  9.  Should I remodel before buying my furniture? No, everything should be planned together.
  10. What colors should I paint my new home? Color should be about what you like and how you want each room to feel, not about a design trend. Your interior designer can help.
  11.  What furniture pieces should I keep and will they fit in my new home?  A professional interior designer will be able to determine if some of your existing pieces will fit in your new home. They will draw up a furniture floor plan and measure all the pieces you would like to use. Then it is easier to see what piece will fit and work with your new look.
  12. Where do I find the best contractor for remodeling my home?  A professional interior designer is a great source for this because they work with contractors on a regular basis and know who will do a great job.
  13. Where do I find decorating ideas?   Home magazines, interior designer websites and Houzz.
  14. What Is The Best Way To Arrange My Living Room Furniture?    The best place to start with your living room furniture arrangement is with a good floor plan that is drawn to scale. You need to know how much room you will need to walk thru and to get from one side of the room to another side of the room.  If there is no plan, costly mistakes can be made.  A professional interior designer will always start with a floor plan even when decorating a small room.
  15.
