E Design Services
What is e design?
E design is a fresh trend in interior design where design has no boundaries. Through this service, you are able to get Somebody’s Home interior design assistance from anywhere in the world at an affordable price. You get all the benefits of the design experience such as color scheme, furniture layout, and style consultation without paying the costs of home visits or hands-on experience from a full-service interior design firm. The project is easily done via email and Skype from the comfort of your own home.
Is e design for me?
E design is collaboration between designer and client at its best. If you are in need of inspiration, guidance, or complete design assistance, and are not afraid to do a little leg-work, this service is right for you. When complete, you can feel satisfied with participating in the creation of your amazing space.
This service is for you if you:
- are done with wasting time and money on a room that doesn’t quite work
- can recognize your space needs professional help and can take honest opinions as useful feedback
- can step back and let me do the designing of the entire room as opposed to piece by piece
- are open-minded to different styles, colors, etc.
- are OK with purchasing items online
- are action-oriented and are willing to make your unique plans come to life
How does it work?
Step 1: Use the Design Tools to give me an understanding of the space needing design. Make sure to highlight its good points (great natural light, built-in cabinets, original hardwood floors) and its challenging qualities (awkward angles, dated cabinets, low ceilings).
Step 2: A Skype/phone conversation between you and the designer. We will talk about the ways that you use the room and your design goals, plus exchange some inspiring interiors images via Pinterest boards.
Step 3: The designer puts together a concept board. This serves as a style check, to make sure that both parties are on the same page.
Step 4: We get to work creating that perfect new space! We will reuse as many existing pieces as possible while also sourcing exciting new pieces that fit your budget.
Step 5: You will receive a customized full e design plan
