55 Apr19028 TurnYour Interior Design Dreams into Reality in as Little as a Day Words by Joe Rosa. Have you ever started a new design project in your home and stood there and thought ‘where do I begin, how do I bring this all together?’ After all, shopping for the right colours, textures, flooring, furniture, lighting, paint, window treatments, and accessories can be overwhelming. Have you ever wished you had someone with you to help narrow things down? Point you in a direction you may have never considered? Wendy Interiors now offers her expertise as your Design for a Day! What is a Designer for a Day – in a nutshell it’s Wendy’s undivided attention to you and all of your details. You and Wendy will start with an in-home consultation and based on that Wendy will provide you with a customized and detailed plan including design ideas, shopping resources, and colour palettes – all based on your personal needs and budget. At the end of your consultation you will have all of the inspiration and encouragement you need to complete your home makeover, but the best is yet to come. You and Wendy will meet again on your scheduled shopping day, and with your shopping list in hand, Wendy will get you out the door and into all of the right doors – for one flat fee. Let’s take a bathroom remodel as an example. You want to redo your entire bathroom – from tiles to towel racks, plumbing to painting. On your scheduled shopping day, Wendy will map out the day - visiting a tile show room, a plumbing store, a lighting showroom, and go pick out cabinets, paint, hardware and window treatments, towels, any coordinating accessories that may be needed. “One of the best things about hiring a Designer for a Day is that you have the undivided attention of one person working solely for you,” said Wendy Lepkoff, owner of Wendy Interiors. “When you utilize my services for a Designer for a Day, you are privy to my industry discounts, you don’t incur commission costs on purchases, and the most valuable piece is that you have someone who helps guide you in the right direction – saving you time, money, and frustration – all of which is priceless.” With a Designer for a Day there is no piecemealing a project. When you are out looking for accessories, you’ll have your paint colour samples with you – not at home where they usually end up when you find that perfect pillow and you just aren’t sure if it will go. From start to finish with Wendy Interiors as your Designer for a Day, your project is done fast, easy, and with no do-overs. You may not need a whole room remodelled and that’s okay. This one- on-one personalized service is just that – personalized. You may need furniture for one room, a countertop for your kitchen, window treatments for your family room, or a rug for your dining room. You may end up buying everything in one day, or just narrow some things down. But no matter what you do, you have the assistance and expertise of your Wendy at your side. “I am thrilled to offer this service to my clients,” said Lepkoff. “This is truly for the person who wants to be involved but needs a little direction. This process allows me to help my client’s taste shine through while I am able to give them advice on how to piece everything together and afford them with an abundance of resources, connections, and designer discounts.” Wendy Interiors also a full-service interior design firm specializing in kitchens, bathrooms, and open concept renovations, as well as home offices, media rooms, green concepts, and therapy rooms for children with autism.
