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.

The question is not "Why would you use Cheryl Draa?" but rather "Why would you NOT use her!?" Easy to work with and really listens to what you're telling her. Not afraid to help you go outside your comfort zone and take some calculated risks which you end up loving even more than the things that are within your comfort zone! Cheryl is like an addiction. Once you start to use her talents, you can't stop until you run out of things for her to decorate. At that point, you have to switch to Christmas decorations (a HUGE benefit that keeps "giving" year after year) or you have to buy a bigger house! I've referred Cheryl to some of my friends and they too have been pleased with the initial results and keep coming back for more. Really, she's like crack....but in a good way! ;) Why waste/spend $50 - $100 on some random "tchotchkes" for your house that will look odd after a few purchases when you can INVEST in your house's aesthetic value and use Cheryl Draa and it will look like a million bucks without spending anything near that?! Give her a budget and she'll make the best use of that budget to make your home look like a desigerner showcase!

Two years ago I was at a decision point of selling my 25 year old home or upgrading it. As the market was soft at that time and I wouldn't have been able to sell without major upgrades anyway, I decided to upgrade. I had about a $45K budget to work with but could not make a decision on what color to repaint the interior and did not know any contractors to do the work. I had met Kay when she owned a decor shop on Hwy 150, so I gave her a call. So glad I did. She helped me find a great painting team who removed all the old wall paper, took the popcorn off the ceilings, and did any excellent job of painting the great neutral colors that Kay helped me select. We also replaced carpet in two bedrooms, installed wood floors in the great room and had the kitchen wood floors refinished. In the guest bedroom we installed a second closet. we also replaced the kitchen counter with granite and added width to make a bar for quick meals. I couldn't have done this much with Kay's help. Definitely recommend.

I have hired Annette Howes several times for decorating help. She shopped with me recently for paint, bedding, window treatments, ane assesories for the two bedrooms I was redoing. She also help with the redecorating of a bathroom. Last Christmas, Annette decorated my 10 foot Christmas tree. I just got all of my boxes out, and she did the rest. I had been very stressed about getting this done in time for a party so she really helped me ENJOY Christmas. Annette wants to listen to your ideas and help you perfect your space.

    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.

    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.
