This is a good question, but it depends. It depends on the designer you want to hire. There are those “rich and famous” clients that pay more than an arm and a leg (I’m sure) to have a designer design their home. If you are looking for that particular designer, then most likely, no, you can’t afford them. On the other hand, if you are like so many other “normal regular” people you can find a designer out there that you can afford. Just remember, not every designer is perfect for you and same goes for the designer. If you are the type of person that loves shabby chic or rustic or neutral colors and you hire a designer that designs with modern, colorful, lots of pattern, you probably won’t love the design they come up with. If they are having to change the way they design, they may not like the outcome either. There are designers that are really great at doing different styles, be mindful of that when you’re looking around for one.
