Sarinah is a wonder person to have at your party. Yesterday she helped us celebrate my daughter's first birthday. She painted faces and made incredible balloon creations that I have never seen at any party. She was a big hit and I think every parent took a business card for her. I couldn't have been more happier with her. She is great with the kids and the adults. I will use her again if we have another event.

Jessica made our dream wedding come true! She and Dustin are INCREDIBLE, AMAZING AWESOME, THE BEST! We had a tricky wedding venue with three levels that required a lot of perfectly timed coordination, schlepping and decorating. It was a TON of work. Jessica pulled it off beautifully -- and all the while with a gorgeous smile. She's SUPER organized and was able to wrangle all our vendors and pull everything off with what seemed like magic. I cannot say enough good things!! We might have another wedding next year...just so we can work with Jessica and Dusty again. It was truly a beautiful wedding...the best day of our lives and we couldn't have done it without them!!

Debby and Creative Spaces was absolutely wonderful, creative, and completely turned our home's sore spots into wonderful highlights. We truly appreciated her flexibility and helpfulness. We will definitely hire Debby again for any new projects, and highly recommend her to anyone. She designed a wonderful new play space for my children and they finally have their own space to play in and have fun. The new patio she designed is perfect! It's now the perfect outdoor lounging spot for my family. We just had a party and our guests loved being out there. Debby is fantastic and highly recommend her!

Mari Deno was absolutely amazing! I knew from the moment I met Mari that she was perfect to plan our event. I could tell she had a genuine passion and idealistic approach when it came to event planning. Her professionalism, patience and confidence put us right at ease and I felt comfortable letting her take control. Mari's attention to detail and organizational skills were outstanding. She made our World theme event an absolute success from beginning to end. Her creative decor, colorful displays and the most exquisite food displays were visually a feast for the eyes. Mari is budget conscious and offers very reasonable rates. She made our event enjoyable, stress free and easy. I highly recommend Mari for her professionalism, courtesy and her ability to understand your vision and follow through. I look forward to working with Mari with other future events.

LexiLou Events is a top notch special event company. They are very professional and were attentive to every detail. From the planning, to the final day, they made us feel special. Our wedding reception was truly magical. So much so that guests felt they were in "Miami". The draping was beautiful and flowed in the wind. Lighting was truly amazing. Decorations were magical. They will forever be our company to contract with for our next event. This company is worth every dollar. You will not be disappointed when you hire them. Alexia & Louis, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. <3

Words cannot suffice in terms of how Dar has truly blessed our family! I interviewed at least 5 interior designers and Dar’s level of experience, attention to detail, and referrals far exceeded anyone else. I greeted him with a hug when I first saw him because he has this joyful magnetic glow that makes you feel like he is a really good friend. Dar is very punctual; he shows up exactly at the time he gives you and he does not rush you. He is knowledgeable, very attentive, and incredibly patient (we would sometimes have multiple hour meetings). He worked around our schedule with our little ones and never complained about the long hours he put in or how meticulous we were in the designing phase. We enjoyed working with Dar so much that we hired him to stage our house, which put our house over the top in a competitive market. I cannot wait to bring him on board to give our new home the “Dar touch”!

We had a great experience working with Sandi! Our outdated family room and eating area needed some change, but we didn't know where to start. Sandi was able to transform the room into a modern space that's become our favorite place in the house! She was easy to work with and after the initial design consultation provided suggestions for specific items we wanted to purchase and created mood boards and 3D pictures so we could see what the room would look like. She has a great eye for design and provided advice on color selection, decor items, and furniture placement while making sure the room was family-friendly and would grow with us through the years. Sandi is warm, thoughtful, professional and makes the design and remodel process smooth and enjoyable. She was considerate of our budget, schedule and was easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend Sandi Kaneko Interiors!

I hired Karina to make flower arrangement for a party at my house and I was extremely happy with her work. Besides coming up with gorgeous arrangements, she enhanced them with beautiful vases and worked with the caterer to provide him with flowers for food decorations. I loved that Karina is absolutely honest and very easy to work with. I gave her my budget and she maximized it to the absolute, providing me with the best result possible. I have recommended Karina to my friends and will do it again without any hesitation. Excellent work ethics, exquisite work, remarkable customer service!

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.

Devlyn is absolutely amazing!! I first met her when she did an in home consult helping me choose paint colors for my new condo. She is very patient and attentive to achieve your desired look. It turned out great and was exactky what I was looking for! She slowly edged me out of my comfort zone by showing me how to mix the dark colors I love with other brighter colors and still get my desired look. I actually look for bright colors now! Devlyn has remained a very dear E-friend since that time even by chance finding my new first home!! Devlyn is beyond outstanding! I would recommend her without any reservation.

We are having a backyard wedding this weekend and needed a spa and garage door concealed with drapery. The owner of Infuse Designs, Luis, came over last night and put up the pipe and drapes and did the lighting and it looks AMAZING. I was worried about it and he far exceeded my expectations. Not only does he do fantastic work but he's just a really nice person. Highly recommend him for wedding drapery and lighting.

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.
