Our project needed an expert and we found one. Laura is very knowledgeable in the design field. She helped us with colors, flooring and furniture. The first phase of our project is almost complete and we are thrilled with the results.

Outsourced Soirée catered for my wedding shower. From the very beginning Veronica and her staff went above and beyond, personalizing not only food choices, but tables linens, decor and overall ambience. The staff was friendly and extremely eager to please- going well beyond their duties. They assisted in set up, break down and clean up of the event. Our home and kitchen were under construction, outsourced soirée didn't miss a beat even in the midst of the chaos! I had an outstanding experience with this company and plan to use them moving forward. I would highly recommend their services!

    I can't say enough great things about Pam! She is an amazingly efficient, organized, knowledgable professional. Beyond that, she is incredibly sensitive to the needs of others and always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty, even on short notice. Her planning and implementing of our surprise retirement affair was perfect. She used her flair for technology and eye for style to create a superb and endearing memory for all of us. She organized the gathering of old photos (some VERY old ones even that required unforeseen extra work) and assembled them individually for each retiree into a personal photo album. She enlisted my husband, Jim's help in his expertise of photography for a staff portrait, even managing to keep that secret from me also. I might add that surprising teachers is no easy task; we have noses for the unexpected, and yet we were all flabbergasted by the scope of the affair and how she did it all so well, behind our backs. From the special staff T-Shirts, to the staff portrait, to the memory albums, to the high school/college picture poster (what a hoot for those of us who look quite different now) and decorations at the after school party at our favorite watering hole, every detail was a loving gesture that made each of us feel special and appreciated. Having once planned a retirement affair many years ago, I know the amount of time, energy and commitment such an event requires, and I wish I could have accomplished half of what Pammy did. Very few people understand the sacrifice to family and personal life that teaching requires, so I am even more in awe of what Pam is capable of doing while still maintaining a happy home and active private life, juggling it all with seamless style, energy, faith, good humor and love. After four years of working with Pam, she is one of my favorite colleagues and one that ranks very high among those I admire. After thirty years in education, I can give no greater praise. Anyone would be very fortunate indeed to have her unique expertise and loving commitment on their team!

    Per my request, kelly worked to use as many of my current furnishings & decor items as possible to do a complete makeover for 2+ rooms. In the end only purchased new cabinet hardware for approx $20 and a new floor lamp for $99. End result looked liked brand new rooms!! I highly recommend Kelly and will definitely be calling on her for my next home makeover!!!

    Choye Services provided her catering service to an exclusive members only event that my team invited guests for a last minute decision on very short notice! Choye Services asked jus a few small questions as to what did I "think" was needed and what was required and then asked if they could "accent" the event based on their expertise and I agreed! Needless to say, the meeting event turned out to be Super-outstanding with NOT only very attractive decor, but with upheld professional services and quality exceeding expectations!!

    Kara listened carefully to our ideas about our decorating project in our living room and sunroom and adding furnishings to several additional rooms. She asked insightful questions so we could clarify our thoughts. She offered creative ideas and promptly researched all aspects of our project. She kept us up to date on plans, expected completion dates and delivery dates for ordered items. She was clear about costs and stayed within budget. If we exceeded our budget, it was because we decided to upgrade to higher quality fabrics, rugs and/or furnishings. Kara was always professional and demonstrated a sincere interest in helping us achieving a beautiful, comfortable environment. When we finished and I had guests, I loved hearing them say “Wow, this is beautiful!” Kara has my highest recommendation for your project

    I have worked with Rosalie for the past almost 10 years at the Cleveland Orchestra Store and the Blossom Bandwagon Gift Shop where she has helped me set up the store displays each month as new products arrive and also do a large display window for me on a regular basis. Her attention to detail is amazing and she has the ability to make aging inventory look great and interesting by constantly changing around our display areas as new products arrive. It is very challenging at times especially when we get closer to the holiday season and there are multiple trees to decorate and we have a set theme for each one. I cannot tell you how many compliments we receive on our lovely displays and her skills at organizing and coordinating each are a true testament to her eye for design and creativity. I cannot say anything negative regarding working with her and would strongly encourage anyone who is looking for a perfectionist to contact her right away. She is amazing!

      I hired Stephanie when we were putting our house on the market. While I think I'm pretty good at decorating, I needed someone to come in a "brush it up" a little. She used mostly items we already had and made our house look outstanding!! We were so pleased with the results that we hired her to help decorate our new house!

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
