Mastering Home Design Harmony: A DIYer’s Guide to Your Unique Home Design Personality

Meet Robyn Pringle, a DIY enthusiast and homeowner extraordinaire, who embarked on a transformative journey to infuse her family home with a personal touch after her children left home.


In this comprehensive how-to article, we'll delve into Robyn's experience and extract valuable insights for DIYers and homemakers who use a design professional – in both cases, looking to create a harmonious and uniquely personal living space.


Embrace Your DIY Spirit: Recognizing the Desire for Change

Robyn and her husband, seasoned in the art of DIY, felt the need to update their family home after the children had flown the nest. “My husband is a builder, so DIY is our natural default,” says Robyn. For DIYers, the desire for change often sparks the question: Where do I begin?


Navigate Design Overwhelm: From Trends to Your True Style

Overwhelmed by choices and styles, Robyn turned away from generic quizzes and trends, opting for a solution that went beyond the surface. “I started looking online and looking in magazines and got overwhelmed with all the choices and styles,” she recalls.

The key for DIYers is navigating the sea of options to find their true style without getting lost and creating a result they hate.


Discover Your Design Personality: A Revelation Beyond Quizzes

Robyn's scepticism about discovering her colour psychology profile was quickly dispelled. “She [Kristina] reassured me it was not like those silly quizzes you get on Facebook,” she notes. For DIYers, the journey begins with understanding the deeper aspects of their design preferences.


Empower Your DIY Projects: Documenting Your Design Personality

The pivotal moment for Robyn was when she began to “clearly document my design preferences.” DIYers can take a cue from this crucial step – translating abstract ideas into tangible preferences that guide the creative process.


Collaborate with Design Professionals: A DIYer's Secret Weapon

Armed with her documented home design personality, Robyn approached local interior designers for certain projects. The design professionals were amazed at the clarity of her preferences. DIYers can collaborate effectively with design professionals, offering a clear roadmap for the creative journey.


DIY with Confidence: Applying Your Design Personality at Home

For Robyn and her husband, the DIY journey extended beyond collaboration to taking charge of their own projects. DIYers can find confidence in their abilities by adhering to the principles laid out by their unique design personality.


Eliminate Decision Stress: A DIY Oasis of Authenticity

The result? A home that feels like a sanctuary. By sidestepping distracting trends, Robyn and her husband created a space that truly reflects them. “I am not distracted by trends or styles,” she attests.

DIYers can achieve the same authenticity by eliminating decision stress and staying true to their unique design personality.


Recommendation for Homemakers (DIY or Otherwise): Invest in Yourself

Robyn's parting advice for DIYers is clear: “I highly recommend you learn Your Unique Home Design Personality before starting any home improvement project.” The investment in oneself pays off in confidence, satisfaction, and a home that stands out as a true reflection of personal style.


In conclusion, Robyn's journey from overwhelm to design harmony serves as an invaluable guide for DIYers and homemakers who use a design professional.


By understanding and embracing your unique design personality, any home improvement project can transform from daunting tasks into fulfilling, authentic expressions of personal style. Learn more about this transformational course here.
