Similarly to visiting a hairdresser for the first time or having a tailor design you a custom suit, having your ideas in one place before meeting with an architect will help all parties involved with clear communication. While architects can help you formalize your ideas into reality they need direction from you as to what you envision. In this modern day age the internet, smart phones and tablets, and a multitude of design applications out there available for homeowners – collecting images, floor plans, materials and even inspiration from nature, fashion, buildings and everyday lifestyle pictures will help your architect when meeting with you.

The Ellipzes story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Maurella Lamore launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture.
