you worked with a designer prior working with SFD? And what was that experience like?
SFD was our first designer. The experience was like no other. Ashley and her team decorated the house while I was at work and she even walked my dog for me. I was so anxious at work all day to see the progress. The wait was worth it and the result was phenomenal. Our now home looked like a house from a magazine.
How did you find Southern Farmhouse Designs? And why did you choose to work with us on your project?
My husband was searching around on Instagram because he knew that decorating was a not my cup of tea. He secretly contacted SFD and before I knew it she was headed over to help us with our space.
What was your favorite part of the design process?
ALL OF IT!
Do you feel your home reflects your style?
Absolutely, Ashley is great at listening and coming up with the perfect style.
What do you see as the major difference in doing the project yourself & hiring a professional?
Everything. I have tried many times and end up with a Pinterest fail.
What value does a designer bring to the process?
The designer brings all the value to the process. They analyze the space, configure the dimensions, shop, and create a masterpiece.
Many people say that interior design is a luxury service & it’s too expensive. What do you say to your friends & family who believe that they might not be able to afford it?
I would say there are many packages and design options to fit any budget. That is one thing I love about Southern Farmhouse Designs. They truly open the doors for anyone to afford their services.
Would you hire a designer again?
Without a doubt.
Anything else you’d like to share with our readers about working with Southern Farmhouse Designs?
Working with SFD has been a blessing. My husband and I work hard and at the end of the day, we sit on the couch, look around and feel like our house is a home. Not to mention, the baby nursery SFD created is unimaginably gorgeous. It will also be easy to transform into a toddler room soon!
