How it Works

An exciting new concept in interior design…

MDO provides planning for your interior design projects via an online presentation. MDO provides easier access to licensed interior designer, Maura Braun, IIDA, MFA , with 25 years of experience, via Skype or in person depending on your project’s location. MDO gives you the option to D.I.Y. at a much more affordable rate than working with a traditional interior design firm. You can also choose the Designer Level of Service if you elect not to do the project yourself. MDO provides an efficient and cost effective means for working with a professional interior designer.

So let’s begin…

Begin by choosing the room you wish to redesign.  A kitchen … a bathroom …  Living room … any room.

1.  Measure the room.  Length + width + height (this is also important!)

2.  Take some photos that capture the best overall views. Stand in a corner of the room or just outside the doorway to get the best view for each photo.

3. Upload other images that show the design qualities you would like to see in your project (e.g. scanned photos from magazines, photos of other homes).
