Question about decorators
I am considering hiring a decorator for our new build. Not for the entire house, just kitchen and perhaps a bit of the family room. The area I live in is not the place to hire a decorator, so I'm thinking of hiring someone from out of town. I'm sure this is done a lot when it's not a big project and they don't have to be on site, that it could be through emails and phone calls.
I realize no one can be spot on with the cost, but can someone give me an idea of how this would work? Do you think they would charge an hourly consulting fee or a price per project? If so, what do you think the hourly cost would be? We are not the Rockefellers as my grandmother would say lol, but we do ok. I cannot afford thousands and thousands of dollars, but a few would be ok. I don't think I'd necessarily have them buy my furniture, but guide me in the right direction and make suggestions, etc. I have no idea how this works and don't know anyone who has worked with a decorator, so I don't want to make a fool of myself if I call one and it's extremely expensive.
Thanks so much :)
