With a Little Help from a Pro…
Have you ever struggled with a do-it-yourself (DIY) interior decorating project? You thought it would be simple and straightforward, but somehow, once you dove in, you felt as if you were in over your head.
Or you weren’t sure of your choices. And once it was done, it didn’t quite turn out the way you’d hoped it would.
As a home stager, my favorite thing to do is to collaborate with homeowners who want to do their own redecorating but do so with the design guidance of an expert. It’s so much easier and a lot more fun when you have a decorating partner to bounce ideas off of, go shopping with, or help you hire the perfect contractor.
And the result? Beautiful.
There are not enough words to say how much I love my new space. Thank you for your patience, guidance, and good humor through it all.”Frances B.
Here’s how we can work together to make your home as beautiful and functional as possible.
We start with a 2-hour “working” consultation in your home during which we can review any projects in process or already completed and discuss the changes you want to make. I’ll also use this time to get clear on your likes and dislikes and your long-term vision for your home.
This initial consultation is a total “brain dump” of ideas, not only for a specific space but for all the spaces in your home. Each room is interconnected and understanding how they work together, as well as how you live in your home, is key.
My goal is to help as much (or as little) as needed and give you the courage to move forward with your ideas, make cost-effective decisions, and create beautiful, functional spaces that are ideal for you.
One of my favorite sayings is, “Fail to plan, plan to fail.” By consulting with a professional before you spend a dime on decorating, you will be able to make smart decisions that will work for you now, in the future, and, of course, whenever you decide to sell.
