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.
Maximize your selling power.
Think of it this way: home staging will most likely cost less than an initial price reduction. Avoid carrying the financial and emotional burden of a home sitting on the market. It pays to invest in home staging before listing to garner your highest return because you will make it back in the sale of the property, AND staging is a deduction you can take on the sale of your home! Unfurnished spaces confuse buyers about how to use the rooms and clutter or poor quality photography detracts from interest in viewing a property. Home staging highlights the key selling points of a home; gives purpose to underutilized spaces thus maximizing square footage; improves flow; uses furniture, decor and paint that will impress buyers; eliminates clutter and crowding; and increases a home's curb appeal. Staged properties look professionally decorated and the listing photos will stand out from the competition and bring buyers through the door. Buyers will be able to see themselves living in the home and are willing to spend more on the perceived value of a home when its staged. A bit of extra effort upfront will lead to more showings, less time on the market, and a higher sale price.
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 how to get started, or are looking for an affordable spruce up using your existing furniture and decor, or need the whole kit and kaboodle 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 cluttered 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.
I was recently interviewed on a live broadcast by All Business Media FM's "Professional Roundtable" about my home staging services. Hear a bit about how I got into this business, what sets me apart in my industry, and some of the challenges I face in my interview here.
