The Boom of Inside Stories and Micro Decorating During A Pandemic

Even during a global pandemic, we’ve been busier than ever with an influx of new design projects. Devon and Miranda recently talked with Architectural Digest Pro to share with them how interior designers like themselves are pivoting in the wake of COVID-19. It’s not simple to say that any interior design business is “recession-proof,” but willing to take “micro-decorating” or “micro-design” opportunities might prove to be recession-resistant.

While our full-service approach to interior design with Duet Design Group may not be able to handle all small and quick projects that are requested, our affiliate company, Inside Stories by Duet Design Group, can. With everyone spending more time at home, they realize that their space doesn’t function the way they want it or are ready to finally start the home projects they’ve been putting off. With four in-house full- time interior designers under the guidance of Devon and Miranda, Inside Stories has the bandwidth to handle all size projects.

Since Inside Stories launched in 2016, we’ve been perfecting this new concept of micro-designing years before the COVID-19 pandemic.  From designing a handful of rooms in a client’s home to helping select a paint palette, we can handle all size projects and complete them within a few weeks. Before this concept, in the old world, interior design firms typically didn’t have the capacity to handle demand for smaller projects. Now with the ability to fulfill all size projects through Inside Stories, this opens up the availability to have a professional interior designer help with your project that you didn’t have available as an option before. In simple terms it’s the entry level product into the amazing world of interior design.

Single Space Full Design

We understand that not everyone has the budget to redesign their entire home all in one phase, which is why Inside Stories offers single space designs. They can provide a full design for a single space that will still create a seamless transition to the adjacent spaces of your home. From a master bedroom that doesn’t function well to an outdated kitchen, the Inside Stories interior designers can design it.
