Since I have recently hired a fabulous stylist to help me pull my wardrobe together, I heard that answer and started thinking how that wouldn’t help me one bit to have someone tell me to ‘buy what I love and what looks good on me’. There are many, many items that fall into that category which is why I wanted a professional to help me take my ‘look’ to the next level as well as help me buy the clothes that work for me, my lifestyle and my business.
Since then, I notice when interior designers in interviews have similar philosophies like “Buy what you love and it’ll all work out” I get a little annoyed. And don’t get me wrong, I know there are a great many inspirational tips and ideas we all read in blogs and magazines and our homes get happier and prettier. Fundamentally though, here’s my question. When you see an interview with yet another designer saying ‘Buy what you love. . . your home should reflect who you are. . . ‘ does this help you? Inspire you to run out and do just that or. . . what?’
Please post your answer below, I’d love to hear your opinion.
