A very important question to ask yourself when hiring an interior designer!
Do I like the designer? Can I spend a lot of time with him/her?
Good communication is a must. Working with an interior designer involves some give and take. You will share ideas, and the designer will contribute insights and advice based on his or her talents, knowledge and experience. Depending on the scope of the project, you could be working with your designer a couple of weeks to many, many months.
