Let's face it with all the home decorating and home reno shows on tv there is a lot of appeal to doing your own without professional help. But let's face it some projects need a professional and some projects just have to be done right. You must study your abilities honestly because you don't want to waste time and money.
Hiring a professional decorator or designer can be money well spent. Some would believe it is just too expensive or that it won't reflect your taste. But for a two hour consultation you can have someone look at your plans and give you confidence that you aren't going to far astray. Paint colors can be daunting as well as where to start and stop colors. Maybe you need more help such as furniture placement or just new ideas. Another service that is very helpful is a shopping service. This is where you get help in choosing the right furniture and accessories.
