Interior designer or decorator suggestions?

modern dining roomChristina emails:

Can you ask your readers to recommend any interior decorators or designers they have worked with? I am looking for some help for my living room, but don't want to commit to buying everything at once, so a focus on someone I can pay to help me with a plan that I can implement over time would be great.

A designer can be an added expense for a home project. But we're often pleasantly surprised by how a talented designer can look at a building/space/place and see solutions, angles, and ideas a non-designer might miss. And if you buy a home that needs a lot of updating, being able to talk over a plan with someone who does this often could be a help.

So, got suggestion for Christina -- whether it's a designer or some other sort of resource? Please share! And a sentence or two about why you're recommending a person/service can be a big help.

Albany's own, the great Bill Allen.

I just used Modsy for my living room, it is online and slightly less personal but also a lot less expensive. I got 2 designs for around $50 with a coupon code (there are many floating around on blogs these days if you look around). They will do unlimited redesigns for you. You send in pictures of your space and a few dimensions. They came up with 2 layouts I hadn't even considered for my room and I am pretty happy with it!

A little late, but we used Diane as a designer. What I liked about her was that she didn't have a"vision" or "formula" in mind, the very first thing she did was assess the space, ask questions about our goal, what we liked and didn't like about the space....and before she left from the INITIAL consult, played with the arrangments of the current furniture to find a better set up to live with... here's the website http://www.designsensebydiane.com/

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
