PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - Oct 15, 2012) - Favery today announced www.favery.com, a new social site that allows users to solicit feedback on their personal style -- from fashion to decorating, entertaining to beauty and everything in between. Users can post ideas and images on Favery's visual bulletin boards, gather specific collaborators together and get feedback, opinions and suggestions through private collaborations, voting and comments. Favery is the place to have a dialogue about just about anything, from dinner parties to weddings to remodeling, with those friends whose style you love and trust.
Favery makes it easy to save inspirational images and text, share your favorite things with friends and get advice in real-time. Want to know which dress your bridesmaids prefer? Testing out inspiration colors for your fall line? Deciding between three crown-moulding types for your living room or two hotels for your vacation? Favery's conversation tools make it easy to share options and get instant feedback, and unlike other curation sites, Favery offers public, private and invite-only boards, making it a snap to pick and choose the right audience or collaborators for any event or project.
"There are so many wonderful, creative ideas floating around online that it's become difficult to narrow down options, let alone make a decision," said Anne Nichols, CEO of Favery. "Gathering ideas and inspiration is important, but it's only the first step. With Favery, users can sort through their options by having friends give suggestions or cast votes. Mulling over which nursery theme to pick or couch to buy? Post some options, ask questions and get the perspective you need to move forward."
Favery is a collaborative way to plan and coordinate life and style decisions. Users ask for opinions on everything from what they want to wear, eat or buy, to where they want to go. Planning a wedding and trying to zero in on a theme? Picking paint colors for your bathroom remodel, but only want to poll those whose style you admire? Favery lets users create a visual poll by assembling images and writing a question. The poll can be posted and voted on by the community, or shared privately with friends.
"In the wedding planning business, there is a constant exchange of ideas between the planner and bride," said Stacy McCain, Owner of San Francisco's Stacy McCain Event Planning. "We enjoy using Favery to communicate and coordinate our clients' event details. One of our favorite features is being able to make boards private. Sharing boards with clients and vendors makes it quick and easy to solicit feedback around the countless details that go into designing an unforgettable wedding. Favery's polls are essential to helping our clients narrow down their choices and make decisions on everything from color palettes to flowers to printed pieces."
Favery fills a need among consumers and design professionals and planners to move beyond the public broadcasts that other sites provide and instead hold meaningful conversations and targeted opinion polls with one goal: to help make a decision.
"Favery's unique voting feature helps me get valuable design feedback from my clients," said Jeannie Fraise, owner of San Francisco's LotusBleu Home Décor and Design company. "I am able to share a first-round design scheme with a client and they can vote for their favorite things which helps me refine their design details. It's an advantage to have an easy, visual way to get input throughout the duration of a project on items such as rugs, wallpaper and furniture."
Favery members looking for inspiration can browse boards and tips from top names in lifestyle, bridal, design and more, such as Anna Beth Chao, decorator and stylist from home décor blog AB Chao, Lia Griffith, creative director from design studio and stationery business Elli, and Heidi Zumbrun, owner of Gertrude and Mabel Wedding Photography studio.
