Design in a Bag

I got a call from a potential client this morning inquiring about help with her kitchen remodel. She said she had a good start already because she had purchased a "Design in a Bag" that she saw in Better Homes and Gardens. Now she just needed a little guidance and direction in terms of construction, functionality, and implementing the design.

The second I heard "Design in a Bag" my ears perked up because it was an idea my mother had suggested to me about 3 years ago. At the time, my design business was just beginning, which gave me enough to worry about, so I didn't do anything with her idea. But perhaps I should have...

Thanks to google I found Design in a Bag within a couple of minutes of hanging up the phone. Certified kitchen and bath designer, Rebekah Zaveloff, offers several designs in a bag sorted by color scheme or style (classic, vintage, or modern) which you can view and purchase straight from her website,

Your Design in a Bag will cost your around $75-$100, and will come complete with specifications for paint color, countertop material, cabinetry finish, and backspash tile, along with 3-D architectural drawings, and a purchasing guide.

I thought that maybe blogging about Design in a Bag would possibly send potential business elsewhere, but I actually think it's a great place to start for clients who are on a tighter budget. Kitchen design tends to be really involved and many clients will still feel they need assistance with their remodel, but the Design in a Bag can definitely save you time and money on the initial design.

  1. I though of mom the minute I read the title. She does have some really good ideas. Perhaps we should start listening to her.

  2. Thanks for the post about Design in a Bag! Great to hear feedback from another designer and glad to hear you think it's helpful rather than competitive - that's our hope. My mom has pretty great ideas too and when we ran this by her 8 years ago she wouldn't let us drop it. Thank heaven for great moms!You're blog and work is beautiful by the way!

  3. Rebekah, thanks so much for stopping by! You have such a great product and I'm glad I had the opportunity to blog about it!
