“Hello. Nice to Meet You Husband.”

Several times now I’ve seen a commercial for a new reality TV show, “Married at First Sight.” The series, touted as a “social experiment,” premiered Tuesday night on FYI. I did not watch it, but four experts, a sexologist, spiritualist, psychologist and sociologist, attempted to create three perfect couples based on personality profiles, psychological assessments, spiritual counseling and sexology consultations. They whittled down the pool from 625 possible matches to three pairs. The participants agreed to legally marry a complete stranger without ever meeting or speaking to them! They didn’t even know each other’s names!

While much of it is likely for ratings, the concept is crazy! Can you really choose someone based on certain criteria? How do you predict chemistry?

One of the reasons the commercials caught my attention, is as an interior designer, I don’t take on a new client without first determining if we are a good match. A successful project hinges in part on good chemistry between the homeowners and designer. On paper, everything may seem perfect. In person, it can be a different story. The process is extremely personal and in order to tell my clients’ stories through the art of design, they have to trust me and I must get to know them well. My process starts with a phone consultation, followed by an in-person interview or consultation, to allow us to assess if we are a good fit. I can’t imagine starting a new project with an introduction of, “Hello. Nice to meet you client.”

Perhaps one of the couples will be lucky and everything will fall into place. However “Design at First Sight” is not the way I want to create a dream space.

Have you seen the show? What are your thoughts? Would you work with a designer or client without first meeting them?
