Not everyone is a designer and that's ok!
Color, texture, a home's history and personality, movement + flow, and the lifestyle of a home's inhabitants all come into play and must work together harmoniously for a space to feel intuitively designed and functional. Lend a designer touch to kitchen or bathroom updates, creation of a new playroom or nursery, new ideas for a bonus space, managing storage or developing organizational solutions, freshening up the style of furniture and decor, or giving your whole home a brand new look. I am available for consultations, self-guided design planning, or complete projects; please call so that I can learn more about your needs and outline fee options.
Staging Design benefits your bottom line.
If almost a third (28%) of buyers are more willing to overlook property faults when a home is staged and over 81% of buyers are better able to visualize the property as their future home when it's staged, then why wouldn’t you set out to maximize your selling power and get the highest return on your investment? Home staging maximizes buyer interest by highlighting key selling points of a home; giving purpose to underutilized spaces; improving flow; recommending furniture, decor and paint colors that appeal to most buyers; eliminating clutter and distracting personal effects; and increasing a home's curb appeal. Staged properties look like model homes and the listing photos will stand out from the competition and bring buyers through the door. Buyers are willing to spend more on the perceived value of a home when its staged. Home staging yields more buyer interest and showings, less time on the market, and a higher sale price — and its tax-deductible.
I work with both homeowners and agents and through a consultation will prepare a detailed roadmap of how to ready the home for listing. I stage owner-occupied homes, as well as vacant or semi-vacant properties. Whether you want to DIY it and need advice on what to do, or are looking for an affordable spruce up using your existing furniture and decor, or need furniture and accessories brought in — I am available for all of your needs. Call for details on fee structures and package options.
Color has the power to transform.
I develop cohesive color schemes that both suit your lifestyle and complement the period of your property and furnishings. Whether you have limited time or lack the confidence to take chances with color, wall treatments or wallpapers, I will listen to your inspiration and ideas and help you discover the look you’re hoping to achieve by bringing together the light, the architecture, and the use of the space for each room. We start with a pre-appointment phone call and then review the property in person. Call for our rates.
Organization + Storage Solutions
A well-organized space is a happy place.
Transform areas of your home or office with professional design and storage solutions that fit your lifestyle and unique challenges. Declutter, downsize and organize closets, basements, attics, kids rooms and playrooms, pantries, cabinets, laundry areas, mudrooms, garages and storage areas. I am also available to sort, clear out and organize entire homes. Call for details on consultation and project fee structures.
Vacant doesn’t make it.
Many buyers have a hard time envisioning how they will use empty spaces or knowing if their furnishings will fit when a property is devoid of furniture and decor. New or under-construction developments or properties can be virtually staged to bring rooms to life in photos and help buyers visualize the potential of a home. I will design and give purpose to the property with modern furnishings and decor and compose the listing shots as a cohesive suite to appeal to your target buyer.
I am an accredited Home Staging Professional with Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) and a Houzz Pro.
