e-Design: How does it work? For whom? And what can you expect?

With the popularity of online shopping and new technologies, e-Design appeared few years ago in the Interior Design Industry! It is a simple, quick and affordable new concept. The space is professionally designed without the need of a face to face meeting with your interior designer! Everything is done entirely online (via email, Skype, or Face Time). Nowadays with Pinterest, Instagram or Houzz, people are at one click to see beautifully designed homes, dream homes. And we all want to create a home which looks like what we see online. So you create boards on Pinterest, collect pictures, take inspiration but when it is time to turn it into reality, you often realize that it is not that easy! Lack of time, money or just skills, you need help!

e-Design is a virtual design service which gives people the opportunity to create their dream room while staying at home or at work. It is the perfect solution if you are too busy for an In-Home Consultation or if you live in another part of the country. It is also a great way for clients to get professional advice for their project, that they can do themselves or use their local contractor.

All communication is done via email and phone, your interior designer will provide a plan for creating a designed space that will meet your style, space and budget.

What to expect:

Depending of the designer and packages they offer, you may receive:

- One floor plan with a layout

- A shopping list from retailers or online stores

- One concept board

- One 2D vision of the room

Again depending of the designer's package, you may also have the opportunity to get one or two revisions of the concept board.

It is also important to have one short phone call with your designer to make sure you are on the same page regarding your project.
