“Recently Launched Interior Design Concept is the Next Big Thing

When a business gives customers something they’ve never had before—possibly, something they never even dreamed of having—and at a much lower cost than anyone might expect—its success is, as they say, “in the bag.”  That’s the kind of success insiders expect Kentucky-based Interior Designer Liz Toombs to experience with the launch of her new business, Out of the Box Room Design (www.outoftheboxroomdesign), on December 7, 2012.

OOTB is an online interior design service that invites do-it-yourselfers to fill out a detailed questionnaire regarding their personal preference and style, upload information and photos of their current living space, and, within a few weeks, receive a package packed with everything they need to create a professionally designed room.  Everything, that is, except for the elbow grease required to pull everything together.  That, of course, is supplied by the willing DIY-er, at his/her own pace.

“Designers are constantly looking for the ‘next big thing,’” Toombs said.  “Open any design magazine, and you’ll find dozens of design elements for 2013—like vintage materials, macramé furniture, mixed patterns or monochrome geometrics—all competing to be ‘the’ idea that gets everyone excited.”  “Out of the Box Room Design takes that further than it’s ever gone before—by making professional design affordable and accessible to virtually everyone.”

Toombs, who also owns Polka Dots & Rosebuds Interiors (a full-service design firm located in Lexington, Kentucky), has become a familiar figure on Kentucky-based ABC, NBC and FOX morning and Noon shows, sharing tips on interior design projects including holiday decorations, design on a budget, and more.  Her decorating tips were featured in the May 2012 issue of Kentucky Living magazine.

Toombs graduated from the University of Kentucky’s College of Agriculture with a degree in Merchandising, Apparel & Textiles, and began her career specializing in kitchen & bathrooms.  Through continued education, she earned the title of Certified Interior Decorator and began offering complete design services.  Having always dabbled in paint since childhood, she also took up painting murals in 2002 and has continued expanding her painting portfolio ever since.  In addition to sharing her passion for decorating with others through regular speaking engagements throughout her home state, writes “Liz-spirations,” a popular decorating blog, and specializes in residential and small commercial new construction, and/or remodel projects of small and large spaces.
