How did my passion for interior design begin?

Stunning Project by Jennifer H.

When I was 9-years-old, my amazing mom began taking me on regular trips to NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. I was a product of the 1970’s recession and knew well the stress that puts on a family. So, my mom opened this magical world of art to me, a world of furnishings, antiquities, and architecture. With that escape, my passion for beautiful things and design was born. So was my love affair with beauty and the power of stunning surroundings to make life feel (and look) better. It became part of my DNA.

Before I became a trained and award-winning interior designer, I started out just like you: a DIY interior design lover! Sometimes I hit the mark with a room, other times I missed it. I’d struggle to fix a not-quite-right room with design band aids (you know the ones … pillows, accessories, or re-arranging furniture a million times). I’d get so frustrated when the ideas in my head didn’t pan out and I didn’t know the fix!

Finally, thanks to my husband Steve, I decided to drop a successful TV career to go back to school to study interior design. WOW! My eyes opened to the power of design strategy.

My custom interior design firm was born. Pretty quickly, I started getting design awards and my wonderful team grew. Today, I’m blessed that people wait for months for me to be able to start their design projects.

A New Brand is Born

Here’s the important thing to know: I’ve walked where you are now.

I started The Interior Design Advocate (TIDA for short) because we couldn’t help everyone who called our boutique company. Sometimes, we’re too full to take on their project. Sometimes, paying thousands of dollars in design fees doesn’t work for their budget. But, no matter who we turned away, their feelings were the same: they didn’t like the way their home looked and they didn’t know how to fix it.

I had to do something. Then, it hit me…

I told my team we were starting a new brand to help more people! So, The Interior Design Advocate was born. This is the place design lovers come to get empowered with systems, strategies, and products that finally arm you to successfully create your most perfectly beautiful home!
