Christie Bell founded Curated Home Designs in 2017 with the mission to provide high-quality, top-functioning designs that display her client’s personalities and fulfill their every need for their dream space. During that time, Christie and her team designed spaces for homeowners throughout Maryland.
Why did you start Curated?
In the spring of 2016, my father passed away. It was an incredibly heartbreaking and overwhelming time in my life; he was one of my best friends. In April of 2017, I set out to make my father more proud than he could ever imagine by running my own business. The paperwork came in from the state, making my LLC and dream official precisely one year to the date of my father’s passing, a bittersweet day, to say the least.
How was Curated Established?
My father had multiple sclerosis for over 20 years when he passed. His estate was full of belongings that needed to be organized and cleared out to sell the house. It was a daunting task, but I found out that I was pretty good at it. At this point, I decided to make my father proud by starting my organizing company which would later morph into providing strictly interior decorating services as I followed my true passion for design.
Why Do Clients Choose You?
Clients often tell me that we made a previously overwhelming task into a simple, inspiring, and fun project! At Curated, we take the time to get to know our client’s personalities, how their household functions, and their unique style, which allows us to make their vision come alive. Another thing that clients mention is the transparency of the design process and pricing making the whole experience enjoyable and streamlined.
