    5 Australian E-Designers Who Redo Your Home Decor Remotely

    September 02, 2021 3 min read

    The extended Covid lockdown is making all of us look critically - and possibly unhappily - at our four walls, creating an irresistible urge to change our decor, furniture and furnishings.

    You may have even considered booking an interior decorator to help you improve your home. But with many areas in lockdown with visitors to your home completely banned, you might like to book a virtual design consultation where all your contact is done via Zoom, phone calls and/or email.

    The best thing is, it doesn't matter if you're in Melbourne and they're in Perth or whatever, as it's all done remotely. 

    Amanda Lee InteriorsHere's 5 very different Australian interior decorators offering affordable e-consultation services.

    Amanda Lee Interiors
    Perth-based Amanda Lee Interiors offers 2-hour online consultations for Property Pre-sale (including changes to maximise your property's presentation for sale such as paint colours, decluttering, rearranging existing furniture and soft furnishings), Interior Styling (with an optional $150 moodboard fee per room such as this Hamptons-style moodboard) and before starting your New Build, including a step by step service to guide you in all your new build pre start selections, covering paint colours, fittings, fixtures, tiles and cabinetry. 

    Each of the 2-hour consultations cost $200.

    The Painted Hive

    Melbourne-based The Painted Hive offer three e-design options: Basic (from $250), Moderate (from $450) and Complex (from $650).

    Basic is ideal for bedrooms, simple bathrooms, basic living rooms, partial floor plans.

    Moderate is aimed at those wanting e-consultation on kitchens, open-plan spaces, basic facades, complicated rooms.

    Complex is for whole house exteriors, complicated facades, fuill floor plans and difficult architecture.

    All options include navigable 3D models, 360-degree panoramas, photo-realistic render images from overhead and floor level, written design overviews and up to 10 individual revisions of the final plan.


    Based in Melbourne, Furnishd takes you through an easy, online step-by-step process, beginning with step 1, a design survey where they uncover your style, items you're looking for, budget, and what you'll be using the space for.

    In step 2, the designer sends you a suggested layout of your home, an item list with dimensions where appropriate, budget allocation and a design aesthetic. The Planned service up to step 2 costs $849.

    You can also choose to upgrade to the Transformed service for $2,849 which includes steps 1 and 2, and introduces steps 3-5. In step 3, you receive moodboards with expertly curated pieces from Furnishd's exclusive range of carefully vetted suppliers.

    Move onto Step 4 which lets you use their personal shopping service, which will price-match anything you find at a better price, as well as give you access to exclusive Furnishd discounts.

    And in step 5, Furnishd can help with delivery and set-up.
