(CNN)After four emails in about as many hours, I was almost certainly driving Lyndsi Lee crazy.
But the 35-year-old interior designer assured me we’d soon figure out whether a pair of comfy chairs or a couch would look better in my son’s playroom. It was a pressing question, because having doors and windows along the back wall makes arranging furniture a challenge.
Lee, who lives half a country away in East Prairie, Missouri, had spent a fair amount of time compiling a list of furnishings within my budget at Target, Overstock and a few boutique vendors. She mapped the precise location of each bookshelf, table, and picture frame in detailed renderings, and suggested a soft shade called “Repose Gray” for the walls.
