What does an interior designer do?


Every interior designer has their own process. It can be difficult to know which companies perform quality work and what to expect without understanding what all an interior designer should be handling.

Here at Design Allure, we strive to create beautiful, functional, thoughtful interiors for clients in the Portland, Lake Oswego, Hillsboro and surrounding areas. We do this through careful evaluation of your lifestyle, tastes and budget.

Once we’ve gotten to know your needs more intimately, we create a customized interior design style that complements your home.

Next, we put together a floor plan to determine the furniture and decor arrangements that create the most natural flow and balance from room to room.

Should your project require, we'll even create digital 3D renderings of each room to help you get a true feel for the space in a photo-realistic format.

Finally, we select, order and assemble your finishes, fixtures and furniture for an unforgettable grand finale reveal!
