Interior Decorator Wanted

Hi,

We need an interior decorator. My husband and I have completely different styles (he's contemporary, I'm Sante Fe). Our home (to me) still looks like "early marriage" after 17 years! We can't even make a decision about wall paint colors or new flooring. Sigh! If you know someone who can help, please let me know ASAP.

Thanks!
W. in Carrollton

Try Andrea Krolick! She is wonderful. I dealt with two other interior designers who would not listen to me about my preferences and who seemed holier-than-thou before I found Andrea. She was a joy to work with and kept in focused on my budget. I love the look we came up with. You'll love her energy! Her number is ###-###-#### or you could try ###-###-####. Good luck!

I would recommend Betsy Lucido, she is an Interior Decorator and she does her own sewing. We used her for our entire home for our window coverings. She is a great person and very resonable. Let her know I sent you.

Hi W., I noticed your request for an interior designer and thought I would pass my friend, Nicole Arnold's name. I know her very well, since I am in a networking group with her and see her weekly. I have seen her work and I am very confident you would be very happy with her. She is very good at either using your existing items and rearranging them more esthetically and she also has access to an array of home accessory items if that is what you need. She is a nice person and very easy to work with I am sure you will love her. Her email address is ____@____.com her know that S. Schierling recommended her. Hope this helps.

I have used (and am using for my new house) the same woman. She may or may not be the right one for you, but you may write me a personal note and I'll describe her preferences and working and pricing style. Or I'll give you my number. I love her work but there are some drawbacks to using someone who charges a lot less than the high rates that others charge. The tradeoff was great for me. Instead of charging by the hour or giving you a lump sum price in the beginning (which they will change as you change your mind or add to the scope,) she charges what she thinks is fair for her involvement. It comes out to about $35/hour.

Example, one bid I had for a living/dining and fireplace mantel only remodel was $20,000, materials included. I was horrified.

This decorator ended up charging me about $3,200 for consulting with me on the whole downstairs. (That included color and texture selections, wallpaper for the powder bath, adding & designing new cabinets, adding furniture, lamps, moving furniture, new floor to ceiling draperies for the 2 story living area, all selections, placement, hanging pictures, etc.) She passed along the cost of the work or items to me in addition (painter, cabinet maker, drapery maker & material, etc) at their cost. She has excellent people to call upon that charge less than most and are more flexible in that they don't charge minimums like many others do. I probably spend only about $3,000 more for those things.

You can choose to do far, far less and even do it steps at a time. Part one year and part another year. Or one room at a time spaced out as you like. You can divy up rooms where these rooms are more contemporary and these rooms are more southwest and tie them together with something consistent (like color pallette).

It was treat for me to get a mentor and get experience so that I felt I could do the smaller stuff well on my own and she became a personal friend as she was a joy to be around. My mom hung a few pictures and clocks and they stayed like that our entire lives on white walls. The furniture never changed. No mentoring there.

Call Andrea Krolick-###-###-####. Great gal, great style, great resources and will work with a budget. I have used her in 2 homes and she is doing a couple of projects for me right now.

I would ask around. All you really need is a person with good style to help make some decisions. I have a friend who does this for fun with friends and is great at it. She'd be great to hire for a consult sort of deal where she would come in and give you opinions for simple updates.
