Designing a collected home on your own can be overwhelming and time-consuming. This is where we can help! Our projects begin with an initial consultation (via phone or in-person, if local to Chicago) and questionnaire. We will provide a cost estimate for our services based on the scope of work involved. If you choose to move forward, we will do all the shopping for you, and you decide what you want to invest in on your timeline. It's easy, fun, personalized to your style and budget.
We provide affordable, accessible interior design services, with you, our everyday mamas, in mind.
spaces we can help with:
virtual design + In-home Design Services
interior design that serves your family
When our homes are designed in a way that is meaningful, beautiful, and functional, we are more at peace. We want to help you create that physical space which reflects the love you have for your family, with the beauty, efficiency, organization and functionality that you want to experience in your home.
Want us to virtually design a room in your home, front to finish? Virtual design is for those who need help with an overall vision and sourcing, but can execute the project themselves.
To get started: Please inquire through our contact form to check availability —we will send an invoice for the project via Paypal to begin your design.
Hourly rate options are available for smaller projects (such as help sourcing just a few items rather than a full-room).
We will put together a selection of pieces that reflect your unique style - creating a curated, layered look within your budget, to purchase on your own timeline. Whether you have a half-completed room that needs to be tied together, or a blank slate, we will design a beautiful space that you will love to do life in.
The process usually takes between 2-4 weeks and includes online questionnaires, email correspondence, and two rounds of design board revisions. Your design will include furniture, fixtures, textiles, and décor.
With our in-home services, we'll guide you step-by-step through the entire design process to transform the rooms in your house into beautiful, functional spaces.
Our in-home services will provide you a vision and shopping list of items, provide fabric and finishes samples and can help with furniture and decor arrangement.
This process consists of:
Initial 1-hr consultation: In-person ($120)
Create floor and space plans
Present design concepts with mood boards
2 Design revisions & refinements
The design includes:
Art curating & consulting
Area rug selection
Paint colors and/or wallpaper selection
Window treatment selection

Choosing a paint color can be HARD.
There are so many factors that go into a color that works — the undertones, the lighting, the color palette in the rest of your room, not to mention your preferences and your taste.
This process consists of:
An email consultation with one of our design consultants.
We’ll discuss your preferences, possible color palettes, local availability, and desired functionality for the room, and then our paint consultant will provide up to 3 suggestions for the color you are looking for and provide an analysis of the undertones and common pairings of the color and ideas for other tones that will compliment that color.

The amazing team at EM helped me in what has been an ongoing issue, giving me great and flexible ideas to work with to turn my living room into a welcoming space for my family, working with my style and budget. They offer great options to help you modify spaces to what you desire, always taking in consideration your style. I couldn’t be happier to reach out to them, and look forward to contacting them again soon.

I highly recommend this service especially if you feel 'stuck'! We have an older home with heavily textured walls that makes painting super frustrating, so with a little one on the way, the last thing I wanted to do was paint again! EM helped create a unique idea that worked with the current wall colors but gave the room a fresh feel! They provided a complete look for the room that was well within my budget that totally exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend using this service for any design needs you may have!

I’m so happy I came across this service. I had been wanting to decorate our Master bedroom but had absolutely no idea where to start. The furniture was from my husband’s bachelor days and needless to say, it was time for a serious change. The EM team was able to help me come up with a vision that I absolutely LOVE! It’s almost as if they read my mind. They came up with multiple options and suggestions for the space, provided a detailed shopping list, and were just all around great to work with. I cannot recommend this service enough, especially if you’re like me and are clueless about design.

No. In order to keep an affordable pricing structure for our services, EM does not do any purchasing for you. Interior designer discounts with most major retailers range from 10-25% off (regular priced items only). This level of discount is available to the public by signing up for emails, or by waiting for a sale.
Our goal is to provide services that are accessible to the everyday mom and we work hard to keep our product recommendations and service pricing accessible to fit a variety of budgets. In order to do that, we source many items from popular mid-tier retailers such as Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, West Elm, etc. as well as pieces from budget retailers such as World Market, Target, and Wayfair.
At this time, we are not able to take on larger, full-scale remodeling projects. Our focus is primarily on interior decorating services including product sourcing, furniture arrangements, and styling. However, if you have a kitchen remodel where you'd like help choosing fixtures, countertops, backsplash, etc. we can assist you with that through our hourly rate option!
