Moving to a new home is exciting and overwhelming at the same time. You get to start fresh in a new space and maybe even a new town. Scary and fun at the same time. Then on top of it you have to pack, move it all, and unpack. You know, the “fun” part. Right?
I have something that can ease a little bit of that stress and give you one less thing to worry about during this time. I call it Move-in Decorating. I know, not very original, but oh well.
It’s your furniture and move-in decorating plan put together by me. Now you can move on to the rest of your to-do list. When you move in to your new home you can whip out that plan, follow it, and not have to worry about whether everything will fit. I’ve already done that part for you.
Move-in Decorating Project Floor Plan
The image above is from a client who called and said that she had bought a new home and needed my help with a move-in decorating plan. She had moved many times over the years and this was to finally be her “grown-up” home. She wanted help with placing the new furniture that would arrive on move-in day and what accessories she should get to go with the new look. Plus, how to blend in the décor items she already had.
For every project, I start with a Design Questionnaire. This helps you (the client) figure out your likes and dislikes from color, fabrics, and art to design style. It also gives me an idea of how you intend to use each room in your home.
Besides the questionnaire, one thing I always ask in a Design Work Session is for you (the client) to describe the picture you have in your mind of the finished room and how you want it to feel when you walk in the door. This one question tells me A LOT!
Using the measurements given to me, I then drew up a conceptual design plan for her space focusing on the great room. That is the first room you see when you walk in the front door and she wanted help creating her “grown up” space. I gave her a floor plan using the pieces she said were going to be in the room, plus a few that I added as an example of what could be done.
Move-in Decorating Project Floor Plan in 3D
The image above is a bird’s eye view in 3D of the great room that I created from the floor plan, paint colors, and finishes I was given with the furniture and placement suggestions. Not all of the pieces pictured are in the final design. That’s okay. The conceptual design that I drew up is for reference only.
When you purchase an e-design, you get a list of furniture and accessories suggestions with online links from me that you can purchase or change to your heart’s content.In a full room design, when I do the purchasing, the end result looks almost exactly like the 3D renderings. Or if you decide to purchase what’s on the list, you get the exact look pictured. It’s up to you.
Below are the rest of the images I sent to my client for her to use as reference when she put her brand new living room together. She absolutely loved it!
