I can't say enough good things about the two of them -- personable, accommodating and reasonable with pricing. I've worked with them on 4 rooms so far and have never been disappointed. They truly are design experts and tailor their decorating to the customer's style. They are respectful of the client's time and budgetary needs. People look at my rooms and say they belong in a magazine. I give them the highest recommendation possible. If you want a room that looks like it belongs on a TV show, then hire them!!!!

Slavica was amazing to work with and I would highly recommend her for your interior design needs. She has excellent taste and her vision is superb! She helped us to transform our living room into a family friendly den and I couldn't be happier with her ideas and suggestions. She gave several options for price points and really incorporated my needs into the design. She is friendly and easy to work with. Looking forward to working with her again in the future!

Arqavan did a great job on coordinating all aspects of Persian Community New Year Event at The University of Akron from table setting decoration to activity and catering arrangement. She's a fabulous creative designer who has such a good taste in picking the right objects with the right color in her design even with a limited budget. She's really responsible and reliable in her career as an event planner. Being passionate about what she is doing, Arqavan is a great coordinator who has wonderful talents as well.

Kristi of Frederick Sterling Interiors did a great job on my projects. She had some good ideas to brighten up my living room and office and stayed within my budget to boot!! As a male homeowner, I was happy that the rooms didn't look too feminine but they definitely looked cozy, warm and professionally done. I would recommend her if you are looking for help on any interior decorating projects.

    I was thrilled with the design services of Colleen Youngren. She was insightful and imaginative. I have never worked with an interior designer before and was a bit nervous about the process; but Ms. Youngren immediately set me at ease with her charming personality and through knowledge of design. She was helpful but not pushy, and I enjoyed her visits. She listened to my ideas and incorporated them into her suggestions so I really felt involved in the process. I look forward to working with her in the future.

    Global Interiors was great. I had my kitchen and two baths completely remodeled. They showed up to the job when they said they would and worked long hours every day until the job was complete (even on a Saturday). They also cleaned up every day before they left. Overall, the price was reasonable and the value was excellent. I would recommend Global Interiors to any of my family or friends.

    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.
