When planning a revamp to the home it’s sometimes hard to know where to start. You may know the colours you’re looking to use or perhaps you have a statement sofa that you know you want to be the main focus, however putting your ideas into practice can be difficult.
However, don’t fret. There’s a stylish, easy and cost-effective way to call on some help, if needed.
Created by interior designer, Cornelia De Ruiter, Homewings is a digital platform that allows you to work with trained interior designers, for an affordable price, all from the comfort of your own home. It’s a great service for those who can’t focus their ideas and need some guidance to produce a beautiful looking space.
So how does it work?
It all starts with the style quiz – and if you’re anything like us and like a Buzzfeed quiz, then this is a great start. You may already have a clear idea of what style you have but, come on, it’s a quiz! Simply choose your favourite images and the Homewings team will determine what look fits you best. Complete the full design brief; how do you use your space, what do you want from it, what’s the budget etc. You’ll be offered packages to choose from so get the one which fits you and your budget best. Finally, upload images of your space and also images that you find inspiring – Pinterest is your friend at this point.
Just like Tinder, it’s time to meet your match. All of the designers at Homewings are professionals that have been handpicked from the best interior design schools and studios – so you’re in good hands. The team will look at your style and pair you with the designer that suits the brief best.
With the Classic or Premium packages the process is completely collaborative. You’ll work one-on-one with your designer over two weeks creating a personal style board, refining your ideas, the layout and making sure it’s perfect for you. If you go for the Basic package then following your agreed style concept you’ll receive your tailored product recommendations within a week.
Now it’s time for the transformation! Once all your ideas have been finalised, the designer will send your final design package which includes all the essentials to revamp your room:
- Style concept
- Room layout and visualisation (not included in Basic package)
- Online shopping list
- Set up tips
- Free personal shopping service
You now have all the tools and from there, it’s up to you to complete the look.
Although you don’t get a face-to-face service and you are left to complete the look, for the price that Homewings offer it’s a great service for those who need a starting point and a bit of direction for their decor.
