Christmas in August?!

Can you believe Christmas is less than 6 months away? It’s hard to imagine with the sweltering heat we’ve been experiencing here in the Cape Fear region.  It seems like we skipped right over Spring and went straight to the dog days of summer.  So, you may not be thinking of those guests you’ll entertain over the holidays quite yet.  Let me tell you why you should.

Have you been thinking about redoing that guest room or perhaps redesigning some spaces in your home that you’re not in love with?  If you want those spaces to be completed before Thanksgiving when the family comes in to share that turkey dinner with you, now is the time to start!  You may wonder why.  Well, any great design takes time.  There’s the consultation time where we listen to your vision then there’s time to create design boards to see if we’re on the right track.  Inevitably, there will be some back and forth before you decide we’ve nailed it.  Next is ordering time.  Often, custom items like furniture and draperies take anywhere from four to 12 weeks to complete.  Then we have to schedule to have everything installed.  As you can imagine, folks are still trying to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Florence in our area.  This translates into all the tradespeople that make your dreams come alive being extremely busy.   So just remember anything beautiful takes time to create and implement!

We at McKenzie Baker Interiors here in Wilmington NC have been in business for more than 25 years and have the best connections in the business with manufacturers, suppliers and installers alike.  We will never send someone to your home that we are not assured will do the best possible job.  We are honored to have completed countless successful design jobs and would love to help you with your next project!  We look forward to hearing from you at 910.762.4222 or via our website at www.mckenziebakerinteriors.com.
