Happy Monday! Today is very very exciting for The Fig Design as I launch the second half of this business. E-Design is something that really gets me excited, because It is a way of meeting people and creating art that can be done from anywhere in the world!
So what exactly is e-design? The short version: E-Design is an all-online way to form a cohesive design plan for your home. In the past, the client’s role in the design of their home was fairly detached. I think of the stereotype in sitcoms of a flowing entrance by a self-important and overly “artistic” designer (usually wearing a scarf) who dramatically declares “everything must go!” and “I love it!” or “This disgusts me, take it away!” and the client’s naive impulse to do anything the designer says because “well…they’re the expert…” (Later in the episode the client realizes that they like their home just the way it is and they brusquely toss the haughty designer out, against some french-accented and highly pompous objections. The characters drink hot chocolate and feel warm and fuzzy. The end.)
Thankfully, In the last few years the format for “design” has largely shifted to become far more collaborative and hands on! Aided by blogs, HGTV, and internet videos, more and more people are gaining the confidence and desire to do it themselves. In an effort to aid and encourage this mindset, e-design helps give a solid direction and cohesive plan to a DIY approach.
One of the pitfalls of DIY design is that sometimes a lot of time and money can be wasted by not having a solid and cohesive design plan for your space. Thats where e-design comes in! It takes a lot of the expensive guesswork out of designing your home and is a streamlined way to represent YOUR style as accurately as possible for a lot less moolah then an in-person designer.
