After owning my home for about 35 - it was time for a major overhaul. I also wanted to add an addition over my garage that included a new bedroom and to move a bathroom and laundry space that was in the original first floor so I could re-do the first floor as a completely open plan space. I was fortunate to find Debby and Creative Spaces Interior Design to work with me on this extensive (and often exhausting) project. Debby oversaw and project managed the entire renovation and addition and was involved in every detail. Her great taste, organizational skills and financial management throughout an 18 month project were invaluable to the final results and to the level of satisfaction that I have with my "new" home. She was not only a terrific partner with wonderful taste but was critical in finding the contractor, custom furniture makers, and other artisans that were needed to get this done. I would recommend Debby to anyone needing similar work done. She was not only consistantly fun, tasteful and a put joy to work with but I believe we will remain friend long after I have resettled back in my home.

My wife and I purposely resisted purchasing any furniture when we moved to our new home as we were waiting to meet the right design professional who could make our home special. From the initial meeting with Hector and Chris, I knew we were in good hands and the result is beautiful. Hector and his team are professional and helped us express my love of color and my wife’s love of whites and neutrals in the design. With their direction, practical sense of style and keen eyes they helped us create our beautiful home, including our young daughter’s room which she loves! Hector’s knowledge of products, materials & finishes is comprehensive - he truly knows his resources! His attention to details is evident; he was even able to have a wonderful custom work of art created for our living room. Our greatest reward is when guests come over and do not stop admiring how beautiful and comfortable our family home is. Their service after the project is first class. We Highly recommend Hector Romero Interior Design!

I just can't say enough about Josh ! We had a severe time crunch, and Josh was able to create his magic in record time. He was a pleasure to deal with, and his design for the staging was nothing short of brilliant ! He struck exactly the right note in every room. I wish that I could give him 6+ stars. Highly recommend.

Design & Order helped me with the Interior Design projects for my home and I am SO happy with the results! I have to admit, I was a bit stubborn with listening to some of their Design ideas but once I let go and trusted their expertise things came together beyond my expectations. I would definitely recommend these ladies to anyone looking for design help.

I had a one hour consultation with Julia and she was terrific! That hour flew by and I had so much fun getting good insight and ideas from her knowledge and expertise. I'm so glad I made the call. Not only did planning and presentation of final design go smoothly, the job got done in a timely fashion as well. The communication through the entire process was fantastic. I plan to use Julia again for any future design work. Thank you Julia, keep up the great work!

Stacy Kroot is a visual alchemist. She has a way of looking at a problem and finding a solution which is elegant, efficient and novel. She was instrumental in solving some challenging problems for my interior design project. In addition, Stacy is very detail oriented, considering things I never would’ve thought of. She is careful to think through all aspects of design and also to consider the costs. She is easy to work with and easy to get along with. Working with Stacy was truly a pleasure!

You will love working with Devlyn. From the timely, concise contract through the finishing touches, Devlyn Gorby is top notch! In the last six months, Devlyn has helped design and decorate two properties for us; one an older recently purchased home for my son and the other a small rental apt in Burbank. We are so happy with these beautiful, highly functional homes. The older home was transformed into a stunning modern property in less than two months including wall, ceiling and window treatment, lighting, art and all the furnishing. My little apt now has sleeping for four and dining for six. I reached out to Devlyn after twice purchasing a couch that wouldn't fit though the hall. If I'd started with her I would have saved more money! But I saved money anyway because Devlyn found sale furniture for me as well as a custom made reclaimed wood table. She also repurposed some of the furniture I had. Devlyn is a master in the use of color, lighting and proportion. She is also a great communicator and knows how to "make her client happy". She never dictates but draws out your ideas and preferences. I have high hopes that I will have the pleasure of working with Devlyn again one day and I'm sure that once you've worked with her you will feel the same.

So happy with my new home! I hired Ranj to help me with the interior design of my home that I recently purchased. Not knowing where to start from and what to pick out. I gave her my wish list and true enough she was very detailed, specific and she delivered results that went beyond my expectations. I am very happy with the results and I’m glad I decided to work with Ranj!

Recently contacted Annie for a consultation after we already had plans approved from city. She had a contractor come to the meeting too, to give us an estimate. During the meeting, they came up with a better design and floor plan that none of us had thought of. Basically, we wish we had called Annie and her team earlier, because now we’re having the plans re-drawn with the new design. Can’t wait to get the new plans approved and get started. Definitely recommend hiring. Will save you time and money in the long run.

Andreas has an incredible eye and professional. The interior design work he did on our home was exceptional - his designer's point of view is clean, modern and fresh. His global experience with various design projects brought many ideas to the table but stayed within our budget. I gladly recommend Andreas to anyone who wishes to consider hiring him as a designer.

Jocelyne was great to work with! She understood exactly what I needed and was able to give great advice. I mainly needed someone to confirm that I was on the right track and she was able to confirm some of my choices while giving advice on guidance on other areas that I believe will be much better choices in my space. Our home was a mess of a construction zone at the time that she visited and yet she jumped right in and never complained about the dust or heat. I really appreciated her and would recommend her to anyone!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does it mean to stage a home?

Home staging is the real estate strategy of decorating your home to be as marketable as possible to your target demographic. Home staging is done by interior decorators and other design pros hired by the homeowner or realtor, prior to putting a house on the market. Think of it as setting the stage for potential buyers to fall more easily in love with their future homes — and to spend top dollar to get them. It’s likely to be worth the investment: The Real Estate Staging Association reports that staged homes spend 90 percent less time on the market than those that are not staged. Home stagers can also be hired even if you’re not going anywhere. Stagers can consult on new layouts for your current home, much like an interior decorator.

Home staging can take place while you still occupy the house you plan to sell, or when the home is vacant. For an occupied home, the home stager will clear out clutter, rearrange furniture, and bring in decor and furniture as needed to create the perfect environment. Usually an occupied home has far too much of the current owner’s personality stamped on it, which makes it hard for prospective buyers to envision themselves living there. A home stager should neutralize and beautify the space. In vacant homes, a home stager will bring in furniture and decor so that potential buyers don’t walk into an empty house, which can be equally hard to imagine living in as a cluttered, occupied home.

 

What do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.

How much does it cost to stage a home for sale?

Nationally, the price for home staging ranges between $750 and $1,500. The price varies based on how many rooms in the house need staging, whether furniture and decor are needed or the stager can work with the client’s belongings, whether the home is occupied or vacant, and the sale price of the home. Occupied homes typically cost less to stage as they are already furnished, and can require less time and resources than staging an empty house. The main tasks when staging an occupied home are rearranging and decluttering. Staging an empty house can be more expensive as furniture and decor need to be trucked in, requiring transportation, physical labor and potential rental fees. Here are some examples of average home staging costs:

  • 2-hour consultation: $200, includes DIY tips and guidance.
  • 1- to 2-hour consultation and design session: $250, including written report.
    • Additional design consulting: $65 per hour.
  • 8 hours of staging an occupied home: $800.
    • Hands-on staging involving moving furniture, hanging and moving art, and decluttering.
  • Starting price for staging a vacant home could be $2,200.
  • A home stager may charge 1 percent of the home’s selling price.

How do you choose an interior designer?

Choosing an interior designer is all about finding one whose signature style fits well with your tastes and who can work within your budget. To choose the right professional for your interior design project, ask yourself these five questions:

  • What is your signature style? Good interior designers can both describe their personal aesthetic and demonstrate their signature style through their portfolios. Make sure it appeals to you.
  • How will you make sure the design fits my lifestyle? Good designers understand that the interior design must improve a homeowner’s experience in their home and fit into their lifestyle; for example, a white suede sofa is a poor choice for a family with large dogs and small children.
  • How much do you charge? Depending on the project, an interior designer may charge an hourly rate, a flat fee or a percentage of the project’s total cost.
  • How will you stick to my budget? An interior designer should have a plan for staying within your budget, which includes full transparency of costs and flexibility when choosing materials and furnishings.  

Because an interior design project is highly collaborative and based on hard-to-define personal preferences, it’s most important to choose a designer who communicates clearly and listens closely to you.
