When it comes to interior design, let’s just say that my spirit is willing but my flesh is weak. I admire fabulous design, but possess neither the knack nor the bottomless pocketbook to bring it to life without some serious help.
If I were in LA, I could rely on Designers Call–brainchild of Laura Fishman, owner of LA’s fancypants Storm Interiors–which travels around town in their DesignWagen providing eco-friendly, affordable design advice for your home. But since I’m not anywhere near LA, I get to try out the new Design Online service. Basically you can access design services from anywhere in the country, by phone or email, for a very reasonable cost. Just send some photos of your design-challened space and your’e off.
There’s an entire gallery of before-and-after magic on the site, but I’ve gotta say that the bathroom revamp has mesmerized me. Excuse me while I go take some pictures of… um… my entire house.
