Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Do you really work with all types of budgets?
No budget is too small! And we really mean that: take a look through our past project portfolio on Houzz and you'll see all budget types and room types. We will work with you to provide you an affordable, cost-effective, and personalized design solution that fits your style, budget, and any other constraints of your particular project.
What if I don't live in the Bay Area; can you help me?
Yes, we can help you in two ways: a Virtual Consultation or Extended Location Service.
1) Virtual Consultation: Please note that the experience would not be as ideal since so much in design requires in-person attendance. For example, paint and fabric colors will look different depending on the time of day, the compass orientation of the room, and do not look the same through the lens of a camera. Thus, we can not guarantee the same quality design as with a standard in-person design process where we can visit your home.
2) Extended Location Service: OVOLO works outside of the Bay Area to include all areas in California and around the country. In fact, we completed several projects in Coronado, CA, including a beautiful Contemporary Coastal Living Room design. We provide the same quality designs elsewhere in these Extended Location Services as we do in the Bay Area. However, due to the long distances and time required to travel, project meetings and site visits located outside of Santa Clara County are subject to additional fees depending on the location of the design services.
How can you help since I am renting and do not own the home that I live in?
We work not only with homeowners, but renters as well. We can recommend small, non-permanent fixes to decor changes that don't involve changing wall colors or light fixtures. There are also many removable wall coverings that we can recommend looking into if you are interested. Overall, we can still improve the design of your home and take it to the next level or make it feel more "homey" and less like a rental.
