Richard helped me design and remodel some features of my home before selling. Richard has a great eye for design and is able to construct as well. Richard and his team poured a new (black) concrete driveway, built me a new lateral cedar stained fence and painted the exterior of my home navy blue. This lead to a quick sale above asking, Thanks!

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

Dear Fellow Home Owners and/or Home Renovators - without exaggeration, I cannot say enough *glowing* things about working with Rachelle, who founded and runs Goodfriend Color Design. She is incredible. First, she knows her stuff ... backwards, forwards, inside out, upside down ... and she is super creative. She sees possibilities and color combinations that others don't. Second, she is prompt, responsive, responsible and generous in every way. Third, she is a true pleasure with whom to work ... she is warm, kind, funny, and understands how challenging it can be to find the right color and the right feel for a room (and a home!). I just finished having my whole home painted ... and I was on the verge of making a pretty colossal mistake in my largest room (I picked an almost-disastrous color without Rachelle's guidance ...). Rachelle patiently and gently tried to talk me out of the color; I resisted ... When she arrived to take a look, she had one more color for me to try ... and she literally saved the day. The new color was gorgeous ... and every single day I thank my lucky starts Rachelle was on my side. Without her, I'd have been very disappoint with my choice ... and we all know how frustrating (and what a bummer it is!) to feel that disappointment. I share this story because that is how Rachelle treats you - she cares. She invests in you and your home and your vision and your hopes. She reassures you ... and most of all she is honest. She won't tell you what you want to hear; she'll tell you what you need to know. She is, true to her last name, a good friend. I've told all my friends and family about Rachelle (and everyone just loves the colors she recommended!). In my opinion, everyone should hire her! Thank you, Rachelle. For everything. My whole house thanks you too!

I hired them to lay the engineered bamboo floor in my condo. They did exactly what promised and in the time they originally specified. I have been doing remidelling and construction of my rentals and my resident for the last 10 years and very much familiar with the business. Out if many contractors or handymen i met Jason and Regina are the outstanding team. They work fast, they are very proactive and attentive to details. And their price was reasonable. What is the most important for me is that they do listen to my suggestions - not like many macho style contractors:). The floor work looks absolutely great and i am very happy. So that i would like to hire them for other work on my rental property.

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!

Maria helped us decorate our office suite in San Francisco. After getting general suggestions of what we wanted to do she presented several unique and trendy ideas for our space. She was friendly and professional throughout the entire process. I really liked how she was able to find interesting pieces for our office and still remain within our budget. If we move to another office space I would definitely use her services again.

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!

We hired Fay and her team to work on our mountain hotel lobby renovation and club house. We were truly impressed by the her team's creative thoughts and efficiency. We hired an architect before them but ISO ideas produces much better quality work and with fast turn around. They were very versatile to address our requests and very friendly professionals to work with. I highly recommend to other business and home owners.

David came out promptly to take measurements and start the work even though I had been delayed on following up after his initial proposal. Very efficient and thorough with explaining how everything works and answering all my questions as a homeowner looking to do some updates and design/remodel in our home. He is certainly worth the investment and I am very satisfied with the as-is renderings we have started with and I look forward to working with him to finalize the design ideas on the project. Thanks again David!

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!

Although the first staging looked beautiful, and I received lots of great comments from people coming through on an open house, our first sale fell through and we had to put house back on the market. Marina was able to get home restaged the next day! Both times we received multiple offers above asking price and house was pending within a couple of days! Highly recommend!!

Cara did great work in our first session together and charged a very reasonable rate. She arrived early, walked through my home to get an understanding of my biggest pain points, and then got to work helping me organize. She also left me with next steps for me to continue on my own and recommendations for organizing containers that would fit my space.

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.
