Sometimes we spend too much time trying to get our homes just right — the couch must go against this wall, the walls must be neutral colors, all the fixtures must be the same — that we become blinded and can’t see other alternatives. I know I’ve been there many times.
So we’re partnering with Katie Moore of Olios Design, LLC a full-service residential and small business interior design firm, based in Old Town Alexandria, to offer a special discount on a 2-hour in-home design consultation for a lucky DIY Del Ray reader.
What does this mean? Katie Moore will come to your house, take a look at any problem areas, and offer advice on the best way to make the most of your home. She’ll make recommendations for how to place your furniture, what paint colors to use, and how to use fixtures and accessories to create a unique, thoughtful and unified look.
Thinking of a kitchen or bathroom renovation? She can help you ponder cabinet colors and styles, tiles, countertops, and floors. You can spend your two hours in one room, two rooms, or your whole house — it’s all up to you.
Olios typically charges $150 for this service, but we’ve worked out a 50 percent discount for a local reader (in Del Ray or the immediate surrounding area). Your 2-hour consult by a professional designer will be only $75. Leslie and I will come along on the consult, photograph the problem areas, and discuss Katie Moore’s suggestions and tips in a blog post. Katie will also discuss her recommendations on her blog.
If you would like more information about this special offer, email diydelray[at]yahoo.com. Please indicate where you live, what size and style home you live in, and list any specific rooms or concerns. With colder weather and the holidays right around the corner, now’s the perfect time to give your home a little TLC.
