05: Don’t listen to other people! How to get to the Why of your Home Design with Helena Nikola
Show Notes

I loved this heartfelt conversation, full of real information and Helena's authentic approach to home design. 

  • It’s not about ticking boxes or what your friends and family think
  • It’s about digging deep and understanding ‘Why’ you are building/renovating and ‘What’ you really need to have
  • Too often homes are built bigger than needed and include a checklist of “shoulds”, influenced by listening to other people and the housing market. These are distractions, often costly ones, in getting to the home and way of life you really want.

We talked about how working with a professional designer elevates your home from lines on a page to a lived in, layered experience that makes walking into your home a joy.

 Helena also has great advice for clients on how to direct their expenditure, and how it’s best to take the time perfecting your floorplan before launching into a design project. “There’s no rush. Good design has to be done well.”
