This was a great conversation with Alexa, she hit on so many points of concern within the design community. One important point Alexa made was that in this time of abundant availability of items through the web in which clients now tend to search for by themselves, its crucial for decorators and designers not undervalue to their expertise. Once you undervalue yourself then the clients will as well!
Also, clients may be able to find pieces online but when it is time to actually make them work in a space that is where the clients run into trouble and the room looks off scale and mismatched.
We also discussed the over use of trends. How a little goes a long way and just because your friend has it doesn't mean you should too. It is important to give your space it's own personality with pieces that can stand the test of time and trends that can be removed without guilt as you grow tired of them.
I can say Alexa has a great personality and is so down to earth! Considering her lineage being the daughter of Mark Hampton, and having the pressure to carry on that amazing design talent and ability, one could still definitely sit down and have coffee with her any day of the week!
