Decorate Your Home from Home

In today’s busy world we all have less time to accomplish everything we want to do. Creating a perfect home might always seem to be on the back burner. It doesn’t have to be that way. Make it easy on yourself. Take advantage of the many ways to make your home the way you want it to be, without leaving your home! Build your decorating theme around something you love. Maybe its a color, a collection, artwork, or a piece of furniture. Use that item as the launching pad to define your style. To maximize your budget and time, start with a Design-by-Mail. Right from your computer you can choose your lighting, furniture, paint colors and accessories. I provide you a design plan so you can start your shopping. With a customized design in hand, you can shop on the internet at your leisure. You will save you time and money purchasing the best items to suit your style. Contact your favorite small shops (like mine) and ask for photos of available products. Most shops should be able to email you photos and coordinate delivery or shipping. Through the Design by Mail service, I am available, via email and phone, to consult with you to make the best selections for your project. The most important element of a design project is to be organized and focused to make the right choices. It will all fall into place and the result will be fabulous. You will wonder why you didn’t tackle it sooner. Start today! Julie Fergus, ASID is a nationally recognized interior designer.
