Sunday, August 17, 2014 • 3:03pm
RANDOLPH, NJ-Get some design advice and do a good deed! Spruce It Up!, sponsored by the New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers, will pair you with a qualified interior designer who can analyze your residential or commercial space and help you develop a new direction to meet your needs. From September 1 – October 31, 2014, ASID designers will provide one- or two-hour consultations at a special rate of $150 per hour. Participants will get to designate which of the 24 participating New Jersey Habitat for Humanity affiliates will receive their consultation fee and will write the check directly to that Habitat affiliate.
Spruce It Up! offers the chance to pick up some ideas to transform a tired interior, avoid costly mistakes, and get some advice on how to maximize the design potential of your home or office environment. Spruce It Up!, sponsored by the New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), is the perfect program for anyone who has resisted consulting an interior designer because they thought their job was too small, their budget too modest, or that a designer’s services would be too costly.
For additional information about the program or to request a Spruce It Up! consultation with an ASID designer in your area, contact the New Jersey Chapter of ASID at 732-787-5981 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
