"Cricket Burns has over 25 years of experience providing services to a wide variety of clients in New York City, The Hamptons, and the Metro New York area. Her work has been published countess times in HC&G, NYC&G, Beach, Hamptons, Avenue and Quest. She's known: As a talented style maven who understands the clients needs.... easy to work with....provides amazing work quickly... she's just gets the job done! One big difference to Cricket’s service is that her decorating business is uniquely supported by her online consignment business. Cricket has over 20,000 sq ft of amazing home furnishings she personally curated. She curates from a list of “who’s who” of stylish homes in the New York area. She sells on Cricketscrush.com but mostly uses the inventory for her decorating, jushing and staging projects. Jushing is a term she coined for her take on refreshing a home. She comes to your home with a truck load of her treasures to re-style your home's rooms in a day. Jushing is an amazing option for those who have great furnishings but need a style re-refresh. If you’d like to see Cricket in action, watch her web series The Jusher on cricketscrush.com. Past clients include: • Cricket jushed up a large family home on the grounds of Westchester Country Club. She mixed Cricket Crush's inventory with the family’s decor. They were amazed with the transformation which occurred almost overnight! • A recently single woman needed Cricket to design her 3 bedroom apartment in New York City. She cried with joy when she came home from work to see what Cricket had done to her apartment in just a matters of hours. • Grandparents gifted Cricket services for their grand daughter’s first apartment in New York City. Cricket’s flare with pop art and contemporary chic hit the sweet spot with the gen-Xer. A Soho building developer hired Cricket to stage 6 model apartments in their newly renovated rental apartment building. The challenge was showing how tiny living can be super cool. They loved way the small apartments scaled up with Crickets decor. Cricket turned a New York City designer's office back into a Upper East Side one bedroom contemporary dream. The apartment went into contract within 24 hours of Cricket finishing the job. A Bronxville family needed new rooms to be designed by Cricket after a recent renovation. Cricket created a home office for the working mom that has become the owners favorite getaway space. Several builders in The Hamptons have used Cricket's staging services for newly completed estates in Southampton, Bridgehampton and Watermill. The "working mom home office" is at the top of list of rooms builders want Cricket to create. Notable work: Designer at Hamptons Design Showhouse - 2017, 2016, 2015 - Cover NYC&G / HC&G - December 2016. Cover NYC&G - July 2014 Beach - Story - August 2016 Media: Segment NYC&G Online web TV - 2018 Segment NBC’s Open House TV with Sara Gore - 2018 The Jusher & other Crickets Crush webisodes - 30 Episodes Evine Home Shopping Network - Crickets Crush Diamonds - 4 hours - 2016 I love when clients are brought to tears when they see my work. Since I can work very fast using my existing inventory, I don't get into "delays" associated with custom made decors. Thus, the relationship I have with my clients is always very very good. Not only do I get jazzed about hitting the desired aesthetic, I love when the project is done quickly. The speed at which I can transform a home really astonishes all of my clients. This job gives me a sense of great satisfaction when I know the owners finally have a home to enjoy!"

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.

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.

 

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.

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 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.
