I never thought I could afford an interior decorator. I've moved 4 times and this is the first time I've ever used one. Emilia helped design my living room and her price was quite reasonable. We took our time looking for furniture, color and designs. She was never a pusher and was very patient with me. Most of all she was reliable and very honest. At the end, I feel very comfortable and extremely satisfied with her work. I couldn't ask more from her service. Lots of happy memories to look back......Thank you Emilia!

I hired Jen McNutt-Bloom as the wedding planner for my son's wedding in Eugene this July. His new bride and he live in Hong Kong, so although they were consulted on decisions regarding their wedding, most of the wedding planning fell on my shoulders. I hired Jen last summer after she was highly recommended by the wedding coordinator at Sweet Cheeks Winery, the venue for the wedding. Jen helped me every step of the way, making recommendations for caterers, florists, DJs, photographers, etc. and letting me decide what worked with our budget. She was very generous with her time, communicating with me by phone, email, and in-person meetings, and connecting with the bride and groom by Skype and email. Her knowledge and experience in planning weddings in the Eugene area were invaluable, and her creativity, enthusiasm, and warmth were also greatly appreciated. She also was extremely helpful to me in planning a Welcome Dinner at our home. I highly recommend Jen to anyone looking for a local wedding planner. She's a winner and you can't go wrong!

Mandi is amazing to work with. Always willing to hear our ideas about the project. Very friendly always has a smile. Very understanding. Our project was put on hold for a while and Mandi told us no problem she will keep working with us as soon as we need her back. She is just amazing. I would recommend Mandi and Luma Studio LLC to everyone who needs an interior decorator.

    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.
