On Thursday April 26 (10:30am Pacific/1:30pm Eastern) another episode featuring our home decorating and design work will air on HGTV.  This particular episode, one of five that we did, highlights the home search of a newly-married young couple.  They find a home in Sherwood, Oregon (a suburb south of Portland) that fits them perfectly ... but they need master bedroom furniture:portland oregon home staging on HGTV

"Stephanie and Brett have been living with her parents since the wedding, but now they must find their first place before her mom and dad begin remodeling their home, leaving these first-time home buyers with no place to sleep. It looks like a short sale will be the answer to all their problems -- until the deadline looms before the short sale deal is done."

Here's how the master bedroom looked "Before" when they first saw this house before making an offer .... and  photos of the "sneak preview After" shots. Be sure to watch for the "surprise" at the end!! home staging sherwood oregonportland oregon home staging expertsoregon home stagershome staging portland oregon on HGTV

Hi Joanna ~ Not really LOL!!!  But it was fun to do these shows, even with the tight budget and short time frame.

Hi Cindy ~ This particular episode shows them looking in a couple of different suburbs but they settled on a house in Sherwood.  Thanks for your support!!

Hi Karen ~ Yes, I interviewed them at length about their furniture preferences, styles, colors, etc so that the "surprise" is something that they're sure to like!  Sometimes we had more than one meeting, it depended on the time frame provided.

Congratulations on your success.  I just came across your blog and realized that I missed your HGTV show which just aired this morning.    You obviously have great ideas and a talent for creative design.  Portland is lucky to have you and you deserve the recognition which have received.  Best wishes.

We used to watch HGTV all the time.  But with 6 boys we kind of gave up home.  It is more of a White Trash look.  Or you know your a redneck if . . .
