  • Storage and organization. I like each room of my home to be well organized and have plenty of storage places that actually look nice. I like eco-friendly products that are durable and easy to clean (I have two big dogs who like to make a mess!). I love to look at rooms in magazines where there is built-in storage that just looks gorgeous in the room (or you can't even tell it's there). I think so many rooms in people's homes would look so much nicer if they just had multipurpose furniture and products that allowed them to put frequently used items away when they're done using them.

  • I'd like to see my place completely transformed; From camps to Cribs!! Organization is an issue for me.

    But hiring an interior decorator for organization seems a little much, there are professional organizer.... so if I hired a decorator; comfort, warmth, durability, elegance and simplicity would be the issues I'd want addressed.

  • I would want everything to be functional and comfortable. I like all of the common areas of my house to have one color in common and then each room have other things to set it apart from the other rooms. I hate knick knacks and clutter! I would want it be very clean looking. Organization for things such as game systems and movies would be important.

  • I like to do the decorating myself but there are times it would help to have original ideas from a pro. I know there are things I wouldn't even think about in terms of color, fabric, furniture arrangement and resources for bargains. Like a wedding planner, it would be more to help me love what the final outcome is, rather than do the work for me.
