Our affordable design services—in-person or remote—
get personal in the best way possible.

 

The world is full of pretty spaces. But what transforms a house into a home are thoughtful details that reflect your personality and passions. Drawing on a decade of experience working in lifestyle magazines and brands, we bring great taste, industry knowledge, and attention to detail to the design process.

In just a few short weeks, we'll dream up a new vision for your space. Our relationship will be fully collaborative—and we promise it'll be fun! Here's a brief explanation of how it'll all go down:

Step 1: Let's get to know each other

We’ve learned to always start with questions—the right questions. Usually simple. Never intimidating.
What room(s) do you want to makeover? What's your budget (whether it's $2,000 or $20,000, our attention to detail remains the same)?

We'll ask you for an initial deposit, photos and measurements of the space, and send you a style quiz so we can hone in on what you're into and what you're not.

Step 2: We'll get to work

What sets us apart is our attention to personal details. Using your answers from our style quiz, we'll incorporate pieces that tell your story and meet your needs. We'll create a mood board that includes color palette and larger pieces that set the tone for the room, and we'll send it your way so you can weigh in on the creative direction and provide feedback.

Step 3: You get the goods

We'll send you a final room design, a prioritized shopping list of links, as well as 3-D layout that shows you exactly where to put each piece in the room. At this point, it's totally up to you what and when you start buying things. You can click through our list of links to purchase each piece or use it more as inspiration to find pieces on your own.


The Nitty Gritty

Q: How do I know that Spruce is right for me?
A: Our services appeal to a wide range of people. You might fit into one or more of the following categories:

*You've been meaning to decorate [fill-in-the-blank space] for years.
*You know what you like when you see it, but don't know how to get there.
*You feel overwhelmed choosing colors, patterns, furniture, and accessories.
*You want to avoid turning your space into a showroom for your favorite store.
*You want a budget-friendly, new look that doesn't look budget-friendly.

Q: So how much does this cost anyway?
A: We charge $500 per room, and require a 50% deposit at the start of our agreement and 50% after completion. We won’t surprise you with any additional fees along the way. For requests that extend beyond the 30-day window, we offer an hourly rate.

Q: Is there a minimum budget?
A: Nope. We’ll stick to the number you give us, as long as there are affordable, decently-made sources we can provide. 

Q: How long does this process take?
A: We aim to wrap up remote projects within 30 days of our first conversation. That means we rely on you to respond within a few days to keep the process moving. We’ll promise to do the same.

­Q: Will you come to my house and set everything up?
A: If you live near us in North Carolina, we can start the process with an in-person consultation. We’ll take a look at existing pieces you plan to keep and play with potential furniture configurations. We’re happy to come back and help you set up any pieces you order if you’re willing to pay additional hourly charges.

Q: Can you incorporate pieces I want to keep in your design?
A: Yes, of course. We're big believers in mixing new and old—which includes cherished pieces from your past.

Q: I love vintage pieces. Can you incorporate those too?
A: We do too! And yes, we’re happy to search for vintage pieces on various resale websites. If you're local, we can scout shops in the area for fun finds.
