Home Design: How Confident Are You? Main Boise Home Design
Discovering your style is quite possibly the most difficult and important task a home owner will undertake. Interior Design is a science, more than anything, one of psychology. A person has to be willing to venture into self discovery in order to make the investment worthy of their tastes and expectations. Here is the first step in the right direction.


Home Design: How Confident Are You?

  The interior designer is a problem solver, artist and emotional guide for other people.  They lend their natural abilities of spatial awareness, design elements and creative problem solving to mold an architectural structure into the purposeful occupancy it is needed to be.   I am convinced that these attributes have levels of potential within all of us.  It really begs the question: How confident are you?  -- In your ability to learn about yourself, -- In your understanding of how it all “works”, --In your desire to try? 

 Home Design really begs the question:  As a source of shelter, relationship, structure and intimacy what are your expectations of your home?

 Once a person can find the deepest, most honest answers to those questions, there are abundant resources to guide you on your quest to discovering what makes your home your castle.

 You must begin with “The Dream”!  Find pictures, pictures, pictures.  Begin by looking through catalogs, magazines and the web.  Create a collection of pictures of rooms that you are extremely attracted to.  Now, ask yourself what you expect out of your home and what it is about each picture that fits within your expectations.   As you complete that process you will be well on your way! 

 Some helpful websites to visit:

 Remember, learning about your style is a process and hopefully it is always a changing one.  Just for fun, please visit

Type "style quiz" in the search box, select the "What's Your Style? Quiz" and play along with the psychology of it all.

 Apparently I am a “Classic”. I am drawn to timeless shapes and colors that never go out of style.  I like my patterns crisp and buildings traditional.  I enjoy well crafted furniture that will look as gorgeous in 10 years as it does today. 

 While the test is anything but scientific, discovering yourself and your style should be playful.  So… What’s your style?
