Before and After Interior Design

100


100 per hour - Virtual OK

Show me you 'before' room and tell me what you are trying to achieve and I can help you make it look full of heart and soul. My practice is based on my ability to feel and see through the eyes of my clients: to listen, communicate and explore the details of their needs and lifestyle prior to their individual style emerging along with the perfect custom living space.

"Award Winning designer Maria DeGange has been practicing interior design since 2001, though her experience spans over 25 years in the textile and design industry starting back in her native Greece. She is CQRID certified, and professional member of the Interior Design Society.
Her style, which is strongly influenced by her travels around the world, is creative, artistic, full of color and consistently emphasizes harmony and balance. Her projects show her artistry in combining an eclectic mix of contemporary, classic and the use of multi-dimensional textural elements of design.

Maria is a very skilled and talented professional specializing in high end furniture sales and design. I am a mom of 5 children who knows that my youn...g ones will not appreciate my investment. We were not able to make deal with my budget but I have no doubt that she is fully capable and skilled in her craft.show more

We both had a lot going on at the time of this exchange, so it ultimately ended up not being particularly satisfactory for me. From what I understand..., Maria had some family visiting. It appeared that she did not really get to my project until the very last night. She was not very communicative about what the interior design process would look like or what she needed from me. I hope this feedback will help her improve in the future.show more

Maria contacted me for help with her website after two other people had worked on it. The request was for some help here and there, a few touch ups. W...hat I found when I went in was a set of plugins a theme and a page builder adding a lot of scripts. I believe this was done for Maria, and she was not really aware of this. After some time understanding the site, I was able to make some headway, but not much. What I ended up suggesting is that the programmer gets in there first, and lays the solid foundation, then other people can get in there and add a few plugins here and there, ideally, programmer approved. This is what my integrated bundle is for. I am very sorry I could not help her out more, but what happens is that a "snake's nest" is built that has to be understood by someone making the fixes. Even if they seem minor, they can be caused by a lot of convoluted code. The solution I have been able to develop in the meantime starts with < 200 kB of code (vs 20 MB + for WordPress, plus themes and plugins) and it allows the site owner to begin writing content using a Word Processor, something many are familiar with. I do not have as of now a "1 button" fix for a convoluted site, no matter how good it looks on the surface. It is possible to take a site built with a page builder and and complex plugins and fix it, but it requires an understanding of this going in. I did not want to suggest this right away, as I simply did not understand the problem then. My recommendation for new sites is to do "due diligence" on them, and ask careful "business questions" about WordPress, if a business is going to be based on it. There are alternatives. Concrete5 is one, but it takes a commitment and a programmer experienced with it to make it happen. I am sorry I could not do more, but we tried. All the best, Maria, and I hope it works out for you.
