How Much For This Room?

Calgary-based interior decorator, artist, and photographer Lori Andrews, aka the 10-Cent Designer, is back with How Much For This Room? to take us into a welcoming client space, Jill, to break down and list each item with a grand total at the end. Jill's condo looks phenomenal.

Lori says, "Jill initially hired me for a 2 hour consultation for her 1 bedroom condo. I surprised her by recommending she buy all new furniture. We have continued to work together where required. The client is on a budget so she completes the plan we came up with piece by piece. er next order of business is a fabulous new light fixture for above the dining table and new white granite countertops in the kitchen."

Before scrolling down, I invite you to view Jill's apartment before (link).
