When I hired Sharon Hocking to come in and do a complete Interior Design of our Living and Dinning Rooms I had no idea just how wonderful this experience would be. Sharon was excellent to work with and listened to all of my concerns, ideas and suggestions. She was very communicative and prompt when we would set up meetings. Her attention to detail is beyond anything else I could have done on my own. Because I still work full time Sharon was able to do all of the leg work and then some. The next time I get ready to do some more decorating in my home Sharon will be the first and only Interior Designer that I will hire.

John Rank helped with remodeling our basement. It was a major job that included changing a large crawl space into a living room. It took about 12 weeks to complete. John is great to work with. He is very organized and keeps everything running smoothly. He is very good at keeping engineers. individual contractors and inspectors coming/going on schedule. He kept us informed of any issues that came up. The quality of work is great - we are so happy with the finished area, especially the built in cabinetry that John did himself. The only thing that could have been better is to have more time to order specific finishes and to be more involved in the design of the entertainment center.

Jen has done window treatments like roman shade, floor to ceiling curtains, and upholstery for me. Eveytime I'm amazed! Her work is so beautiful, exactly what we discussed, and beyond your run of the mill blinds. Jen is truly magical with fabric! Jen is very professional from doing measurements, giving guidance with fabric/dimensions decisions, to the final product.

Starting out with the basics they showed up on time, did what I asked them and cleaned up afterwards. These are important aspects of a job that makes it much more pleasant. In addition, I needed them to build a cat ramp and they did a great job at designing and building a sturdy ramp that should last for years. I was happy with their work and I would recommend them.

I feel so fortunate to work with Tamauflage for my design and plant curation needs. Her attention to detail, space, aesthetics, texture, and my personality has made my home feel more like the home I've always dreamed of living in. There's no way I could have created such an inviting space on my own. At this point, I share an idea with her and then give her total creative license to implement the design. She asks great clarifying questions along the way, but ultimately, I trust her recommendations - she always come through. Five stars.

Marlene has done multiple residential jobs for my family, and I also used her for the interior design scheme of a commercial office complex that I manage. She always impresses me by coming up with a solution that is not only beautiful but appropriate to the application. Marlene is a real talent, a genuine artist and a great person to work with. I recommend her highly.

Before contacting Design Allure my family had lived in our home for 9 years, during initial construction all of the rooms were revamped with cabinets/counters/trim but the home theater room and bathroom were to be the main entertaining part of our home. As an engineer with a young family such big plans for the space were never completed. The space has so much opportunity but I found it difficult to put a vision of the space into motion. Design Allure came in and photographed/ measured the space, met with me on what important key parts of the room I wanted to stay the same and quickly picked up on the style I was looking for (it turned out to be called transitional). Without changing thestructural floorplan, Irene was able to open up the space and make it more inviting then I could have ever imagined. Thanks Design Allure! I now have the inspiration and a cohesive virtual model that I can work with to begin building my dream theater.

Tripp was terrific to work with on our dealership remodel. He first became a student of our business and then applied his outstanding problem-solving skills and design abilities. The resulting facility has proven to be an efficient, bright, and flexible space for our 200 Associates and 6,000 monthly Guests.

Pangaea provided excellent and creative designs for some difficult spaces in our new home, including kitchen, master bedroom and living room. The results were outstanding, and we receive nothing but compliments from folks who visit our home. She also operates on a fixed-fee model for her time, which made the design costs predictable.

Michelle helped create the perfect backyard space for us. We had an idea of what we wanted but not a good vision of how to transform what existed into what we wanted. In the design process Michelle helped us to think more broadly and to help the indiviual ideas we had flow into a congruent space. She listened to our ideas, made suggestions, added her own experience and developed a plan that we became very excited about. Then, as the project progressed, Michelle was there interacting with the landscapers and builders to make sure the plan was followed and that good decisions were made when unforeseen circumstances arose. Mostly I couldn't be there when the work was happening but I had great confidence that Michelle would be there when necessary to make knowledgeable suggestions and decisions that would insure a great outcome. We couldn't be happier with our new outdoor space and our decision to work Michelle. I would highly recommend her services for if you have high expectations for professionalism and for the final outcome of your project. Michelle has the experience, skills, and vision to make sure it happens for you. We are so grateful for what she did for us.

It was a pleasure working with Zach! I was looking to upgrade my fireplace, mantle. I had a vision for the space to include raw wood, tile and floating shelves. I met with Zach and described my desire for the space. He presented me with multiple sketches within a few days to a week. I chose what I liked from a few sketches and Zach was able to design a great focus wall for my space. I would highly recommend Zach Freund. He was very professional, caring. His creativity and knowledge were plentiful.

    About

    In 2007, I graduated from Oregon State University with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design and two years later, I earned my AKBD (Associate Kitchen & Bath Designer) certificate through the National Kitchen and Bath Association. I have worked the full spectrum of design including at several design/build firms on high end kitchen/baths and whole house remodels to smaller family-run construction companies with a focus on work where budget is paramount. In this industry, I have found that building relationships, networking with vendors, and focusing on quality long-term partners can generate the best bridges for life. My passion for interior design started when I was young, helping my uncle, a local contractor/home builder on job sites, analyzing the architectural plans, visiting product showrooms, and assisting with material choices. I loved the client interaction and creative expression interior design allowed. Plus, what a fun career! Working with homeowners to create beautiful interiors where they can feel comfortable and joyful is an exhilarating challenge I look forward to every day. My approach to design involves a very collaborative open communication between designer and client. To truly design the space, I need to know a few things about how you live. For example, how many people will be living in the home, how many pets, and low maintenance or green material preferences. As a designer, I can envision how simple, out-of-the-box solutions to problems in our environments can truly change the functionality of how we live. My personal style is transitional, however, I spend a lot of time upfront listening to my client's needs and wants before evaluating what style would be the best fit their lifestyle. I am very energized and encouraged for a great year after attending the 2014 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) and International Builders Show (IBS) in Vegas and eager to work on your project! Let me know how I can help you with your home! Key interior design tasks are as follows: * In-home client consultations * Auto CAD floor plans, elevations and renders * Putting together color palettes * Specifying materials and writing construction documents * Space layout and 20/20 cabinetry design * Furniture and window treatment selections * Individualized project budgeting and pricing * Design retainer payment structure

    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 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 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 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.
