Oprah Gets It

Last week or so I was watching Oprah and she had her favorite resident decorator on her show, Nate Berkus. He unveiled a few makeovers and in between when Oprah was trying to get a rise out of her audience she more or less said,

I believe your home should rise up to you.

This really stuck with me...and I wanted to share it. For even the small cost of a great handbag, this is possible. And in the same way most of us enjoy nice clothing, shoes or a great suit and certainly we know presentation is important so to should we take pride in our home. When we invite someone into our home it says volumes about who we are.

There could be lots of beautiful interiors out there - homes would sell more quickly and real estate sales and home staging would benefit greatly!

Help spread the word...It's a great sentiment even for listing appointments, home staging consults and one I will definitely share.

Fantastic point and thanks for sharing it.  Seeing this and judging by the comments in a few different blogs I beleive that home stagers are begining to see their golden era in the current market.  If, as a group, stagers show their stuff I believe it can become an American staple in real estate and almost a requirement.

Its all about ROI, Return on investment. Some homes may definately benefit, and some are not worth it at all. I guess it all has to be done on an individual basis. Thanks for the info on Au Courant Home

I too would like some of Oprah's money but I still beleive its NOT all about the money, how your treat your home and the people around you. It is about effort and a and attitude!
