If you have always thought about hiring a professional interior designer to decorate your home–or just spruce up a room–you can now do so from the comfort of your keyboard–at a flat fee starting at just $79!
Interior design company Havenly.com–hailed as “Uber for Interior Design”–has simplified the process of creating the room of your dreams, using your ideas, photos, and your own professional interior designer. It’s basically a one-stop interior design shop. You simply create a profile at Havenly.com, answer some questions about your style preferences, and share photos, room size, and budget. You will then select a designer, with whom you collaborate during the creative process.
Next, you will schedule a phone call with your designer to discuss what you are looking for. Approximately four to five business days later, your designer will create two custom concept renderings, which includes photographs of your room superimposed with suggested paint color, window treatments, furnishings, etc. You can then can shop for all your pieces through Havenly.com, which guarantees the best possible prices for your items (no more searching for products at a multitude of websites)! From furnishings to pillows, Havenly offers premium products curated by top-notch interior designers. Once you are finished shopping, Havenly will order your items and handle delivery arrangements. Havenly profits from commission with over 200 decor and furniture vendors partnering with the company, including Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, Restoration Hardware, and other popular stores.
Havenly employs more than 200 designers working throughout the United States. For quality control, the designers are vetted and trained, and all of their work is checked. Each designer has his or her areas of design expertise, including such styles as contemporary, rustic, and mid-century modern. Designers can incorporate your favorite existing furnishings into any design, and you will be in complete control of the budget for each room.
“What we always say is ‘Everyone deserves a beautiful home,'” said Lee Mayer, CEO of Havenly, who was inspired to create the company after moving into a new home. “I remember sitting on the floor of my empty living room, hunched over a laptop trying to figure out what sofa I wanted, thinking there has got to be a better way. We can connect people looking for more affordable design with young designers looking to build their portfolios,” said Mayer.
