I normally see two schools of thought regarding artwork when I am assisting home owners in getting their home ready to hit the market. One is that all artwork should be off the walls and leave everything neutral. This I especially see if the home has just been painted and the seller is reluctant ...

Ahhh......I think it is finally Spring and with that comes an urge to redo a room or two in your home. An easy way to do that is with a paint color change or even changing a few accessories like throw pillows, accent pieces or artwork. I love Coastal Colors as they are so fresh you can almost sme...

A lot of people know what buyers want:Stainless Steel AppliancesOpen ConceptMove In Ready And so on.But it is just as important to talk about what buyers DON'T want.

I love the Parade of Homes and it starts today! Even though it doesn't feel like Spring in Minneapolis, the start of the Parade signals the start of the Spring Market and that brings hope that the days will become longer and trees should start to bud soon.  Tour 472 New Construction homes at all ...

Selling your home is not easy nor convenient. When you have children it is even more challenging and much more inconvenient.A common theme I run into on most Home Staging Consultations is toys. It seems as though young kids just have a lot of them. I'm sure it is all because of Grandma and Grandp...

It's been very popular for a few years....have you tried it? Chalk Paint? You see so many vintage shops selling old furniture that has been redone in chalk paint; and pop-up weekend shops carry many chalk painted pieces. I have bought a few and love them. Purchasing the finished product always se...

If you are building or remodeling a home, there is a chance that you may have come across these abbreviated letters. But many of my clients just starting the process get a blank look when I say "Have you considered LVT?" LVT stands for Luxury Vinyl Tile. When I mention the word vinyl I sometimes ...

I ran into this situation this week while doing a Home Staging Consultation. The home owner had filled every room with Fall decor. Table tops, baskets of pumpkins on the floor, little scarecrows hanging here and there, towels with leaves hanging in the bath.   There is a right and wrong way to en...

Most people associate Home Staging with the dreaded 'D' word. Declutter! They think that a Home Stager will come in and tell them what they need to take out and remove.That is part of it but most of my home staging consultations also include tips for the homeowner of items to purchase to make the...

There are a couple things I see in the summer when doing Home Staging Consultations that many times need to be addressed and are super easy to correct. 1. Cobwebs   For most of us, we go in and out of our homes through the garage door, very rarely using the front door or even taking a look at it....

In my previous post I showed the incredible transformation of a mudroom. Check out "A Mudroom Makeover" if you missed it. Now I want to show the transformation of the laundry room right next door that was done at the same time.Laundry rooms do not need to be boring and just for function.  In fact...

I know the kitchen is the most important room in the house but the mudroom and laundry room get so much traffic and use that most people don't want them to be dingy.Renovating these rooms may not be on the top of a homeowner's list but I have to say that it can not only make you happy as a homeow...

Everyone has a vision of their 'dream home'. It's different for every person and my job as a designer is to understand my client's vision and assist them in achieving it. A few years ago I met a couple that were selling their home.

Most of the clients that I have worked with have heard that question from me. Many get a puzzled look on their face and some get downright scared. Especially the men!I usually throw out that question when I am talking to them about their lighting. Lighting is a key factor whether you are staging ...
