ASID’s first-ever Summer Fresh Up event

Posted on June 12, 2020
If you’re going stir-crazy observing all the flaws in your home or business during the pandemic, the American Society of Interior Designers’ (ASID) San Diego Chapter has a solution. During the months of June and July, members of the organization will conduct virtual appointments to discuss design dilemmas and offer advice during ASID’s first-ever Summer Fresh Up event. The fee of $85 per hour (minimum one hour, maximum two hours) is a donation to the ASID chapter; the designer volunteers his/her time.

“Sheltering at home has made people eager to refresh, renew, and redesign their surroundings,” says ASID chapter president Bertha Hernandez. “This is an excellent way to brainstorm with a professional and kickstart your design projects. Appointments can be made virtually via various video conference platforms such as Zoom, Skype, and FaceTime, or arrangements can be made for an in-person appointment with social distancing,” she says.

“No matter what your project — commercial, residential, hospitality, healthy home, universal design, green design, aging-in-place, color scheme selection, kitchen/bath remodeling, outdoor rooms, multigenerational living, feng shui, or downsizing — ASID can provide an expert that can give you stylish and sensible advice that is often money-saving, too,” Hernandez adds.

The list of participating interior designers and their companies is available at under ASID Summer Fresh Up.
