  I love good design photos.  I love sharing photos on Pinterest, Facebook, and on my blog. If the photos aren’t mine, I always give proper photo credit to the publisher of the photo to let people know it isn’t my work, and to show that it’s something I admire, or something I am pointing out to my reader. When it comes to a stager’s website or portfolio, all photos representing their work should be theirs, not stock photos or photos of  furniture companies portfolios in which the rooms have been staged or designed by their company.  A professional stager's portfolio should reflect homes in which they have staged, or in which they have done interior styling or presentation boards. Using stock photos, or photos that represent a furniture company’s professional photos of various rooms is v...

  I recently had the opportunity to view a 'staged' model property  and one of the first things that struck my trained eye, was the fact that the room was rather small; and, unfortunately, the layout of the furniture seemed to actually accentuate that because it wasn't to scale and didn't seem to fit the room.  Second, the layout of the furniture, left a very small opening into which you had to enter the room in a single file sort of way to get to the seating area. This would not be good if you had several people in the room at one time. The arrangement, when standing in the the doorway/entryway of the home, does not show off the fireplace and tall ceilings, and draw your eye inward, but instead, your eye is visually stopped by the back of the sofa, and the view of the fireplace is bloc...

Every now and then I will have a client or two who hire us for a market preparation consult or staging services, only to justify their reasons why they don't need to do something we have advised them to do.  And, it goes something like this: Well I don't really need to do that because I won't be living here.  Yes, but your potential buyers will be, and they certainly do not want to have to pay top dollar and then come in and replace your old carpeting because of pet odors and stains or repaint the exterior because it hasn't been painted since 19_____.   More than likely, they won't offer you what you want or perhaps not put in an offer and the opportunity of a sale may be missed. I Can't Afford to Put Another Dime into This House.  Well, really you can't afford not to.  Compare the mini...

We had been thinking for a while that we wanted to offer an E Design Service, in addition to our other tiered services, for our long distance clients. That all happened by chance a littlle earlier than expected, when we received a phone call asking us to collaborate on a design for a long distance client.   Our first E design client wanted a worldly and curated look for his new digs - a British Colonial feel with a Native American influence.   Always up for a challenge, we obliged.  We gave him a "British Colonial Industrial"  look that is not only sophisticated and modern, but takes the elements of history to just the right level.  And, since the accesories are interchangeable and can easily be changed out, the furniture and other design elements can remain in place for a new redesign ...
