Decorilla’s community of decorators are invited to submit customized proposals based on the project requirements. You then choose the decorator that best matches your needs and work with them online to get the perfect space. Each package includes 3D computerized renderings, floor plan with furniture placement, a shopping list with links, paint color palettes, an implementation guide, and juicy tips.
To maximize value, decorators use their skills and knowledge to get the best deals. Decorilla works with thousands of popular brands and offers clients exclusive discounts from major retailers such as Wayfair, CB2, Dwell Studios, Crate&Barrel, Viesso, Zatista Art, and other key players. With these strategic relationships in place, Decorilla can pay for itself three or four times over.
Joshua Van Aalst, Head of Mobile Banking at Morgan Stanley & Decorilla Co-founder, asserts, “Online interior design can offer variety, inspiration, convenience, and competitive pricing in ways that traditional interior design cannot.
