Virtual Design Kits

Virtual Design Kits are a cost-effective service from Simplified Bee® that allows clients from anywhere to receive design inspiration, planning and direction. Because clients order items on their own and communication is over phone & email, the kit tends to be less expensive than hiring a traditional interior designer. Virtual Design Kits include:
  • inspiration board(s) including furniture, paint and fabric samples
  • detailed floorplan(s) with furniture drawn to scale
  • shopping list of all the items recommended for the space
  • budgeting tool
The kit is delivered via email within fourteen business days of payment. Please contact us for rates and more information.



Client Testimonials

“Cristin combines a great eye for design and color with the realistic sensibilities of a mom. She helped me update the furniture in our family room, efficiently and enjoyably, and the results are great! We love it!” – Design Services, Palo Alto, CA

Cristin was absolutely amazing! Her ideas, suggestions, and understanding for what I was looking for was impeccable! She was respectful of my budget and a dream to work with. I have continued to use her services through out several projects in my house. I will continue to seek her professional advice and services.  – Design Services, San Mateo, CA

“I had the most amazing opportunity to work with Cristin of Simplified Bee “virtually” on the design of our new home!  With the help of technology and lots of phone calls, Cristin made my dreams a reality.  Her attention to detail of the vision that I had as well as her expertise in color and design is beyond my wildest dreams!  I loved that she worked within my budget and helps me decide which should be the investment pieces and what can be sourced inexpensively.  I have come to call her my friend and I love to know that I have this option even living 2000 miles away as I continue to design the rest of our new home!  I would refer anyone and everyone whether local or across the country to the fabulous Cristin Priest of Simplified Bee!” – Virtual Design Services, Dallas, TX

“Cristin, Thank you so much for all of your help designing our new baby’s room. Your work was so thorough and detail oriented, as well as amazingly fast. All you needed was some basic information on the layout along with our photos and you were able to expertly create two completely different designs, as if you had been standing in the room. Your final presentation was so helpful and easy to follow. The floor plan is not anything we would have thought of on our own. I especially loved the shopping list with direct links to each item which made it so easy for me to purchase the items I will use in the room. Your fee was very affordable and you also saved me money with the links to great sale items. I will definitely use your virtual interior design services in the future and will share my wonderful experience with my family and friends!” – Virtual Design Services, Nursery Room, Eustis, FL

“Cristin, Thank you for everything! I enjoyed meeting you and love the options you came up with for the baby’s nursery.” – Design Services, San Francisco, CA

“Cristin has an amazing, innate sense of style and turning drab into pizazz is her specialty. With a growing family living in a small space, she paid extra attention to my needs for reorganizing our home. Her creative ability to think outside the norm helped save money by using existing pieces of furniture in new ways. I am constantly receiving compliments on our redecorated living room, and as a busy mom I am now living more peacefully in a beautiful space with higher functionality.” – Home Organization & Styling, San Mateo, CA
