A Virtual Interior Decorator Will Be your New Best Friend; Her words, Not ours
“When I graduated from college with a master’s degree in education, got my very first job and apartment, I never in a million years imagined that I would hire an interior decorator.
Colleen was twenty-five when she signed the lease for her very first “big girl” apartment. She created a pinterest board, titled it “Apartment Decorating on a Budget,” and went to town.
Colleen wanted people to walk into her apartment and think to themselves, “wow, how adult.” Her pinterest board was mix of crafty organizational hacks, DIY wall art, and apartment theme ideas. It was all cute, but nothing was cohesive. She couldn’t decide on one theme, so she pinned them all.
Finally, the day came. The movers dropped off Colleen’s boxes and she proceeded to organize her things: a hodge podge of donated family furniture, college leftovers, and a handful of early housewarming gifts. When everything was all said and done, she hadn’t instituted anything on her Pinterest board. Colleen looked around her apartment and in one long exhale she whispered, “crap.”
“I remember walking into my friend Antoinette’s apartment and feeling downright angry! Ugh! How did she do it??! My first reaction to her decor was, ‘wow, how adult.’ That’s when she told me about Kept’s online room design process.”
It wasn’t long before we received a call from Colleen. She said she was desperate for help. She was overwhelmed and lacking confidence. In just a matter of days we had scheduled an initial skype interview, assessed Colleen’s needs (and wants), and created a quote that would work hand in hand with her “apartment decorating on a budget” vision (or lack thereof).
“Talking with Chelsea, the lead designer on Kept’s team, was such a relief. Before the call, I remember feeling self-conscious about my ignorance and lack of ideas. I KNEW I needed lots of help. Chelsea made me feel so comfortable during our conversation--I called my mom right away to tell her about our conversation and I said, ‘I mean, I think she’s my new best friend. Chelsea is going to give my apartment a makeover! I can’t get over how easy it was.”
We have said it before, and we will keep saying it! Virtual interior design is easy, affordable and available to EVERYONE!
Not everyone has a knack for design. Not everyone can seamlessly organize apartment theme ideas into a cohesive plan. That’s okay! We make it easy and work with a variety of budgets so that everyone, no matter their age, interest, or abilities can have the virtual room makeover of their dreams (even if they don’t know what they’re dreaming of).
