Admit it: You want it. We all do.
I’m talking about swag.
What’s space swag? It’s that perfect match between personality and design, the sublime union of form and function. It’s the result of finding your voice, home-wise, and it starts with the combination of you and me.
Let me explain: there are countless contractors in Kansas City who can build a structure. There are many designers in the metro area who can dress it up. But there are only a few who do the prep work that turns a space from ok to freakin’ fantastic, and I’m one of the best.
We don’t start with colors or tile choices. We start with a conversation. I ask questions: — Who does the cooking? And what do you love to cook? Are you a TV or a board games (or both?) family? How much time would you spend in your master bedroom if it was perfectly suited to you? What does perfectly suited mean, anyway?
As far as I’m concerned, no question, or discussion, is off-limits when we work together. Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I’m not afraid to “go there." I want to know what makes you tick, what trips your trigger, what gets you all warm and fuzzy; because when I know those things about you, I can help you create a space that truly feels like home.
Space swag happens only when I listen. It happens because I hear what you say, and also because I can turn what you want into a reality. It happens because each and every step of our work together is part of an on-going conversation.
And yes — we will talk colors and tile choices, and the advantages and disadvantages of hardwoods vs. carpeting. We’ll talk about layout and function. We’ll talk resale value, and budget considerations. All of that is important, and each element is a part of the process.
But first, we’ll talk about you. We’ll talk about what you like and what you don’t. We’ll talk about what you’ve always wanted and what you never knew you needed. That, my friend, is how you find your space swag.
