Hope I did this right now😉.
Didn’t see that it was going into the tehillim forum lol
No girls... did not want you to say tehillim for this lol so sorry but think you had a good laugh:)
I am searching for a decorator to help me with an extension that I did for my mother.
I extended into my garage and started decorating myself. I put in brand new kitchen and wood floors. I stained them dark brown even thou everyone told me to do grey ( but I think grey is too cold) (but think too dark now) so need to lighten this place up. dont want it to look like a nursing home:((

Am looking for middle of the road decor - traditional but in a modern way and tastefully put together..
I live in flatbush.

Kitchen guy recommended faigy Gestetner. Is she chassidish? Anyone hear of her?

Hope I did this right?

A high gloss finish, light walls and good lighting should help. If it still feels too dark, add a rug.

Generally in this forum we request tehillim for specific needs. For the most part home decoration is not something people request tehillim for. If you post in the most well matched forum, the traffic driven there will have more accurate answers. Here you are only getting the curious ones.

This reply should be pinned somewhere. It's a great template.
OP, hatzlacha. It really is wonderful when you get floors you like. I still walk into my kitchen, happy, even after a few years.

PF, what floors do you have? When we bought this house a few years ago, the previous owners had recently redone the kitchen with ceramic tiles. They are easy to clean but very hard; my feet hurt so much after a day of standing and cooking! If I could find a flooring that is easy to clean and easy on the feet -- well, I am not saying Tehillim for that, but I might say my own private Hallel if I could get to that state!

When I was brand new here I posted asking about wrinkle creams. Couldnt understand why someone wrote “not nice” until I saw that by mistake I put it under gifts!

I heard from someone that Miriam Scharf doesnt do kitchens anymore. She's into doing new stores.
I was looking to do my kitchen last year (which I didn't yet do) and I also got the name Gestetner. I called her and she was $175 an hour (maybe more this year). Is that the going rate? I thought that was steep. Anyway, OP, let me know what you decide and the number of the designer/decorator you go with

Just looked up Aidy Grunhut Instagram. Nice stuff! Does modern and traditional.

I have one big room for living room and kitchen dinette area. And then a small bedroom. Dont need a whole house done. Just want a few new items in my mother’s living space to put it all together in a classic way. Sofa, rug, picture and small dresser with nightable in bedroom.

I bought on my own a white glass table with gold legs with three chairs in a neutral leather grain. Is a beautiful set but not on my dark floors. It looks like an old set. 😜

Miriam1281 - FAIGY gestetner charges $175. I dont know if you are talking about the same person (maybe you got the first name wrong?). If not, and LEAH gestetner is more reasonable, can you please post her rate and phone number? I would be interested.
