Today is the day of the big launch for Love Ding! I'm so excited to finally share what I've been working so hard on behind the scenes for the past couple months.

As a part of my interior styling + home staging services, I will now also be offering “Spruce Kits” — an customizable online interior styling (or e-design) service where I help you create a cohesive and well-designed space, anywhere from a cozy reading nook to several rooms. After three years of focusing on retail, where I discovered what goods people were drawn to most, I wanted to expand my business so that I could bring all of these elements together in a way that helps others make their houses feel more like home. This is the heart of my interior design services, and the Spruce Kit.

When designing for my clients, I like to explore the possibility of using what you already have, adding a few new pieces and rearranging the space to bring a fresh perspective to the space. A home should be relaxing, rejuvenating, and safe. So, I knew I wanted to provide a service that would help people enhance their experiences in their homes without having to break the bank with a complete overhaul. And because this service is performed completely online, no matter where you are in the world you can bring Love Ding's design sensibilities to your home!

Check out the most recent spruce I did, below. This particular sitting room started with only a tufted couch and a gorgeous set of vintage marble end tables. And after a quick spruce, it was transformed into the perfect space for entertaining and relaxing.

Good question! With most professional interior designers, you will be paying upward of $3,000 for an in-home design consultation (this is not including the price of new furniture and decor). It was my goal to develop a platform where professional design services could be made more convenient and accessible for everyone! Starting at only $300/room, the Spruce Kit is a great alternative for those looking to re-decorate rooms as their budget allows or for a new homeowner looking to lessen the hassle of decorating a new space from the ground up.

After completing the Spruce Kit Questionnaire, I will reach out to go over your design preferences and give you a simple checklist of things I will need from you, including measurements and photographs of the space as well as a list of must-have items. From there, you will have access to a shared (and secret) Pinterest board where we will collaborate on designs and refine your dream home style. Once I have a good idea of what you’re looking for, I will provide you with a mood board, floorplan and resource list (of furniture and decor you will be able to purchase from your favorite online retailers). Don’t like something? No worries! One round of revisions is also included in the price. The entire design process, from start to finish, takes about 3 weeks.

So, are you interested in sprucing up your space? Head over to the questionnaire to help give me a better idea of your needs and wants for your space, and I’ll be in touch with more details. :) Want to check out more examples of past designs? Take a peek here.


Love, Ding
