I love this new concept from fellow blogger, stylist and decorator Briar Stanley of Sunday Collector.
“When visiting a house — be it the home of a client, family member or friend, I’m frequently asked to have a quick look at a certain room and give some advice. So often, the room is halfway there — it may need some furniture rearranging, a piece of art positioned and a new rug. I find the home owner often loves all their pieces, but doesn’t quite know how to combine everything to make the room ‘work’. I thrive on giving this sort of advice, which is why I’ve put together a package for the Sydney metro area that I’m pretty excited about,” she says.
For $300, Briar is offering two-hour in-house consultations (Sydney only) where you can talk to her about everything from wall colours, to sofa positioning. “If it’s something like a bookshelf you need styled, I could do that too. I can primarily ‘work with what you’ve got’ but also recommend any additions that I think will improve the space.” Afterwards, she’ll email you a summary of her advice, including online links to any items she recommends. “One week of email conversations can follow this email, all included in the one-off fee.”
I think this a great, affordable way to get just enough decor and styling advice to put the finishing touches to your home. I might even try it myself…
