So what is E-Design? You’ve been seeing that word a lot lately but not sure what the heck it means!
Well, E-Design is one of the most innovative and affordable approach for hiring and working with an Interior Designer. In a nutshell, it's a unintimidating Online Virtual Decorating | Design Service.
Living a busy life while raising four children of my own I can relate to the words time and budget! That having been said, I’ve created affordable personalized eDesign packages with flat rate pricing that’s unique from concept to implementation. Giving you the ability and convenience of working with me from home despite where you live.
This process is focused more towards creating step by step custom designs. Having a design plan narrowed down within a few weeks. All of our communication is either done by Client Portal, Pinterest, email or Video Chat (depending on package) which allows you to have more flexibility in your schedule for friends & family.
Who is E-Design For?
People with active lifestyles, DIYers, and now my empty nesters who are more active than ever before! Hello! I’m speaking from experience. You won’t catch me in a rocker!!
Hiring an Interior Designer to help balance your life the traditional way can compete with juggling a career or balancing family and children activities. These traditions usually include scheduling meetings, attending shopping trips, and arranging orders for decorations. No disrespect for one or the other. I’ve worked traditional design many years for clients before I transitioned to solely E-Design. Both avenues are a Beast! I firmly believe that there is plenty of room for both design avenues and that each one meets a specific need.
That is where my services come in handy. No extra scheduling and no required shopping trips. I handle all the creative design content work that allows you to receive all services from the comfort of your home! Meaning, I can save you time and money with my online platform by creating your personal unique design style.
Real talk, hiring an E-Designer is not for everyone. If you're more comfortable with someone guiding you through every step in the process, shopping trips, and detailed construction documents, then I would definitely seek out a local designer. On the other hand, if you don’t mind busting out your tape measurer and putting up paint samples, E-design might be the solution to your decorating needs. This isn’t an all encompassing list, however it will give you a good idea if E-Design | local designer would be a better fit for you!
The Way It Works
Before any design service process begins
Payment is required in the full amount before any eDesign process begins.
Depending on which package you have chosen, the process can take up to one to two weeks for completion.
Choose Your Package
Once payment is received, I will email you my Identity Questionnaire which covers everything from design style, color and fabric preferences to a realistic budget.
Side bar…have you every heard the saying…”you get what you paid for,” Let’s be real! Creating a bedroom, living or dining room from scratch for $1000, wouldn’t be realistic. Not that I can’t do it, I won’t! The quality wouldn’t be the same.
I’m passionate about what I do and my work speaks for itself.
My desire has always been to provide my clients with good quality pieces and furniture that will withstand its environment.
Be as descriptive as possible so I can get a good sense of your personality and design style, to create a design you will love.
After I have received the Identity Questionnaire, your assignment begins!
First take plenty of good bright & clear pictures or video of every wall. Sketch of the overall room including; overall measurements of windows, doors, outlets, light switches, and vent placements. Measurements of any existing furniture items you want to work into the new design.
Whew! I know that seems like a lot, this may require a second person to help assist you to speed up the process! Now, for the last part to your assignment I’ll need for you to upload everything to me! And that’s it, your all done! Great job!!
the design process begins
Now the fun starts!! Within 5 business days, you will receive an invitation to a secret Pinterest Board where we will collaborate on the project. We must follow each other to do this.
