In one we meet Audrey Theis' who moved from a condo in Sellwood to Raleigh Hills. Bridget Otto writes that Theis "...loved the traditional layout of the house and knew she could plant a vegetable garden, turn one bedroom into an office, and have the space she so desired to accommodate her extended family."
She chose for guidance Gilyn McKelligon of Gilyn McKelligon Interiors, 503-297-5659, whose office is in the area for interior design guidance and Carol Director of Scott Director's Custom Upholstery & Accents, 503-292-9411.
In the second article, also written by Bridget Otto, we get another look at "What you need to know about selecting, working with an interior designer."This article features interior designers Susan Grady of gradyinteriors.com and Terrance Mason, of terrancemasoninteriors.com. Both Grady and Mason are well-qualified and on the Board of Directors of NW society of Interior Designers (NWSID). Terrance Mason is the current president of NWSID.
The information is excellent and hiring a professional can save you money and avoid mistakes.
