Fast, Professional, Affordable Designers
Imagine part of your house transformed into a manifestation of your dream home in just a matter of hours. Does this seem too good to be true? With the help of Designer for a Day, it isn’t.
Designer for a Day is a collaboration of award-winning interior designers Jean Wall and Joan Robinson-Whitaker, who collectively have more than 50 years of design experience. Together they provide a service that redesigns rooms or homes in a short amount of time at an affordable price, all the while utilizing the client’s existing furniture, art and accessories with a limited amount of shopping required.
“The concept is to complete the service within one day or less. It is limited in scope and limited in cost, where a full-on custom-design service is not needed or affordable,” says Wall.
Two years ago, Wall and Robinson-Whitaker were collaborating on a potential project that didn’t transpire.“After brainstorming different ways to attract more business, we had similar ideas of how to approach the business from a different angle,” Robinson-Whitaker explains. “That was to make interior design more accessible, less intimidating, affordable and fun.
Both interior designers specialize in residential properties and commercial spaces.
“We have a short discussion with the client about what we do and what they would like from us. We discuss whether there is a budget for purchasing the items we may need, which can run from $500 to $2,500 and up. Then the client leaves to go to work or shopping,” Wall says, explaining a typical work day.
“We analyze the furniture we have to work with and decide its basic placement for the best effect, then we pull out what we are not going to use and we work fast. Having placed the basics and removed what we are not going to use, we quickly make a list of things we need to purchase. If purchasing is not necessary, we continue to hang art and place accessories. If shopping is necessary, we refine our list in the order of the most efficient use of our time.”
It’s interior design made easy. Wall and Robinson-Whitaker take their clients’ visions and desires to heart and with their creative expertise create a masterpiece.
“The rewards are seeing how much our customers love their spaces after we are through,” Robinson-Whitaker says. “They fall in love with their own things all over again.”
