We had a TERRIBLE experience with this business today. My sister liked a tea light holder that fits in the top of a wine bottle. They had several that were very nice. There was a significant difference in price. When we asked about that we were told that difference was because LOCAL artists made them and they set their own prices based on time and materials. She ended up buying the one she really liked. It was wrapped in tissue paper and put in a bag at point of sale. We then went to the Fredricksberg pie company around the corner. She took the box out of the bag and in bold lettering it says MADE IN CHINA!!!!! I looked at it, shocked. We agreed that we NEVER wanted to buy anything made in China and that we had been told that a LOCAL ARTIST had created its product. We talked about what to do. We agreed she should return it.We looked on Amazon and found that EXACT product for 50% less money than she had just spent!!! Local artist. This owner is a liar and a cheater! We went back to the store within one hour of the purchase time to make the return. The clerk would not do a return and we asked him to call the owner. She said she would only do a store credit. Store credit for stuff made in China and lied about and overpriced in Texas. This is shameful. We will never be back to this store and her behavior casts a dark pall over the entire shopping experience in Fredricksberg. Beware all of you! Do NOT go to D'vine Designs except to take pictures or get ideas. You can order EVERYTHING she sells for half off from Amazon if you want to support Chinese workers. If you want to Support LOCAL artists, go somewhere else where you won't be lied to and ripped off.
Tips & Advices
Provide the landscape designer with photos of designs you find attractive and might want to emulate. Gardening and architecture magazines can be useful in this regard. It's also important to let the landscape designer know how the  space should function. For example, a space that is being used as a play area for kids will have different objectives from a space being used to entertain friends. Finally, have a clear idea of how much you are looking to spend, since this will impact the build choices made by the landscape designer.
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.
