We hired Eric at Decorator's Edge to help us decorate our great room and foyer and pick out window treatments for several rooms. He comes to your house, listens to what you have in mind, then goes back to his store and picks out all the stuff, and gives you a price. They don't charge you for selecting products, but the catch is you have to buy everything from their showroom. The good part is, they already have everything in their showroom to decorate with (except major things like furniture with special fabrics and window treatments have to be ordered), so you can have your house decorated quickly. The bad thing is, their showroom is marked up about 300% so you pay way too much for the decorations (in exchange for his advice/services). Also, the window treatments would have been much cheaper if we had ordered them straight from the contractor he hired to hang them. I guess if you're more concerned with saving time and having convenience than you are saving money, it's worth using Decorator's Edge. But if you're someone who knows what you want and how you want your house to look, and have time to go buy the stuff yourself, you would be happier doing it yourself.
