Above and beyond customer service from Narhan! I went in on a lunch break looking for shoes for an interview. Nathan helped me find the perfect shoes in no time and he helped me figure out that I've been wearing the wrong size shoes for years?! I felt like a million bucks walking into that interview yesterday! This evening I received an email from Nathan saying he hoped the interview went well and hoped the shoes made a difference for me...they did, Nathan! Thank you so much for being amazing at what you do!!

Nathan Wright is my "go-to" person. He remembers me, my name, my likes even when I have been absent for a year or more. No sooner do I walk in the door than I hear his cheery voice greeting me by name! I can be picky and hard to please, but Nathan's good humor and professional demeanor never waiver. Indeed, I believe Nathan is not just a foot whisperer, but a sole/soul healer!

I have shopped at Marlou's for years and love there service, styles and their employees. This time I had just gotten my walking boot off, and needed a multi purpose shoe. Nathan helped me find the style and worked with me to fit me right. Awe, comfort is awesome in the SAS shoes he fit me with. Thanks Nathan, Jane and Marlou's for the great personalized service!

Tips & Advices
Interior designers can generally work on every type of room, but one should not assume that all of them can work on every type of space. More complicated projects--for example those in buildings with historic preservation strictures, or those that are going for sustainability certifications--will be suited to interior designers with specific expertise. Also, interior designers that have experience in a certain type of project may not want to take on projects that are outside their expertise. For example, an interior designer who has only worked on commercial projects may not want to do a small private home.
Every interior designer has their own style, but some designers are more versatile than others. Some really do specialize in functionality and code compliance, whereas others are more focused on aesthetics. Interior decorators are completely focused on visual impact, and therefore should be reviewed and selected based on how well their style is a match for the client’s tastes.
Full-service interior design starts with an assessment of a site and the client’s long-term needs for that space. It encompasses concept design, floor plans and lighting plans, providing project specifications to contractors, supervising  contractor negotiations and installations, applying for permits, and shopping for all the materials and pieces for the project. On top of this, there are the “decorator” deliverables, i.e. creating the aesthetic of the space, selecting wall colors/covers and furniture pieces, purchasing products and installing them.
An interior designer may come into a development project very early on, working with the developer and architect from the pre-construction phase. They may be the one to design floor plans, decide where to place interior walls, and supervise contractors that are installing elements of the build. They often work on commercial projects, although many of them work on residential projects. Interior designers can “switch hats” and do interior decoration, which means they are only focused on the aesthetic elements and visual components of a residence.
An interior designer or interior decorator should ask a potential client what the scope of the project is, what the projected budget is, what payment structure the client wants, and what the timeline for the project is. Also, they should be asking whether the client has any samples of other projects they like, and would like to use as a guideline. They could also ask what the client’s budget for furniture/accessories/art is, since that in many cases is a separate amount from the budget for the designer’s labor. If an interior designer is being interviewed early into a new build or a renovation project, they might ask questions to determine whether they can collaborate with architects and contractors from early on, to execute their vision for the space. If that is not in line with a client’s wishes, the client can then say that the project scope is for interior design only.
