staging: Staging for Wildlife - 08/22/07 03:00 PM
My home is on a corner lot and my garage is under my house at the back. One winter morning I had just pulled out of the garage and as I pulled around the front of my house I was quite taken aback. Standing at my front door was a family of three deer looking as though they had come to visit. I stopped, rolled down my window and said hello. The deer turned their heads and looked at me as if to say hello back. There was no fear, not even a sign of skittishness. What a thrill that was! As (16 comments)
staging: Smelly Designs! - 06/04/07 05:39 PM
Check out the interesting segment (twenty-three, series VII) on HGTV's Decorating Challenge, where two featured designers, Oreet Fagen and Cherie Reitzel, utilized smelly materials in their designs. Cherie's garlic paint had the host, Rene Montpelier, emphatically stating that "THIS IS NOT FUNNY!" The "recipe" for the paint was supposed to have sand however, when the sand was not available, Cherie became creative and used garlic. In her private interview session, one of the participants invited the audience to come close to the TV, really close, as she was sure that the garlic had permeated the TV. Just watching the expressions of the (2 comments)
staging: Vacant, sterile, non-descript - staged and SOLD! - 06/02/07 06:46 PM
Staging a white, sterile, almost antiseptic environment to be a warm, inviting and appealing space was a challenge that I took on, the end results of which I am quite proud. This townhouse condo had been on the market for several months without any offers. At first I was going to introduce color, specifically red, however once the targeted market had been determined, the richness of browns and blacks became the obvious choice. While I was taking the after photos, my assistant took the opportunity for a break and relaxed on the sectional. When it was time to leave, he indicated that (22 comments)
staging: CHILDHOOD PROFILE - ADULT CAREER - 05/15/07 10:00 PM
I have been explaining to my mother the advantages of the different aspects of staging, in particular de-cluttering. Obviously she is taking this to heart as she is now cleaning out cupboards and drawers. As a result, she located a profile sheet (Kuder Preference Record Vocational) that I had completed in 1963. At that time, school counselors had students do the profiles so that the more they knew about themselves, the more opportunities they had to make wise plans for their future. The profile sets out interests in the areas of outdoor, mechanical, computational, scientific, persuasive, artistic, literary, musical, social services and clerical. How interesting (19 comments)
