Interior Design Professional Lori Carpenter Reveals The Myths and Truths About Working with an Interior Designer On Influencers Radio

On a recent episode of Influencers Radio with Jack Mize, award-winning, full-service interior design professional Lori Carpenter discussed how she is helping busy homeowners create beautiful, comfortable, and inviting spaces that they can be proud of when entertaining family and friends.  And, more importantly, are a sanctuary for themselves that renews their souls, and they love to call home.

With the proliferation of home makeover shows that seem to be on TV every hour of every day comes some preconceived notions about home designers and the renovation process that just aren’t true… especially the misconception that hiring a designer costs too much money and takes too much time.

During the interview, Carpenter revealed how hiring a professional designer can actually save a busy homeowner both time and money while exposing some of the biggest myths about working with an interior design professional.

When asked about the common misconceptions people have about hiring a designer, Carpenter explained, “Well, there are several, but one I hear most is that designers force their ideas and their design style on clients. They’re not listening to what the homeowner wants, and not truly giving them the experience that makes them happy. As a designer, I’m going to drive off from their house and I want it to be a reflection of the client, their lifestyle, and I want it to be something that they feel comfortable and enjoy entertaining family and friends.”

Responding to a follow-up question about the fear some people have that they will end up with a house that feels more like a showroom than a comfortable home, Carpenter said,” We don’t want anything that we can’t live in. It is so important that your home is a reflection of you and your lifestyle. It needs to be comfortable. Home is where we build our memories. This is where everything happens in our lives, how we live it. And if our homes are comfortable and inviting, then our lives are going to be more comfortable and inviting. it’s so important to connect those two.”

While budgets are always considered, one of Carpenter’s top priorities is creating a beautiful space that reflects her client’s personality and style, while her exceptional customer service and attention to detail follows close behind in her efforts to provide a WOW experience for the homeowner.

Listening to this episode, it’s easy to understand why Carpenter is so highly regarded and trusted by corporate executives, business owners, doctors, lawyers, bankers, and other successful professionals for turning their house into a place they love to call home.
