Bright & Colorful Living Room E-Design

Recently, I completed this warm and colorful E-Design Package for a client.
As with all my E-Design Packages, the process begins with the client filling out an online questionnaire and emailing pictures and measurements of their space.
If you are interested in more detail on how this process works, check out this blog post and visit my website.

My client already had her major pieces of furniture in her living room. She just needed accessories, art, window treatments and accent tables to complete the space. She also needed help selecting paint colors.  Below are all the 'mood boards' that I emailed my client.


This mood board basically shows all the art, accent pieces, pillows, lighting, rug, and drapery panels that I suggested for her living room.

Below shows what I suggested for her kitchen.  Her kitchen was mostly cabinetry so not a lot was needed.  I suggested a rug, a pretty colorful vase with flowers for the island, and some small art pieces to go above the back splash and under the cabinetry.


Her entry is very small with little space for decor. However, I did want to suggest a few things to make a statement as you enter her apartment. I suggested a bright patterned rug and large artwork to give this area some personality.  I also suggested painting the main wall a beautiful blue color.


Below, spells out for my client where to place the suggested art.


This shows how I would arrange the pillows on her sofa and chair that she already owns.  (Hey, pillows are important, right?!!!)  I also specified how many and what size to order.


This shows how I would arrange the area/wall where her t.v. is.  My client had a dark media unit, and I suggested a painted jade media unit and painting the wall an accent color to give this area some interest.  She had a floor lamp next to the media unit, and I suggested two pretty antique brass wall lamps to go on each side of the t.v. that I think make a much prettier and sophisticated presentation. 

This shows my client two different ways she could accessorize her new cocktail table.

The E-Design package also included a price/source list and additional notes to help my client successfully complete the space. 

Once my client received her E-Design package, she emailed me back saying this:

"MELISSA!!  I am so excited and so totally in LOVE with the design!  I want to start shopping!  Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  I have a few more hours of work ahead of me but cannot wait to deep dive into everything this evening.  How wonderful!  Thank you!"

For the Love of Pillows!

Can an interior designer get enough of beautiful pillows?  I don't think so!

Pillows are like jewelry for a room.  They add so much character, charm, interest to a space.

  I am working on a new E-Design project and decided to select the pillows first and then begin piecing together the room from there.  I wanted to get my clients input on what she liked best so I put these 3 different pillow combinations together for her to pick from:


















My client said she liked all three options, but decided to go with option #1!  Time to start selecting other items for the space!

Recently Completed E-Design Project

 Hi there!  I just wanted to share a recent E-Design project I completed.  

E-Design is great for clients who would like my help with designing their home that do not live in my area.  All communication is done via the internet (and phone calls if needed).  The process begins with the prospective client filling out an online questionnaire.  Once reviewed, I email back a quote to complete their E-Design Package.  If  accepted by the client, I then email any additional questions I may have, ask for measurements or additional photos. I also email a contract for the client to sign and email back. To learn more click here.

Below shows the E-Design Package my client received through email.



Every E-Design Project I deliver comes with a 'Source List' of where to purchase everything.  It includes quantity, pricing, and purchasing specific notes.  I miniaturized this page, because the only person who gets to know the direct sources for the room design is my client.  This is what they paid me for:)


Helpful notes and tips are also included, to help my client along the way!

Below is the  houzz review my client wrote about her experience working with Melissa Boyer Interiors.

Project Peek: Bare Wax Studio & Salon

I have been working on decorating a new wax and salon studio here in town.  We almost have everything completed.  The only space that I have quickly snapped a picture of is the bathroom..weird, I know!  But, since I have a few before and after snapshots I thought I would share them.

To give you a little background, the owner had just had the space painted brown, it was light baby blue before.  I just picked out the accessories and finishing touches.

Here is the BEFORE shot:

And here are a few AFTER shots: 
(See--- definitely not professional photography!  That is something yet to happen!)


I decided that the space underneath the sink needed to be covered.  This created a much needed storage space, and gave the bathroom a softer, finished look.  My client loved the blue and brown leopard print fabric so that is what we went with.  It was perfect with the wall color.

The mirror was purchased from Home Decorators and the other metal wall art was purchased from Overstock.  The canvas art (that you can barely see a reflection of) was also purchased from Overstock.  All the accessories were purchased locally at TJ Maxx and Ashley Furniture.


Once I get this project professionally photographed I will be showing you more:)

Here are a few of the design boards that I put together for the salon.  My client had already purchased the cute chairs (2 of each) shown below.  That pretty much set the color scheme for the salon - terra cotta/oranges and teal/shades of green-blues.
