The Interior Design Industry…Vendors and Interior Designers

I don’t understand why the Interior Design industry and all of its related vendors do not work together as one collaborative unit. I think about this a lot especially when I reflect on other industries. It seems like our industry does nothing to help out one another or promote using one another services. It is very common for a customer to shop at a retail furniture store and for that store to offer “Interior Design” services as a free service they have. This is not fare for those of us who are educated in this field and have the ability to provide a real design service. A customer would never go to a florist for their wedding and have them offer cake making and wedding planning as well, right? So why is it that our industry, which depends so much on us generating business for our vendors, disrespect us in this way? There seems to be a very select few who give respect to designers and allow us to do the designing. I think this is something that needs to take more shape in our industry. For example, why does a contractor take on the role as designer? I would never expect a chef to also take on the role of head waiter!!

A.S.D. INTERIORS Launches – Ghost Planner!!

Have you ever wanted to enlist the help of a professional interior designer but thought, “I don’t have the money to afford that” or “I don’t need to hire someone, I know what I want”? Well A.S.D. Interior has created a new program specifically designed for you!!

It is called Ghost Planner and it is a completely internet based program to give you a complete design for your space with the aid of a professional designer, without ever leaving your home!!

Why would we create this program? We really want to reach out to the clients who believe they either can’t afford it or who feel like they don’t need the help (or are not ready to admit they do!) It is not unrealistic these days to complete a total room design by making purchases online and communicating with a designer through email only! We have been doing it for a long time now and we are here to make the planning, shopping, furniture buying, and staging easy for you.

How does it work? We offer a flat fee for the entire package based on the Sq. Ft. of the room you want to design. We have the client fill out a 1 page questionnaire and in return you get a detailed floor plan, custom color selection, complete shopping list with furniture, accessories, lighting, and artwork, and a detailed guide of how to execute the design. It’s as easy as that.

So what do you need to do? Just email us and we will fill you in with all the details 🙂

The team at A.S.D. Interiors has been thinking of selling home decor products that are hand selected by us! We see so many beautiful and unique items everyday and we want to share our finds with everyone…stuff that is affordable and really has some designer style! But before we move to quickly, we want to get some feedback….would you purchase products because they have been selected by a design company you know? We would love to get some opinions…
