By Nicole Pulley Associate ASID

Tell us a little bit about your company and the services you offer.

Interior Affairs is an interior design and decorating company located in Helotes, TX. We specializing in complete design, furnishings and décor for the multifamily industry, and also provide residential and commercial decorating services. We provide everything from interior paint color selections and custom window treatments, to space planning, custom furniture pieces and unique décor.

What are the basic factors that people need to consider before coming up with interior design for their homes?

Homeowners should first consider their budget. Are you looking to hire a designer to come up with a complete design concept, purchase and install your furnishings? Or are you looking for ideas for paint colors and a few new furniture pieces or maybe something in between? Once homeowners have decided what their needs are, a design professional will be able to bring their vision to life.

How do you help your clients discover their own personal style?

At Interior Affairs, we provide personal consultations to get to know our clients, their lifestyle and needs. We create a design concept that conveys each client's individual needs, and truly reflects their taste and style.

What is one of the biggest challenges that homeowners encounter when it comes to interior design and how do you help them solve this?

One of the challenges many homeowners face is determining what their style actually is. This is why the consultation is so important. Working with a designer is beneficial in that it helps the client discover his or her style, so that it is accurately reflected in the finished space. Client satisfaction is the main goal, as your home is your castle and we strive to make each homeowner feel like a king!

Will the price vary for a client who will be dependent on your professional design compared to one client who is ready with his own design ideas that wants implemented?

Absolutely. Design fees vary amongst professionals, and implementing a client's existing design ideas will typically cost less than having a designer conceptualize an entire design. At Interior Affairs we are happy to work with the client either way and help see their vision to fruition.

What is your favorite advice to give your clients who wish to see their personalities in their chosen interior design?

We encourage our clients to express themselves completely and don't be afraid of color! Whether creating an energetic game room for kids, or a tranquil Master retreat, homeowners are encouraged to let their personalities and lifestyle, drive the design. This will ensure an environment they will love for years to come.
