There is very little that you cannot do online these days. You can set doctor's appointments, manage car maintenance, book travel arrangements, and schedule hair appointments. You can even have the pros come to you! Painters, personal trainers, dog walkers, and more can be found and booked online. Being a savvy fashion illustrator who embraces the advantages of using modern technology, Carly Kuhn enlisted the help of online interior design firm Laurel & Wolf to redesign her work space.

Known as The Cartorialist in the social media world, this popular Instagram-mer needed help bringing some order and style to her Los Angeles home. So, why not go the traditional route? In an interview with InStyle Magazine, Kuhn explains, “I’m of a generation that does everything on a screen—dating, ordering food, finding a handyman—so it made sense to me to design my home that way, too.” 

Kuhn is quite an accomplished artist and knows quality when she sees it. Having worked with design brands like Dior, she was very particular about the elements of design she wanted incorporated into her work space. She wanted a clean, inspiring, Bohemian, yet modern style, with plenty of space to work and ample storage. Kuhn welcomed the collaboration with an expert in the interior design field that would help her put all of her ideas together. That's where Laurel & Wolf came in.

Julian Porcino, an artist and interior designer, was the perfect choice to work with Kuhn. “My goal was to create a space that was both functional and aesthetically pleasing,” Porcino says, “a space that reflected Carly’s work and personal style.”

Laurel & Wolf offers two design package options: Classic for $149 per room and Signature for $249 per room. The Classic offers you a one-on-one online consultation with a designer who shares a similar design aesthetic. The Signature gives you a choice of 3 designers after you preview their work. You then collaborate to come up with a vision board. The finished product includes unlimited design revisions, a final room design and a shopping list. Order your furnishings through Laurel & Wolf for better in-house service and great pricing. When everything arrives, simply follow your plan to install!
