My wife and I used Lisa Demberg of Style Reboot to redecorate a 2 year old home we purchased. Although the house was basically brand new, much of the interior, including yellow walls throughout the house, were not our style. Lisa has a talent for assisting her clients with choosing color palettes, using their existing home furnishings, and finding a few new purchases to tie the whole look together. Lisa is also well connected to other interior design specialists within our community and she coordinated a kitchen cabinet redesign for us with a local woodworker whom we would never have discovered without her help! Lisa outlined a design plan and a timeline to prioritize projects and stayed within or under budget for all of our design needs. My wife and I highly recommend Style Reboot for any of your decorating needs - no project is too big or too small for Lisa to tackle!

I have had the pleasure to work w Dorothy for over a year now. I had just moved to Boulder & was struggling to get things done around my new home as a newly single mother of 2 young children. Dorothy had worked w the previous owner of my house & approached me. She is extremely pleasant & a joy to work with. She has an eye for color, furniture placement & art work and garden design. I was struck w what to do with changing my interior home colors as well as the very boring garden. She is full of excellent ideas & picked up my sense of style very easily. She didn't try to push her own ideas on me, which I have found happens w some other consultants. I highly recommend Dorothy for any of your home & garden design needs. If it is just to up date & perk things up or to totally change your design concept, I believe that she has the experience & creativity to satisfy a variety of needs. Dorothy is one of those rare individuals who just has a natural gift for color, art work & design. She was a pleasure to work with. It was obvious to me that she has a zest for life & loves what she does.

Katie Albee of Sensing Self Designs is tremendously talented, professional, intuitive, kind, and delivers far more than one would expect. Initially, I hired Katie to assess and organize my home office. This office is in the front room of my house and is very awkward. Katie took the time to learn about my business, my business goals, and the day to day of my life. From this point she developed and executed a plan to create a pleasant, professional, and efficient space. This included organizing, designing, installing desks, shelves, hooks, and all kinds of nice personal touches. Her suggestions also prompted us to take a nice family photo and we are grateful to have those memories as well. After the home office, we moved into the kitchen where Katie transformed an uninspired and lackluster tract home kitchen to a sleek and modern look. I feel so much better in my home and look forward to working with Katie on many future projects. Her intuition, design skills, and the ability to do the projects (from painting to installing things to sink installation) makes for a really convenient and full-service process. I highly recommend Katie Albee of Sensing Self Designs. Your space will thank you and it will increase your overall happiness!

I have worked with Deborah with two project this year. First she helped me stage my home for me to sell it. She did it in a way that I would've never thought of.

I am now working on updating my current home her knowledge of building trade and interior design experience has been a great help. The work concerns recommendations for materials, color, lighting, flooring etc. I highly recommend Deborah Rae for both home staging and home design.

Alex is an amazing decorator! I was lost about how to put my living room together to make a cohesive, inviting feel. Alex was so creative and conscious about my budget. She was able to repurpose some of my existing items and helped to order some new furnishings that did not break the bank. I have received a lot of compliments and am so happy with my room. I would recommended Alex Ebner Interiors to anyone!

After recently moving into a new home, I hired Kathy for living room design and for a paint color consult. Kathy is amazing. She is very warm and personable, and she took the time to get to know me and understand my style. I was new to the area, and Kathy drove me to several design centers to shop for furnishings. She had creative ideas to make my living area functional and comfortable. I am so happy I used Kathy’s services and I highly recommend her.

Ana designed the whole interior of my apartment. She was great! She had plenty of references of different styles and is not scared of getting her hands dirty. She placed all the shelves on the wall on her own!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does it mean to stage a home?

Home staging is the real estate strategy of decorating your home to be as marketable as possible to your target demographic. Home staging is done by interior decorators and other design pros hired by the homeowner or realtor, prior to putting a house on the market. Think of it as setting the stage for potential buyers to fall more easily in love with their future homes — and to spend top dollar to get them. It’s likely to be worth the investment: The Real Estate Staging Association reports that staged homes spend 90 percent less time on the market than those that are not staged. Home stagers can also be hired even if you’re not going anywhere. Stagers can consult on new layouts for your current home, much like an interior decorator.

Home staging can take place while you still occupy the house you plan to sell, or when the home is vacant. For an occupied home, the home stager will clear out clutter, rearrange furniture, and bring in decor and furniture as needed to create the perfect environment. Usually an occupied home has far too much of the current owner’s personality stamped on it, which makes it hard for prospective buyers to envision themselves living there. A home stager should neutralize and beautify the space. In vacant homes, a home stager will bring in furniture and decor so that potential buyers don’t walk into an empty house, which can be equally hard to imagine living in as a cluttered, occupied home.

 

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 much does it cost to stage a home for sale?

Nationally, the price for home staging ranges between $750 and $1,500. The price varies based on how many rooms in the house need staging, whether furniture and decor are needed or the stager can work with the client’s belongings, whether the home is occupied or vacant, and the sale price of the home. Occupied homes typically cost less to stage as they are already furnished, and can require less time and resources than staging an empty house. The main tasks when staging an occupied home are rearranging and decluttering. Staging an empty house can be more expensive as furniture and decor need to be trucked in, requiring transportation, physical labor and potential rental fees. Here are some examples of average home staging costs:

  • 2-hour consultation: $200, includes DIY tips and guidance.
  • 1- to 2-hour consultation and design session: $250, including written report.
    • Additional design consulting: $65 per hour.
  • 8 hours of staging an occupied home: $800.
    • Hands-on staging involving moving furniture, hanging and moving art, and decluttering.
  • Starting price for staging a vacant home could be $2,200.
  • A home stager may charge 1 percent of the home’s selling price.

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.
