    I just went on LS's website prices on their fabrics are between $20-$35/yard. Many of their fabrics designers can buy directly from trade only sources and not pay the retail prices. I do like LS for trim.

    I pointed out the difference because it is my work and it is of a specific quality and I don't feel that L&S comes close to the same quality. These projects are all professionally designed most often with custom & bespoke elements. As a designer, I find it disheartening to have other people post where the look can be knocked off on my own profile. I find it furthermore in bad taste to then be criticized for pointing out that the "look for less" is not anywhere close to the original design.

    I look forward to the conference call Houzz & I will be having just after the new year. I think that are positive changes that can be made on here to alert homeowners to the budget range individual designers work with for their projects. I think qualifying the designer/budget would be insightful for all involved. I also think that each project should be assigned a price tag to show what someone could expect to pay for the same room concept wise.

    It's not a judgment about budgets. We have done a wide variety of projects with equally as varied budgets. Having said that, we've been in business for 15+ years now and we know what budget range a project needs to have in order for us to take it on.

    Thank you for your comments though, they have been helpful in articulating how I would like to see the site function as a designer.

    Jennifer, on another thread Tapestry Beige is mentioned. Didn't mention which paint company though when I google, Benjamin Moore pops up. I'm with the sharers, realistically this site has two purposes, to find a designer for those that can afford it and to find paint colors and furniture for the rest of us. That table costs more than most of the things in my house so your trade secrets are just silly. People who can afford designers don't care about knowing the name of your paint colors. They point and say that one.

    Why are you picky about working for free that you won't answer a question, but have no conscious about taking free advertising to post solicit clients. If you won't answer questions I say get off this site. That's why it was created. Go BUY your ads in a magazine. No one will bother you with questions. Sounds hypocritical to me. Just my opinion.

    I can appreciate you wanting to defend your sister, but the comments can about not wanting to answer a simple room size question. That has nothing to do with advice, decorating tips, or missed revenue generation.

    houzz is all about sharing great design ideas. I love the site. I get great ideas. I do appreciate and respect the designers. They are fabulously talented, but Lee Anne, I think you must be getting some free advice and ideas as well. I'd be flattered if someone loved my design. I'm sure the designers sharing their designs on Houzz are expecting consumer questions.. My's a website with ideas and questions. It's not about being greedy.... It's their prerogative to answer. I don't think they have an issue.

    @Terri - I just came across this thread and noticed our Hudson dining room posted by Jennifer Young above. The pedestal table is a Marge Carson "Samba" table with silver leaf trim. It retails at around $9,000 CAD. And yes that is Revere Pewter in our dining room however based on the photo alone I don't think it's RP in the Trickett room, it looks more grey to me than Revere Pewter.. Hope this helps. Good luck from Montreal!

    I love this look - and am personally aiming for a similar look - question is : will this work with an open kitchen on one side? Am torn. Please advice.

    If you use it a lot at the full length then you would need two of these fixtures for it to fit the space. This table was less than 7ft closed and we custom made two 12" leaves to add on to the end which was the maximum for this fixture.

    As a consumer, I have to agree that Houzz is a forum for Q & A. I am often curious about one particular item in a photo which I could incorporate into my home and would like to know the source. I would suggest that 'Pinterest' would be a better application for those designers who are unwilling to share their information.
    As a potential client, I look on Houzz for ideas and also the style of the design team who submitted the photos for future reference. And I have to agree that if a designer is unwilling to answer a few source questions regarding their photos, why bother posting at all. Because I too, would feel the negativity and unwillingness to share information and merge ideas on designs for future projects.

    I think, in a dining room, it will look better to have all four legs of the sideboard on the hardwood floor. The rug can come just up to the edge of it perhaps? The rug should generously define the seating area, and I think the room will look crisper if it is limited to that focus.
  • PRO

    I would keep the sideboard off of the carpet. The rug should be large enough for the chairs to back out from the table comfortably. You don't want to swallow the room up with a rug, hardwood floors are beautiful and you want them to be seen!

    It depends on the light really. Do the lights point up or down or do they stick out... The height of the people who are most often sitting at the table is another factor.

    it's a wool silk rug from almost 8 years ago now. I believe the size shown was about $11,000.00 available through designers.

                          Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Houzz Tour: Dream Home in TorontoApr 7, 2011

                          The homeowner's existing dining room table was sent to a cabinetmaker where two leaves were created to accommodate more seating and was stained along with the buffet to adapt to the home new color scheme. New chairs surround the refurbished table. A pendant fixture from Union Lighting polishes the look.

                          Proportion: This room is in proportion because the table is neither too big nor too small for the space. It fills the room without feeling either cramped or bare

                          The table is in proportion to the rest of the room. The chandelier is not too large for the space either.
