When Domino launched in 2005, the magazine firmly dismissed the idea that interior design is only for the rich and famous. That liberated attitude towards creating a beautiful living space has paved the way for companies like Decorist, which we told you about late last year, and now Homepolish, a startup that connects local designers with customers.
After launching in major cities across the country (like NYC, LA, and Chicago), founders Noa Santos and Will Nathan recently expanded to SF. The Homepolish approach involves three steps: the designer comes to your home, then budget and personal style are established, and finally, the project is completed with transparent fees and industry discounts throughout the process. With a budge of around $1,000 or more, you can expect Homepolish to source brand names mixed with antique finds. To see samples of local projects, check out Homepolish's SF portfolio here.
