To help, Libby secretly signed up Shef on Homepolish, and they met with interior designer, Margaret Wenzel. Margaret, whose roster of clients regularly includes couples who are moving in together, is the first to note that, although she’s an interior designer by trade, her job often includes a bit of couples therapy.
“It’s always more than just picking out a couch, a lot of emotions surface when you’re designing someone’s home.”
“To be fair, I had some terrible ideas in the beginning,” Shef says, like two massive 6-foot-tall vintage letters that spelled ‘SF’ — which Margaret nixed, because they would overpower the small space (not to mention probably wouldn’t fit through the door).
“I mean, if it were up to me, the entire place would be decked out in stripes.” Libby says.
