Ask The Designer: “Do you Buy New or Shop Your Home?”
Do you Buy New or Shop Your Home? This weeks Ask The Designer featured Question comes from: Sam Hay@Raggity Bits
Okay Sam moment of truth, Do you Buy New or Shop Your Home?
Sam- “I always shop my own home first. It’s amazing how moving things around can completely change the style of a room. I try to style rooms first with things that we already have and then if I’m stuck I might bring something old back to new by painting it, using material to cover it. The possibilities are endless!”
When designing a room I do like to clear the slate so to speak and start fresh. I find that sometimes the emotional attachment that you have to an object can cloud the designer eye. That being said, I have been known to rework pieces I already own into the room, as that makes sense for a budget friendly redesign. I see no problem in reusing what you have if 1. You love the item or it has a sentimental attachment for you 2. The item is still current and in good condition 3. The item will work within the perimeters of the existing room design.
