a benchmark hourly rate for decoraters
 
can anyone help me with a rule of thumb hourly rate to hire a decorater - am trying to do some budgets. The house is relatively new so there isn't masses of prep required.

It is my understanding that most decorators/designers (there is a difference) charge as a percentage of the job so no real hourly rate.

My wife's a designer and for "whole" jobs, she charges a percentage of the job (spec'ed by finished materials used, from furnishing to appliances, etc.)

But she does also break it into smaller components for some clients that may only want color consult, space planning, etc.. That she charges per hour.
