Design and Decoration
Everyone has a different reason for seeking design and decoration services. Perhaps you just bought your first home and want it to resemble more than an empty box. Or maybe you've been living in your dream house for years, but never quite made it your own. It could also be that you're opening a restaurant and need it to have a coherent atmosphere. Whatever your reasons may be, interior design and decoration is your key to putting a personal stamp on your surroundings.
Design Versus Decoration
Design and decoration are part of the same industry, but they're different in scope. Interior Decoration is more art than science, and requires less formal training to accomplish. Decorators can certainly update a space, but not to the level that an Interior Designer can create. Interior design is both an art and a science. In addition to the furnishing and finishing of a space with paint colors, wall treatments, floor treatments, light fixtures, and furniture, Interior Designers can specify wall locations for a finished basement, lay out a bathroom, and develop a kitchen from scratch. Think of it as interior architecture. It's important to note that most Interior Designers are adept at interior decoration, but most Interior Decorators do not practice Interior Design. As a full-service firm, Design by the Jonathans has a team of Interior Designers that can offer both services simultaneously.
It's All in the Details
Design by the Jonathans creates personalized design solutions, and we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we believe that every project should reflect your ideas, values, and personal taste, resulting in layered spaces that are unique and desirable.
