No Cost - Redesign Success

Home Stager with Staged to WOW Home Staging & Redesign

Redesign makeovers are so much fun. It's great to give a client a fresh new look when only using their existing furniture and decor. Recently I met with a couple that had a lot of African art they liked very much.

Living room before

However thing were scattered throughout the home. Some of this art was in the hallway, some in the office on bookshelves and furniture was in the living room and office.

Hallway art display before






They have a large office that is just off the foyer and a section of the office just had a couple filing cabinets and a small desk that wasn't being used anymore on one side of the room.


Redesigned Office sitting area

With just a little rearrangement they now have an inviting sitting area that highlights the artwork they love.

It sounds like you really have a passion for what you do.  Do you do any internet consulting.  I am thinking I send you a few pictures and you give me some advice.  Think about it and give me a ball park price.  I need some ideas and have not been impressed with what I get from locals here in Lexington.  So much of what they do is sterile and lifeless in my opinion.

Paul - Yes you're right I LOVE what I do. I haven't done any long distance consulting but I'm open to talking with you more to see what we could work out. For my consultations I normally do a home tour and take photos then work my design plan at my office from those photos. Then I go back and with the room makeover plan and make the changes. 


Charles - Thanks for the compliment.

Well I have never seen so much African art in one space.  You did what the clients wanted and did it well.

You're right Wendy it is a lot for one small space but that's what they wanted. I followed up a few days after the makeover and they told me they love it and can't believe how much more they enjoy their office now.

Jacki - I traveled to Africa for a month 4 years ago and brought home a whole suitcase filled with African Art and display it on my built - ins. I love the look and it's a wonderful reminder of my amazing journey through Tanzania and Kenya! I'm sure your clients loved you work! Welcome to Active Rain and I look forward to seeing more of your posts!

Jackie- good to see you here!  I love the art as well and it's nice to have it in one place so it can be appreciated.
