Which Interior Design Firm in Montecito Is Perfect for Me?

Numerous interior design firms in Montecito guarantee excellent results, but the standards and skills differ. You want a firm that meets and surpasses your expectations, and below are some pointers to note when selecting the ideal interior design firm.  

What Is Your Budget?

Affordability should be at the top of your list when choosing an interior design firm Montecito or any other service provider. How much you can afford is a big deal when scaling up your home because it can determine whether you get quality designing or not. 

Whichever path you take, your budget will still be the center of everything, and it is essential to find a designer whose services you can afford. Fortunately, most interior design firms charge reasonable fees, and you can find one that helps you achieve all your goals based on your budget.

The Firm’s Reputation and Designer’s Experience 

You can rely on client reviews and what other people say about the company before entrusting the job to any designer. Interior design firm Montecito strives to maintain their reputation to keep and grow its client base. 

It would help to confirm the designers’ credentials and check their portfolio and online reviews to see what they do. Besides their reputation, their experience is also crucial because they have the necessary skills to handle various tasks, no matter how complex.

Timeframe for the Job

If you are on a tight schedule, it is crucial to hire an interior design firm Montecito that will help you complete your decor on time as agreed and deliver what you want. 

A reliable company would pay attention to all the details but still deliver the services on time. However, delays and other inconveniences may occur, but still, a good firm will inform you in advance to help adjust your dates. 

Which Style Is the Firm More Experienced With?

Some designers and firms usually have their signature style or a theme that they execute best. If you are considering hiring an interior design firm Montecito, it helps to have a style or two in mind. 

It assists in narrowing down the options and makes it easier for the designer to actualize your dream. You will be safer if the company is experienced in various styles because you are confident that the designers will deliver anything you want and know how to blend multiple themes. 

Which Interior Design Firm Is Best for You?

Interior design is a vast field, and you should entrust the job to a reputable company whose services you can afford. The designers must be reliable, highly experienced and very professional and hiring an interior design firm Montecito will help you achieve all this and more.  

Book Club Monday

This week’s book club choice, Hotel Splendide by Ludwig Bemlemans is a fun quick read. I saw a bunch of girls reading it on spring break and I was intrigued. I asked them about it and they highly recommended it but I fell in love with the cover alone. Here is the story:

“Truly a great bookunique, invaluable and unapproachable as the gold standard of the genre… Bemelmans got there first, more frequently, and better.” —Anthony Bourdain
Acerbic, colorful, and spirited stories from a bygone era: behind the scenes in a grand NY hotel, from the author of the Madeline books

Picture David Sedaris writing Kitchen Confidential about the Ritz in New York in the 1920s, which had the style and charm of The Grand Budapest Hotel

In this charming and uproariously funny hotel memoir, Ludwig Bemelmans uncovers the fabulous world of the Hotel Splendide—the thinly disguised stand-in for the Ritz—a luxury New York hotel where he worked as a waiter in the 1920s. With equal parts affection and barbed wit, he uncovers the everyday chaos that reigns behind the smooth facades of the gilded dining room and banquet halls.

In hilarious detail, Bemelmans sketches the hierarchy of hotel life and its strange and fascinating inhabitants: from the ruthlessly authoritarian maître d’hôtel Monsieur Victor to the kindly waiter Mespoulets to Frizl the homesick busboy. Illustrated with his own charming line drawings, Bemelmans’ tales of a bygone era of extravagance are as charming as they are riotously entertaining. – Amazon.com

Is March Going To Be Your Lucky Month?

Screenshot 2023 03 09 at 8.46.46 PM

Most of us think of luck as something we simply can’t control.  We just have to take it as it comes. 

But Stuart Lichtman, author of the new book, Make Your Life a 10, says believing that is counter-productive.  In fact, we each have the power to change our luck—quickly.  

Stu, who has trained over 50,000 people around the world—including CEOs and heads of state—to turn their luck around and achieve seemingly impossible goals, explains that luck is little more than unconsciously generated success. 

Since your unconscious mind is what really runs your life, taking control of your luck comes down to making sure that your conscious and unconscious minds both want the same thing.  When they do, you will feel that you are easily getting what you want. Your life will flow smoothly, and your goals will be met without much if any, conscious effort.   In other words, you’ll become far luckier.

Here are a few simple steps Stu recommends to help: 

  • Imagine it.  Whether you hope for the perfect parking spot or the perfect job, visualize it clearly.  Home in on the specific core of what it is, leaving out anything peripheral to it.
  • Write it down. Record what you’ve visualized on paper or in an email or text to yourself.  Then, read what you wrote a few times and imagine having already gotten or experienced it.  This will help anchor the vision in your unconscious mind.
  • Expect it. This is crucial: you must expect that what you wish for will happen—and look for it to show up.

Parade on Broadway

Ben Platt is back on broadway and we are here for it. He is starring in Parade. We are lucky to have a group of seats in the Orchestra on 4/5 at 8 pm for $160 each. Email Me to save your spot.

The acclaimed, sold-out New York City Center production of PARADE starring Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award® winner Ben Platt is moving to Broadway in the can’t-miss event of the year. The New York Times hails it as a Critic’s Pick and “the best-sung musical in many a New York season. It recalls an era of big casts, big stories, and big talent – a time when musicals actually felt like events.”

Platt and rising star Micaela Diamond (The Cher Show) reprise their “powerhouse performance for the ages” (The New York Times) in Jason Robert Brown and Alfred Uhry’s Tony-winning musical, under the visionary direction of Michael Arden (Once On This Island – Best Revival Tony winner).

Leo and Lucille Frank are a newlywed Jewish couple struggling to make a life in the old red hills of Georgia. When Leo is accused of an unspeakable crime, it propels them into an unimaginable test of faith, humanity, justice, and devotion. Riveting and gloriously hopeful, PARADE reminds us that to love, we must truly see one another.
