I am going to use a designer. I am a little intimidated, but I have decided the value is there. I am creative and full of ideas. The problem is pulling it all together into a more timeless look without mistake. I know I could make expensive ones. I appreciate this Ideabook and the comments so much. I don't have a lot of money, but you all have solidified my decision. Now to find someone. I gleaned some tips on that too. thank you all so much!

life4real just remember that a good designer will be respectful of your wishes and realistic about budget. Be sure you feel a connection with them since they'll be in your space a whole lot! All of my clients were amazing people that I can honestly say I am still so happy to know. So glad we could be of help!
