I hired SBD Interior and Architectural Design Services to redesign my apartment. Chivonne is very reliable, professional, creative and easy to work with. She was able to understand the vision of how I wanted my home to look and she designed it perfectly. I absolutely love it! It embodies my style but it looks way better than what I could have ever done on our own.

Words cannot begin to describe how happy we are with the talent and pure decorative artistic ability of Mary and Unique Home Staging and Design. Mary came into our house that is for sale and staged the home for us using her own materials (all of our furniture and accessories had been moved out). In a matter of hours, she transformed the rooms into beautifully decorated and accessorized spaces, like something out of a magazine. She focused on every detail, big and small, and her ability to blend the colors of the rooms to the furniture and decorations looked like something out of a magazine. We plan to use Mary's talents in our new home as she has such a true gift of interior decorating and design!

I have worked with Terry Varner since 1999 on more homes than I'd like to admit! She has completed total transformations top to bottom on a condo, a Townhouse, two historic homes in Baltimore City (Homeland) and our small shore home in St. Michaels, MD. She listens to your vision and works within your budget and timeline and makes the magic come to light! From complete kitchen & bath renovations to custom framing in your foyer, Terry brings out the wow factor each and every time no matter how large or small the project is. She is not only an interior decorator but truly acts as a project manager making sure the right people are doing the work and that the job is completed! I recently purchased a condo in Silo Point and can't wait to hear her ideas for house # 6, I wouldn't have it any other way!

It's my pleasure to highly recommend Amy Joy from Amy Joy Room Styling! She's an exceptional interior designer who is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her work. From the moment I met her, I knew our home would turn out beautiful. Amy Joy is amazing and exceeded our expectations! She was initially hired to design two rooms but we were so thrilled with her work, we asked her to finish the rest of the house. Amy Joy created the most beautiful home for our family! We get compliments every time friends or family come over, in great part due to the warm and inviting ambience she created. The exceptional service, attention to detail and product knowledge is an asset to anyone looking for a transformation to their interior space. The caring demeanour and excellent taste that Amy Joy brings to interior design has been a wonderful experience! Again, I highly recommend Amy Joy!... Robbie D

Working with Ali and her team was a very pleasant experience. I had some anxiety about working with an interior designer based on some prior bad experiences. However this experience was quite the opposite; Ali was awesome! She incorporated my vision in the design for the space, remained on budget and used some existing pieces that I couldn't give up. I absolutely love my living room/dinning room combination. I look forward to having her return for an update to my family room.

Our living area was in desperate need of a facelift, the old maroon carpeting and outdated furniture was making the space feel dark and heavy. I contacted Jenifer MacFarland at Royal Jelly Interiors for help. With a keen eye for blending colors, fabrics and textures she has the talent to transform any space. Her vision helped to guide me through all of the decisions, including choosing fabric, furniture, accessories, carpeting and window treatments…things that seemed too overwhelming to me. I now have an inviting space that is beautiful, comfortable, functional and bright and cheery. Thank you Jenifer!!

I wanted to give my house an entirely new look, but one that was comfortable and inviting. Before starting her own interior design company, Kate worked for an architectural firm that also integrated interior design into their work. She had wonderful ideas that captured the feel I wanted to create in my home. She did a lot of the "leg" work at a reasonable price. The colors, fabric, and patterns flowed from room to room.

I hired Linda to help me downsize from a four bedroom, two story home to a two bedroom apartment in a retirement community. It was a huge task. She drew a floorplan of my new home and helped me decide what I could take. It made the process much less stressful. She helped me objectively sort out what was in my house and how to liquidate everything I did not need. I was so happy I hired her as a design consultant when I wanted to purchase new furniture.

Initially, I asked Ana to do window treatments for my bedroom. She was able to find fabric that coordinated beautifully with the color of my bedspread. The details on the window treatments are really extraordinary. Ana also helped me to pick a great color to paint the room after removing 14 year-old wallpaper. The bedroom looks beautiful. Ana also totally transformed my living room. She really listened to the feel that I wanted to create, and respected that throughout the process of choosing furniture styles, fabrics, window treatments, and accent pieces. I felt very comfortable telling her what appealed to me and what didn't. She always kept looking until she found something that I didn't just like, but loved! Ana used things that I already had whenever possible. A wooden screen from the living room is now creatively displayed on a large wall in my foyer. She works very hard to stay within a given budget, and I was never pressured to make a purchase. Ana is extremely professional in all respects. She always made appointments at times that were convenient for me, placed orders as quickly as possible, followed up with the companies with any questions, and kept me informed about deliveries. The highlight was the day all of the furniture was delivered. Ana arranged everything the room, including pictures and other decorative items. The impact of seeing the completed room was amazing! It is even better than I ever imagined it could be. After living with the new room, I decided that I want to make some changes in other areas. Ana has found a chandelier for the foyer and lights for the hallways. She has a great idea for displaying pictures where quilt is now hanging. I've also asked her to start thinking about creating a unique powder room. I know that she will come up with a solution for the small space that will make a great statement. I would highly recommend Ana to anyone looking for a decorator who is personable, professional, and creative.

“I cannot rave enough about Ingrid! She was ASTOUNDING! She made our house practical for our everyday life without sacrificing incredible, jaw-dropping style. We could not be more ecstatic with the results! Our house is everything we have ever wanted and more! I definitely cried happy tears when I saw the end result. Ingrid and her team kept us updated every step of the way and truly listened to our design wants and needs. She completely catered to our style and schedule. She has a gift with interior design and added really cool and chic aspects to our project, making the design unique and special to us. Thanks to her, our home is anything but cookie-cutter! She stayed on top of every aspect of the process. If anything needed to be problem-solved, they were there each step of the way ensuring the install went smoothly. Their top priority was making sure we loved the home and had a stress-free experience. Ingrid is the sweetest, most loving and professional designer out there. Her clients are her passion and she truly cares about your happiness with her designs! You will NOT find anyone better than her!”

Samantha is the best!! She has such a great eye and an ability to take charge and make things happen.

We were never comfortable in our office until Staci came in and re-space planned our layout. We just never realized how we were adapting to our space instead of doing things to make it work for us. Hiring a professional interior designer was the best decision ever! Not only did Staci help us work better in our office, it looks so much better now.

We had a fantastic experience working with Julie and we would highly recommend her! She is a highly professional designer with very vast knowledge of interior design skills, with fresh and innovative ideas. Julie, while holding to her beautiful aesthetics, always had plenty of suggestions and options which allowed us to be part of the process with respect to our budget. We sure saved a lot of time and money and are thrilled with outcome. She is such fun to work with, a beautiful person and professional from start to finish and outcome is beyond our expectations. Look no further.

About

How terrific is this that we have just been featured on HGTV's House Hunters? One of the most important things to do is listen to the client. I will take a client's thoughts and take it to the next level. I love that people are always amazed at the final reveal of their beautiful room. Whether it is a small project like adding some accessories, or a larger project like a whole room makeover, then end result is always a thrill for me and my client. They are happy, happy, happy!

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.
