Basics of Interior Design

Hey guys, My name is Jessica Jones and I started this site to help my clients and potential customers decide which interior design ideas are best for them. I have decades of experience and I wanted to share my expertise through this blog and through articles and informative videos to help you make the best decisions about interior design.

Maybe you’ll be inspired as well.

Interior design doesn’t have to be complicated. It can actually be really fun if you know even a little bit about what you’re doing. Here’s a quick video about the top trends in 2016:

Space saving is a huge trend now. I just went to Ikea the day and they had some pretty amazing stuff for space saving. They had us walk into a 525 square foot demo area, and showed how 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a living room and a kitchen with a little dining area. But it didn’t even feel crowded which was the crazy thing. My daughter loved the little bed in there, and actually you could have put bunk beds so 2 kids could fit. And in all reality, you could have fit 3 little kids in there.

Another huge trend is simplicity. Back in the day, everyone was all about making everything complicated and fancy and stuff. Now, it’s all about simplicity. Real Simple Magazine is a huge example of everyone wanting to be simple. And the space saving trend goes hand in hand with the simplicity trend.

What else goes hand in hand with simplicity and space saving? If you guess money saving and cost effective, you guessed right. Ever since the economic collapse in 2008, there hasn’t been a great recovery so most people are still hurting. Most working age people dont have jobs, as crazy as that may sound. And most people are still wanting to live in a beautiful home. If you know what I’m talking about, then you know what its like to rummage through craigslist and try to get the best deals possible.
