Helping Your House Lose Weight

While many of us are now focused on losing those extra pounds that we put on over the holidays, Hayden Garrett Interiors poses this question: Does your house need to lose weight?

If all the stuff that you’ve been accumulating over the years has rendered your home’s original interior design unrecognizable, then know you’re not alone. You know what we’re talking about. You try to find the perfect accessory but nothing works, so you wind up with a house full of beautiful pieces that suddenly don’t seem as beautiful as they did in the store. Or you inherit your grandmother’s antiques and you’re not sure how to incorporate them into your existing furnishings. Or you feel like you can’t get rid of the (fill-in-the-blank here) because you paid too much for it back in the day. The list goes on and on.

No matter how or why you attained your stuff, it’s actually a common problem. And the solution is easier than you might have imagined. Hayden Garrett Interiors can reshape your home with a color and style makeover or a complete overhaul, offering design solutions that will put new life into your tired home.

Hayden Garrett Interiors founders and owners, Shanda Hayden and Ginger Garrett, formed the full-service design firm in 2009, then called It’s All Arranged, which highlighted room makeovers. The name change to Hayden Garrett Interiors more accurately captures the scope of their work. “Yes, we still do room makeovers!” says Ginger. “Sometimes it’s the perfect solution. Other times, not so. We’ll create a custom-designed home if that’s what the client would like.”

“Sometimes it’s hard for homeowners to see the forest for the trees,” said Shanda. “Most times, Ginger and I walk in and immediately see what needs to be done. It may be something as simple as changing a paint color or a home may truly need some major updating.”

What you will enjoy most about Hayden Garrett Interiors is their ability to develop an interior design plan that will meet your specific needs and budget. “We feel we give homeowners honest and valuable feedback on what improvements they should invest in for their home,” said Ginger.

You may recognize their talent from the rooms they designed for the 2010 and 2011 Knoxville Symphony League show houses. Both Hayden and Garrett are members of the national and East Tennessee chapter of the Interior Design Society, a trade organization that specializes in residential interior design. To meet the real estate needs of clients, they each hold certificates from STIR (Staging Transformations and Interior Redesign). Each have extensive backgrounds in interior design and fine furniture sales.

If you’re sincere about helping your home to lose weight in 2012, then both Ginger and Shanda are prepared to help you set your New Year’s resolution into motion. The Before & After portfolio on the Hayden Garrett Interiors website will inspire you to start your home’s diet. Browse through their photos and see if any of the rooms remind you of your home and the work that needs to be done. Just a friendly reminder that it’s 2012, not 1992!

Ginger and Shanda look forward to helping your home shed its old image and discovering a brand new look for 2012. So what are you waiting for? America’s first Interior Decorator, Dorothy Draper, put it simply when she said, “My theory has always been to get started.” Give them a call today and get started.

Meet the Designer – Ginger Garrett
My favorite projects are the ones where we’re totally immersed in the whole house; everything’s clicking and there’s a lot of adrenaline in the air! And it never fails to amaze me how one little change in the room can make such a huge difference for the better. Knowing our clients are happy with the results is my greatest reward.

I consider getting to know our clients one of the many perks of our job. Not only is it enjoyable and interesting, it is essential. Creating a beautiful room takes effort, and taking the extra time to discover a client’s needs and wishes makes all the difference. It also ensures that the outcome reflects their personality, not ours!
