instant/space is the invention of Los Angeles decorator Betsy Burnham of Burnham Design. With instant/space, Burnham offers clients do-it-yourself custom-designed spaces for a reasonable fee.
Burnham created instant/space for clients who don’t need the full services of an interior designer. Those who are simply looking for design help and a starting off point to decorate their homes themselves. Great for someone only needing to decorate a few rooms, or someone who lives outside of Los Angeles but wants Burnham’s design assistance, or just someone looking for a master design and decor plan for a room or their entire house.
Here’s how instant/space works. Clients send Burnham and team some pictures of their room, measurements and some images decor images they like. Four to six weeks after clients sends their information to instant/space, they received a personalized design box.
The design box includes:
- Personalized design concept board (using color images, magazine tears, sketches, etc.)
- Detailed schematic furniture plan, drawn to scale.
- Sample/swatch ring of fabric, wallpaper, paint, flooring, tile, and hardware
- Shopping list of resources – both local and on-line – for all design elements
- Step-by-step outline of how to pull all the elements of the presentation together
