Gift certificates offer designer consultation
Here's a unique gift idea: a two-hour consultation with an interior designer. Perhaps you'd like to give one to yourself.
In preparation for Designer Month, May 15 to June 15, the Hawaii chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers is selling gift certificates for $150 each.
Throughout Designer Month the gift certificates may be exchanged for a two-hour consultation with an interior designer, appointed to meet with you at your home, project site or the designer's office.
