we asked aisha to furnish an apartment completely for us in Plano, Tx while still living in New Mexico. we gave her about a month to have it fully ready for us to move into upon our arrival in Tx. She not only had it ready, within budget, beautifully decorated, but met us at the door. She did an excellent job selecting furniture of quality, still within budget. She also "read my mind" well enough to select items we enjoy, and expect to use for many years to come. Her decorating skills are outstanding. This is one example in our lives when nothing went wrong, and I know of nothing she could have done better.

I've worked with Chiara on 3 projects so far. I initially contacted her because we recently purchased a new home that needed to be completely updated. We did an initial consultation and also met at the house so she could see the space. She presented a paint selection which we were both happy with at the first try. We only made some minor adjustments to the first colors she chose due to the lighting in the house. In addition to the paint selection she found painters who were top notch - and they did the job in on a tight schedule. For the sake of this review I won't go into extreme detail but the week of our move we were on a previously planned vacation and I had no hesitation giving her a key to the house for access for herself and the painters while we were gone. She supervised the job while we were gone and we were extremely happy with the result and having that done before moving in. At the last minute we decided we wanted to have the master closet redesigned and installed. She quickly created a functional design and found a contractor to do the building of the closet. While the installation of the closet itself took longer than I thought it would (this was not due to Chiara - our communication and expectations of the contractor could not have been more clear and besides, these things happen sometimes), I'm very happy with the finished product. Most recently I contacted her for the kitchen space. I purchased and refinished a kitchen table & chairs but wasn't sure about the color so I reached out to her to talk about the kitchen design even though we won't be starting that remodel until a later date. We did a consultation and talked about the design for the kitchen in detail. I was again very happy with the initial design and only made a few minor changes while we were talking about some of the details. She was able to get the kitchen chair cushions reupholstered for me in beautiful fabric that fits with the design we are doing in the house for a reasonable cost. Before contacting Chiara for the kitchen I was trying to figure it out myself and did some driving around town looking at fabrics. If you have never done that before it is completely overwhelming! I'm so glad I gave up on the DIY plan! She has oodles of resources, contractors, upholsterers, painters, people who do wonderful, quality work for a reasonable cost. We are currently working on floors for the extra bedrooms in the house. Truly, Chiara has been a pleasure to work with. She is very professional, prepared, she listens and works to incorporate your "vision" for your space while giving good design advice. She has been able to work on our timeline, doing one project at a time, little by little. I know a lot of people think that with Pinterest and HGTV you can do it yourself. Not true!! The investment in a designer for your home can make all the difference and without reservation I would recommend Chiara for any size project of whatever style/taste.

We'd just moved into a new house and needed help with furniture placement, drapery, art and lighting. Charmaine provided full service assistance with all that so we could quickly turn our new house into home. My brother and his family move into the area next month, I'll be recommending they call Wynter Interiors Inc right away.

David has been delightful to work with. We hired him six months ago to design our entire house in Trophy Club. As a busy professional, I don't have the time or the talent to decorate a house of our size. David was tremendously quick to understand our budget and style. He knows what we can afford and what would look best in our home. When it's time to make a decorating or design decision, David only provides us with one or two items to make a choice from. David's choices are always extraordinary and it's nothing I would have ever found myself. He is so brilliant; he could certainly finish our house to our taste without any additional assistance from us. David has also helped us finish all of our projects under budget. This has allowed us to allocate more finances to different projects we weren't going to execute until later in the year. David is extremely charming and is always there to respond to our inquiries. I'm very glad he is our designer. It's been an enjoyable experience. He is a hard worker; he doesn't waste your time, and will get the project completed on time and under budget.

Belen Ellis has made each room in my house special! She transformed my living room by faux painting bricks on my fire place. They were solid and dull, she added warmth with her magic wand (paint brush)! She painted a mural in my kids play room, brightening the room and making it a happy space! She painted several pieces of furniture over 15 years ago for me, they have lasted the test of time. She is a perfectionist. She is talented. Belen is honest and trustworthy. Her pricing is more than fair. I have her beautiful art hanging in my house. I have precious gift cards that she has designed. She is a talented and gifted artist with a big heart!

Julie is outstanding home decorator and stager. She can take items you already have and rearrange them to make it look like it's from a home decor magazine. She's very good at mixing pre-owned items with new items as well. She definitely knows how to make a home feel warm and inviting. She also has a great eye for color! I have terracotta color brick which was very hard to find a color that looked good with it. Julie suggested a color and it looks spectacular! I've received many compliments on the color. It took my house from boring to a really rich look. She offers a variety of services for different budgets and no hidden surprises. She listens to your needs and desires. I would highly recommend her and will definitely use her services again!

Kelly's very sweet, professional, and easy to work with. She works efficiently and provides honest feedback to our selections. She pays attention to the vision that we are trying to achieve and listens to our concerns. She lifts the stress of decorating the house and self-doubt from us and makes us enjoyed the building process again. She's also very flexible and responsive to our requests. I appreciate that Kelly pays attention to details and provides us with tips and tricks during the construction process. I would highly recommend her.

I bought a remodeled home in North Oak Cliff in September. I love the way Avignon Construction & Design rehabbed and decorated the home. Even after I closed on the property -- and had a few issues -- seller Roberto Torres sent his employees to fix the problems at no extra charge. That's a man who stands behind his work! I would highly recommend this company to anyone buying and remodeling a home.

    From the time we began to build our house, Jill was there to help with decisions that made everything much easier for me. From the architecture to colors, custom curtains & all decorating. She pulled everything together to create exactly what I envisioned. She is a master at knowing what look you are going for just by asking the right questions & that helps save both time & money. She is very professional & went above and beyond to help me. I am so pleased with Jill, and the outcome that has resulted from working with her.

    I live by the premise of "Always take it a step further and give it that extra touch". I focus on what the client wants instead of my financial needs. It is truly amazing how much of a difference is made by doing this.

    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.
