WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN WORKING WITH ME & QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE

What will I discuss with you during consultation?

  • Color (the most important element of the interior)

  • Architectural features: accentuate them, create them or changing them

  • Creating a focal (point if there is none)

  • Brighten up and making rooms appear larger when staging

  • Functionality, addressing problems

  • Purpose of the room

  • Trends (we can discuss)

  • Desire, what do you want to see in the room?

  • Staging or Decorating? Each will have their own approach

Considering your budget and priorities, I will do my best to give you the result you're looking for.

What will be in the written staging report?

  • suggestion of wall color

  • furniture settings

  • change of wall hangings

  • window treatments

  • minor repairs

  • cleaning services

  • room to room suggestions

  • how to make the house appear brighter and bigger

  • where to declutter

  • suggestions for needed updates 

Why is it necessary to update a home?

  • selling the house

  • change in technology

  • change in live style

  • growing family

  • house is outdated

  • new needs, like an office

will continuously challenge your home to adapt, but there is always a solution out there and I would love to help you with that!

Other reasons may be:

  • moving into a new home where the furniture you own don't fit.

  • Going smaller or bigger can be a challenge to decorate

  • selling your home you want to get the most for your investment and staging will do that. Best is to address all issues before a buyer looks at your house and has reason to negotiate.

How do I know what to do?

I have a certificate as a Home Stager and as a Color Expert.

I'm a Professional Organizer specialized in Residential Organizing & Household Management.

I have these qualifications plus many years of experience, let me make your life easier and your home beautiful!

What if I need advice myself?

I have the right resources at hand. I'm part of "The Decorologist" Kristie Barnett, groups:

  • Psychological Color Expert Group

  • Expert Psychological Stager Group

I'm also a member of:

  • RESA (Real Estate Staging Association)

  • NAPO (National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals)

These professional groups help me to continuously learn and broaden my knowledge. They help me find the right products or recourses and we support each other when needed.
