Hiring an Interior Designer to help is an expense many people aren't exactly prepared for. It seems like you can figure things out on your own, but do yourself a favor and please hire Darla. I exhausted my resources (houzz, blogs, google) before hiring her and I should have done it months ago. Not only are she and her team a total delight to work with, she delivered. I haven't felt this peace of mind since the entire project started. I was driving myself crazy. She puts herself in your shoes and really thinks of every possibility. I am very satisfied with her work.
