"Imagine for a minute arriving in the trawling metropolis of New York City with only three suitcases and a box. You immediately start work and then spend every other waking moment over days, weeks and perhaps months hunting down your perfect apartment only then faced with moving into a white box. Time poor, and faced with the interior design skills of a fifth grader, what do you do?
Of course you begin your research online but very soon become absolutely inundated with the plethora of options available: Everything from complete turnkey services for the cost of an arm and two legs to the other extreme where you upload floor plans and without any consultation you’re provided with a list of items you need to purchase and not really sure it’s the look you’re going for in a space you want to call home .
Then you find Joe from Designs by Human. Joe provided the perfect balance between complete turn key and internet email; a personalized Human approach just as his namesake suggests. With his consultative style Joe met with me and spent time understanding what I was looking for: A warm design and a space that would feel like home — likely a tough ask (just imagine a typical New York apartment and a design that accommodates a place for overseas guest, a space to entertain and a place to work from home) and a client (me) who’s likes to get involved and is hands on.
But Joe with his incredible patience absolutely nailed it. An amazing design in such a small space filled with interesting artistic elements and features integrated throughout my home. It feels warm and personalized incorporating elements of “me”, is complimented by my guests, and is certainly something that I’d never have managed to accomplish by myself.
So if you're looking for someone to help with your own project I'd really recommend getting in touch with Joe from Designs by Human.
Thanks Joe. I’m really glad we met and thanks for all your help!"
