Paging through interior design magazines and dreaming up all the changes you would love to make in your home is, in a word, fun. Turning your home design dreams into a reality is still an enjoyable process, but also a challenging one, especially when money and final choices come into play.

The following five tips ensure you hire an interior designer who’s interested in your vision, your budget concern and your happiness with the final product.

1. Determine your expectations of an interior designer.


There’s no right way to collaborate with an interior designer. In fact, the expectations of your partnership with an interior designer set the parameters of your home design project. Thing about the following questions:
  • Do you want to be involved with every little design decision, or are you more interested in adding input on big picture issues?
  • Do you prefer an interior designer to show you every option available or do you expect them to offer you a narrowed-down selection?
  • Are you looking for total guidance, or do you have an eye for interior design and just need help with planning and resources?

By answering these questions regarding your expectations, you create a solid foundation for a successful working relationship with your interior designer.

What’s the first rule of interior design?

There are no rules in interior design.

It’s important to not get boxed-in to one mode of thinking when it comes to choosing a style for your home’s interior design.

Mix up your furniture to avoid the cliché of having your living room look like a showroom floor. For example, contemporary/modern home design is given richness and depth by adding vintage antiques and flea market finds.

The best rooms always appear as though they’ve been collected over time; one creative design trick to accomplish this is mixing “the old” with “the new”.

Here are some interior design projects to help you stir up your style and make a home that’s intriguing, inviting and uniquely you:

Found Objects

Modern furniture benefits from contrast. To bring animation or essence into a room, incorporate interesting rustic or vintage finds. Antique accents juxtaposed with sleek modern furniture create an intriguing aesthetic.

It’s fairly easy to rack up a considerable amount of spending for home remodel projects. Thankfully, they are plenty of interior design ideas to cut home remodeling costs without cutting corners or settling for cheaply made alternatives.

To save a little on each of your home remodel ventures, you need to think strategically about design, materials and timing. Consider the following three interior design tricks and tips to help you keep your home remodeling budget in check:

1. Revamp Accessories Around Your Home

A home remodel doesn’t require knocking down walls or wiping the slate clean. One simple, budget-friendly way to spruce up a room is to change up your accessories, such as pillows, artwork, accent pieces and rugs.

Purchase new pillow covers for a pop of color or an added textural element in a room. Hang two mirrors in the same room opposite each other to create the illusion of a larger expansive space. Put up new photos or artwork, or simply change out or paint the frames of your current artwork for a quick, frugal transformation.

By adding new accent pieces, throw rugs, switch plates and window treatments, you have the power to completely transform a room without even moving a piece of furniture.

Home Design Trends: Juxtaposing Rustic And Modern Touches

Posted by Lisa Roth

Modern rustic home design has become a new American classic. No longer reserved for modern warehouse lofts in city dwellings, modern rustic design has become a go-to trend for anyone who enjoys a mix of styles.

Modern rustic – as an interior design style – blends older, farmhouse features with modern architecture and contemporary features. When these two styles come together, the result is a warm, inviting home design that contains character, natural materials, clean lines and modern conveniences.

Successfully mixing rustic elements with modern touches is achieved through balance – offsetting heavier-feeling furnishings with a metered sleekness that has a contemporary edge.

Create the right modern rustic balance for your home design by following these basic interior design principles for:

Modern Rustic Flooring

For home decor to reflect a modern rustic design, flooring is going to be one of your most important considerations. Flooring should bring together a blend of the two styles, setting the stage for the rest of your home design project.
  • Hardwood tile floors are now coming in larger formats (12 x 24, 18 x 25) with limited varnishes and paints, creating a clean, modern feel with the look of something more rustic.

  • Cleft-faced slate tiles in gray or black give a clean edge with a textured, almost-weathered appearance.

  • French limestone tiles are very durable and have a unique texture, yet they also feature a crisp, contemporary edge.

One interior design trick for modern rustic flooring is to carry it throughout your entire home, so rooms are unified.

As a homeowner looking to revamp your living spaces, it’s likely you are dealing with a number of requirements, challenges and expectations. When working with an interior design firm to bring your visions to fruition, collaborative design results in the best design.

Taking on larger home design projects means there are a lot of elements that require input from the client (that’s you!), an interior designer, an architect, contractors and tradespersons. Each person is a facet of the collaborative whole, and the design process runs smoother when everyone is working together.

Here’s why:

1. Interior Design Diversity Meets Complete Communication

A cohesive home design is the result of people with various skills coming together to find the best ways to achieve a look and complete a project. Diversity works for interior design during all segments of the design process.

With a collaborative design approach, through a lot of interactive dialogue between all participants of the project, you’re able to access every aspect of the final design at once. This means that everyone stays on task and on the same page.
