Decorist Design Showhouse
How dreamy are these spaces??? The master bath is especially my favorite.
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 makeover each of her spaces, including one master bedroom and bath, three children’s bedrooms + playroom, a living room , dining room, kitchen and lounge, family room, den, library + hallways and entryways. 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, and World Market) to more premium (like Room and Board, Restoration Hardware and exclusives on Chairish).
What is Decorist? They are a collective group of designers, including some celebrity ones, who aim to make interior design affordable and easy. And it’s all done online! Here are some of the features:
- To get started, the online Style Design Profile quiz first involves creating your ideal living room by selecting from numerous sofa styles, tables, lighting, mirrors and wall colors. Decorist uses the result to assign you a style profile—and there are thousands of distinct profiles you could receive. This profile is what they use to send you curated product ideas, and it’s also how they match you with a designer if you decide to do their Decorist Makeover.
- The Decorist Makeover is $199/room, and here’s how it works: you send in photos of your space, budget, Pinterest boards, what you’re looking for, what pieces you want to keep and what you’re looking to replace, and a Decorist designer will send back two design boards, two clickable shopping lists, and a written recommendation from the designer. You can pull whatever you like from the designer’s suggestions—from product ideas to a new way to layout the room. The idea is that you can get those little tips and tricks from the designer, but ultimately, you’re still designing and creating your own space.
- Other cool services include a Q&A feature which provides free access to interior designers + their Room Builder tool to design any space you want with different furniture, accessory and paint options.
This is truly a fun, very approachable and affordable way to makeover any space in your home. I’m strongly considering a room re-do at some point, especially with my small-space San Francisco living situation.
