We are excited to announce that our firm has been named one of 2017’s Top 200 Design Industry Influencers by Fixr.com. What company we keep! This list includes interior design luminaries like Bunny Williams, Mary McDonald and Anthony Ingrao — some of the true giants in our field. Just to be included is a huge honor. Fixr.com is a popular site which provides cost guides, comparisons, and term descriptions for hundreds of remodeling, installation and repair projects.
The “Top 200 Influencers in the Home Design Industry 2017” list, which also features such design industry leaders as David Kleinberg, Charlotte Moss and Darryl Carter is based on the designers’ level of influence over design thinking and practices nationwide.
Fixr.com compiled the list based an exhaustive review of designers’ online presences, social media activities and awards they’ve won. The list of home design influencers consists of nation-wide industry experts. These include interior designers, home stagers, home designers and other home design specialists.
One of the reasons being named to this list is so gratifying is that it validates a lesson I learned long ago from my mentors: Never stop learning about your craft. The more knowledge you can collect the more you will be able to share with your colleagues and clientele. We love learning about new products, researching historic details and searching for ideas and products online that will add to the utility and beauty of the our projects. The internet is a constant resource for new ideas and we love to share our discoveries on social media.
Dialogue and sharing of ideas is critical for the industry. As Yuka Kato of the Fixr.com blog noted, “The home design industry doesn’t change on its own; it’s the people at the very forefront of the design world who are dictating the colors, materials, designs, and styles that shape the way we live and work in our homes and offices.”
