A Chat with Bonnie Lia Interiors, LLC
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I work within a client’s lifestyle. There is nothing more frustrating than an organizer who creates a space the client cannot maintain. My job goes beyond making beautiful spaces. I work with my clients to help purge what no longer serves them and then put systems in place that they can live in.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I’ve been organizing and decorating as far back as I can remember. In fact, I can’t walk into a room without rearranging furniture in my mind. A few years ago my situation changed, and I needed to be financially independent. It was the push I needed to create a business I always knew was inside me.
What do you love most about your job?
Clutter, and how it comes about, is personal. My clients bring me into their homes, but by the time the project is complete, they’ve brought me into their lives. There is something so rewarding in seeing my clients’ faces light up when they see their new space. It’s transformative for both of us.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Recently, I worked with a client who was not home during the project. Later, I received this text: “I don’t know what I expected. But I didn’t expect this.” I was very concerned that she was unhappy with the work but then this text came: “It looks so amazing all I want to do is sit and look at it.”
