OC Designer Source Teams Up With Homemade

OC Designer Source is pleased to announce that we are teaming up with Homemade Design Corporation (HMD), America’s leading online interior design firm!

Homemade provides thousands of clients all across America with affordable fixed fee per room interior design consultation as well as access to exclusive interior designer discounts from popular retailers and trade sources. Clients from all over the country can hire an interior designer best friend (for an affordable fixed fee per room) and receive design advice in a convenient way that suits their hectic schedule and project -- including online email support and telephone appointments during normal business hours.  There is no hourly limit with HMD’s fixed fee per room services and the client can contact their designer for help pulling the room together with no hourly limits until they say their project is complete.

The HMD Story:

While working as a professional interior designer creating gorgeous interiors for millionaires and billionaires, Amanda Zettel was spending her off hours providing a slightly different type of design advice to friends and family.

“My girlfriends didn’t need full-service design consultation and project management at $250 an hour. What they needed was a design professional to help pull it all together. I’d help define their style, share sources, send fabric samples and nudge them in the right direction. When they fell in love with something I’d save them a ton using my designer discounts from trade sources.”

Following with this line of thinking, in 2006 she created one of the world’s first online interior design websites. By the summer of 2011 this interior designer with a history of consulting millionaires and billionaires began to refuse to visit clients in their homes, leaving in-home consultation behind in order to serve a new demographic of design clientele in an exciting new way. Today the Homemade Design Team consults thousands of households all across America virtually via telephone, email and through proprietary online tools as they provide an ultra-affordable interior design experience unlike any other in our industry.

HMD Teaming Up With OCDS:

Homemade and OC Designer Source compliment each other perfectly in the marketplace. Homemade Design has many online clients seeking to remodel, decorate and beautify their homes and OCDS has a network of extremely qualified service providers including contractors, painters, electricians, craftsmen, trade partners, and of course residential interior designers, as well as a separate art division. HMD will be promoting ODCS to their clients as part of their ongoing effort to be a resource for all types of local home remodeling, renovation and decorating needs.

The partnership will enable Homemade online design clients access to professional and reliable OC Designer Source members and will also enable these members to promote their products and services for free to Homemade clients and website visitors. HMD will also enable OCDS and its members to re-sell HMD online interior design services by offering promo codes for discounted HMD online design services. HMD will also make available (free of charge) some valuable business building tools and resources to OCDS and its members including the ability to gift free HMD interior design packages to customers, prospects and strategically to generate new business opportunities in the local marketplace.

Michele Preston, Owner of OC Designer Source, speaks to why this new partnership will be extremely beneficial to both companies as well as their clients:

“[OC Designer Source and Homemade Design Corporation] are like minded.  We have intent to help Homemade get more business here in California and support their customers that may need a little more help than just the package online. We help them discover resources that may be more in our expertise level, such as the builders and design centers or real estate people we know here in California that may benefit them. Michele Wiemann and I find this to be a great fit for not only their needs, but for our needs as well. We think their packages are brilliant and beautifully orchestrated, tasteful, and always helpful to the customer. We look forward to partnering with them.”
