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 ...

I get that response many times when I recommend to clients that they take down the valances above windows when they are preparing to put their home up for sale.I understand they may have been expensive but many times that was 20-30 years ago so you have gotten your money's worth. Even if they wer...

As a Home Stager I get that question a lot. There is a very short answer....Absolutely!Christmas is a widely celebrated holiday that most people understand. If it is your tradition I don't feel that you need to put that aside just for selling your home. The potential buyer will most likely also c...

It seems that wireless home printers are coming the way of the razor. There is little to no value in the hardware anymore. They can make it so cheaply by reducing the quality of the product that you can just replace it rather than fix it and not be ticked off about it.  You don't say: Hey, I spen...

This is a photo of a few people fishing off one of the docks at Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis that I did not publish in my personal blog today, along with the others. Somehow I overlooked this from the others, but the serenity of it struck me when I shot it. There are a lot of fish in Lake Nokomis,...

 Whoever heard of a cemetery that inscribes the deceased's name on a wall after cremeation but does not allow the scattering of ashes? Only 15 years ago we scattered my mother's ashes here, and engraved her name on the Winter Wall. Only 3 families are immortalized on this wall. Everybody else in ...

Step back and look at your fireplace objectively. Is it dated? In rooms that have fireplaces, the fireplace is normally the focal point of the room so ask yourself "Is my fireplace a good focal point?"If your fireplace has dated brick paint it....please! I know it is scary. I know you may like it...

It seems as though it is either a love or hate response when I ask that question to my design clients.The #1 reason people tend to not like them is "My mess will be out in the open for everyone to see." Or...."I will have to keep them neat all the time and that will be too much work."I get that, ...

Well the great thing about area rug rules is that you can break them! Really, it does come down to personal preference for both size and style but I want to address some common size options that you have. Although it is personal preference, I do believe there are times when a room can look odd if...

I was at a home yesterday doing a Home Staging Consultation and I ran into an issue that I see over and over again. Lack of light!Plain and simple.....buyers do not like dark houses. I think you could look at hundreds of feedback comments on homes and never see "The house just had too much natura...
