Angelika came over to better our view in our backyard. We had this horrendous black metal fence that my husband was having nightmares about until he found Angelika. He had this idea of painting the best sceneries of our home country, Lebanon. We are from a village in the north by the name of Douma. She did the sceneries justice!!!! They came out gorgeous she painted our home town Douma the cedars of Lebanon in snow and our home on Douma. It couldn't have been anymore beautiful. The views are now amazing and every morning while drinking coffee we can remember our home town and remember the days spent there! Thank you so much Angelika I didn't think it could be done but the Sawaya family thanks you tremendously for the gorgeous art!

My husband and I recently moved into our house in Torrance, CA.. We hired Debby and her company Creative Spaces Interior Design, Inc. to help us make it a home. She got a feel for our likes and dislikes almost immediately. She has a great insight in planning and design. She valued our thoughts and ideas and closely worked with them. She used and incorporated existing furniture, pictures and family heirlooms that were very important to us. She knows how to combine old styles with new modern styles to achieve the perfect desired effect for that "wow" factor that we were looking for. She is very detailed oriented and quite the perfectionist. She turned our home into something we are extremely proud of. It is warm, comfortable and inviting. We would highly recommend Debby to all of our family and friends and would definitely have her come again for future planning and decorating. Debby was a real pleasure to work with, you will not be disappointed.

We are currently working with Ghiasi Designsand it’s been an amazing experience so far! Arash has done it for over 20 years, so anything from furniture selection and materials selection, he has been on point, not jeopardizing our own style but at the same time elevating us to another level of existence and challenging to truly transform life along with transforming space. Very patient, honest, and fun and easy to work with. People were very impressed with our choice of designer and his selections everywhere I went with him or taking his samples and our house is coming together beautifully. I am managing renovations myself and he has been tremendously helpful, kind and patient but honest when it comes to my questions of choices, placements. Although our contract was for design and furniture, not project management, when he kindly offered one of his subcontractors to me when I needed extensive lighting work in my house , I had a glimpse of the quality and a value that he could bring to the turn key and project managemebt contracts. Even during our initial phone consultation and then first fade to face meeting/2 hrs consultation I was impressed with how intuitive and sensitive Arash is to the needs of the client and also space solutions. We have eventually listened to most of his initial advice and the one I didn’t listen to, I looked back and thought: I should have listened. So if you hire Ghiasi Designs for your project, submit to his creative genius and enjoy the process!

I met with Christine for interior design work and was incredibly impressed. She has a wonderful sense of style and was able to capture my personality perfectly with her design recommendations. She has an attention to detail and was very generous with her time -- coming over multiple times to ensure the items were just right. She acted like it was more than just a "design job" but really important to her that I was pleased with the transformation. She is a wonderful decorator and I highly recommend her!!!! She is also a jack of all trades and even acted as a handy-man to remove chair cushions to take for upholstery and install a new light fixture!

I cannot say enough good things about Guy and his crew. Amazing job from start to finish. Guy took our small idea and turned it into a masterpiece! He was on time and on budget! Two things that I thought were unheard of when it comes to remodeling! Guy was patient and responsive and answered every question without judgement or delay. Construction Owl will most certainly be our first call when we begin our next home remodeling project.

Dar was the best thing that happened to us. Selling a house is a very stressful experience but Dar was a real bright spot. He staged our home beautifully and went above and beyond staging to give us helpful advice. During showings it was common to hear prospective buyers comment on how beautiful our home looked. A couple of them even asked if they could have the furniture. He is a great guy with a lot of talent who does an outstanding job for a very fair price! And he genuinely cared. Highly recommend!!!!

I was looking online at several Staging Companies and Josh gave me the best info and I really liked his responses to my questions. We are in the process of transforming my home from one look to another hopefully in 3-4 weeks. He isn't pushy and he really listens to what I want and need. I can update after our project is done. So far really great!!! Karen

I could not be more delighted to describe my experience with Sound of Home. I hired Victoria to update a small guest cottage in order to rent it out on Airbnb. The budget was tight and the place had not been tended to in many years. Victoria got right to work and turned the place into a bright and beautiful zen studio in less than 10 days! This included replacing the floors, rearranging the furniture, new bed/bedding, mounting the TV to the wall, relocating light fixtures and staging the decor. She even contributed a beautiful seascape that she painted herself! In addition, she brings a lot of experience working with Airbnb and her advice on exactly what guests are looking for was invaluable. I had multiple rentals right away! Not only is Victoria very responsive, thorough and extremely budget-conscious, she is also a lovely person and absolute pleasure to work with. I immediately hired her at the end of this project to help me with my personal home! I simply can't recommend her enough. Thank you Victoria!!!

When I decided to hire someone to decorate my home, it was because I had no time to do it myself and no clue how to. Fortunately I found Victoria. She was able to plan from start to finish what I needed for my home to be my own. From the first day she was efficient, professional, and intuitive. The design for each room captures what I was looking for. Victoria's knowledge and grasp for design has proven to be invaluable. I will undoubtedly utilize her again for future projects and highly recommend anyone looking for an interior designer to do the same.

So happy with my new home! I hired Ranj to help me with the interior design of my home that I recently purchased. Not knowing where to start from and what to pick out. I gave her my wish list and true enough she was very detailed, specific and she delivered results that went beyond my expectations. I am very happy with the results and I’m glad I decided to work with Ranj!

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.

It was such a pleasure working with Laura! I'm a realtor and hired Laura to stage my clients home before we put it on the market. She was able to work with my budget/time frame and did the most amazing job! We got an offer the first day on the market! She is incredibly talented and you will enjoy every minute of the staging process! I will never stage a house without her!

Chloe was absolutely fantastic to work with! She was the first interior designer I've ever worked with and she made the experience so much fun. She has such a keen creative eye and knows all of the "under the radar" shops and markets to pick up eclectic and interesting pieces that are truly special. My husband and I moved into our house about a year ago and I had mixed some of my existing furniture with some new pieces I found on my own. Everything felt really disjointed and awkward. I hired Chloe to help me tie everything together and make it feel like home. She helped me find the most beautiful vintage art that spoke to me (and was VERY reasonably priced) and helped me layer my existing furniture with some new interesting pieces to give our home an overall more lived-in, warm and eclectic vibe. She never pressured me to buy anything out of my price range. She was even able to get shop owners to allow me to bring furniture and artwork home before buying to let it "live in the space" to make absolutely sure that it was something that my husband and I both loved. Can't say enough good things... if you're looking to create a beautiful space to call your own while having so much fun doing it, hire Chloe!

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 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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
