I hired Becky at Wysteria Design to help me in the design of my new eye care facility, Evision Eyecare. Becky was extremely helpful and went above and beyond throughout the entire project from start to finish. The office turned out amazing. I get compliments on the look of the office all the time. I would highly recommend Becky and Wysteria Design for any of your upcoming projects. I am adding additional space to my facility in the coming months and have already contacted Becky to help with the design of the new space.

Emily has helped us over the last two years with major renovation projects in our oceanfront home in Kennebunkport, Maine. She helped revise the color palette throughout the house, furnishings for the living room and outdoor seating areas and structural layout and design for the master suite and bathrooms. Emily is a delight to work with and has a wonderful eye for color and design. She understood that we wanted a fresh look to our house but wanted to maintain a family friendly feel on a budget. We are so happy with the work she did, I just wish we could spend more time at our house. I highly recommend her!

Professional and warm from the first hello, I was impressed with how comfortable I immediately felt with Bunny and Monique-I was nervous about the process but that left immediately as they started to field questions and develop plans and ideas. They were great listeners and wanted input-very clear that it was going to be MY house so they wanted to give me what I wanted. They were on time, meticulous with detail, and easy to accommodate my schedule and time-frame with my contractor. Also, they are both warm and kind women, both with a great sense of humor and and enthusiasm that instills confidence. I already need to call them again.....they'll never see the back of me! And I am looking forward to working with both again soon.

Clients help me fill out a shirt survey to concretize their wants and needs. A realistic budget is then discussed and then I can go to work on their behalf creating a warm and personal interior that is livable.

What I do: I balance, organize, and utilize the area and its contents in a functional way that reflects that look you always had in mind. I work quickly, efficiently and collaboratively. I incorporate functionality and your personal taste to your space (room, office, apartment, etc.) using the things you already owned. I provide those simple touches at a minimal cost. These are not limited to candles/wall decorations and lighting adjustments (adding a lamp or changing a light switch cover, nothing major but can make a significant difference). Let me break it down. Here's how we deal with a space. * What should it be? You tell me. * What's already there? You show me. * What does it need? After evaluation, I bring what I need to make it work * Where does everything live? Put it all back together. * Bippity Boppity Boop! You are left with a functional and purposeful space that you can actually use and enjoy with ease. We've all moved. We've all redecorated. We've all lived differently. We are all inclusive, which means I hear where you're coming from. So, let me take a look, lend a hand, and give you a head start so you can start crossing off that honey-do list for good.

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.
