Now more than ever; in spite of tumultuous times or rather because of them, people are making big changes and big moves. The soul searching inspired by lockdowns and the need for peace amidst the chaos has led many to discover the significance of home. Home is more than a place to hang your hat, it is a feeling of belonging and comfort, of identity and authenticity and the recognition of what is most valuable. Our homes are our safe place. Making the most of that space, needing more space or moving your space entirely are all possibilities in this new age.
Hope Hinkle has been re-envisioning rooms since she was a little girl. When the rest of the family was fast asleep, she’d stay up late planning her next redesign, rearranging all of her bedroom furniture for a fresh and exciting look to show off in the morning. She is one of the few who is able to effortlessly plan and picture the “after” from any “before”, be it large or small scale projects. Hinklemade Professional Interior Design Services was created using that gift and harnesses the magic of transforming a space with Hope’s abilities, as well as the assistance of 3D renderings that help take the guesswork out of the finished product for her clients.
The relationship between design and construction are inherently intertwined – they go hand-in-hand in creativity, coordination and timeline, moving seamlessly from the drawing table to move-in-ready. Hinklemade — Hope, with business partner and husband Jake, is equipped to step in at any point of the process and at any level, from offering simple advice on how to enhance atmosphere to partnering with builders to work from the ground up as experienced project managers.
Whether it’s your quintessential beach getaway, an investment property that will stand out from the rest, or the betterment of the home you live in now. It’s easy to have a vision of what your dream abode will look like, but not always easy to articulate the needs and wants in your mind’s eye. Hinklemade’s approach is to work closely with clients to bring their visions to light— to discover and define those longed-for details and to determine the design style that works best with the character, vibe and location of the space itself. North Carolina natives, Hope and Jake recently returned to the coast to live and, like so many, also work in that place they prefer. Since their return, this duo has worked on projects ranging from complete renovations of large scale hotels and malls, even our own new-location EJW, to small scale redos like their current cozy RV home. Hinklemade understands the power of change and how even minor modifications can make a huge impact in mood, appearance and overall appeal for the place you love most: home.
