This week, we are pleased to introduce to you Sally Scott, from Sally Scott Interior Design. This spotlight is also a special one because Sally is celebrating 30 years of providing professional interior design services. Sally has an eye for the details and is known for creating spectacular interiors for her clients.
What is your favorite part about being a designer?
So many things! Specifically, the opportunity to create comfortable and impressive living environments for our clients. Experiencing their excitement during the design process and then watching them settle in and enjoy their new rooms is something that we enjoy witnessing. We also really enjoy building lasting relationships with our clients and business associates. We have had some clients for over 15 years! And, of course, it’s great having everyday be different.
What is your favorite current resource?
We are wild about wool plaid for upholstery these days!!! Bronte Moon and Kravet for everything.
Can you tell us about your personal brand?
We pride ourselves on the ability to design interiors that reflect our client’s individual style (not ours). We take great care in designing projects that are unique and personally suited to our client’s tastes, needs, and budget. We are respectful, professional and….FUN!
Who or what would you cite as your most important influence?
My Grandmother and Mother!!!! I grew up living next door to my Grandmother. Both my mother and grandmother loved decorating. Rooms were continually being changed, furniture rearranged, walls painted and papered, and they loved color! In the summer, area rugs were rolled up, draperies were changed, furniture was slipcovered – it was such fun. They both nurtured my creativity. I was 16 when we remodeled my bathroom. I remember getting very impatient about selecting a wall paper, so I simply drew flowers and dots all over the walls and ceiling…with a black sharpie!!! They loved it!
We also wanted to congratulate you on 30 years in business! Is there one piece of advice you’d give someone starting their own interior design career?
Be prepared to wear LOTS of hats, corral hundreds of moving pieces everyday, be organized, learn from mistakes, and most important, just do what you say you are going to do!
