“She’s my best friend, but I just don’t know what to get her!” “My mom just moved into a new place and I don’t know what she needs!” “My brother and his wife just bought a new home and I can’t decide what to buy them for Christmas!” Sound familiar? It seems that every year someone tops the “I just don’t know what to get them” list.
YDH Gift Certificate
We have a suggestion…..give a gift certificate to Your Decorating Hotline. For the friend or family member that needs (or wants) a little decorating help, we offer online home decorating consultations at several price points. These decorating packages include things like help choosing a color, figuring out a furniture arrangement or providing a shopping list. Doesn’t that sound perfect for someone wanting some help with decorating their home (even if it’s you)?
Stuck on Color?
For about the price of a can of paint, we’ll work with you to choose the best colors for your space. Wall color, accent color, furnishings colors and how to pull them all together….we’re here to help.
Furniture Giving You Fits?
Do you have too many windows? A small space? A too-big space? Hand-me-down furniture that you don’t know how to incorporate into your room? We’ll help with your space planning using the furnishings you already own and want to keep. And, we’ll make suggestions on how to improve the function and beauty of your room with a few judicious purchases – at your convenience and budget constraints, of course.
In Need of Inspiration?
We’ll wrap all this advice and ideas into an inspiration board that will pull it all together. The ‘board’ will show how to achieve a cohesive look and give you a working plan to follow. This is all accompanied by a complete analysis and explanation of each of our suggestions. Resources for each item on the board are included. And, for a few extra dollars, you can even talk to us directly and get clarification on sticky problems!
You can learn more about the packages and pricing we offer by reading our information page here.
The other way we can help is by giving you links to some great online shopping resources. Another idea for the home decorator on your list is a beautifully illustrated and informative book. Check out The Bookshelf tab on the top of the page for some recommendations (books I own and love).
If you click on the Shopping Savings tab, you’ll find links to excellent and well known stores like Amazon, Lamps Plus, Cost Plus World Market, Lillian Vernon and The Great Indoors. You might also find a few new ones like Candelabras, Natural Home Rug as well as Benches or Nutcrackers. I love that our affiliate selection (we make a small commission if you purchase after clicking through our link) offers such a range of choices and prices – there’s something for everyone on your list. AND, most of the sites are offering great sales, usually offer free shipping and the ease of shopping from home. What could be easier?
Enjoy the Holidays
We want you to enjoy this holiday season. We want it to be stress-free, comfortable, convenient, but also inspired, fun and creative. If you’re stuck for gift ideas, we hope you’ll consider shopping through YDH to find your solutions.
