Why the client want to do it?

It’s not just for aesthetics, but the project should reflect the personality of the client, so that he will be fully satisfied in the long term and  completely comfortable in that environment.

First you have to observe the basic features of the environment and discover  strengths and weaknesses, to decide where and how to optimally act.

Then, make style choices (space, colors shapes, materials) consistent with the budget that was allocated.

It is therefore necessary to evaluate different quotations from different suppliers, keeping in line with the style outlined, the essential quality, the specific needs of the client and the established budget.

For an interior designer, every project is therefore a work of great research, careful and meticulous, which takes into account several interlinked aspects.
