Moving into our current home 3 years ago in the middle of renos and just days away from bringing our fourth babe into the world meant home decor was neglected and design took a back seat to simply keeping up with the demands of large family life. A common misconception people make about me by mere fact I’m a Mama of a big crew is that I must be insanely organized. Not exactly. I mean we absolutely have systems in place, but organizing my home head to toe is not my calling. But, adding more flow and function to our home is a BIG priority this year, so identifying pain points around the house and reworking them to fit our fast-paced lifestyle is definitely worthwhile.
Except, time to figure out what works well in our space, spending hours sourcing and shopping for products to design it just isn’t in the cards. I’ve got House & Home mag taste with zero time, and a way lower budget to make it happen…well until we discovered White Dahlia Design, that is!
The first areas of priority are our front entryway and adjacent office space. While we do have a mudroom off to the side of the home, these spaces are still high traffic, hectic areas lacking elements conducive to managing all the things (like no closet beside the front door!). We call our office a make-shift walk-in closet as it’s where we store extra household goods, and usually where all the sports bags and outdoor gear end up during the busy hockey season and Winter months.
We sent the White Dahlia design team current photos of each space (missing were all the shoes/hats that end up in a jumbled pile;)), room measurements, some style inspo images from Pinterest and our incredible Designer, Gloria, began working her design magic! Based on our current budget we’ll be tackling the front entryway first, and slowly transforming the office space over the next 6 months – a year.
Here are the design renderings they put together in just 5 days!
We need functional storage and organization solutions throughout our home and White Dahlia was the perfect partner to help us do it. I know fellow busy families will think so too…here’s why:
- With their stress-free package, you have access to an interior designer who will help you create your dream space in just 4 easy steps. After sending your measurements, room images and design inspo photos to a convenient online portal, you’ll get a phone consult and receive a custom 3-D design rendering in 5 days with a layout and decor suggestions. Pretty amazing, huh?!
- The stress-free package removes the need to spend hours sourcing furniture and decor – all suggestions are provided via an electronic, shoppable list with items from vendors that suit your aesthetic and fit within your budget! Check out the shoppable lists our Designer put together for our OFFICE and FRONT ENTRYWAY
- Everything is done online via a design hub, making the process organized and efficient with everything you need in one virtual location.
- ZERO pressure to purchase from the shoppable list, although if you do, White Dahlia will handle the ordering and any exchange/return needs that may arise, removing hassles from the after-sales process and hidden design fees that could surmount from traditional interior decorator services. They also have a LIGHT package for all you DIYers who love the shopping process but just need a bit of design guidance or the VIP package where their team can come assemble your pieces and set up the entire space for you!
Here’s our design mood board with décor/furniture ideas carefully selected by our Designer based on our budget and aesthetic preferences:
Because we know so many families can benefit from stress-free, simplified e-design services, White Dahlia has generously offered our readers $50 off the Stress-Free Package (a value of $445 for $395)! Simply use code HOUSE OF KERR when buying your package online.
