In August we moved to a new home in Poway. We love it so much but found ourselves in a furnishing dilemma. None of our old furniture fit into the new house and we just didn't know how to configure the rooms or what style we were going for. We felt like we needed help! We looked up interior designers on Thumbtack and kept going back to Kim Smart of Smart Interiors. Within 20 minutes of Kim walking through our front door we felt like a plan was evolving. Kim Smart has a great eye for color and design. She nailed our style with just a quick walk around our house. She is helping us add to what we have to get a more complete and consistent look. As we look for furniture and decorating items, Kim is great with sending pictures and links of ideas she finds that are perfect for our home. Not only has Kim helped us define our style but she is keeping us focused on our look and color palette. We were stuck...but with Kim’s help and guidance our house looks better than we could have imagined! We also love that she is so flexible. We can use her as much or as little as we need while we are decorating our home. Just have her come give you a consultation and her expertise and passion for design will inspire you!

Thanks Kim for all the help, looking forward for outdoor renovations and design with you.Mar 8, 2017Verified

Q & A
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I just completed an 1,100 square foot bungalow in down town San Diego. The project took 4 years. As the client got money - we worked on projects. This use to be the ugliest house on the block and now it is the jewel of the neighborhood - inside and out. I am proud of this project because it was done on a budget and it has been featured in several magazines and publications. It is a small house, but BIG on style.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?A good decorator can save their client both time and money. I know where to look after all, I'm out there shopping every single day. It's what I do for a living! Decorating a home can be a daunting and time consuming task. That is why I have compiled the best talent in the San Diego area to accommodate your interior design needs, while saving you time and money. I know where to look for the best furnishings and how to negotiate with contractors. I have a team of artisans, craftsman, and subcontractors who can perform tasks from hand crafting custom furnishings to tile installation.
