That cute little couch leopard that perfectly fit into your fictional interior, may simply not exist in nature, and replace him could not find even a few months, and ends with the purchase of all first vending things, far from the original idea as the Moon from Earth. Incidentally, free time is to forget, almost all of it will go on patrols in the boutiques and shops, it really takes away all the free minute.

    Herein lies one of the advantages of professional designers to the mere mortals: Every self-respecting decorator knows dozens and dozens of interesting shops, markets and suppliers that sell truly interesting and quality stuff on various subjects and styles, ranging from the eaves and ending with an exclusive furniture, and trying to choose among them cooperating directly with the manufacturer, only those implementors provide 'branded' things sane prices, the others are only the third – the fourth link in the chain of intermediaries, and such today, unfortunately, most of the difference in the price of the same things in different shops in the city can reach hundreds of percent. Thus, the process of creating their own design can turn into a prolonged hassle, and the result may not match the initial expectations. And if you do not want to spend all their time inventing something exclusive to the follow- problem wherever it is something to get it, the only option are professional services, which first develop satisfying your design project, and then sells it within a reasonable timeframe. The downside is only that the services of these masters are expensive.
