"Best in Show
Decorist, the site known for changing the interior design game by providing affordable expert advice to novice decorators online, has realized its virtual project powers in the stunning San Francisco home of its founder. Ten rooms received inspiring transformations courtesy of the site's go-to design talents and a few special guests including 30Collins, Will Wick, and House of Honey."
"If you were to design your dream house, it may look like this: a mix of affordable pieces, say from CB2, and unique, pricier items, say from 1stdibs. Well, Decorist — the interior design site we've written about before — read your mind and did just that. The online decorating brand offers interior design services with a package that includes room layouts and clickable shopping lists for any budget. Last week at the San Francisco home of founder Gretchen Hansen, the Decorist staff basically replicated that process in real life by creating a virtually designed house."
"Create A One-Of-A-Kind Space With These Creative Decor Tips."
"The First 100% Virtually-Designed Show House Is a Stunner. Gretchen Hansen, the CEO and founder of home interior design startup Decorist offered up her recently-remodeled residence as the first 100% virtually-designed home."
"How 5 Classic TV Show Living Rooms Would Look Today
“We chose the seating area of the iconic Brady Bunch living room,” says Chrissy Burgess, head of design services at Decorist.com, where homeowners can take a free style quiz to create their profile and get daily suggestions of new decor finds, curated by Decorist designers. “The green color story, mixing of materials and textures, statement accessories—it was all ripe for reinvention.” How it Works: At Decorist.com, a room project costs $299, while Ask a Designer and Room Builder services are offered for free."
"People with style seem to naturally ooze the It-factor that make their lives look like the stuff of Instagram dreams. You know the type: They’re impeccably dressed, the best hosts and hostesses, and masters at creating chic yet effortless homes. But fear not! You too can craft a naturally sophisticated, style-centric space by incorporating the below items."
"I have admired the homes done by Tamara Kaye-Honey of House of Honey for years; she has this refined yet fun sensibility that I just love. Yesterday, during a visit to Decorist founder Gretchen Hansen’s house, I had the pleasure of meeting the Los Angeles-based interior designer. Tamara was enlisted to work on Gretchen’s living room, and the entire scheme was developed virtually (Decorist is a site that specializes in e-design)."
THE SAN FRANCISCO SHOWHOUSE WE WISH WE COULD AIRBNB
"The only thing better than getting lost in Pinterest home décor ideas is seeing it come to life in a real home. Sure, showhouses aren’t exactly “lived in” but they do give you a great idea of what some of the décor and art you covet would look like in real life. An extra plus: showhouses let you envision your fantasy life free of real-world clutter. Imagine that!And on that note, we bring you inspirational photos of a few of our favorite rooms from the lovely Decorist Showhouse which opened for one day only in San Francisco this month. Every room was designed by the pros using Decorist’s personal home design platform."
"Last week, our friends at Decorist revealed their fabulous Virtual Show House – featuring 20 rooms designed by 15 different designers – and we were lucky enough to get a personalized tour and meet some of the very talented designers who worked on the project. The SF-based company makes personal home design easy for any style and any budget by matching users with designers who give expert design advice and recommend the perfect pieces for your space and budget."
"Last week I attended the one-day preview of this year’s Decorist Showhouse and I was in awe of every single room I walked into. The owner of this gorgeous 4-level home had the Decorist team project each of her spaces Each designer responsible for decorating each room was also present to provide more info about the space and the pieces they had selected, ranging from affordable (like West Elm, Anthropologie, andWorld Market) to more premium (like Room and Board, Restoration Hardware and exclusives onChairish).What is Decorist? They are a collective group of designers, including some celebrity ones, who aim to make interior design affordable and easy."
"What makes Decorist such a unique startup is that it takes a highly personal industry and conveniently situates high-quality design services on the web, where everyone can access them."
“...the site's team of "treasure-hunters" hand picks every one of the finds customers see. (Translation: You don't have to sign up for every flash-sale site to find that one perfect rug you've been hunting for -- these experts will do it for you.)"
"it's everything you love about blogs like Apartment Therapy and The Selby, shopping sites like West Elm and Joss and Main, along with affordable personal consultation from interior design experts"
"Through a free, interactive design profile quiz, Decorist determines your individual style and provides daily, hand-picked home décor and furniture finds. Whether your style is traditional, modern, or eclectic, Decorist offers three affordable designer services, delivered directly to your inbox. That’s pretty awesome, right?"
"We are big fans of learning new ways to enhance our homes through home design. One online website that is making it easier is Decorist, an online destination that makes interior design personal, affordable and easy for the everyday consumer."
"Bottom line: Spot on. (Though I must admit to being a bit miffed that the nuances of my design sensibilities could be discerned so easily.)"
"I love that my design plan doesn’t require me to buy my products through the interior designer, which means much better prices and the ability to stage in my plan over time. At this price point, this is an interior design service that I will use many times over."
"I don’t know about you, but I think they hit that on the nail! I definitely can’t afford a full-fledged interior designer for my home--and even if I could, I wouldn't want to. I like to be the one in charge, and I want our place to reflect my taste ... But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t times when I need some “bite-sized” help!"
"Decorist just launched and looks really compelling — get real interior design advice at realistic, flat rates."
