Bite the Bullet

Monday, January 13, 2014

I have been passionate about design for many years, for the past year I have pondered about starting a design blog.  Then I ready that most bloggers, at least good ones, spend 5-6 hours per day writing blogs.  Not to mention the time it takes to complete projects, photograph them, etc.  That is not what I want to do. Although, I would not mind if Krylon or Rustoleum decided to send me samples of their new colors to try out on my projects.  If you know me then you know I am also working on refinishing some piece of furniture.  I digress, the point is that I want to spend more time designing.  Not writing.  As a result, I created Robin's Nest Design as a very cost effective way to help folks that are not so passionate about design but want to "Beautify your nest, beautify your life."  If you fall into this category, please reach out to me as I have plans starting at just $50.  I can help you find that perfect piece or figure out what to do in an awkward or unloved spot in your home.  Or I can create a virtual design of your room with new paint, furniture, window treatments and accessories.  My goal is not to do full blown interior design, I will not come to your house and paint.  I will send you a board that will show you how awesome your room will look once YOU (or a contracted painter) paint it.

 Custom Mood Board $150 
•A mood board which includes all the furnishings, accessories, and paint colors for the room that you need help with 
•I will do all the research online and send you a detailed list of all the items so you can purchase them on your own. 

Custom Virtual Design Board $250 
•Everything included in the Custom Mood Board, but delivered to you virtually as if your room was already done with views from 2 different angles. This is great for people who need to really SEE the entire room done. 
•I will do all the research online and send you a detailed list of all the items so you can purchase them on your own. 

Design Feature $50 
•Do you only need a quick design boost for a smaller project? Like a feature wall or one piece of furniture. Local Raleigh and Wake Forest Folks: Are you looking for help or need a piece of furniture painted? 
•I charge around $200 per dresser (pricing is different for smaller pieces or custom paint details) plus costs for materials. 
•I charge around $50/hour for different design services like color consultations, personal shopping and decor consultations. 
•I specialize in finding that special piece via my non-retail sources such as Goodwill, Craigslist, etc. 

What do I need from you? 
•Inspirational photos, room measurements, a budget and any specific design opinions or tastes. 
•Good email communication is critical! 
•2 revisions included. 50% non-refundable PayPal payment required to start.
