Lei’s virtual e+design service offers a unique and dynamic approach to interior design. The service provides an accelerated and affordable approach for you, the design savvy client. Her virtual design packages are for those clients who don’t need or want to spend money and time on full service interior design. Here is a little bit more about her approach to design, and her virtual service offering:
How would you describe your design style?
My designs are always slightly eclectic, developing and adapting to the client’s needs. My passion remains firmly fixed on creating a space that tells a story, a reflection of who or what the space is to be used for.
Mid-century modern with a little side order of quirky, and a Scandinavian twist.
What big trends do you see influencing your style choices this year?
Really thinking about the global impact, trying to reuse pieces where ever possible in sourcing reclaimed vintage pieces and reworking, rather than always buying new.
On a softer note, darker shades of green will become the new must have interior colour…although indigo and midnight blues remain my go to colour.
Why have you created the virtual e-design packages?
Wherever you are in the world, I can help you makeover your space! This service offers flexibility to clients who don’t want the time and expense of having a team of people in their space, but rather to have the styling guidance with more of a DIY approach.
The packages provide me with the opportunity to extend my existing international client base, and extend my offering of how clients interact with me.
Who can buy the packages?
Anyone needing design advice.
Do you need to visit my home to design my space?
No, that’s the beauty of these packages. They allow for an easy to follow approach to redesigning a space, created in a virtual capacity.
Who would benefit most from your e-design packages?
International clients or non–Capetonians who like my approach to design but can’t get me on site.
Anyone who wants to makeover a space they love but doesn’t necessarily need or want the space project managed.
How do clients communicate with you during the creative & decision making process?
Connect with me via email, skype, whatsapp, call me or even send a courier pigeon! Whatever works for you, we will make it happen together.
Is it possible to gift someone an e+design package?
Explain the differences between the three packages you offer.
A quick and easy to follow guide, perfect for someone who is looking to breathe new life into a tired space. A quick coat of paint, a splash of colour & texture, and some new accessories can make all the difference.
The perfect package for someone who wants to take their existing space to new levels, or is moving into a new space and wants direction on how to make it their own. This package is perfect for someone who already has quite an established base, and needs advice on what to add, how to style and where to place it. Often all the pieces of the puzzle are there it’s just about finding that silver thread to tie them all together.
Everything but the kitchen sink (although, it may very full well include options for this too)! This is the closest you can get to full design overhaul without the project management. The perfect package for someone who is moving into a new space and needs a complete bird’s eye view approach to the design, budget, and process.
