These six great tips are from Lara Fishman, Owner of Storm Interiors and her new venture Designers Call. Designer's Call was conceived after a number of Lara's friends, many of them busy parents, expressed the need to have their homes designed by a professional, but simply couldn't afford the time or cost required.

For many it was a matter of finding a solution for a small projects or help with a important purchase. But not a project that warranted a traditional interior designer. Lara realized she could bring fast, affordable decorating services and design products straight to her clients' homes. What a great idea! She's based in LA, but has a lot of terrific ideas on her site.
