Use personal items
When starting a new redecorating project, you don’t have to throw away your old items, because not only do they have emotional and sentimental value, but they can also help create a beautiful style.
“I am very upfront and honest about this subject,” Sutton said. “I am happy to work with their objects because it makes the home more personal and about them, but I’m also clear that it’s my job to tell them if I feel it doesn’t work.”
In some cases, you can repurpose these old objects, but getting rid of them should be your last option. However, one of the most important things that you have to take into consideration when redecorating your house is to make sure that your house reflects your personality and tastes. In this sense, if you want to adopt a vintage style and use all of your old objects, then tell this to your interior designer.
