Designing the urbanHome
What makes your home a home? For us, storage and wide open space plans are key. Practicality, form and function... who has the time to figure it? Could you help a mama out? Suzame asks:
I'm hoping some mamas out there can recommend an interior designer. We aren't looking for a total home makeover; we have one room -- our living room -- that's a puzzle to us in terms of getting the right furnture combo (it's overly big and maybe we have bad feng shui). Anyway, I've never worked with an interior designer before and have been dragging my feet in terms of getting together with one -- it seems like such a splurge. But I really can't come up with a way to make our living room livable. I don't want to spend a fortune -- I don't even know what they charge -- I just want someone who is professional, gets our style and our needs, who can make some recommendations on the type of sofa (or furniture combo) we need to get to make our living room more homey.
