E-Decorating

What is E-Decorating?
E-Decorating is a virtual decorating option that Interior Designer, Vanessa De Vargas created that gives clients the opportunity to retain the design services of an interior designer, even if they live outside of the Los Angeles area. E-Decorating is ideal for residential and commercial projects large and small. All you need to take advantage of E-Decorating is access to a computer, a measuring tape and a camera phone.

Who should E-Decorate?
E-Decorating is ideal for anyone who would like to redecorate multiple rooms in their home or office utilizing the knowledge and experience of interior designer, Vanessa De Vargas.  Some clients may have a limited budget or may only be interested in focusing on reusing their own items and may need a refresh, or perhaps that want to focus on one room at a time. Others may want to completely redo their style and may need all new items for their home or office. With E-Decorating we can create the look you want to achieve, despite time, distance or budgetary restraints. Please keep in mind we provide options to stay within your budget. If we find something that is perfect and might be a little more expensive, we will consider it as an option as well. You may fall in love with it too!

What do you receive with E-Decorating?
As an E-Decorating client, you will receive everything you need to bring the room of your dreams to life. Your E-Décorating correspondence may include: paint chip colors, wallpaper suggestions, ideas to reuse and/or revamp your own items, rugs, lighting and fabric suggestions, window treatment options, accessory and art suggestions and furniture placement. You will also receive Vanessa’s direct links to all of the resources you’ll need to complete your project. All items are available for purchase and should be delivered with in 2 weeks (depending on the manufacturer.)

How do I get started?
Complete and submit the information sheet (click to open) along with 2-4 low-resolution images of the room, room measurements, (we will need a drawing of each wall including the overall dimensions of the room and wall height and please include heaters, windows etc, your budget, and 6-10 links or images representing your inspiration for the room. Please include any Pinterest or Houzz links to show me what your inspiration is. All information is sent electronically via email. Nothing is mailed.

How long does E-Decorating take?
Once your information sheet, room images, measurements, inspiration links and payment have been received, the design process begins. I will also ask you a series of questions to better understand your style and what you like and don’t like. We design each room, one at a time, and each room design takes approximately two-three weeks to be completed and sent back to you. If your project involves multiple rooms or an entire home or office, please email Vanessa for a time estimate.
