Sergey was very professional and on time which I value very much. He put together a few large IKEA furniture pieces and I was very impressed at how he neatly broke down the countless boxes and was very tidy.

Michael is passionate about reorganization and decorating. He helped me declutter and organize my closets, living room, kitchen as well as my art supplies and studio room. Art can be hard to organize for someone without context but Michael worked with me to understand my needs well and customized every idea. He is a pleasure to work with and took great care and thought in setting up my home as if it were his own.

I met Michael last June while I was at a Spa Resort in St Helena. He was renovating several of the rooms there and I was very impressed with how beautifully he transformed the spaces. We spoke briefly and he gave me his card and explained that he also did staging, interior decorating, flowers and party planning. A few months later when I was planning a 40th birthday party I contacted him to see if he could assist. Initially I was expecting to have him decorate and maybe do some floral arrangements. We met and I explained to him that I wanted to do an open house type event, in my home where guests could drop in throughout the day. I knew I needed to maximize my space and needed a menu and some decorative help. He said he could do it all, and I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive. He said he would get back to me and to expect an email. Within two hours I had an appetizer menu, cocktail recommendations, a detailed spreadsheet with a list of supplies needed, the approximate cost and places I could go to find these items and attached images of decorating/ staging ideas that he thought would be appropriate. I quickly realized that he really knew what he was doing, so I hired him to do it all. Over the next three weeks, he was extremely conscientious in keeping me informed of his progress. The night before the event he requested a six hour window of time to work alone, to get everything set up, staged and decorated. Then he brought me in to walk thru and make sure it was all completed to my satisfaction. I have to say I was very very pleased with his work. He said he would be back the next day to put on the finishing touches. But when the guests started to arrive he began showing them in, and taking their coats. He helped make drinks, maintained the bar and buffet table and ended up staying the whole day. He was marvelous and I had the best time enjoying my own party. It was much more than I expected and I could not have done it without him. In January, I was able to hire Michael again for a company event. Annually we bring in our entire National Sales Team to meet and review our sales, new products and host a special awards dinner. This year it was held at the Clift Hotel and I wanted Michael to do all the staging and set up for it. He worked with the hotel staff and did a beautiful job decorating the entrance with lighted balloons simulating clouds (our latest development) he brought in fresh flower arrangements for the banquet room and did little arrangements with candles for the table centerpieces. He even decorated the outside balcony area and the restrooms. Our CEO and Director of Sales were impressed and asked that I bring Michael back for our Holiday event.

I decided to throw a birthday party for my son a week before he turned ONE and I needed a good planner fast. And Dazzling Streaks the answer to my prayer. From the very first phone conversation, Manya was professional, intuitive and resourceful. And basically made it all happen within a week - beautiful decor, bouncy house, cakes and treats, face painting....she really is a one stop shop. She's connected to affordable vendors and her rates are competitive as well. I would definitely recommend and work with Manya again. ~Tee Oakland

Jennifer is great at what she does and she is an extremely hard worker doing whatever is necessary to get the job done. I had no idea what I was doing, so I left it all to her expertise and was extremely satisfied. I would certainly recommend her to anyone who has the daunting task of unpacking and decorating/moving into a new place! Life saver!

Nicki was always prompt, attentive and full of energy and terrific ideas. Her choices of wall paint colors was also an added and unexpected bonus! It is highly apparent that she is a veteran in the staging industry, and NOT a 'newbie' who chooses the cheap route of pulling strange furnishings out of their friend's homes to use. Nicki was not offended when I requested a stager over a certain age, as I'm decorating in a 50's theme for a real estate listing of mine, and she immediately knew how to proceed. Anyone can come view her work at the upcoming staged home at 1444 Tilia Street in San Mateo, CA, August 10 - September 10, 2016. Jeanette Cook Cook Properties Burlingame Office 650-270-3792

I walked in the office in the beginning of Jan, and my wedding was in Feb. l was super frustrated before I met them, and was seeking help for flower decoration of my ceremony, video and DJ. The team did a wonderful job in making plans for this rush event. The center decoration was a perfect match to what I was looking for. Well done!

Marianne was our florist for our wedding and EVERYTHING was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We got so many compliments with all the services she provided for us. She brought my visions to life!! She's very sweet, professional and responds to any questions or concerns promptly. My mother and I are extremely detail oriented and she did everything she could to make sure my wedding was perfect and beautiful. Marianne listened to all my thoughts and ideas and was able to give feedback and follow with other amazing ideas. I had many headaches and stressful moments planning my wedding, but I never had to stress about my flowers because I trusted her with everything and knew she was going to make things wonderful. I can't thank her enough for all the hard work she did. I recommend Marianne for not only weddings but any occasion that you need a florist!

We hired Limelight to decorate our wedding. They did a great job listening to what we wanted and suggesting ideas based on that. They created two backdrops for us, both of which were beautiful. They were easy to work with and friendly and set-up and broke down everything without any hassle.

The stress I was feeling about moving out of my Hollywood home was overwhelming. I needed someone that was going to hold my hand through the process. After shopping around for the best deal, this was it for me. Having people come into my home is very personal and I also needed confidentiality. Kay and her team were very friendly and accommodating to my needs. Everything ran smoothly and they earned my trust. All my personal belongings were in good hands and it was not stressful at all. When I moved into my new home, they were there to help me unpack and decorate. It was fun working with the same team throughout the entire process. My new home is great thanks to Kay!

If you are looking for a great interior designer to decorate your home /office or any space you've come to the right place. When we first moved to San Francisco, I did not know where to look to decorate our new home. I was so glad to have found Kunjan via Thumbtack. As soon as I met with her, I got a sense of her warm personality, open-mindedness and her professionalism. She immediately knew what I wanted and understood my style concept. She assured us that our home will be a beautiful living space that we will enjoy for many years to come. Kunjan has impeccable taste, an excellent eye for color, and very creative ideas to make any home beautiful and outstanding. Which is exactly what she has done for our home and provided excellent service all the way through. We can't thank her enough! We now have a beautiful, modern, comfortable and elegant home Kunjan's vision is amazing. She took the time to listen to us and help us find just what we wanted and gave her expert opinion on what does and does not work. She included many field trips and was very accommodating of our time and busy work schedule. She helped us pick furniture, art work and accessories. She was also mindful of our budget and timeline we needed to complete the project, which is a wonderful quality to have in your designer. Kunjan is a pleasure to work with and makes the whole experience relaxing and fun. I highly recommend using An Affair with Color for all your design needs.

Angela doesn’t just deliver incredible interiors - she delivers complete peace of mind for even the pickiest of do-it-yourself decorators. Stop agonizing over your home and instead, turn it over into the hands of an exceptionally creative, responsive and budget conscious partner. We worked with Angela for a total refresh of our four-bedroom home and could not be more thrilled with the process and the results. Snag her before the secret is out!

Feifei helped us remodel and decorate our new home in California. Her team was very patient in selecting from flooring to wall finishes, to furniture and artworks that are of good quality and within our budget. I was overseas and cannot be onsite, but she and her team looked after purchasing and installing without us having to worry too much and her team did magic to the spaces. Without question we would definitely work with her again in any future new homes.

At the 11th hour, I decided my mother's home needed some "oomph" prior to the professional photos for its MLS listing, and found Simply Style Interior Decorators in a Google search. I placed the call and Renu called me back quickly. She listed to my desire to be true to the make up of the home, having been built in 1928, and we set up a meeting. She understood quickly, and promised to come back in 2 days with just the right décor to add to our turn of the century home. She did not disappoint. Pictures of the home turned out lovely, and her interior decorating gave just the right amount of warmth and space to the home, staying true to it's vintage and charming personality. I completely recommend Renu and Simply Style Interiors!

Wow! Wow! Wow! Normally interior design comes pretty easy for me...until I had a space I couldn't figure out nor deal with. I contacted Forsyth Home Design and Matt came to the rescue. From the first consult to the finished project he was there. Dealing with contractors, color choices, fabrics, and coming up with built in design options. I highly recommend them for ANY interior project that you might have. Thanks Matt!

Working with Tamara was an excellent decision. She was understanding and knew exactly the look I was trying to achieve. I have tried to do things on my own for a while with not much success, but Tamara managed to do everything that I couldn't, and I can't thank her enough. I have a pretty good handle on decorating and smaller things, but Tamara was able to come in and do a full kitchen and bath remodel, as well as refurnish my living room. She provided floor plans and good options for how to arrange the new pieces. She brought up many points that I wouldn't even think of if I did it myself. One thing I am very particular about is money, and she managed somehow managed to do everything that was needed for the project and stay within the established budget. She was very responsive and I never felt second rate. Overall, Tamara provided everything I envisioned for my project, stayed within budget and was pleasant to work with and I would recommend her to anyone. Hopefully I will have some more projects for her in the future!

If I could leave more stars for CRC Custom Events I would! Christina was absolutely amazing and took all of the stress away from wedding planning so that I could relax throughout the whole process and just enjoy the day. She coordinated with our vendors, made sure our payments were made on time, handpicked our flowers and decorations, created a detailed itinerary, set up and cleaned up our venue, and most importantly made my Pinterest board come to life! Her attention to detail is what impressed me the most. From making sure that we had appetizers on our table so that we didn’t forget to eat, to sending our guests home with flowers at the end of the night, it was the small things that made our wedding so special. She was with us throughout the entire process, from the first consultation to the big day, she communicated with us the entire time and took all of the stress off my plate. I can’t thank her and her team enough. Our DJ mentioned at the end of our reception that he had never seen a wedding that actually stuck to their itinerary and it was all thanks to CRC! I’m truly grateful for their hard work and for making my wedding absolutely perfect.

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.
