I've been helping clients with their decorating projects for over 20 years, so it's safe to say that I know what I'm talking about when it comes to affordable home decorating ideas.
Here is a link to my interior decorating/home staging website, Simply Designed. It will show you more about who I am and what I do. I'm sure you'd like to know who you'e going to be working with!
Virtual Design services are tricky...I have offered them in the past and have learned what the inherent pitfalls are and how to overcome them. The reality is that if we work together, we're not face-to-face, and I'm not standing in your home, viewing first hand what your decorating needs are. That can be a challenge, because I'm relying on you to give me the most important information so I can give you the best help and advice.
But, no worries, my friend! The wonders of technology allow us to communicate in a number of ways:
The burden is on me to make sure that I ask you for enough information about your project, budget and preferences to give you the guidance that you are searching for.
Working with someone you have never met and will never see in person might be a bit scary for some of you, and I understand that for sure. I work with clients who want to see me, have me shop with them, spend time with them, listen to them talk about their decorating concerns, give me a hug when I leave, etc.
If you are a person who needs that type of personal interaction, virtual decorating help might not be the best way to go.
However, if you are perfectly okay with email sharing of photos, perhaps a phone conversation, a Skype call, and you actually would prefer that no one steps inside your front door, this could be a great way to get some home decorating assistance.
Most of lead busy lives, and this type of decorating help might fit the schedule best! We can work at your pace, whatever that may be. I'm fine with that.
Love Your Home...10 Secrets to Creating a Space You'll Love is a guide I wrote to help readers understand (and not be afraid of) the process of decorating a home, room or space.
It's a relatively quick read with photos, 'homework' and lots of helpful advice. I break the process down into 10 easy-to-follow steps, so you can confidently tackle a home decorating project and not be afraid of making costly mistakes.
I would suggest that you start with my guide first, it is very reasonably priced at just $12.95. That may give you just what you need to 'love your home' again!
For some, a bit more personal guidance is desired, and that is one of the wonderful ways to utilize my Virtual Design services. At an affordable $35.00 per hour, just about everyone can have an expert Interior Decorator at their fingertips.
...we don't have to, and most likely won't, spend an entire hour together in one sitting or conversation. If we do, that's fine.
But most of the time that hour of design service is spread over several time periods. Some of that time might be used, by me, if I need to research something for you.
For example, you might want to know the best type of coffee table and end tables for your family room, and want me to give you some options. Part of the time you purchase will be spent on my search for those items for you.
Every client is different, so rest assured that I will handle your project appropriately.

Whatever your particular need is, we can figure it out together! Simply complete the purchase and information request below, and we'll get started.
Important little details you should know:
* Virtual design services are not refundable, so please purchase just one hour of time if you're not sure what you'll need. You can always purchase more time later.
* Our success depends on my asking for the right information, but it also hinges on your willingness to be specific in what you tell me, as well as sending me photos of your project space as I request them. We'll be most successful when we work together!
* My clients will tell you that I am very reasonable and always err to the side of the client, so you can be confident that you'll receive the time and attention you have paid for.
