Hopefully you saw my Instagram post announcing my brand new service!
This idea was born from feedback from you guys! One day on my Instastories I asked what your biggest design dilemmas were and why you would love to hire a decorator. One of the things I gleaned from your responses was that you guys have a really hard time finding things for your home. Specifically rugs, lighting, pillows, and art. I know how long it takes me to source things for clients and that’s with a lot of resources at my fingertips. I realized how daunting that could be to a person who a. doesn’t enjoy it b. doesn’t know where to look c. doesn’t have time d. does’t know what would look good.
I decided to create Source Boards so I can help you find specific items for your space. Maybe you don’t need full design help or maybe that’s not in the budget right now. Source Boards are the perfect solution to have a little help for minimal cost. Since announcing this I have gotten a lot of questions about how it all works so I thought I would do a general FAQ:
Q. How will you know what I like?
A. Based on what you include in your specifications as well as the photo of your room. Seeing your existing décor and hearing what you envision as far as style, color, size, and budget will guide our selections.
Q. What if what I like is a bad design decision?
A. Source Boards are meant to be a quick way to assist you in the design process so although it is not in depth help we will certainly add our two cents if we feel there is a better option! Keep in mind that Source Boards are not an on-going back in forth so if you think you may need more design guidance be sure to check out our other services!
Q. How many options will you send per item?
A. We will send 3 options for each item requested.
Q. What if I don’t like any of the options?
A. Hopefully this does not happen but if it does we are happy to send an additional (1) option. If we still miss the mark the search will continue but for an additional cost. We aim to please so hopefully the first round gives you plenty to work with!
Q. How will I know where to purchase the item(s)?
A. Each Source Board will include images as well as purchasing information.
Q. How quickly will I get my board(s) back?
A. Source Boards will typically be returned 1 week from payment, sometimes sooner. You will receive confirmation of your payment with a “due date.”
Q. Can I request a Source Board even if I am not local to Charlotte?
A. Yes! This is the great part about this service- you can be anywhere in the US (maybe even abroad) and this help is available to you!
Q. What if I love my items but then get stuck on how to style or how to complete the room?
A. Just let us know and we can provide further help! We also offer Design Boards for e-design clients, Full Design help for room makeovers, and hourly help to tie up loose ends. Tell us where you’re stuck and we will provide the additional help needed to finish your space!
Q. How do I get started?
A. Shoot us an email and include all of the things in the list above!
