Mr. Anstis, of All Finished Interior Design, did several projects for us in the past few years. One of the first was a headboard was created for a king size bed, that complimented the accessories in the room, without taking up much space. It was the perfect solution for tying the room together to complete the look we desired. Most recently, he helped us stage our home for selling it. He painted several rooms, including the living room, two bathrooms, kitchen and hallways. He did a fabulous job fixing the flaws in the drywall that had been caused by the settling of the house and water damage from a leak in the roof. His eye for color is appreciated, as he was able to accomplish an atmosphere of warmth that our home was lacking. His attention to detail is impressive! He was able to use items already in my home, to stage the house for a quick sale. He recommended a few changes that he was able to complete in a short amount of time. I am extremely thankful we found All Finished Interior Design to help us with fixing up our home!

Karina is an extremely creative interior designer that understands the construction side of things. She was a great listener, had a vision and paid special attention to every detail. She really listened to our ideas, went through our magazine clippings and turned them into something concrete. She suggested layouts, color schemes, décor, designed our kitchen and bathrooms and stressed the importance of lighting. The kitchen was just what I wanted combining a clean design with functionality. I also hired her to manage the renovation and she took charge of the whole process flawlessly managing it. She has great instincts and would quickly problem solve as questions came up and kept things on schedule. She was a stickler for getting the work done right. She combined function, style and comfort, furnished our interior with some beautiful and unique pieces that all seemed to come together. We love our home and are still in awe of the transformation. She truly got what we wanted and brought it to life. I have referred her team to close friends and they are just as happy as we are.

Lawrence and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Magan with Blue Forest Studios. Magan and her team were extremely professional and provided quality customer service. They went above and beyond to make my wedding everything I dreamt it would be. We called only 9-weeks from the wedding we had nothing... no decorations, linen, flowers, favors, or any vendors for the ceremony and reception. When I called Magan I was a mess. She was so calm and collected, came in and saved our wedding! All our family and friends complimented how beautiful it was. Blue Forest Studios really put us at ease and made us feel genuine. Magan made sure we were taken care of. We have already recommended Blue Forest to our friends! Thank you for everything! Sincerely, Lawrence & Sarah

Kathleen and Ellen are both very professional and talented decorators. I have hired them on several occasions, for decorating advice as well as color consulting for painting several rooms. They offered many helpful suggestions, at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to redecorate, stage a home for selling, or rearranging a space.

We had our home redecorated and some of our furniture replaced/updated. We found Darla (Roomwrappings) through Thumbtack which we had never used. We couldn't be happier! Darla was professional, creative, thoughtful and full of great ideas for utilizing existing home decor and furniture as well as incorporating new furnishings and ideas that didn't break the budget. We highly recommend using Roomwrappings for any of your home improvements! Thanks so much Darla.

About

I enjoy finding the best organizing solutions and interior decorations, while getting to know you, the customer, and fitting myself to your needs.

About

I am an architect and an interior designer based in Monroeville, PA and I have been designing interiors for the last ten years. I believe in designing green and sustainable spaces and my goal for every project is to ensure that each space is exactly what the client envisions.

About

My philosophy is that everyone can live in beautiful, functional spaces if they plan carefully and think creatively. I believe your surroundings directly impact your quality of life, and so a room should be a statement about the people who live within it, not the person who decorated it. Your personality, interests and needs should be considered so that you feel at home in your home. Many know "what they like", but have difficulty coordinating the details or envisioning the end result. By ascertaining your tastes and requirements, I can help you achieve your goals. Together, we can create beautiful, unique, functional living spaces that make a statement about you.

About

My design style ranges from contemporary to mid-century modern and Asian inspired. I believe that I can meet the needs of clients who wish to have openness, simplicity and sustainability without compromising elegance or the comforts and feel of being home. I can effectively convey the clients' needs, from the smallest detail to the grandest vision and translate to make their dream a reality.

I will clean anything, from inside to outside. I will provide you with a clean and dust-free atmosphere. I love to clean, and it is something I have been doing since I was a child. My mother was the same way, and it kind of just grew with me. I love to bring new life to homes with my interior design. I have had so many compliments from friends, family, and neighbors who have walked into my home and have told me they love how I set up my rooms and decorate my homes. The key word is “cheap,” but it doesn't look that way nor does the decorations.

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.
