How the concept of DesignBar evolved....
During the past 28 years of working as an interior designer, Sarah was often asked by friends, as well as friends-of-friends if they could "pick her brain" for design advice. Most of these projects were limited spaces, in other words: one bathroom, a home office, the design of a fireplace wall, a furniture layout for their family room, etc. These clients expressed to Sarah that they chose not to contract with a design firm because they felt
- It would be too expensive
- Their project would be too small for a big design firm
- They felt obligated to purchase more than just the design advice.
- They could do most of the work on their own but they just needed someone to help them pull it all together.
Because they had a personal connection to Sarah, it was easy...they could just pick up the phone and call! Sarah realized "not everybody knows an interior designer," therefore, she created DesignBar, a comfortable location clients can go to brainstorm their projects with Sarah and get professional, on-the-spot, affordable design advice.
