Affiliate Marketing

Shop Chic Home relies on Affiliate Marketing to be profitable.  What is Affiliate Marketing?  Companies that we partner with pay Shop Chic Home a small percentage of every sale we send their way.  So, when you click on an item you found on Shop Chic Home and purchase that item on the retailer’s website, the retailer pays us (their affiliate) for sending them that sale.  This system works much like the design industry which typically charges a mark-up on sales to clients–only in this case it is the retailer (the store) and not the client (you!) who has to pay.  Rest assured that like any professional Interior Design firm, we would never highlight a product or company so that we can make a profit.  And as a result we only showcase those items that meet our strict aesthetic qualifications.







A collection of my current design obsessions, Shop Chic Home is the place to get professional design advice, inspiration, and the know-how you need to take your home from bleak to chic. Let's go shopping!
