Dawn has been wonderful to work with and she definitely has a vision. I do not have the decorating talent and she has been able to open my eyes to new ideas and thoughts that I would have never been able to think about.

    Amanda helped me plan and organize everything on my wedding day. Leading up to the wedding, we would meet and go over planning and since I did a lot of DIY decorations she gave me tips and advice on how to go about things. Including things I hadn't thought of. I honestly thought I could handle things myself because I am a big "planner person" I had everything set leading up to the day. However, things I couldn't account for came up, like completely forgetting to get the communion cups. Amanda was right there to reassure me not to worry about it, and that she would take care of it, so I could focus on other things, and sure enough she came through like she always does! The day of the ceremony, Amanda was there the whole way, reassurimg me everything was going to go well, and taking care of the things that came up the day of. I was able to focus on getting ready and trust her to take care of everything! She is attentive, creative and thinks of every little detail, as well as a take charge person who will take your ideas and run with it. And no matter what the circumstances, she always remains calm and has a soft and calming effect on those around her. Which on a nervous and stressful wedding day, while trying to get hair and makeup done, having something like a spelling error on a chalk board sign, or temporarily misplaced rings, her calming personality was a HUGE help! I highly recommend Amanda's services, you will not be the least bit disappointed!

    Working with Audra and Dream Big Events was an amazing experience. Audra helped plan and put on my baby shower. I was very busy with work and pregnancy and she helped the planning be stress free and efficient. She took all my wants into account and when I didn’t know what I wanted she made great suggestions to choose from. My shower was more then I could have hoped and best of all I didn’t have to worry about a thing!! The decorations where fun and thoughtful, the food was perfect, and all my guests had an amazing time. Audra is full of positive energy and it is infectious.

    Working with Shandra Pettit was one of the best decisions we have ever made. We purchased a home with lovely traditional features that we wanted to highlight, but needed help to accomplish this within our limited budget. Shandra walked through our house and helped us use the pieces of furniture we owned while incorporating new pieces to complete the rooms. She really listened to us and customized the decorating to our personalities. Shandra’s experience and creativity saved me countless hours and thousands of dollars. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

    Dwell designed our childcare center's classroom area and we couldn't be more excited. They helped us with everything from flooring and paint color to each individual decoration item. We couldn't be more proud to show this off.

    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.
