1. How does virtual interior design / e-decor work?
Virtual e-decor is a perfect option for people who want to take a “DIY” approach to interior design — but still secure expert insights into color palettes, furniture placement and accessorizing.
After our initial phone or Skype consultation, I’ll create a customized decor package with printable room sketches on a CD, as well as real fabric samples and paint swatches. I’ll also provide shopping and styling guidelines, so you can translate your virtual room into a physical space.
I love doing virtual interior design, because it allows me to work with clients from all over the world — not just in my adopted hometown, New York City.

2. How will we get to know each other, if we never meet in person?
We’ll kick-off our design adventure over the phone, or via Skype. Asking questions is a big part of the design process, so every new client gets a little “virtual face-time.” I strive to make my clients feel comfortable and connected – even if they’re a thousand miles away!
After our initial conversation, I ask my clients to complete an extensive questionnaire and tearsheet, to dig deeply into their personal style, design goals and overall vision.
We also communicate via e-mail throughout the design process — I do my best to provide practical tips and plans, every step of the way!
3. How long will my design project take?
In-person & virtual interior design projects usually take 4-6 weeks, from start to finish.
4. Can we use some of my existing furniture?
Absolutely! There’s no need to start from scratch. I’ll never persuade you to part with a beloved family heirloom or signature item — we can find creative ways to place and present “must-keep” pieces.
5. Once I’ve received my virtual decor package, can I still ask you questions?
Definitely. I’m here to guide you through the entire design process. Your virtual design package includes 14 days of unlimited email communication, so you’ll have a chance to ask additional questions, as they arise. In addition you will also have two 30 minute Skype conversation within the 14 days.
6. What if I don’t like a particular element of my decor package?
I’m happy to select up to two additional design options, and update the package.
7. How do we get started?
Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let me know which of my three services you’re interested in, and I’ll e-mail you an invoice and client questionnaire, along with instructions for submitting your room measurements & photos.
After you’ve paid your invoice, we’ll set up a phone or Skype consultation to chat about your personal style & design goals.
I can’t wait to make your home gorgeous, stylish – and happy!
