Want help designing your space?

There’s a consultant for that.

As LA Realtors, we often see clients hesitate when it comes to interior design. Many folks assume that hiring an interior designer is a luxury kept exclusively by those who are very wealthy. But as we spend more and more time in our homes, and see the value of a well designed space for our needs, we are here to cut through this myth and talk about the value design consultants can make for any size family and home. From paint consultants to plant experts who can warm your space with greenery, there are a multitude of ways we can customize our spaces to meet our practical and visual needs. Learn more about the different ways you can augment your home to meet your family’s changing needs here.

Specialized interior consultants have titles like Houseplant Whisperer, Feng Shui Consultant, Aroma Therapist, and more.  These experts will come into your home to give you a detailed analysis of what your space needs. They will even go shopping with you to make sure you get the right items.

Houseplant Whisperer

Let’s say you like the idea of having plants, but you don’t really want to bother with picking them out, finding the right size pots, knowing what soil you need, and all that stuff. Kind of like how you like the idea of eating dinner, but don’t want to cook. Well, consider Léon & George L.A.’s Postmates for plants. You select your pre-potted plant off their site, they deliver it direct to your home, and they even plant a tree in the forest in your honor.


Feng Shui Consultant

You may be curious about feng shui, the ancient Chinese practice of using design to enhance health and prosperity. Or maybe you just feel things in your apartment, and perhaps in your life, are out of whack. Certified feng shui practitioners like Laura Cerrano may be able to help. She makes recommendations for a space, taking into consideration a customer’s health, relationships and goals. She can recommend the most propitious place for a home office — or a litter box.


Aroma Therapy

For years hotels and spas have commissioned signature scents. Now homeowners can do the same. These fragrances go beyond simply smelling good, certain natural scents can boost your mood and help you work and sleep better. Rather than an overall fragrance that blankets the whole house or apartment, experts recommend localized scents, geared to and supporting what takes place in various rooms. Switching scents, just like dimming or brightening lights, can help change the mood when rooms must do double-duty, as is often the case these days. Our friend Danielle DeJoie is an LA based Flower Essence Practitioner and Holistic Health Coach who can help you incorporate aroma therapy in your home.


Decluttering Specialist

Marie Kondo started a home organization revolution, but she isn’t the only one in this space. Our friends at DoorSquad provide expert decluttering services and manage the mayhem of moving end to end, giving you a no-stress change of address. Skillful professional organizers will help you sort through your stuff and decide what to donate, pack, or haul away. This service sets you up for a seamless unpacking or Spring cleaning experience.


Perhaps your Malibu Beach home needs to incorporate more natural elements.

Or maybe your Downtown Loft needs to feel less industrial.

Maybe your new build in Culver City needs warmth.

Or maybe you want your WeHo backyard look like a jungle.

Whatever your home needs, you can find a highly specialized consultant to give you advice on your space.
