If you would have told me five years ago that I would be starting my own small business complete with a new website, logo and a portfolio, I never would have believed you.
I mean, I always had the thought in the back of my head that I wanted to be a boss lady, but I never could pinpoint what that would look like or how it would come to fruition. In addition to that, I’ve always been a creative person by nature. I have an art minor from Moravian, and it’s always made me happy when my creative juices are flowing. I feel inspired and alive when I am able to work on projects that bring out that side of me. So without giving too much away about my intentions (because I’d really love for you to read “My Story” on the site), that will explain it all on it’s own. As you will see, my interest and passion for interiors didn’t happen overnight.
On a side note…I’m not quitting my day job. I’m putting that out there because I’m sure I will get asked that question. This new venture will be my little baby that I’ll have on the side, to keep me inspired creatively. But most importantly, my business will give me the opportunity to share my love of design with others. It is my hope that I can help people create a warm, practical and functional space in their homes both in the Lehigh Valley and beyond.
WHAT DO I LOVE ABOUT MY NEW SITE?
First things first….let’s take a little tour of the website and I’ll show you around a bit.
I love the layout! The way the site was laid out was very important to me. During the design process, I knew I wanted something that was clean and simple, yet would allow the pictures to speak for themselves. I spent a good amount of time looking at other designers’ sites and I was always drawn to those that had good pictures and very few distractions.
Clean, black & white, and just my name. That’s it. Nothing too fancy or overdone.
EASE OF USE
Ok, I may need some help here….but from my viewpoint, the site is very easy to use. I wanted to make sure my services were very clear, concise, and all in the same place. I’m a first timer here and always eager to learn, so I’d love to hear any comments and suggestions.
Speaking of services, I love how they are broken apart into different categories. No job will be the same, and budgets will very….so prices will be given through quotes. My time and the scope of the project will all be factored into the quotes I give. As always, I will be willing to work with clients to come up with a plan that works for all of us.
This is a fun one! Through this venue, I will be able to take on clients who are not local. eDesign is a service that is fully remote. The client will send me room dimensions and photos, and through a phone or Zoom conference, we will determine the best route to go with the space. In return, I will provide a full vision board complete with fabric, furniture and accessory ideas, product source/shopping list, and design notes. I like to think of eDesign as a DIY option. The client can then take what I gave them and run with it at their own pace and at their own budget.
I’ve decided to still keep my BLOG “Miles of Glam” because that name is special to me, but the cool part is that you can access all of my posts directly from the website under the blog tab for easy reading. I will still have the www.miles-of-glam.com url as well.
Under the “Contact” tab, all of my business contact information including cell and email can be found. Plus, anyone interested in setting up a consultation meeting or getting a free quote on a service, the simple form can be found there as well.
In a nutshell…this is the beginning….and I would LOVE to help you! If you, or someone you know would like to make your home the best it could be, give me a call! Like I said, I work with all abilities and budgets and no job is too small. I truly believe that homes are our safe havens. They should reflect the people who live in them, as well as their personalities and lifestyles. Homes should be a place that you WANT to come home to everyday. You all deserve that…and more!
WHAT’S THE WEBSITE AGAIN?
