Right or wrong? Only newcomers to decorating need support from interior designers. Absolutely wrong.

Even interior designers sometimes need decorating help. Case in point: Catherine Davis, a seasoned market editor at ELLE DECOR, House beautiful, and veranda, came to Décor Aid for helping them design the kitchen, dining and living room areas in their Brooklyn home. Although Catherine has impeccable taste, fabulous style, and an enviable collection of furniture and accessories, she struggled to bring all of the design elements together.

Décor Aid Master designer Alex took Catherine on a shopping spree in search of key pieces that would hold her space together. Shopping for your home without the help of an interior designer can be overwhelming. Here are some tips to make it a successful experience:

– First decide on a room layout so that you know the size of the parts you need.

– Start with the core pieces like the dining table and carpets.

– Be open and visit stores or websites that you don’t normally shop from. You never know where your new favorite piece is coming from, and interior designers can introduce you to stores and brands that you never knew existed.
