I am so excited to announce parcel, our newest decorating service!!   Over the past couple of years, I've been unable to keep up with servicing both traditional clients and online clients, so I've had to put the whole online decorating thing on the shelf for a while.  We've had lots of requests to bring it back though, and we've been working really hard to try to rework our company so that we could, and  it's finally time!!

SO, we came up with parcel.  It's basically this:  design delivered to your door in a pretty little parcel.  It's everything you need to put the room of your dreams together, the way we do it. 


{a recent project}


 Instead of meeting traditionally, we communicate via emails and questionnaires and our clients receive a chic little parcel of essential step-by-step design plans in the mail that they can implement on their own.  We're starting parcel projects in just a few weeks and are taking on new clients right now for the Fall so if you know of anyone who might be interested, please let them know that they can sign up now!  If you'd like to sign up yourself, go to the contact section of our website (www.thepurestyle.com, which is switching over to laurenliess.com next week!)  and submit a project inquiry, mentioning that you're interested in parcel. I'd love to have you as a client!! 

Also, for any other decorators out there who've been considering offering online services, I can say that I really loved doing it in the past, and that creatively, it's very similar to taking on traditional clients, but that's it's so different (of course never actually seeing the client or home in person) in that it's really more time spent designing vs. communicating and meeting and managing projects.  I loved doing it- which is why I've brought it back- but for me personally, I also needed the flesh and blood relationship-building side that traditional  projects offer.   I'm hoping this will be the best of both worlds!!  I'll keep you posted!


ps- Would love to know what you all think of it!!  



If you'd like help creating a home you absolutely love, contact me about our design services.  If you're interested in becoming a parcel client, please mention that in your inquiry.  Thanks so much!

Love the name and so you! While I do not have an official program I have done a couple of email projects and enjoyed them very much. One was for a repeat client so I knew her already as I had done her local home and another was someone I met at a party but lived out of the area so did not know her particularly well. It does take a specific type of designer who can visualize but both clients were pleased with the outcome. My only advice is to make sure it is clear how much time is included in your fee as there could potentially be a lot of back and forth questions and answers that will eat up your time and your fee. Looking forward to following your progress.

I really love this idea. And I agree that some befores and afters would be great. I'm curious about cost as well. Can't wait to learn more about this.

Vel Criste said...

Perfect! I actually recommended you to a friend who's planning to decorate her house soon. Hope this is what she's lookin' for.:-)

Lauren- What a great logo for parcel - love the fonts you chose - very fresh, fun and creative.

The text you wrote for parcel :"design delivered to your door in a pretty little parcel. It's everything you need to put the room of your dreams together, the way we do it. " - so nice! It's so enticing and says to clients this new service is something fun and manageable to do!

So great to see your business grow - and I can't wait to see the new web page!
