On a Mission…

February 26, 2020

A little history

As many of you know, I started The East Coast Home (formerly Jessica McDevitt Interiors) about seven years ago after leaving my job as a Design Specialist for a large retailer. During that time, I’ve had the perfect mix of getting to do what I love while also being there for my family. Recently, my son started high school and my daughter 7th grade. They’re getting more and more independent and I’ve started to realize that I have more time on my hands to focus on growing my business and investing in myself on a professional level. I’ve really been “on a mission” since then – diving in to blogging, social media, and taking on more clients than ever!

But, I also want to be sure that I’m doing everything with intention and that’s why I’ve recently spent some time really thinking about my vision for both my personal life and business. In essence, what IS my mission? Well, my personal mission has always been the same – to have the freedom to spend the most time being a mom to my kids. I left my corporate job about 17 years ago and have never looked back – instead wanting to focus on my experience with my kids while they were young. During that time, I took several part-time jobs and also had a few small business ideas to make some extra money (and also to just have something of my own to keep my non-mom brain working). I worked in retail, I had a couple of MLM businesses, I was a sales rep for a gift company, I made lotions, and I even did advertising sales. At the time, I felt like I was just trying to make some extra money. But, looking back on all of it now, it’s so obvious that there have always been two themes going on; wanting to create and be around beautiful things and an affinity for sales/marketing.

More ways to serve more clients

So, that brings me to my business mission for The East Coast Home. When I started this business I knew that I had finally found my sweet spot of creating beautiful things and satisfying my entrepreneurial side. Over the years, I’ve come to define my business mission as being “To help my clients create a space that they love to come home to“. As I’m growing my business it’s become so important to me to be able to help as many people as possible to achieve this; any budget, any location, any home. So, I’m really excited that I now have three ways that I can help you to achieve that beautiful home that you’ve been striving for:

  1. Traditional Interior Design Services: This is a full-service experience where I come to your home for a consultation, measure, take photos, and then provide you with space plans, furniture, rug and window recommendations. Then, once the basics are in, I come back for a full styling with accessories. This service is for those who are looking for help from start to finish. Please contact me for rates and project minimums.
  2. E-Design. I’m so happy to be able to offer this service to those of you who maybe don’t have the budget for traditional design services or don’t live in the area. This is an affordable option where you send me your measurements and fill out a short questionnaire. Then I’ll create a mood board, layout, and source sheet specifically designed for your space. You can get more info on E-Design services here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEastCoastHome
  3. The East Coast Home Blog: Don’t have the budget for an interior designer? That’s ok! I’m working hard to make this blog a space where you can come for design inspiration, tips, and shopping finds. So, check back often and be sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and Liketoknow.it!

I’m really excited about the future of The East Coast Home. I’m working every day to help you love the place that you come home to!

I can’t thank you enough for being here and supporting this blog. Please leave me a comment to let me know that you were here and tell me what you’d like to see more of.
