By working with me, you’ll create the enduring forever home you’ve worked so hard for. Cut through the clutter and overwhelm to make decorating fun – like it should be. The decisions you need to make for your home renovation and decorating projects are big-ticket decisions, and I understand this. I help you make them with confidence and to take action quickly.
I help women who are frustrated and potentially even a little embarrassed about their home become house proud women. I work with you to create a home that welcomes family and friends by reflecting your timeless classic style.
Homes that have been well designed through innovative, passive solar design principles not only reduce your carbon footprint but also save you money through reducing your running costs which in most cases will increase the resale value of your home.
Fed up with free tools, I gave paid services a go. I was first introduced to e-interior design startup Havenly a few years ago at SXSW. The service promises to create a mood board, layout, and a shopping list to help make implementing the design easy — all under a flat rate instead of an hourly bill you might get with an in-person designer. (Havenly starts at $19 for a consultation, while the full experience is $169 for a bare room, with help on where to lay out each piece.)
Faced with this task, I looked to e-interior design services for help. You may have seen ads about them in your inbox, Instagram, or on flyers at your local big brand furniture store. These services promise to make revamping your home as easy as a few clicks on a computer, so I put a few of them to the test to see if paying someone to restyle your house is worth the investment.
Havenly starts with a style quiz where you select photos of rooms you like and answer a few personality questions. You can select the level at which you want to be involved in the process, or say screw it and let your designer take the wheels. Then, you’re presented with a few color schemes and mood boards to rate, before you’re asked to upload photos of the room and any relevant inspiration pics. All this information allows Havenly to match you with an in-house designer that best suits your style and needs.
