Even if you're on a budget, you can still have a design expert weigh in on your decor choices—for free. A perfectly styled home is within reach, thanks to Williams-Sonoma Inc.'s latest news. The parent company of brands including West Elm, Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma, Rejuvenation, and Mark and Graham just announced that it is offering free design consultations for customers with the launch of the Design Crew.
The crew is a team of in-store design experts who will help customers find products and services for everything from decorating, renovating, entertaining, cooking, and gift giving. All you have to do is head to any store owned by Williams-Sonoma, Inc. to schedule a free consultation. The experts will help you come up with decorating ideas, give you fabric and paint recommendations, measure and create custom floor plans, and provide organizing solutions. For a fee, you can hire people to help you put it all together—from assembling furniture, hanging drapes, and even painting your walls. Plus, members of The Key, Williams-Sonoma's free loyalty program, will get 3 percent back on purchases.
