Is there a person who can help me pick out colors for my Queen Anne house? I am afraid to do it on my own.

My experience with designers hasn’t been great. One designer had great ideas at our initial consultation but told me she was an “artist” not a business woman. I wanted to hire her, but she wouldn’t return my phone calls, so I guess I was rejected. Another designer 8 hours into the project she hasn’t given me a single usable idea. And of course I was paying her for her non-ideas. I would love to see an article about how to work with a designer.

As a Designer, I think you missed a very important item. Designers save clients money because, good ones, know what they are doing and prevent mistakes and waste.
