Susan H, such an interesting statement. It is definitely his right not to hire one.

Not that I wouldn't love a little advice about things. I am grateful I have more time now (being retired) to study and run around to a million tile stores and pick up a million samples to bring them home to compare. My hesitation in hiring a designer (other than the cost) is finding a designer that wouldn't make it their style instead of mine. I imagine these - the best designers - are the most costly so I will have to just do my best and hope I don't make huge mistakes.

Either way in the end it's just stuff - it doesn't need to be expensive or impressive just comfortable and pleasant so my kids and grandkids will enjoy coming home to play. We love to play. :-D
