Hopeful and Optimistic


Just as flowers come forth from the earth, grow, and unfurl in the bright sunshine of spring, the news of falling case numbers, increased vaccines, and more has us hopeful and optimistic. Yes, we are indeed hopeful and optimistic about the end of the pandemic later this year and we are looking forward to that great day Unfortunately, there is still some time before that where we must keep up our vigilance and due diligence to help slow the spread of the virus and end the pandemic. To that end, we here at OVOLO are continuing to follow local, state, and federal guidance and taking our safety protocols seriously so that we can ensure the safety, health, and well-being of our company, clients, and community at large. From paint color selections, to choosing new furniture, to room designs, to kitchen and bathroom remodels, we're here and ready to help you on any of your design related projects.

We are continuing to meet virtually whenever possible. However, we know that it is not possible to do everything virtually so we are meeting clients in person for any design related activity when needed while following those guidelines and safety protocols. Here are a few highlights: we continue to wear masks and require those around us to do the same, we use wash our hands and use hand sanitizer before and after every meeting, we disinfect all items used at a meeting (like pens, tape measures, and more) both before and after meetings, and we maintain a meeting log to be used for contact tracing in a worst-case scenario (which will be shredded after the log is no longer needed).

Through it all, we continue to help cost-conscious homeowners and renters who would like a personalized design that speaks to them; we help our clients go from being unsure about starting and implementing a project to having a well-executed design that is custom-tailored to specific goals, objectives, and style in just 7 easy design stages. If you'd like to know more about how we can help with your specific design project, please contact us.

Space Planning Principles for your Entryway

Photo by Douglas Sheppard on Unsplash See these principles in action on our Houzz ideabook. Planning a new entryway or planning to redecorate/redesign your existing entryway? Below are some space planning principles to keep in mind for the entryways. In terms of rooms, the entryway, or foyer, gets easily overlooked, but it should be one of your first considerations. It’s needs to be both functional and fashionable: a place to enter the home from the outside on a day to day basis, a place to direct people to other areas of the home, and a place to give a first impression to guests. The front entry is where your front door is located and the back entry could be directly from a garage or could open onto a driveway (this entry could be the primary day to day entry of the home, depending upon it’s use). The back entry does not usually include sliding doors or french doors from a bedroom, living room, dining room, or kitchen; however, it may typically be included within a laun

Why hire an interior designer? What's the cost?

Hint: the cost to hire and interior designer is generally more than this. Photo by NeONBRAND on Unsplash When do most people think about when hiring an interior designer? Aesthetic choices: paint colors for the wall; curtains, blinds, or shutters; a new sofa and rug; fabric patterns for pillows; and so on. But there's a lot more that a designer can add to a home. A professional designer can go beyond mere cosmetics to ensure that the whole room feels harmonious through and through, from the space plan (floor plan) to the finishing details to yes, fabric and wall color choices. The designer also deals with a whole host of stores, vendors, contractors, electricians, painters, other artists, and more depending upon the project. A good interior designer will take your needs, personality, tastes, and lifestyle into account, not just thrust their own style upon you and assume your needs for the project. A good interior designer will also take the time to build relationships and
