My wife and I were looking for some decorating ideas when we moved into our condo. Jenny showed us some modern designs that looked like the kind of stuff you see on HGTV. We ended up with getting a very modern look that we both love. Thanks Jenny!

I contacted Zach to help update my living room. I was so pleased with the results that I ended up having him design my entire downstairs living area! Zach was incredibly easy to work with. He had great ideas, and paid attention to my personal style and budget. Zach masterfully managed every step of the design process from creating the initial vision to the final install. If you're looking for an interior decorator, I HIGHLY recommend using Zach.

I hired Jimmie for a paint palette consultation. She was a tremendous help in working with me to choose a color palette that will flow throughout the house. She eased my anxiety and helped me choose colors that I believe will create a warm and welcoming environment in my home. Once the painting project is complete, I will post photos. In the meantime, I've hired her to help me with some interior design work. I will post another review when we complete that project.

We had purchased a large home in Westport and had newborn twins at the same time. Needless to say, we didn't have time to renovate and design an entire home! We were referred to Color Concept Theory by a close friend and hired Jody Fierz to help us design our home. Jody has been extremely helpful and efficient with the whole process. In fact, she completely took the stress away and made it an enjoyable and fun experience. She was always professional, knowledgable and dependable. So much so, that I have since hired her to design my company's office space. We would highly recommend Jody to anyone who is looking for a person with excellent design skills and amazing taste.

Amazing results, positive change and a "loveleigh" experience! She was professional, punctual, open and honest and very good at assessing my needs as a client. When Leigh from Loveleigh Interiors arrived at my home and saw my closet, I was worried that the job would turn her off. But quite to the contrary, she jumped right in with an upbeat but relaxed approach and actually made the process FUN! She advised me along the way, encouraged me to purge items from my closet I no longer wear and gave gentle suggestions for future purchases and strategies of wearing items. Six hours later my closet looks organized, clean and better than I have ever seen it. I am so happy with my experience and now instead of dreading my closet, I love being in it. It brings me joy -- and so did Loveleigh Interiors! Now I'm ready to move onto the platoon. I'll be inviting Leigh back soon! Thanks So Much!

I hired Taylor to help me decorate my new home. I had tried online design services and found that it still required a lot of leg work from me. Taylor was awesome! She came to my home for a consultation and really listened to my personal style. She then provided me with design boards to showcase the ideas she came up with. She ordered everything and then installed it on our scheduled install day. Everything looks perfect! I get compliments on my home decor all the time now. Even from delivery guys lol. I highly recommend Cottonwood Interior Designs.

With creativity and enthusiasm, Kay has guided me through my last four projects. She's handled the design of a new home from the ground floor to completion, the complexities of a substantial downsizing, the extensive renovation of a thirty-four year old vacation cottage, and the recovering of sofas to modernize their look. Each has been an absolute joy and turned out beautifully. Her talent for bath and kitchen design is unparalleled, her taste is exquisite and she's a master at completing projects within budget. She always fulfills her promises, communicates every step of the way, and finishes her work as scheduled. She manages with great ease situations that I find daunting. When it comes to design work, I will always have Kay on my team.

I invited Annette into my home to "spruce" it up for fall. She took what I already had and made it new again. She did a fabulous job and I can't wait to call her for Christmas decorating!

Harmony is an extraordinarily gifted designer in many ways. She listened to my hope for my new home, took it to heart, and delivered it perfectly. I had to travel extensively during this process and she made it all happen. As we know things go wrong with deliveries and vendors -- she fixed every situation.

    Joan provided consulting services on my home remodel - kitchen: picking cabinets, countertops, and backsplash; bathrooms: picking countertops, floor, and designing tile shower. Also assisted with furniture purchases for living room, dining room, and master bedroom. Could not be happier! Everything looks beautiful and coordinates perfectly! Better than I ever could have imagined or put together myself.

    About

    Interior Design is my main service. Interior Painting, Space Planning, Custom Refinishing, and Furniture/ Fixture Selection are most common. I have recently discovered skills in Ceramics and Printmaking, so I will be incorporating those into my services in the future. No matter what service I provide, I deliver excellent customer service. Many businesses lack in that area, but customer satisfaction is a top priority for me. I'm proud to say that I don't provide "cookie cutter services." If I'm designing a space/ piece for you, it will be unique for your space. I do not use the same concept and style in each client's home because each client is different. What works for one may not always work for the next.

    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.
