We live in a world where we can swipe left or right to romance, so why can't the rest of life be that easy? More specifically, why can't home makeovers be as easy repinning an entire Pinterest board? Luckily, a West Hollywood-based startup has dreamed up an app for that: enter Hutch, which gives decor aficionados the power to upgrade their abode in just a few swipes.
It's from the same team that created Homee, a chat-based app that connected users to interior design pros for advice. "We realized that finding and buying the right furniture for your space was a huge pain point," Hutch co-founder Beatrice Fischer-Bock tells us, so they decided to take Homee's popular visualization feature and give it a life of its own.
Available as of today, the app allows users to virtually transform their pad in an array of interior design styles — including industrial, bohemian modern, contemporary, and minimalist, to name a few — and shop the entire look without leaving the house.
It works like this: simply take a photo of your space, select a look, and submit it via the app. Next, you'll get a rendering of your reinvented room, which can be swiped left and right for a before-and-after look. (Bonus: they'll even virtually "clean up" your messy space, as we experienced when we sent in a snap of our not-so-organized sofa area. Thanks, Hutch!)
You'll get a free design every 24 hours, or you can pay $4.99 for another one if you prefer not to wait another day. Each package also includes all of the products you need to upgrade your abode, like seating, lighting, furnishings, art, textiles, and more. Everything's shoppable from third-party vendors directly from the app, and you can track your order status and shipping.
