Social Interior Design App: The Problem
Your home is the biggest purchase you will make. Everyone uses their home to sleep, eat, relax, but it also reflects your tastes and preferences, it is a gallery of your experiences and an expression of who you are. Designing your home to reflect your style, personality and taste have sparked huge numbers of TV programmes and subsequent events. We are now inundated with choices on how to design our homes, but often people lack the confidence in choosing colours, themes and coordinating items, and of course, this has resulted in a cottage industry (!) of interior design experts.

- Lack of confidence in choosing matching colours and themes.
- Don’t fully understand the ranges available and those ranges are on several different sites.
- No easy way to connect to share information – social networks provide capability but not content.

- No easy way of adding in photos on the fly.
- Design apps and web-based apps aren’t driven by design.
