To make my Top Ten Designer list I just looked through all my pictures.
Any Designer that knock my socks off or any bathroom so unique that I had to keep the pictures to show clients got more of weighting in my scale. I did find however that many of the bathrooms I had saved where in fact built by the same designer and I had not put two and two together before.
I think if your going to do a large renovation or build a home you might do this exercise and then look at the data - does one builder keep showing up? Does one architect stand out among all the rest.
I was shocked and will ponder these findings for days I'm sure. I for sure have a thing for bathroom design and showers but this is my niche and my love. The fact that I choose the designs of more men than women I found very interesting since on my social networks I have 80% women friends and 20% men. But when push came to shove I liked 80% of the projects by men and only 20% by women.
And the whole West Coast thing gets me wondering how where we are brought up must have a huge role in what we perceive to be "Nice" or "Top Design". Perhaps working with a designer from Back East is not a great thing if you live in Seattle and vice versa if your designer moved from Vancouver and now works in Chicago!
Any thoughts on this? JW
