Homepolish Has Shuttered: What To Do Now?
Working with an interior designer on your home is a serious collaboration with many different moving parts—be it overhauling your living room to be more family-friendly or revamping your master bedroom to suit your aesthetic now. While there are always challenges, what happens when your designer is suddenly unable to finish your project for you?
It was precisely the case for many renters and homeowners when online interior design company Homepolish closed its doors recently. After announcing it was going out of business within the next month, Homepolish clients were left to figure out on their own what to do with projects they had already started. If you’re at a loss with your design project that’s well on its way or how to find a new designer to take it over, keep reading.
What happened to Homepolish?
Founded in 2012, Homepolish made a splash as a millennial-minded home startup that offered affordable online interior design services. The company quickly gained a following, thanks to its highly curated Instagram feed, which appealed to an audience of young, tech-savvy professionals that ultimately became Homepolish clients. However, despite its popularity, the company faced operational and financial pressures and eventually ran out of money to keep the business going. It's unfortunate that similar to Laurel & Wolf, a Homepolish competitor that shuttered overnight, even with high demands for online interior design services, it can be especially challenging to scale a new business to meet the growing needs of the consumer.

How exactly does Decorist work? Simple. It's 3 easy steps.
Step 1: Take Our Style Quiz
To get started, you'll be asked to take a simple and fun Style Quiz. Once it's completed, we’ll match you with an interior designer aligned with your style. Or you can browse our roster of Classic, Elite, and Celebrity designers to select your own.
Step 2: Collaborate On Your Vision
You’ll begin working with your designer online. This is your chance to share your vision, let your designer know what you're looking for, and address any design dilemmas you're looking to solve. Armed with this information, your designer will get to the drawing board. Then in two to three weeks, you’ll be presented with beautiful full room designs for your home.
Step 3: Hand Over The Heavy-Lifting
Our in-house purchasing team will order all the furniture and handle the logistics for you, so you don’t have to lift a finger. And better yet, your furniture and decor will ship for free (excluding freight and white-glove items). Then all you have to do is arrange the pieces like in your designs. Simple!
Once I sign up, what can I expect from Decorist with my project?
We work exclusively with experienced designers who are committed to creating a beautiful home that you will love for years to come. We are also hell-bent on client satisfaction from start to finish, and we’ve got hundreds of five-star Decorist reviews on Google and Yelp to prove it! Here's what else you can expect:

Perfectly Personalized Designs
With design consultations at home retailers, you're likely getting a room that's designed for hundreds of other customers with the same furnishings. At Decorist, your designs are personalized to your style down to the last detail, with rooms that show off your aesthetic and feel perfectly "you." It's why every Decorist designer space is truly one-of-a-kind.
Real Design Industry Experts
You'll likely recognize a handful of our designers from the top shelter and design publications. Our interior designers are professionals with experience in a wide range of projects that vary in scale, style, and budget. So you can rest assured that your finished home will be exactly how you imagined it (and more). In fact, one of the most common pieces of feedback we receive from clients is how well their designer understood their style. In addition to our designers, we also work with the best craftsmen and industry experts. Need a recommendation for a painter? We've got you covered.
Virtual Design, Simplified
The Decorist design process takes place completely online, and it's fast and easy no matter where you're based. There's no need to schedule an appointment. Simply message your designer from your phone or on your computer anytime, anywhere—perfect if you have a busy schedule and are always on-the-go. The whole process takes just two to three weeks, so you’ll have a final room design in no time.
Shopping Made (Super) Easy
To make the process even easier, we have an entire purchasing team dedicated to ordering all of your gorgeous new furniture and decor. This means you can check out with one single shopping cart—no need to visit dozens of different sites or shops. Plus, you'll get free shipping on your purchases (excluding freight and white-glove items). Have a return to make? We’ll handle those, too!
