IN-BOX Interiors ( E-Design Consultation)
In-Box Interiors is a quick, effective and cost-conscious e-design consultation that's done remotely, via e-mail only (no phone calls or Skype) to assist you with the decorating dilemma you are challenged with in a particular room.
I have come to understand that not everyone is in need of full service design or needs a personal consultation with advise on multiple challenges regarding future renovations or new builds. Sometimes it's about tackling a room that is just not finished or for some reason is just not comfortable and you don't know the best way to fix the problem. The formula for this service is based on me offering my professional recommendations through line drawings, general written instructions supporting my drawings and a couple images from on-line catalogues to help you have clear, helpful direction on how to tackle this rooms decor dilemma. You can submit any room you want assistance with.
It's a virtual design consultation and it's as easy as 1, 2, 3.
- Send me your design dilemma explaining what's bothering you about the room with as much informative information as you can. Also include any information about the lighting that exists in the ceiling.
- Send me photos of the 4 walls of the room. The photos of each wall need to be taken straight on (not from an angle if at all possible) and from a distance, so I can see the whole wall in the photos. (Do not submit collage style format photos).
- I then use your submitted photos as a virtual and visual tool with a quick line drawing explaining what my professional recommendation is and send them back to you with the written explanation. I will give you fun and easy design tips, along with a couple photos as visual examples to help you execute these ideas that will inject new life into your space.
Investment: $250.00 + GST (Payable prior to consultation, lead time for a design response is one week. Note: ONLY 2 sessions scheduled per week, based on a first come first serve basis)
