An overdose of wall decals combined with poor paint-picking skills has left your humble abode a hot mess.
Organize that DIY energy with help from online home decorating service I Heart Design by Avenue.
Select a room style (vintage Bleecker Street, whimsical Rue Claudel). Upload photos of your space with a few basic measurements and preferences (keep the worn-but-beloved armchair; ditch everything else).
For a reasonable fee ($3.50 per square foot), I Heart Design will send you a custom design box containing two possible floor plans with selected furnishings, paint and window treatment recommendations, and a miniature tool kit (tape measure, Post-it notes, masking tape).
The L.A.-based team’s vision includes flea market finds (vintage seltzer bottles, stock market tumblers), large pieces from national retailers (Anthropologie, CB2), and finishing touches from trade-specific vendors (Arteriors lighting, Global Views accessories).
Decide whether you want the company to purchase some — or all — of the items on your behalf or simply execute the ideas on your own. Either way, it’ll be a home improvement.
