I have been doing PR for interior designers since I first started by business. In fact, one of my very first clients was an up and coming interior designer. She was a dream client, mostly because she checked all the boxes—she was incredibly talented, already had a roster of celebrity clients, and had a vision to eventually open a shop, and write a book. Through the years, we helped her get publicity for all of them.
Since then, I have worked with many other interior designers—some on a project base, meaning the goal was to get their one project placed—while some have chosen to have ongoing PR, where they want to be positioned as an expert. There are many reasons to hire a publicist if you are an interior designer, which I will explain at the end, but there are also a few things to consider before you do.
