Our Mamapreneur this week is Dara Barber who along with her partner, Aly Glavin, are the creators of The Daraly. They believe that everybody deserves to have a beautiful home and hope to help by offering online design services. The Daraly provides affordable and convenient design by professionals and is accessible to everyone from the comfort of your own home!
For the past three years, the duo ran a successful kitchen and bath design studio in Charlotte, NC. There they would get lots of requests from busy moms looking for help to make their home a beautiful retreat in the midst of the chaos of life. The moms had tons of Pinterest boards filled with ideas and they were looking for help putting it all together. They often found the time to dream and research for projects, but finding time to meet with a designer never came as a priority, so projects were left in the “dream phase”. Working online was the best solution to fit into their schedules – we mean, late at night with wine is when we all sit and pin great ideas, right?
Many of these moms were on a budget, looking to make it happen using a combo of DIY and hiring trades to get their projects done. They wanted just a bit of professional help telling them exactly what paint color to use with what tile and with which light fixture. Essentially, they needed a roadmap for their renovation that gave them all the selections and places to buy the materials to complete their look. And that is how The Daraly was born!
Designing and updating your home should be fun – and it is! With The Daraly you get your own portal you can access anytime, anywhere. Sitting in carpool line, in between appointments, during naptime, at night after the kids have gone to bed – whenever you have time, you can work on your design.
Answer a few questions, snap a few photos of your room (and don’t bother cleaning up your mess, we want to see it all!), and upload some of those great photos you’ve saved online so we can see your inspo. We take all of that and deliver a personalized design for your next project including a moodboard, a shopping list with clickable links and useful info, a drawing of a similar space so you can see it all together, and some general design advice to get you going on a bigger project.
The Daraly provides the Roadmap to your Renovation – from a quick powder room update to a full kitchen remodel. Everyone deserves to have their home look amazing and The Daraly can help you do that! Get inspired by past projects and learn more at http://thedaraly.com.
