Show Notes

In his 2003 book, Emotional Design, the well-known American academic, Don Norman, came up with a theory to capture how and why people react, and emotionally connect, to certain objects and visual experiences. His theory was that true delight and enduring pleasure in something can only be achieved if positive visceral, behavioural and reflective reactions are achieved. In this episode, Jeff and Susie are joined by Brian Woulfe of Designed by Woulfe to explore how this theory can be applied to the design of interior spaces. Is Don Norman’s approach just marketing spin or are there real benefits to be had? And, if so, how can designers ensure their clients respond positively to their designs on all levels? Thanks to our series partner Parkside Architectural Tiles for their support. The Interior Design Business is a Wildwood production.

The Interior Designer As Brand

For this show, we’re joined by a very special guest, Sophie Paterson, to dissect the interior designer as brand in front of a select gathering of VIP designers. Interior designers tend to fall into two camps. Those who deliberately avoid having a house style and always try to subjugate their own taste to that of their client’s preferences. And others whose names become firmly associated with a particular interior style, and eventually become a brand in their own right. But does this approach make the successful delivery of projects harder or easier for interior designers and their clients? Recorded at the wonderful Andrew Martin showroom in South Kensington. ...
