Transforming Rooms

Great tips Fred! Your comment that an interior designer will help you view things through a different lens is so true. Often people are ready to toss a rug or chair, when we'll provide ideas for moving certain things to another room, or recovering them. We also guide them to durable fabrics that are timeless, so that as you said, the major purchases like a sofa can be timeless!
