Bailey occasionally tells me that she received an email or comment asking about me. Nothing too cray, but more like “there is an awful lot of pink in your home, how did you make Pete okay with that.” The answer (for those that have asked): Bailey has skillz, and if it looks good, I embrace it.
Recently, Bailey fielded a question about what I do for work, and while I am a lawyer, I have primarily been interested in finance. But when Bailey complained about online resources for interior design, my mind’s wheels started spinning. Why isn’t there one place to go for design inspiration, design help, and, most importantly, interior design shopping?
So with some help from a few individuals who are more technologically inclined, Bailey, and my friend Alaina of TheEverygirl.com, I decided to create that place.
So Peppermintbliss readers, meet decorBase, your one stop shop for home design.
We will be teaming up with your favorite home goods stores so you can peruse and shop home decor in one functional, online location.
And those boards that Bailey puts together for her e-clients? Our technology enables you to create them for yourself.
Users will also have the ability to hire decorators who choose to list their services on our site, and you can browse decorators by location, price point, and aesthetic. And if you’re a designer, you can list your portfolio to reach a whole new audience.
I know it can be frustrating to find the right decor pieces online, and I truly believe decorBase will make the process that much easier. So stop on over and register so you’ll be the first to know when we officially launch. You can also follow us on Twitter or Facebook. Annnd please feel free to leave your feedback as I’d love to know what frustrates y’all about online shopping and other online decor tools/resources, and how we could make your experience better.
Nice to meet y’all! And thanks for having me, Bails.
