I evaluated numerous interior designers before deciding on Magi Designs, and it is with great pleasure that I am writing this testimonial. It is a company run by a highly professional and delightfully personable couple, who complement each other perfectly and are clearly passionate about their chosen career. In charge of all matters design-related, Mariama’s expert eye for style, color, materials and space has proved invaluable in the process of turning our new house into a classy, inviting and treasured home. Magi Designs has not only met my high expectations, but actually exceeded them. I was sold ever since my first consultation with them. A winning attitude and outstanding listening skills were coupled with Mariama’s uncanny ability to quickly identify our (mainly mine) tastes and styles, as well as effortlessly and creatively managing to incorporate existing pieces of furniture into an innovative design and layout. Throughout the process, I was given options, never pressured, merely gently guided in the direction of my desired look. Moreover, even my husband, who was initially opposed to involving professionals, was very pleasantly surprised upon realizing that his apprehension of designers creating an overly pricey space proved to be completely unfounded. In fact, we were both astounded at how very affordable this project turned out to be! This was significantly aided by the trade discounts we benefited from, as well as our team’s highly commendable diligence and efficiency. This project, so close to my heart, was perfectly executed from concept to end product, very timely and within budget. In summary, they have been a veritable joy to work with, and I intend to continue consulting their expertise. I cannot recommend them highly enough: knowledgeable, organized, detail-oriented, very honest, conscientious and truly caring-- to name but some of their qualities. Hiring Magi Designs was among the best decisions I’ve ever made!

Working with Bharti is like exploring your own sense of aestheticism. She is not only the most comfortable interior designer to work with, but a beautiful person at heart to know. She gives out wonderful ideas to make your house appealing to all your senses including your soul. When I moved into my new house, it was overwhelming for me to initiate the process of setting it up. Bharti was my soul saver who came with excellent ideas and helped me fill up my house with class and comfort. Working with her was a joyful journey as her patience and calmness helped my cluttered thoughts come out seamless. I highly recommend working with her, she is the best designer.

When starting our plans for redecorating, it was overwhelming. Then, Sheri to the rescue. Sheri made a Three Phase Plan which included: design for changing out countertops, flooring, fireplace, doors, lighting, etc.; a Resale Concept and an Overall Projects Objectives with suggested time line to help stay focused. From chaos to calm, that is the plan. Thank you Sheri Giancarlo! Kindly, Margaret Erickson

Lynn, the interior designer for LMC Interiors NY, is a professional colleague with whom I've recently had the pleasure working. A very talented interior designer, Lynn has seamlessly and effortlessly incorporated one of my signature home decor candle designs into a current project on which she is working. The flawless juxtaposition of the warm wood cabinetry with the coolness and elegance of the tile work and countertop in the space she designed was impressive! Lynn clearly has a very good eye for detail, and I look forward to seeing more of her projects in the future!

I own several Fitness Clubs which Maureen had designed over the years, so when it came time for me to put an extension on my house I once again referred to Maureen’s expertise. I wanted the existing space and the extension to flow. Maureen came up with a number of great ideas for relocate existing rooms and configuring the rooms in the extension to fit the needs of my family. In the end, because I did not want major construction to disrupt my family, I decided to keep the original flow of the house, with a few minor changes. During the construction Maureen stopped over several times to see how the extension was coming along and to answer a few questions. She also reconfigure the kitchen, select kitchen cabinets, new tile floor, paint colors, wallcovering and some furnishings. I enjoy working with Maureen because she listens and she is easy to communicate with, which makes the process enjoyable with a positive result.

Diana, worked with me in remodeling my bedroom with only a $1000 budget for a radio show! Miraculously, she made it all happen. Her advice, comments and direction for the project were simply invaluable. She is not only a gifted and a superb interior decorator, but a fabulous human being. Diana spend time asking about my needs and likes, and listened and addressed them all. She re-purposed old items and to my amazement made it all blend beautifully in the room the old with the new!! I recommend Diana highly to decorate your home and for any challenging decorating assignment! She is on top of her game- A TEN! Nicky

Our experience with Caryn Paradis was excellent from start to finish. We had an unfinished basement that we wanted to finish and didn't know where to begin. Caryn talked with us in detail about how we wanted to use our basement and then came up with plans that included all of our needs as well as ideas that we hadn't even considered but should have. She was able to design a space that incorporated areas for everyone in our family, including our young son--even a stage that could be pulled apart for use as couches when he becomes a teenager! Because we live in separate states, Caryn was able to do much of the work remotely with minimal visits to our home to take measurements, etc. She had finish samples sent directly to us quickly and walked us through the decision making process. She designed specific requests, such as a fireplace for my husband and a guest room/office area. Caryn paid attention not only to the aesthetics of the job, but also the practicalities, such as outlet placement and HVAC. She also included amenities such as a well-placed dorm fridge which will come in handy when our son is old enough to use the space as a hang-out with friends. All in all, the job was smooth, well-designed and surprisingly painless. Caryn listened to our needs and then exceeded them. We would recommend her without reservation.

It is with great enthusiasm that I write this letter of reference for Helen Grubel, my interior designer. I have known Helen for almost 10 years and she has been fantastic to work with. When we initially met, I was planning a renovation of part of my home. Midway through that project our home was destroyed by a fire and we needed to rebuild it entirely. Helen literally helped with every aspect of the re-design. She was and continues to be a pleasure to work with always strives for perfection. As we were dealing with numerous vendors and tradesman, it was not unusual for something to catch Helen’s eye that was troublesome, even if my husband and I were pleased with the initial result. Helen holds everyone accountable to the highest standard, herself included. She has incredible taste but makes certain to give the client multiple options that reflect their aesthetic preferences. I have the utmost respect for Helen, her integrity and commitment to the design process and her clientele. She is hard-working and always reachable and accountable. On top of that, she actually makes it fun! Elise L. Mamaroneck, NY

I am a fairly picky person. I interviewed 7 different companies/people to do the job I wanted done. I was very pleased with Jenn and her eye for detail. I liked her non traditional approach to interior design. I didn't feel as though I was getting cookie cutter ideas thrown at me as compared to others I spoke to. She took the time to understand my wants and needs and how I lived in order to make the apartment work for me. I hate how some designers want to make something so pretty it's useless to live in it because your afraid it won't look like it just came out of AD. Mind you 1500 sq ft isn't a very big place, but I can now call the upper East side home.. ~SG

About

I am a Connecticut based Interior Designer. I want to transform your home to best fit your needs and lifestyle.

About

I'm responsible for designing spaces inside buildings and I also do select color schemes, window treatments, hardware and lighting fixtures, carpet, artwork, paint, murals and furniture. I work with an architect on layout of rooms.

About

The thing about great design is not about being "the best," it is about being unique. It is about finding what your client likes and putting your own individual twist on it that makes the space stand out to be "special." I love helping clients to make their home or space a place that they love to be and they are proud to show their family and friends. I love creating a space where the client feels comfortable and like there is no better place than home.

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.
