E-Design Service {Launch}


I'm excited to share something today that I've been working on behind the scenes for awhile - an e-design service! I've always loved interior design and have been informally helping friends and family out with creating homes that they love, are beautiful and function well for a long time and decided it was high time to formalize this service and offer it to a wider audience. I've named my company Mix and Match Design Company and I'd love for you to check it out!

I want to introduce y'all to my e-design and installation services today in a Q&A format. This will help you understand what I do - feel free to visit my website or email me at chaney@mixandmatch.com if you'd like to learn more.

What is e-design?

E-design is an affordable design service conducted solely via email and phone (and even FaceTime or Skype if needed!). There is a range of services from consultation by the hour all the way up to a full room package.

How does it work and what do you receive with an e-design package?

For the full room custom package or finishing touches package, you'll start by taking a short survey to assess the needs for your room or space. That's how I'll learn more about you, your style, budget and wish list. You'll also email me photos and measurements of the room, and inspiration images for what you'd like it to look like. Pinterest is a great resource! After that, I'll compile the information and send you a style board - that's a visual representation like the ones you see below - of items I recommend for your space and a source list.

Once I send you the style board, you'll have a chance to make two rounds of changes. When the final design is complete, I'll send an updated source list, and you'll place the order and install the pieces in your home.




The consultation service is what you make it - we can talk paint colors, organization, space planning, etc. It's less about specific pieces and more about idea generation.

The in-stock design boards (coming soon!) are like a room-in-a-box. I design rooms based on different styles, and you can purchase the source lists for those rooms for a flat fee. Then it's up to you to make the purchases and install the items in your home on your timeline.

Who is this service for?

Anyone who wants to create a space they love!

A few examples might be:
  • A couple that's furnishing a new house and wants help creating a home they love
  • A graduate student who needs to furnish an apartment, but doesn't know where to start and is on a shoestring budget
  • Someone who is making a cross-country move who wants to start over with new pieces in his or her new place
  • A young professional moving into his or her first place and wants to "graduate" from hand-me-pieces from his or her college days
The great part about e-design is that once you have the style board, you're free to do with it what you will. You can go online and buy everything on the list or use it as a jumping off point and go find similar pieces yourself. It's up to you!

What kind of budgets do you work with?

All of 'em! There is a flat fee for the e-design service, and then I'll only shop for pieces for you that are in your budget. A few examples of my favorite places to shop are West Elm, Target, Ikea, Wayfair and RugsUSA. You'd be surprised at what I can do on a budget!

How much do the e-design services cost?

We have a full range of packages and services available starting at $50 for an hour long consultation to $200 for a full room design board. See the website for more details!

  1. Hi Chaney! My name is Hannah and I've commented on your blog once or twice before. I just barely started a blog and wanted to say thanks for being one of those bloggers that has inspired me to start blogging! Your personality comes across in your writing, your blog design is so professional, and I feel like we have the same taste interior design-wise. Anyways, thanks for the inspiration! (If you want to check out my blog, it's www.viewfromtheairport.com)

    And good luck with your new business! My aunt and I were seriously just talking about what a great idea it would be to start a business like this! Pinterest has totally changed the interior design game, so now people kind of have a vision of what they want their home to look like but might not know where to start to really transform their space and achieve the feel they're looking for by themselves. There is totally a market for this, way to jump on it! You're really good at working with what you've got and making it look high-end and classy on a budget, I'm sure you'll have very happy clients! If I had some extra money I'd totally hire you to help me figure out if there was a solution for hiding these pesky green and pink plaid couches we live with in my husband's grandparents' basement (they come with the apartment so I can't sell/replace them and they're not the kind of couch that slipcovers would fit on and I feel like they just cramp my style!) Anyways, I wish you the best of luck with your business! And as a little tip from doing a little bit of online/virtual/freelance/creative work for people, make sure you keep track of the time you spend working so that you know you're charging enough for your time and not getting taken advantage of (learned that the hard way!) Best of luck!
