Compass Homes, your Columbus custom home builders, recently announced our partnership with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Ohio South/Kentucky Chapter. We are excited to bring you a Parade Home like no other in 2014. As your preferred Columbus home builder, we are always thinking of ways to motivate and inspire people, and our new partnership should do just that!
We are excited to profile our first two local designers, Peggy Snider and Bethany Metcalf from Snider Metcalf Interior Designs. We wanted to sit down and ask a few questions to get to know the designers a little better!
CH: How long have you been in the field of design?
PS BDM: Suffice to say, we have 59 years of design experience between the two of us!
CH: What was your very first project?
PS BDM: Although we both have earlier projects, the first project we worked on together (18 years ago) was for a newly married couple with 6 children between them. He previously owned a very contemporary home and she was coming from a much more traditional background. It was a fun challenge, to first understand where they each were coming from, and then to blend the two styles to create solutions that met both of their expectations, as well as their 6 off-spring.
CH: What inspires you?
PS BDM: We are inspired by the desire to create a space that is welcoming and inviting; a place that you derive pleasure just ‘being’ in. We draw inspiration from nature, historical spaces and motifs, furnishings (both modern and traditional) and love repurposing items for new uses.
CH: What do you believe is good design?
PS BDM: Good design is that which transcends time and doesn’t scream which decade it is from; it is timeless and balanced.
CH: Where is your favorite place to shop or get ideas?
PS BDM: Architectural Digest, Houzz, Pinterest
CH: Why did you decide to participate in the 2014 Parade of Homes?
PS BDM: The new venture between Compass Homes and ASID was very exciting to us. We’ve always enjoyed working among other designers in the Decorator’s Showhouse and this partnership gives us another opportunity to do that while reaching a different audience. Being a relatively new company, we thought that working with Compass Homes in the BIA Parade of Homes would be a great opportunity to give our business more exposure in the community.
Stay tuned to Compass Homes, your home builder Columbus Ohio, to read about more of our amazing 2014 Parade Home designers as we begin to profile them on our blog and Facebook page.
