Why Hire a Designer?
"A boat’s interior is too small to hide and egregious decorating mistake. Consulting a pro is the best route. The advice of a good interior designer is money well-spent, considering that you will have to live with the results for years to come or start all over again."
"It’s important to find an interior designer who has experience with boats. An appreciation for the weight of materials and their behavior in a marine environment is critical. The interior designers I do respect know the difference between a boat and a beach house. They are professionals. "
"Interior Design is not just making things pretty, it’s about worrying about the ergonomics. I can make it look beautiful, but I also make it work for the humans using the space.” - New England Home
