I was having a hard time finding someone to build an interior wall to partition off a room in our new home. Bruce responded and immediately told me it wouldn't be a problem. He provided me with a pretty accurate and detailed estimate before we got started and his crew that ended up doing the work were great. They even did quite a few extra things around the house (installing a dishwasher, fixing a broken storm door jamb and a wobbly step) that I really appreciated. I would definitely hire Bruce and Apex Construction again. They were a pleasure to work with and Bruce is definitely a people person :)

Deb is so wonderful to work with. She helped us with our drab living room and turned it into a beautiful and classy room that we just love. She has wonderful ideas and worked with our own specific taste. She helped guide us to make the best decision for the room and for our needs. We are so happy to have worked with Deb! Now we have a living room that has become our favorite part of our home. We will be asking for more of her services and input as we continue to decorate/renovate our home in the future and recommend her to everyone who is looking for an interior decorator.

Angie and her staff are great. She did a fabulous job staging my house and providing nice decor and design to show buyers how their furniture would fit. It was a lot of house to look homey and they accomplished that, and more. All aspects of working with Orchestrated Living Design were a pleasure. And they don’t require a 3 month contract - only 2 months which really fit our parameters. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing staging!

Richard Ward brings a unique set of skills to the interior design world. He is a brilliant landscape painter and has spent many years not only transforming peoples interiors but also working as a display designer, display fabricator, furniture designer, and furniture finisher. He has a keen eye and an ability to listen to the homeowner while still holding strong to his vision. His sense of color is unsurpassed. As an architect, I hired Richard to create a multi paneled landscape mural to conceal an entertainment cabinet over a fireplace. I sent him photographs of a beautiful view of Cape Cod scene that the clients loved and he re-created the scene using some gold leaf and a subtle grid underlay to give the panels the appearance of an antique Japanese screen. It is gorgeous!

I highly recommend Julie as an Interior Designer. She worked collaboratively with me. She is very creative but she also listened to my ideas and input too. Julie came up with ideas and items that I couldn't begin to think of or find. She is also very patient and exacting and looks until we find just the right item. I would hire her again!

Ann & Barrie were AMAZING!!!! Exactly what I was looking for! I hired them for 2 hours to got through my 3800 sq foot house and give paint ideas, decor and what to keep, what to update! We were in the midst of a remodel and needed some design help and direction. Absolutely fantastic, professional advice!! They worked within my budget and gave great inexpensive ideas!! Would use them in a heartbeat again. If you are to remodel and update things on your own, don't make a costly mistake- hire these designers! They give you great timeless, not trendy ideas- and know how to work with existing finishes and woods as well. Yes, they gave great ideas on how to work with my Golden oak in the house! I feel so much more at peace with the direction of the rest of the remodel! Very happy!

Erica listened well and asked good questions to get to a design that is both fabulous and within budget. The finished product reflects us while her influence encouraged some new directions/products we hadn't considered or known about. We'll seek her advice again!

    Nicole is proffessional, efficient, creative and so much fun to work with. She brings a personal and professional attitude into every project and it makes you feel very at ease throughout a process that is typically stressful and full of large decisions. She has a great insight for working with people who have different personalities and design tastes to create a space that is distinctly your own. She never makes you wait and always responds to you in a very timely manner. Communication is on point, and she delivered 100%. Would and will recommend to all of my friends, family and coworkers.

    About

    I am a Minneapolis based professional interior designer. My career has spanned over 20 years in residential, multifamily housing and hospitality design nationally and internationally. The one thing these projects all have in common is the need to deliver a consistent image across a variety of spaces, often requiring a look and feel that bridges cultures and continents; all the while supporting the equally important human and practical requirements of functionality and durability. I believe that your home is a direct reflection of who you are and your personality. I take the time to listen to you and understand your goals, priorities, and expectations. This ensures spaces are just as functional as they are aesthetically beautiful. I will approach working with you in a collaborative fashion, partnering with highly skilled and trustworthy tradesmen and resources throughout the local industry. This ensures an end result we are all equally proud to be associated with. My goal is to give each and every client a home they feel truly comfortable in, and feel proud to share with their family and friends. My Services Include: Space Planning Design and Documentation Furniture Evaluation, Design and Specification Materials and Finishes Evaluation, Research and Specification Product/Millwork Design Project Management Project administration Home Staging Consultation Relocation/Downsizing Consultation

    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.
