Relationship Secrets Of The Pros

Find out how retailers and designers work together to build each other’s businesses

 

…For interior designer Claire Bell, owner of Claire Bell Home in Chamblee, GA, commitment to the design project is the key to ensuring a long-lasting relationship of trust and collaboration. “As a retailer,” she says, “I want my designers to know that the top priority for me is making the best design decision for them. That doesn’t change even when it means sourcing a piece elsewhere.”

As long as the driver in making purchasing decisions is mutual enthusiasm for the project,
you cannot go wrong.

The Claire Bell Collection at Chelsea House

Claire has brought a fresh take to traditional motifs through the incorporation of modernized trellis, lattice, and chinoiserie themes. She finds inspiration close to home–rescue retriever Flossie inspired best-selling Flossie bookends and Flossie lamps. As an Air Force colonel, Claire’s grandfather was stationed in Taiwan and the Philippines. Her grandmother was an artist who collected porcelain and Asian-inspired decor and furniture, bringing many items back to the States. Claire’s early exposure to these pieces gave her a foundation for designing traditional decor for Chelsea House. Accompanying her grandmother to art classes also instilled a love of painting, flowers, and botanicals. During Claire’s time spent learning floral design in Los Angeles, she developed a love of all kinds of plants, herbs and flowers that drive her new product development today.  Her laurel chandelier, laurel demilune table, and leaf hall table for Chelsea House are staples in her collection.  Her favorite piece designed for Chelsea House to date, however, is the Tole Pagoda Lantern, available in peach, cream and gold, and recently featured by Traditional Home.

I love working with you, Claire!

When Claire and I started the design project, I only expected to complete one room. However, the results were so beautiful that I ended up working with Claire for three years and completing the rest of my home. Claire has a great design aesthetic, but her excellent communication skills and follow through were the qualities I valued the most – whether it was submitting detailed costing of services and goods, outlining project timelines and addressing issues that impacted the schedule in addition to her design recommendations on colors, fabrics, furniture and space planning. Claire displayed the utmost professionalism and client care during all of our projects that it was a pleasure to work with her.

E-consulting with Claire Bell has been a wonderful experience! I was browsing photos on houzz.com and came across some light fixtures that I thought were stunning. I asked the designer a question, and she promptly gave me an answer and offered her services to locate the sconces I wanted. I had never heard of e-consulting with a designer before, and I was a little lost when it came to the overall design of our new house, so I was relieved that Claire led me in the right direction. After showing Claire pictures of what I liked, she was able to narrow down my style preferences and keep me from straying off course. It was a huge relief to have some guidance.

Claire Bell did the impossible. She came into our home and helped us find a color scheme that was lively, fun, and more than our normal routine. In fact, we are so excited about the color of the tile and paint choices Claire made, that we’ve moved up our tiling project and already painted our living room! Claire, I can’t thank you enough. I know we’ll be contacting you again when it comes time to choosing more paint colors for other rooms of our home.

My husband and I are both cpas with busy schedules and so Claire came over to our house after hours to meet on our time. She did a walk through of our entire home in order to get a feel for what our personal style was. She sketched out the dimensions of the room we were looking to decorate—to scale. She then presented 3 options for the layout and what furniture would work in the space and still accomplish the comfortable, inviting feeling we wanted. Claire helped the two of us compromise on fabrics, style and colors. No easy feat. She also made sure the shipment arrived before Thanksgiving, which was very important to us. Our Thanksgiving holiday, hosting both sides of the family, was made that much better by Claire’s efforts in getting our house prepared. I look forward to being able to recommend your services to both friends and family.”

Claire Bell is FABULOUS! She is responsive, detail oriented and has amazing design capabilities. We’ve entrusted her to handle something as small as a curtain selection and as large as our major kitchen renovation. I would trust her to handle any project in my home, big or small.
