Refresh! A lot has changed since my last post here…
As some of you may know, in July, I chose to take a risk and resigned from my former design job to start my own design practice. I announced it last month on my personal Facebook account for family and friends. But now after filing (and waiting for) all the particular paperwork and such. It is officially, official! After lots of hard work, patience, lots of encouragement from my loved ones, and a whole lot of courage (and a ridiculous amount of excitement) I can formally announce (legally) Hayley Watters Design (LLC)!
My design philosophy is simple. I believe that truly well-designed spaces can bring not only functionality but create joy in your life. I have discovered that I thrive when working closely with my clients to curate a better, more beautiful living environment. I provide my clients with a purely authentic, true-to-them design that only our close partnership can create. I value communication. I strive for an intentional, meaningful, timeless design. I pride myself on providing my clients with truly transformative designs. Good design is attainable, it just takes a good designer to make that happen!
Personally, I like to describe my style as Natural Minimalist – combining warm, natural elements with clean minimalist lines. A little wabi-sabi, lived-in, perfectly-imperfect. I love mixing old with new, historic architecture, things with a story. In fact, I believe a space should tell a story. And that nature provides the best color schemes. I am passionate about history, art history, and the power of white paint.
I am really looking forward to using this platform to share my work, and things that inspire me.
