I’ve worked with hundreds of clients over the years and I can tell you with absolute certainty that single guys are a special kind of client. Bachelors want their homes to be comfortable yet impressive to guests, and when it comes to a redesign, they want an easy process with zero headache.
My approach is to make his place to look cool and classy while minimizing choices and streamlining purchases.
Here’s how I do it: K.I.S.S… Keep It Simple Stupid.
For some clients, I can shop for days and only focus on accent pillows, providing dozens of options of styles and texture to choose from. And as much fun as that can be – that’s not what bachelors want. Guys want strong aesthetical appeal with minimal decision-making. That’s why I bring in two or three great options; they can’t go wrong with whatever choice they make, and everyone benefits from a simpler process.
And a happy client makes for a happy Scott.
Not quite ready for a full-on redesign? If you’re only looking for a few pieces, check out our friends at Bachelor Haus – a new furniture and design shop that specializes in room sets for guys. They’ve got a whole suite of killer Mad Men-chic living room and bedroom sets that I just love.
So all you bachelors – Try out a KISS design, you’ll be happy you did.
