one of the things i get asked the most these days is, “can you recommend a good interior designer?”. it’s actually rare that i know a ton of interior designers because typically the price range for projects like that are way above my d*s budget. but these days i’m slowly starting to hear about designers and groups that are offering interior design services to those on a smaller budget. one of my favorites is a group called “decorator in a box” run by interior design annie pauza. annie and her team set out to create custom interiors online that would allow them to work with clients across the country on small budgets. decorator in a box offers prices on a per-room basis (ranging from $250-$500) that includes things like (sent 2 weeks after your consult):
- a note from the designer
- instructions on how to begin
- a color reference board
- a design book with a hand-drawn space plan
- a shopping list for your space plan
if you’re in the market for something simpler, you can also hire DIAB to pick paint colors, wallpaper, do space layouts, and design custom window treatments. i love the idea of making interior design more accessible and a la carte, so if you’re looking for some design help, click here to check out decorator in a box’s site.
