Interior Design ***** Jo Anne was so wonderful to work with. She brought my desired aesthetic to life and was able to curate a space better than I’d ever imagined within my budget. She was warm, thoughtful, and so kind to me! I loved her advice about picking pieces to maximize a small space. She was able to transform my home into a functional, calming, and warm space where I could gather people over hearty conversation and good food. She was very tolerant of my work schedule and went above and beyond to make my space a home. Every step along the way, I felt she was giving my home decorating project the time, care, and attention she would give to her home space. I absolutely adored her, loved working with her, and look forward to decorating my outdoor space with her!!! Thank you so much, Jo Anne, for being patient with me and bringing my heart’s desire for my home to life! - M.M. Updated Feb 28, 2023 Verified Carmen W. Interior Design ***** Jo Anne was such an amazing ball of positive energy! It was the perfect combination of expertise, quality, and talent that helped create the welcoming good energy I wanted for the interior creation of the home. Jo Anne is also very knowledgeable and referred me to resources that would give me a better idea on my next steps for my rental. Would definitely work with her for future projects! 🙏❤️ very grateful . More photos to come! Sep 22, 2022 Verified Mark L. ***** We loved working with JoAnne and Inspiring Spaces. We would recommend working with her to anyone. Great value, attention to detail, and fantastic final results. Apr 16, 2022 Verified Claire P. ***** After 7+ years of living with our "short-term" craigslist, thrift, and Ikea furniture, I couldn't take it anymore. I knew I wanted an update, but I didn't even know where to start. Jo Anne is the perfect start. And finish. She came by to look at our small but mighty home and made amazing suggestions that works both for the space and our differing design opinions. (My husband could live in a cardboard box whereas I... couldn't.) Jo Anne provided multiple design options all within our shared aesthetic and within budget. I know if I even attempted to do this on my own, I would've spent way more money and the result would've been a hodgepodge of madness. If you're considering working with a Jo Anne for your space, close your eyes and click "book." You won't regret it! Jul 23, 2021 Verified Osayame D. Interior Design ***** Jo did an amazing job helping me with the interior design for my new home. She set the overall direction and executed very well. Her attention to detail is impeccable. I would highly recommend working with her. Apr 17, 2021 Verified Mary F. Interior Design ***** JoAnne is amazing and so easy to work with. She has helped me so much with pulling together the design for our Monte Rio vacation home. I will be hiring for more rooms in the future. I will add photos after project is complete. Updated Jan 14, 2020 Verified Jeff J. ***** JoAnne did several projects for us. They were all terrific. I am a big picture guy. I wanted a nice patio. She found the furniture, the plants the lights and put it all together so that it is comfortable, attractive and functional. She gave us choices for all, but recommended the ones that she thought would work best. She was right every time. More importantly, my wife and I had different visions. She negotiated the tightrope perfectly. As they say, “Happy wife, happy life.” My wife is ecstatic. Apr 22, 2019 Lea T. ***** I can't believe how easy it was for Jo Anne to be able to take my style preferences and create a space that was even better than anything that I could envision! She works quickly, engaged us during the entire process and completely transformed our living room, dining room and wine room. We loved her work so much that we've hired her to completely redesign our home in Italy. Apr 22, 2019 Sharon B. ***** I can’t say enough about my experience working with Inspiring Spaces. My husband and I agree on many things. We weren't sure the design of our bedroom would be one of them. He wanted a dark room, the darker the better, a soothing cave where he could easily fall asleep. I was looking for an inviting retreat that went beyond a room where we slept. JoAnne listened to our often-mad ramblings. If there’s such a thing as a design therapist, she’s it. We found her to be talented, professional, and dedicated. She created an elegant, tranquil room for us that we can’t wait to get to every night. We adore our new bedroom. Apr 22, 2019 Nancy C. ***** JoAnne is extremely talented. She worked with me to completely transform my bathroom, within my budget. I had recently gone through a divorce and the bathroom had been used by my ex-husband. I needed something that was completely new, not just a fresh coat of paint or a design update. In our initial consult JoAnne listened and asked questions. I let her know I loved wainscoting and that I needed a bathroom that was entirely opposite from what I had. She immediately understood. Not only did she work with some of my suggestions, but she offered solutions that fit my budget (wainscoting was too expensive, so we went with white subway tiles halfway up the wall—which are fun and beautiful). She took the bland off-white walls to a beautiful rich gray, removed the medicine cabinet/mirror and replaced it with a huge mirror, painting the thick trim white, then added a sparkly light fixture above the mirror. She even sourced the perfect floor tiles from Overstock ($36 total!) in a driftwood gray. I absolutely love the transformation; it truly is my own and reflects my sensibility and aesthetic. Yes, JoAnne worked to make the elements and design beautiful, but what she did also brought an internal shift allowing me to move forward in my life. Thank you, JoAnne! Apr 20, 2019 Nancy N. ***** JoAnne redesigned our living room for us. She quickly drew up some various options and then presented us with her design board. It was a pleasure to work with her in so many ways. She has the creative vision, a positive can-do attitude, open ears, flexibility, and a clear love of interior design! I foresee using her again in the near future!! Apr 15, 2019See more

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.

What’s the difference between an interior designer and an interior decorator?

Interior designers operate more on the architectural side of building projects. In conjunction with architects, they work on the design of a building or home to best suit the needs of the users or residents. Interior designers are generally experienced in construction and understand how architectural planning works, according to NewSchool of Architecture & Design. And some interior designers will perform the duties of an interior decorator.

Interior decorators, on the other hand, work with fabrics, accessories, furniture, art, colors, textures and materials to make the inside look fashionable and pleasant.

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.

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 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.
