If I weren’t a garden designer myself, and I had decided to hire a designer to help me with my current garden, that person would be Jinny Blom. She simply excels at what I like and want out of a country garden. Perhaps if I had a city garden, my choice of designer would be very different, and I would have a more difficult time picking, but this garden seals the deal for me (although I prefer her meadows to the more formal structure of this project). Jinny has won the bidding, she can have my hypothetical job.
Is that really done? Do interior designers ever really hire other interior designers to do up their homes? Architects hire architects? Those would be interesting project for sure. It seems if you are in the business, you have a vision that you never get to build quite like you can in your home — so why would you hire out? But, I would certainly love to have Jinny over for a consultation. In fact, that doesn’t seem like a bad way to learn a few things or open my eyes to something new and different (that is hire a designer – even if you are a designer). Are you a designer? Have you ever hired someone else to do your job and your passion?
