Professional Interior Design Advice Goes Virtual

| July 6, 2020 | 0 Comments

If you’re going stir-crazy observing all the flaws in your home or business during the pandemic, the American Society of Interior Designers’ (ASID) San Diego Chapter has a solution.  During the month of July members of the prestigious organization will conduct virtual appointments to discuss design dilemmas and offer advice during ASID’s first-ever Summer Fresh Up event.  The affordable fee of $85 per hour (minimum one hour/maximum two hours) is a donation to the ASID chapter; the designer volunteers his/her time.

“Sheltering at home has made people eager to refresh, renew and redesign their surroundings,” said ASID Chapter President Bertha Hernandez. “This is an excellent way to brainstorm with a professional and kickstart your design projects.  Appointments can be made virtually via various video conference platforms, such as Zoom, Skype, Facetime, or arrangements can be made for an in-person appointment with social distancing,” she said.

“This is an extraordinary opportunity for homeowners to get a taste of working with an interior designer, with no commitment and a small investment,” said Hernandez.

“No matter what your project – commercial, residential, hospitality, healthy home, universal design, green design, aging-in-place, color scheme selection, kitchen/bath remodeling, outdoor rooms, multigenerational living, feng shui, or downsizing – ASID can provide an expert that can give you stylish and sensible advice that is often money-saving, too,” she added.

The list of participating interior designers and their companies is available at under “ASID Summer Fresh Up.”  ASID SUMMER FRESH UP LINK information is also available by emailing

Founded in 1975, the American Society of Interior Designers is the oldest, largest and leading professional organization for interior designers.
