Online interior design questions I hear often
(so don't feel bad)
Is online interior design right for me?
I hope so! I love the flexibility that the online aspect affords you. After you receive your package, it’s up to you when and where you purchase your items. Getting that bonus in a month? No problem. Buy when it’s right for you.
I also realize it’s not for everyone. If you’re looking for a super hands-on designer who brings over swatches and installs your rooms for you while you’re away for the weekend, online interior design might not necessarily be for you. This is a very independent process.
How long does it take to get my kids room package delivered?
2 weeks (or less). It depends on how many online interior design projects I’m currently crafting. I am also a stay-at-home mama, and this restricts my monthly project limit to four projects in a month. Check with me to see what the waiting list looks like
Will I be able to use furniture or decor that I already have?
Of course! One of the things I am absolutely passionate about when using online interior design is incorporating things that are important to you and your family. I want you represented in your design. Revolutionary, isn’t it? Let’s celebrate those that mean most to you. Your comfort items. Plus, if you want a room that looks straight out of a catalog, you don’t need me to help. That’s what catalogs are made for!
My kids are HARD on furniture. Will this design last?
Yep! Completely on the same page. I have two uber-active little guys and a cat. And I still want stylish things! I understand and can help choose pieces that are tough when they need to be, soft when they need to be and easy to clean
I'm not entirely thrilled with the end product. Can I get a refund?
Once we’ve started exchanging mood boards and ideas, no. There are no refunds. We work closely together during the "getting to know you" and "inspiration" stages. Nothing new will be sprung on you when the Mood Board is presented. Since you cannot “un-see” the plans we work on together, payment is up-front and final
What if I don't have a huge budget?
You know what? I get family life. We're NOT all rolling in dough. But it WILL work. We will work together to make what you have work. One of the great things about online interior design is that you can take your shopping list and buy what you can when you can. If that means holding off to buy that new bed in a month? Do what works.
What makes you different from other designers?
I include things that matter to your family and that no one else has. Family photos. Favorite books. Heirlooms. Handmade with love. I add little inside jokes and individual preferences. Even if it doesn't entirely match.
I understand kids. Rooms for tinies aren't something I "can" do. They're my passion. I've worked with kids my whole life. Education, experience, parenthood.
I understand budgets. No one's budget is bottomless. Although, hey, if you find someone whose is, send them my way! I make yours go as far as it possibly can without sacrificing quality. I know when to save and when to splurge.
Your kiddo's happiness means everything to me. Selfishly, nothing makes me happier than seeing that little face light up. I'm not going to make a room they can't enjoy as a kid.
I shop thoughtfully using local vendors, artists and environmentally conscious products whenever possible.
I’m especially aware of how to make stylish, comfortable rooms that the whole family can enjoy without causing ulcers.
