My fiancé and I are very satisfied with the interior design help we received from 13 Design Lane Interiors. Laura Sabo was a pleasure to work with. She listened and was very prompt in responding to everything. Our living room and dining room were drab and extremely outdated spaces that we were not proud of. As a couple, we just couldn't seem to put our heads together to re-do the living room on our own, so we sought outside help from a professional. After researching online for a professional and interviewing several for the job, we hired Laura Sabo with 13 Design Lane Interiors. Laura helped us with visioning, color scheme, a layout, and the purchasing of all the furniture. She did a ton of research to help us find what we were wanting to see in our living room and dining room. The challenge here for us (on our own/without help)was that this was a big rectangular room which was too challenging for us to blend and balance within the framework of a tradition design theme. With Laura's aid, we were able to accomplish that by creating a well balanced space with coordinating colors, shapes, a focal points. With her help, we purchased an antique red entertainment center, an off-white 3 person sofa, over stuffed chair with ottoman, two swivel chairs, and a coffee table and adorable round side pedestal table. One of our main objectives was to keep our expensive area rug, so Laura helped us to build from it. Now the living room is gorgeous! We also purchased a new area rug for the dining room and chandelier for over the dining room table. The entire rectangular room comprising the living room and dining room is now in harmony. We are looking forward to hosting our second guest event, Thanksgiving, in our home that we are proud of. Laura really helped us stay motivated and on track. My fiancé and I were just not equipped to do that on our own. I highly recommend the services of Laura Sabo with 13 Design Lane Interiors. She is affordable and is careful with her customer's budget constraints. If you want somebody that will pay attention to what you want, hire Laura! Sincerely, Laura

Christina has helped us on two different occasions. She helped us design our basement remodel as well as an outdoor fire pit area. Both times she listened to our ideas/desires and created a few different designs to give us multiple ideas. She's great to work with and will certainly be a part of any future home projects!

Outstanding !! We really needed to have the Occupancy of our building changed, along with full set of plans. Zach understood what the building department needed and helped us figure out what needed to happen to submit our plans. He is very easy to work with and affordable. We were working with a real person not a robot. We really needed some one to help us get this project moving forward. He was extremely prompt with all changes needed to make our project move forward. Further, I have need been thinking of a ADU at my home. Zach is defiantly our Architect for any job that needs plans, and advice on what is needed to complete them and SUBMIT !! We need more real hands on, get the job done, at a fair price, people like Zach.

    Estelaz Interior Designed redecorated my kitchen, living and dining room. I consider myself skeptical and hard to please as I’m myself a perfectionist however, after sitting with her for the first 15 minutes I recognized she knew what she was doing to the point that I trusted her enough to pick the curtains for the dining room! It seemed she understood exactly what we liked! Gentle, not pushy at all and moreover, very patient and calm to deal with my wife and I who are very hard to arrive to a middle point without fussing when it’s about moving things around the house. Ivonne did not give up on us, but rather knew how to use and combine our different approaches, rapidly grasping on our family style and functionality needs to create the perfect climate for our home. One of her first questions was, “how do you want to feel when you step in to the kitchen”, I never thought feelings would have such an important account in decoration. Very professional, great touch and impeccable finish. I only have good things to say about Estelaz Interior Design work.

    I got exactly what I asked for. What I thought was a broken chair turned out to only needing a new seat cushion. The chair I got back will last me for many years to come Jennifer and her employee Juan were very easy to work with and very pleasant to talk to. I would recommend her to everyone.

      Working with Jay was an excellent experience, from start to finish. Jay called us to discuss what we liked and didn't like in terms of design before we even moved to Portland, so he was able to get right on the project as soon as we arrived. Once he knew our likes and dislikes, he came to view and measure the space he had to work with. Then he toured and helped us shop at many stores that were within our budget, and helped design and put together a wonderful apartment! His eye for design, detail, texture, and color is amazing! Using our feedback and input, he was able to integrate furniture or decorative items, while maintaining a high level of taste as well as function. The entire space is thoughtfully put together, comfortable, and custom. Our favorite piece was one he worked on himself- a 1950s wooden desk he transformed into a gorgeous mid-century modern entertainment center. We now have a one-of-a-kind piece that was made with our budget in mind. Jay's enthusiasm for his work was evident in his commitment to the project. His communication was always thorough and reliable. We really appreciated that he respected our budget and never pushed for items that didn't make sense in our apartment. We weren't sure what to expect from working with an interior designer, but Jay made the experience interesting and fun! We could not have been happier with the entire process, thanks to Jetset Designs.

      About

      I love helping clients, not only achieve their goal, but if the dream or ideas change, I can also adapt to the changes and find something that inspires the client to keep moving forward and understand that design is always about the person and will continue to evolve. Your dream design can showcase the growth within you as an individual. I can assure you I enjoy working with people, but the best part of what I do, is how we can take just a few simple ideas, and help it to come alive.

      About

      It's the wow factor, especially in re-design projects. We add the pizzazz, the snap, the pop, the interest that goes beyond the typical "nice" home. We create custom pieces too - each home can have stand-out, extra special, and neat items so the owner can say, "Nope, no one else has this!" We work with the client to see if they have an idea that we can help them bring into existance. Creating an environment that your clients will love to come home to...to make them want to be home and invite others to visit...to show them little design ideas that they can implement on their own...and where to get great prices, and after all - to make sure America hangs its art at the right height (hee hee). We love to hae a fun time with our clients and typically we feel like friends by the time we're done...until next time!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

       

      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 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.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
