A+++. Great designer who works effortlessly to give you want you want and at a reasonable price. She is now a great friend of mine!! She is compassionate about what she does, and excellent to work with. I still have my kitchen under remodel, but in planning my huge project, Julie did all the leg work so I wasn't going crazy to go place to place.

    Alison Alfredson is a delightful person with whom to work. When we bought our 1936 home, we knew we wanted to have the old wallpaper removed and all the interior walls painted. But this was going to be a huge job. Although I had a general sense of what colors I liked, I was not certain about how they would work in the spaces/rooms in this house. I reached out to Alison after finding her on Thumbtack, and she agreed to work with me as a color consultant on this project. Working on a very tight timeline, Alison gave me her undivided attention until all the decisions were made. We went through each room with two huge paint decks and contemplated all the factors that would impact color, mood, and vibe including each room's purpose, furnishings, and levels of natural light. She's a great listener, and she is very knowledgable. She honored my ideas and then offered suggestions until we agreed on a color for each room. Her suggestions were ultimately much better choices than my original ones. I trusted her expertise completely, and it paid off. We love our new home and the colors of the walls in each room. With the new paint, it now feels both modern and classic; it's a perfect balance between the two. I would definitely hire Alison again.

    Shirley was an absolute delight to work with. She is extremely responsive and available, and she is a lot of fun to work with. Most importantly, she was able to take my vision/preferences and integrate her expertise to give me a beautiful design that fit my aesthetic. I highly recommend working with Cyrus Interiors!

    Cori Ann did an excellent job staging my client's home. Their house sold with the first family that walked through because they said it felt like "home." This was definitely due to Cori Ann's beautiful work!

    The most important aspect of a successful finished project is establishing an accurate inventory of necessary functions and details at the initiation of the project. A comprehensive interview of the family focusing on its life style and habits is a crucial first step. I use a detailed questionnaire to assure we have addressed all the unique requirements for each individual client. Before any decisions are made as to what your space will look like, we must be certain that it will work well for you and your family. My most important job at this point is to listen--listen and then listen some more..

This includes paint color selection, material selection, furniture, draperies, accessories, and all other selections pertaining to design in general.

    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.
