What is E-Decorating and how does it work?

E-Decorating is a new design option from Edit by Virginia that gives clients the opportunity to retain Virginia Bell’s interior design services, regardless of their physical location.  This design approach is ideal for anyone who would like professional design help at a fraction of the cost of a traditional decorator.  Some clients may have a limited budget or may only be interested in focusing on one room at a time. Others may prefer to have a more independent approach, but would like some professional guidance. Complete the style questionnaire and provide photos and measurements of the rooms you want to decorate.  In two to three weeks, you will receive an e-inspiration board with color palettes, fabric swatches, furniture picks, even artwork.  Then let your DIY instincts kick in, and adapt as many of Virginia’s suggestions as time and money will allow.

How do I get started?
Complete and submit the information sheet along with the six low-resolution images requested and room measurements (please see “how to measure” page). All information is sent electronically to virginiabell@editbyvirginia.com. Nothing is mailed.

What do I receive with E-Decorating?
As an Edit by Virginia E-Decorating client, you will receive everything you need to bring the room of your dreams to life. Your e-inspiration board will include design concepts such as furnishings, art & accessories, wallpaper & paint, etc.; a floor plan showing the placement of your furniture, paint color samples, a detailed shopping list of all the design elements (which can all be purchased locally or online), and tips on how to put your new space together.

How long does the E-Decorating process take?
Once your information sheet, room images, measurements, inspiration links and payment have been received, the design process begins. Virginia will design each room, one at a time, and each room design will take approximately two to three weeks to be completed and sent back to you. If your project involves multiple rooms or an entire home or office, please email Edit by Virginia for a time estimate.
