Lessons to Learn When Shopping for an Interior Decorator _ Although interior decorating can be fun, there are so many principles to a well_decorated home that it is often wise to rely on a professional. Since financing your decorator can be a task all of its own, we recommend you shop around before you choose one. Because interior decorating is so based on your own opinions, it is important that you get samples, ideas, and possible references for the interior decorator. Interior decorators should have a book, a website, or a pamphlet showing their previous work with other clients. Also, asking the interior decorator for referrals from past clients is always a good idea. You will want to ask past clients about the type of service that they received, the creative ability of the interior designer, and the promptness of the work completed. Guidelines such as these ensure that your interior decorator will have exactly what you are looking for.

Traditional pastels will be back, with a decidedly feminine flair, but don't be surprised by occasional accents in bright fashion colors.
