I married the love of my life this past weekend (09/24/17) at Tamaya. Mark did the decorating of lighted globes and a star linen shape in the ball room. It was beautiful and gave the setting a warm and intimate feeling and experience. Mark did a first class job and stayed until it was perfect. He is such a professional and so easy to work with. It made a stressful week of preparation so easy. I would strongly recommend Mark any time and for any event. Matt

I live in Washington, DC. My goal is to move back to Albuquerque, NM, within the next year. I was impressed by Mrs. Browne's pictorial examples of her works I have had the opportunity to view. I visited Mrs. Browne in May of 2014. We sat down and talked for a lengthy time about what I wanted and suggested alternatives that were not pushed upon me nor demanded of me. There is no question as to my choice of interior designers or who will advise me in making the best decision towards my exterior landscaping, either. She has inspired me tremendously and given me a prospective of what the finished project will be. I really like her suggestions we both agreed upon. I am excited and look forward to working directly with Mrs. Brown in the very near future.

    Sara is very accommodating to my busy schedule. She is very quick to pick up on my decorating tastes and does not waste my time looking at items that would not appeal to me. Once she takes on a project she stays with it and does not get sidetracked. She keeps my interest in focus when dealing with contractors or subcontractors. Best interior decorator I have ever met.

    Removing excess clutter, rearranging furniture within or between rooms, help solve lighting problems, removing furniture to off -site storage, rearranging art and accessories, styling bookshelves, fireplace mantels and display cabinets - painting, cleaning and repair suggestions and help with any other cosmetic changes that are relatively inexpensive but yield significant results.


    I make knitting, crocheting, beading, plastic canvas, gifts of choice, home decor, doll houses, and boys and girls projects.

    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.
