What should I know before I contract an interior designer?
An interior designer is really needed if you are starting from scratch for help with air conditioning plans, electrical and bathroom designs, among others. But if you have a ready-made house or apartment then you will require an interior decorator. The difference is an interior designer holds a degree from an accredited university; an interior decorator is someone who will guide you through the process of choosing fabrics and furniture. You should know the designer’s work and exactly what they are doing for you. Be very clear on the task at hand.

I believe you are referring to swags. There are good swags as in French interiors, and there are bad swags as in Arabian interiors. But if your house is classical, a cut-out pelmet with an extended source of treatment is the way to go. May we suggest a curtain designer to help you out, email us for her address. If you are looking for a modern style, fake roman blinds with the right pleating hides all.
