This article obviously speaks to a lot of people, judging from the amount of times that it's showed up on my Facebook feed the past few days, but I really don't care for it. Just my opinion.
I reposted on my FB page, BUT I made the point that I don't blame people for not knowing any better. Another thing that makes it hard is the decorators who DO sell cheap on purpose to undercut. They hurt the public's perception as well. Kelley, I can't count the times I have pasted a link to your article to decorators who obviously have not the first clue about pricing.
On the topic of this article, there was one a few months back that went viral among decorators. It was so insulting to customers, I couldn't believe it. I can't remember who wrote it, but it seemed like every decorator in the world was cheering it on, except for a couple of people, including myself.
