I needed someone to move some TVs and art around to redecorate and refresh our office conference room, reception area and some of our executives' offices. Kerry was punctual and he did a great job. I chose him over several other highly rated providers because of his interior design and organization background and I am so glad I did. He enhanced the plans I started with and the project areas look better than I imagined. Kerry is a patient perfectionist!

Monica did an AMAZING job as my wedding decorator and coordinator. I would have opted for a courthouse wedding if it wasn't for her. She was on top of everything, and would figure out what I liked and didn't like. She was prompt in all her responses. My husband was also very impressed with all that she did to decorate our venue and to piece the reception together.

LV did a great job in decorating and putting together the candy/dessert buffet table for my daughter's 7th birthday. I received many compliments from my guests on how the barbie-themed dessert table was done so great. The colors and theme were done according to what I wanted. The youthful elegance and simplicity that was promised was achieved. Despite of the windy weather, the decorations held up well. The photobooth banner (my daughter's name) was misspelled at first, but it was fixed right away and everything turned out well. I highly recommend LV Odineva events and designs. Thank you again LV!

Shelly is such a sweet woman who has a true passion for flowers and all things vintage. It was great working with her, she provided beautiful flowers for my Temecula Wine Country Wedding in July 2015. I was a bride who was overwhelmed with my teaching position, planning our move to another city, experiencing family dramas, and Shelly was constant through it all. She truly cares about her brides/clients and ensures that she executes your vision to the tee. I changed my mind and was unsure of quite a bit (not having any experience with floral arrangements and types). I wasn't even sure what look I was going for. With the help of Shelly and Pinterest she was able to bring my vision to life. I would definitely recommend her services, you won't be disappointed. If you aren't aware, flowers are expensive and you have to be understanding. Hire Shelly and you won't be disappointed. She was the best vendor selection that I made! Thanks Shelly, blessings to you and your family!

This is my first time working with an interior decorator. I hired Brooke to help me design my living room. We just bought a new house and are trying to mix the older furniture with the new. Brooke, came in, assessed the situation, took pictures and measurements then came back the following week with a whole presentation including 2 different looks. She seemed to really understand my taste and put it all together nicely. She also offered to bring some samples to the house so we can see what it will look like in the room before I purchase them. I'm excited to see the room when it is complete. Brooke has been awesome to work with so far and I plan to continue to use her services! I highly recommend Brooke. She's extremely reasonable when it comes to cost and definitely goes above and beyond.

I am a realtor and have worked with Ideal Homes Staging on multiple occasions to prepare listings for sale. Lorie's creative angle on design and decorating make a HUGE difference when I list a home. Not only does her staging help a home sell faster, but also for top dollar. There's nothing worse than presenting buyers with an empty home, or a poorly decorated one. The fee Lorie charges pays for itself many times over (5-10 fold return). Trust Lorie to help your home make the best first impression.

I needed help choosing paint colors for the the walls and what color flooring I should use that would match the furniture I have and the rest of my decor. She also helped choose the type and color of carpet for my stairs. Cheryl has a good eye for color and new how colors will change once I had painted and the floors were installed. Everything worked out great. She also had some good suppliers to refer me to.

We contacted Adorn Oc for a bathroom remodel and we were promptly contacted by Kimber. She came to do a consultation and we absolutely had a great feeling about her knowledge and eye for detail.. she listened to our wants and needs for the functionality of the room and with great accomplishments succeeded in bringing our vision to reality! We plan on doing our kitchen in the summer and Adorn Oc will be the company we use again... Donna K, Orange County

The decorations always look as if they were flawlessly made. I’ve been to a wedding where they were the decorators and everything was so elegant and beautiful. Not only do the decorations bring out the hosts personality, but it’s incredibly thought through. Honestly, one of the most professional, flawless, and fantastic decorators I’ve ever met.

Working with Amanda was a great experience. She has help me pick out carpet, chairs and an area rug to match my decor. She really wanted to help me find exactly what I wanted. She was very patient. It took about 2 months for me to decide on the dining room chairs. Amanda has excellent taste. I look forward to working with her on future projects.

Style Umbrella decorated and set up my entire event! We have elaborate parties on a regular basis but this year I needed an extra hand. They exceeded my expectations in every possible way, I didn't think a company could really do such a fabulous job I will use this company again for every event I plan in the future. The cost was very reasonable and they truly outdid themselves. These girls really put in eso much effort in all the work and it showed! My guests were thoroughly impressed as was I

Krista did my wedding invitations and my wedding favor tags. I was blown away! Every aspect of planning my wedding was becoming more and more stressful, and the first fun thing I did for my wedding was to work with Krista on making a design for my invitations. I did not have a clear vision of what I wanted and Krista helped me to make decisions through small steps. It was overwhelming looking online at all sorts of different invitations, but Krista asked me simple questions that helped me to weed out what I didn’t want and discover what I did want. I ended up with an overall product that really gave guests a glimpse into what the wedding would be like. I had so many compliments on my invitations, and they were one of a kind. Krista was always quick to respond to me, met all of her deadlines, and never even batted an eye when I asked for MULTIPLE revisions. Her attention to detail is amazing, and there is nothing I would change about my final product. I had no idea that I could get custom invitations at a reasonable price. Only a few weeks before my wedding I asked if Krista could help me with my favor tags since I was running out of time to do them myself. Krista came up with an amazing design that matched our invitations and had them to me in record time. Working with Krista on the invitations and favor tags was probably the smoothest part of planning my wedding. With Babies on the brain I know I will be in touch soon to help with baby announcements and kid birthday parties. I am a customer for life. Thank you Krista!!!

Debi & her team are the best resource I know of for party and event help. We've used her for charity events, birthday and anniversary party planning, execution and gift help, decorating for the holidays. I also had Debi help with team parties. No detail is left out or unattended to. She's organized, creative, and fun to work with.

I have to start off by saying that Patricia is a very nice and sweet lady. That's one of things I really loved about her. She takes her job very serious and gets the job done! I called her last minute and she still made sure my event (Baby Shower) was very nice and BEAUTIFUL!! I got my moneys worth and everyone loved the designs which made me feel even better. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with decorating any event.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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.

    How much do interior designers charge?

    You can hire an interior design for a job as basic as a one-room consultation or as complex as supervising the design of an entire new home, helping with space planning, choosing color palettes, and shopping for furniture, flooring and artwork. The size and scope of the job will determine how much an interior designer charges; the average national cost for an interior designer ranges from $75 to $100 or more per hour. Other cost factors include the person’s reputation — interior designers to the stars are usually more expensive — and region. Most interior designers charge an average of $100-$225 for an initial consultation, but some will charge an hourly rate, usually starting at an average of $50, for larger projects that require extensive consultations. Hourly rates may be available for smaller projects, such as redecorating a living room or staging a home for sale; for instance, shopping and consulting can cost an average of $75 to $100 per hour, while staging costs and average $95 per hour. For many homeowners, a percentage of an interior designer’s cost is recouped through the professional discounts they receive from their vendors.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
