Manhattan apartments are known for their narrow compositions, limiting the amount of natural light and making furniture arrangement a daunting task. Debra reached out to Decorilla, a crowdsourced online decorating site for guidance in giving her living room and dining area a needed transformation. There was no risk on her end because Decorilla has a 100% money back guarantee.

Decorilla’s vetted interior decorators are no strangers to designing for small spaces and were glad to help. Here are some highlights from the project!

Range of Room Design Ideas

Once the project was launched, Debra received eight design proposals from professional interior designers. She had fun viewing the varied design ideas and imagining her living room possibilities.

Making Design Choices

After receiving all of the design concepts, Debra chose a design team. Two designers collaborated together to e-design a fresh approach for Debra’s space.

The challenges and solutions included:

• creating more light and openness
• incorporating a new sofa in a spatial layout that limited clutter and maximized space
• adding texture and color scheme that enhanced her style


With Debra’s preferred colors in mind, a gorgeous, original piece of artwork found on Zatista was selected to showcase above her new sofa. From there, a color palette emerged and decisions were made on finishes that would complement the space further.


Enjoying Big Benefits

Debra was thrilled to see her space as a 3D realistic rendering. She never dreamed her space could look so good on such a budget! In addition to this, Debra’s designer was able to offer Debra exclusive discounts on every single product with exclusive Decorilla coupons for her shopping list items, totaling over $1,600 in savings. At only $395 for the full e-décor package, Decorilla paid for itself four times over!

Her carefully curated shopping list included items from top companies such as Viesso, All Modern, and Lazzoni. Accessories such as the sleek Kailua Stools from Zinc Door, and the Ashton Sutton Multi Mirror Wall Unit from Wayfair added modern flair at an affordable price.
