Meet Paige Bailey, Interior Designer and Owner of One Posh Place

When I was an intern at an interior design firm, I was able to learn about the many home decor stores in town.  I would drop off or pick up items for the designer to use in client’s homes and saw first hand the quality and selection that were in these stores.  One store that I immediately was drawn to and fell in love with, was One Posh Place.  It is located in the heart of Arcadia neighborhood, where I grew up, and is filled with timeless pieces.  Blue ginger china plates, wingback chairs, and sterling silver accessories are abundant in this beautiful store.  I was lucky enough to meet the owner, Paige Bailey, and ask her a few questions about her career as an interior designer and store owner.

Over 100,000 people currently call this community home, and it is easy to see why once you have visited and seen the attractive properties that we offer real estate services the woodlands tx.

What do you feel are the benefits and challenges to being an interior designer and a store owner? The main benefit to the client of working with an interior designer/store owner is that they can see, touch, and sit in the furniture before they actually purchase it.  Clients can also save money and time by taking advantage of in stock furniture and accessories. The main challenge of wearing both the interior designer and store owner hats is that you are managing two businesses, which equates to separate sets of business knowledge and implementation. For instance, you’re wondering which is the better loan to use for your business regarding Payday Advance Loans Vs Traditional Loans, visit this website gadcapital.com. Who are your favorite interior designers? It’s a step back in history, but without hesitation, the Greeks.  We use their design principals everyday. How do you feel that being an interior design and the design world, has changed in the past 10 years? The internet and the media have a huge impact on designers and our clientele.  It’s much easier and expeditious to access the products and services we like and purchase.  Also, our clients are more sophisticated and knowledgeable about what they hope to achieve in their design projects. How did you get started in the design business? I worked for over 10 years as a marketing communications manager, developing magazine and radio advertisements, and public relations for a large corporation, while working towards my MBA.  I used these same design, budgetary and people skills in starting my own businesses. What advice do you wish you had, that you would give someone starting out in this industry? Learn everything you possibly can about the business of design; every detail, every insight, every article, every class – you can’t be overly knowledgeable or involved.
