HomePolish: Design for the Masses

Read Article
Professional designers at rates even those with a modest budget can afford—sounds too good to be true. Yet that is exactly what young New York startup HomePolish has been doing across the city for the last year. Demand for their services is high (there is currently a waitlist for future clients) and with over 500 projects under their belt, it’s not hard to see why.

  One of the best parts about having a designer is having the courage to take the leap into a bold statement. A patterned entry wallpaper let's you say "...it's perfectly alright to be jealous" - without actually having to say it. Photo by Chellise Michael Photography.

  "Having a seat" in the reception area of Codeacademy’s New York office isn't like having a seat at your dentist's. Worn leather coupled with local art and a splash of green gives you the sense that this startup has arrived. Photo by Chellise Michael Photography.

  The best way to make a small space work is to find the hidden gems. The high ceilings, exposed brick and ridiculous skylight in this Chelsea one-bedroom gave us a pretty good foundation to go mountain-man modern. Photo by Chellise Michael Photography.

  A bedroom is the best place to be moody. Use a saturated color (put down the off-white!) and a satin finish (preserves the light) on the walls—we promise you won't regret it. Photo by Chellise Michael Photography.

  If the shade is ugly, throw it away. Sometimes bending the rules a little allows for a creative surprise—and that's what good design is all about. Photo by Francisco Aguila

  Maybe we just like being dramatic but creating vignettes throughout a home is a great way to introduce a variety of living environments. Photo by Chellise Michael Photography.

  Walls are overrated. Instead we mounted a ceiling track and suspended a 13-foot piece of art that slides to become the bedroom wall. Viola—instant privacy! Photo by Chellise Michael Photography.
