Ask A Designer
I want to change the look of my home, I know what things I like when I see pictures, but have no idea how to get that in my house. I don’t really want to purchase an entire living room, but would rather refresh what I have and buy new pieces here and there. Can a designer help me? Do they do that kind of thing? Help!
The best thing to come with blogs and design blogs is that you can see the sense of style a designer has before you hire them. First, find a few blogs or websites that have the look you are aiming for. A lot of designers offer email consultations. If the designer you are looking for doesn’t offer the services you want, they can probably recommend you to someone that can.
Services range from floor plan arrangement, paint, floor and material selection, and finishing touches. Best of all, designers may have creative solutions to tricky issues and can offer you MANY different options for an affordable solution. WIN WIN!
If you can email me a question, with a picture if needed, I will answer it for you. Send me your hardest battles. I can even enlist the help of some fellow designers of you are looking for a few options.Here are some previous design questions I have answered.

ohhhh Brooke what a fantastic idea. Hopefully one day I’ll be redesigning and will finally be able to call you for your insight.

Who doesn’t need design advice? I wish you could see my home office. It is painted in a warm terracotta colour. I would love to update it and make it fresher. Any ideas?

What a great idea! Thank you so much for offering this. I will be emailing you soon as I think my family room is just too dark and just need some hint as to what colors/items that can lighten it up.

Oh my gosh!!! I would LOVE for you to come to our old farm house and help me revamp it! Hubs loves the rustic country look and I love the sleek, fresh, modern look. Help! LOL!

Perfect timing for this post! My husband has become obsessed with renovating/redesigning our house as of late. I’m not sure why … maybe lots of HGTV over the holidays? But with a small budget (ok maybe non existent is what it really is) it is hard for us to envision what we could do (move furniture around, paint etc). Will definitely be sending you a few questions!
