Imagine sitting in your hairstylist’s chair. After asking for a trim, you notice that their snip-happy scissors have lopped off too much. Do you speak up and ask that they fix the mistake, or leave the salon a dissatisfied customer?
For many of us, it’s difficult to tell people exactly what we want – or don’t want, in the case of a good haircut gone bad. This is especially true when dealing with professionals, whether it be our stylist, our dentist or our mechanic. We tend to remain silent while they do their thing, trusting that they “get” what we mean and will do what’s best for us.
But unless that professional is also an expert mind reader, the key to getting precisely what you want is to communicate, communicate, communicate!
The same goes when hiring a professional designer to help select Benjamin Moore paint colors for your home. To achieve exactly what you want, it is important to communicate clearly and constantly during all stages of the design process. Every designer we know wants to successfully collaborate with their client, and that starts by being open and honest about what you want.
As the client, you are investing in the expertise of a professional interior designer to help you select the perfect Benjamin Moore paint color. Ultimately, you want to be able to collaborate and work toward the same goal. The more clearly you can communicate your vision at the beginning of the project and be willing to speak up throughout the process, the more likely you are to find yourself living in the home of your dreams.
As it turns out, the powder room was where one went to refresh their powdered wig and nose or to make a quick retreat from boorish conversation (yawn!). Typically, the powder room was a water closet near the formal entertaining room, making it convenient for guests needing a moment to themselves.
When it comes to serenity in your sleeping quarters, we’ll lay it down: the bedroom is meant to be a dreamy oasis; a calming and comfortable retreat; a relaxation station designed especially for you to unplug and power down.
We think it’s time that Connecticut’s hardworking paint contractors got a break.
