Why, Deep-Down, We Really ARE Ok with Halloween Candy and Corduroy in July

Home Stager with Owner, The Refreshed Home White Plains NY

...or bathing suits in January, and Santa in September.

Simply, we get bored. Our impatient inner three-year old is easily distracted, always looking past what current and right in front of us, certain something newer, shinier, and more fun is just around the corner.

And as much as our outward adult selves will bemoan the fact that retailers seem to push the envelope further and further each year, truth is, they wouldn't keep doing it if it didn't attract (more) buyers.

Happily, buying a home is about the same thing: Hope, and the future. Buyers are those eternal three year olds...always looking ahead for something new, and more wonderful.

This Westchester County Home Stager understands the value of engaging buyers, and knows how to make it happen. Guiding sellers on specific choices, and when selecting the accessories to make their house the shiniest penny.

  • January 1st is not too soon to take down holiday decorations.
  • February is not too soon to start a window sill herb garden.
  • March is not too early to uncover and wash down the patio furniture, or search for yellow pansies.
  • April is perfect for changing out bed coverings to lighter weight, more brightly colored bed coverings, or starting to turn over those garden beds.

See what I mean?

If you are planning to sell, have a talk with The Refreshed Home first. Together we'll created a natural and timely plan to get your house noticed, and SOLD!

Our spaces affect us profoundly...and so many other parts in our life fall into place when our spaces and possessions serve us in the best way they can. But getting there is much more than a pursuit of pleasing aesthetics.


Decorating and Staging are different, but much of the skill sets overlap, and each creates unique solutions that considers the needs, goals, resources, expectations, hopes and dreams of each client.

Bettering Westchester, Putnam and lower Fairfield counties since 1981, The Refreshed Home works collaboratively, and brings a thoughtful approach to the creative process. Proud to make a difference, as well as make a living. Offering specialty services such as remote and buyer consults, listing photo/video styling, guided and accompanied shopping, and accessory rental. We get in, get out, and you get on with your life.  Talk to me TODAY about how we can better your space!

Great points Marie and soo true! When I see the faux pumpkins out in this 100+ Texas degree heat it makes my heart skip a beat for the cooler temps of the Fall and the fun it brings.
