I actually get a lot of my design inspiration while talking to my clients. I try to design around the client’s personality. We love to design out of the box.

The site or location of the project is always a great inspiration for our work. The topography, the views, the light and the natural materials of the area have a great influence on the design.  We also spend a lot of time trying to get to know the client, their goals and what drives their desires and that has a tremendous influence on the path a design takes.

Lately I find the most design inspiration from Pinterest.  It is such an amazing tool for my job.  I use it to look up general concepts, architects and designers work, design details, and also use it to catalog my projects and communicate with my clients. barbara-mullen-design

I’m inspired by nature and the outdoors, especially immersing myself in natural environments through outdoor activities. I’m also inspired through reading and artwork. The Corbusier lounge chair in my living room is the perfect place to relax and read.

I find design inspiration in many things. Attention to detail and commitment to quality and the time it takes to achieve it. I am surrounded daily by homes (obviously) so to see that someone, or a team of someone’s, took extra care and time to “make it right” is inspiring. I worry that we are losing the long handed down craftsmanship of our trades.
