If you're a home design buff who's getting married, you already know your wedding registry will focus on unique finds. In fact, you might have more of an interior design registry than a traditional wedding registry. You're probably coveting enchanting objects made from Murano glass (perhaps even an iconic mushroom lamp), a budget-friendly Barcelona-style daybed, a bubbly Mario Bellini sofa and really anything that appears in Athena Calderone's home or across the pages of Architectural Digest.

But what if we said you could register for interior design services in addition to furniture and decor? Well, you can. Here, we've listed the best online options for giving any tired space an exciting refresh. With the help of decorating experts, you can really turn your design dreams into a reality. And, for good measure, we've also curated some of the most stunning eye-candy decor pieces that would make Nate Berkus swoon. Before we dive in, one additional tip: If you're planning on commissioning a local designer from your area, saving up for a big statement furniture piece, or simply would like a little flexibility when it comes to your future design whims, a cash fund dedicated to design is another great option. Regardless of which route you go, you can add any item or service to your The Knot Registry using the instructions here. A well-curated wedding registry makes for a well-curated newlywed love nest and we know you're up to the task with your immaculate taste in interiors.

The Best Interior Design Services for Your Registry

Virtual interior design services have seen a spike in popularity these past few years—and we can see why. Whether you're looking for tips for combining the furnishings from your separate apartments into a cohesive home aesthetic or a professional opinion as you get a bunch of new stuff, online interior design services offer pro advice for projects big and small—no matter your space, style or budget.

1. Havenly

Havenly interior design services to add to your registry

What we love about Havenly is its emphasis on personalization and the extra sensitivity to the client's design budget. No matter which of the two gift packages you choose (the Mini or the Full, both of which are surprisingly affordable), you'll receive a unique design concept and plenty of style ideas for your room of choice, including expertly selected product recommendations that are easily shoppable. But first, you take a fun style quiz where you and your sweetheart select images of the rooms you each love and Havenly will determine your collective design style. Afterwards, you'll get matched with a designer that suits your tastes (and every professional is certified through an accredited interior design program). The best part? You get your first round of design pitches in just two days and can get as many revisions on your room revamp as you'd like.

2. Decorilla

Why tap the expertise of one interior designer when you can have two? That's the big draw when it comes to Decorilla—pitch your vision once and get two different interpretations. Regardless of which plan you choose out of the three budget tiers on offer (prices will also vary a bit depending on the size and significance of the room you're restyling), you'll always receive a 3D rendering, a floor plan including new and existing furniture you'd like to incorporate, as well as open text and email communication to take care of any questions. Note: The three price tiers reflect the different experience levels of the designers, but you really can't go wrong with any of Decorilla's fleet of professionals. You can also request a gift card for any amount that can go toward the makeover of your choice.

3. roomLift

roomLift interior design services for wedding registry

Between offering easily accessible professionals to designs perfectly tailored to a space down to the squarefoot, the world of virtual interior design services has come a long way in making sure clients still get a personal touch. RoomLift takes that notion one step further by sending physical swatches and samples for you to touch, test and compare. These samples are selected after completing a thorough style questionnaire, during which you can specify details down to if the space should be pet-friendly. You can request an interior design gift card to be used toward one of three packages: a full room makeover, an accessories-only update or a virtual consultation with a designer. Also, there's no pressure to purchase the suggested furniture or room accessories, so it's a great choice if you want to take the reins yourself after getting inspired.

4. The Expert

the expert interior design services for your wedding registry

There's some serious interior design star power going on over at The Expert, which connects clients with some of the biggest names in the industry to help bring their home design visions to life. Think: Jenna Lyons of J.Crew fame and Brigette Romanek, whose style has caught the eye of Gwenyth Paltrow and Beyonce. Get their input without breaking the bank—just have a few ideas ready about the look and feel of your space and ask any and all questions during your 25- or 55-minute consultation. Prices begin at $450, but you can request a gift card to put toward a chat with the A-list designer of your choice.

8. Campbell-Rey X Laguna B Set of Two Cosimo Wine Glasses

Murano glass has been having a moment in design and this set of two wine glasses showcases the material in its most beautiful form. They're hand-blown by Murano glassmaker Laguna B and feature a lightly flared basin and smooth modern stem. We adore the romantic blush and sunshine-yellow colorway, too. (And if you're really a Murano glass lover, or have a Venetian honeymoon on the books, you might want to add this experience in Italy, too.)

12. Anthropologie Greecian Bust Table Lamp

Classical design elements have been on the upswing in recent years (and very truly never went out of style to begin with). We're sure you've noticed a glut of Grecian-style busts in the homes of design-savvy folks and we love how this lamp takes that notion and adds a little pizazz by turning what's usually a simple statue into an eye-catching lamp. It casts a dreamy glow perfect for winding down with a book and some tea after the wedding fuss is all over.
