From House…to Home

Move-In Design Specialist

There’s nothing easy about moving. 

But Design Compass’ “From House to Home” service helps to alleviate the stress of moving day by transforming your newly purchased house into a home that you’ll love, using your chosen items.

We’ll bring your visions to reality to ensure your new home is comfortable while sparing you the expense and trouble of moving items you won’t use into your new surroundings.


Before the move...

We will meet at your current residence (either in person or virtually) to assess all that is headed to your new home.

I’ll take measurements of your furniture, and inventory: 

  • wall decor
  • area rugs
  • accents
As an advocate for your wallet, I’ll work with what you have.

Then, we’ll meet at your new home...

  • We will take measurements of the rooms and get an overall feel of your new space. 
  • If needed, to-scale floor plans will be drawn for your new home’s layout using your chosen items. 
  • If you’d like to fill in the blanks with new pieces, I can assist with the selection process.
  • Additional outsourced services will be set up if needed, such as wall decor hanging and window coverings. 
  • We’ll even have a plan in place for where artwork and décor will be placed. 

Moving Day...

I can also be there on moving day to meet your truck with my comfy shoes on ready to assist.

While you are fielding questions from the movers about where boxes belong, I’ll be directing them where your sofa, chairs, and other furnishings go so your new house feels more like a home on your very first night.

Project Details... 

Moving from CA to AZ

Ernie and Stacy moved to a much larger home than they had in San Jose and took everything they owned with them.  After a couple of months of enjoying their much larger new home in Arizona, they knew they needed help figuring out where all of their furniture and artwork should go.  

Our House to Home 2 hr. Virtual Zoom call

During our 2 hr. consultation, we determined several things that were immediate action items for them. 

  • Move the family room furniture around for a better flow
  • Move the guest bedroom bed onto a different wall to open up the space more
  • Look for a piece of artwork of a certain size that they both loved, that would go above the family room sofa.  They found one on their trip to Hawaii.
  • Put up all of their artwork where I directed them for placement

Special Requests...

Ernie had always wanted a pinball machine, and in their new home, he knew the formal living room as an excellent entertainment space for the pinball machine, service bar, and a bar height table.  Stacy wasn’t so sure. 

I quickly pointed out that they had a large eating area next to their kitchen for dining and a great formal dining room next to the living room.  We talked about options for all of the rooms and how they related to each other.  

We quickly decided to turn the formal dining room into a lounge where they could enjoy entertaining their friends while also creating a place for them to spend time together in comfort for the rest of the year.

This brought Ernie’s vision to fruition while giving Stacy a plan so that she could rest easy.

The Action Plan...

With my help they not only have their original items in place, but they also have a plan on what to purchase as they find items they both love as they continue to make their house a home they will enjoy for years to come.

Jamie's help was the best part about our move!

We just moved to Arizona to a much bigger house, and did not know where to start. We took advantage of Jamie's House to Home package via zoom and in just two hours we had so many ideas. She is easy to work with and great with lighting. Jamie is fantastic!"
