Good storytellers have to be good listeners, and good listening is a skill that requires curiosity, empathy and focus. Lynne's exceptional listening skills were critical to her successful career in branding, and successful interior design projects are no different. Whether the project is business or residential, fully understanding the client and their needs requires thoughtful research and excellent listening.
“One of my favorite parts of the creative process is the research that kicks off a project. This is often where the core truths about a project, and also the client, are revealed. It's really important that I understand a client's dreams and hopes—and I want them to express themselves almost from a place of fantasy. Of course the practical side will have to be addressed as the project unfolds, but wishful thinking is a great place to start.”
After the research, when the design process has begun in earnest, Lynne's extensive creative background and love of both modern and classical design, will bring clarity to the daunting process of decision making. Whether it's choosing just the right tile surface, or an unexpected wallpaper, or integrating a family heirloom into a newly renovated room, creating focused and smart choices is critical, and Lynne is an excellent guide through this challenging process.
Wonderful interiors do not appear fully formed—they require research, insight and experience to design, and they demand sweat, time and effort to be built properly. Lynne's goal is to help you create something both from your imagination—and beyond it. The best homes and environments are impossible to imagine any other way.
