Weekly tip for Interior Decorating and Home Staging:

There are a few tricks in my toolbox. The three items I can not do my job without:

1. Mr Clean magic Eraser – sometimes repainting is not necessary if you can get the marks off the walls and trim.

2. Blue tape – use for marking where art needs to be hung and even tagging items that need to be removed from the room for staging.

3. Febreze – love that stuff! I use the simple fresh scent. (I have 2 teenage boys – can’t live without this stuff!)

Update for a Quicker Sale

We did two things in this kitchen to make it rise to the price point of the desired sale price.

1. removed the dated floral wallpaper and paint

2. Replace the mixed matched appliances with stainless steal

Selling house is about meeting – or preferably going above  – buyers expectations. What is expected for the neighborhood and the price point? How can you make yours the best?

Home Staging works if you know what to do. I have been doing this full time for 13 years. (Please note: Watching HGTV does not make you an expert.)

I can help! Give me a call and we can get started. (716) 912-1581.

Weekly..well almost weekly Interior Design Tip:

If you look at a small paint chip and think that it is the perfect tone, remember that once it in on the wall (in a much larger context) the color will seem twice as bright as the chip appears.

That pretty soft butter yellow will look like a screaming school bus.

That off-white with a little bit of yellow cast to it will look like a soft butter yellow on the walls.

Painting Tip for the week

Choosing paint can be really hard. Who wants to paint it twice?

If you have a paint chip you are considering, be sure to hold it up rather than setting it on a table or counter. Light will hit vertical and horizontal surfaces differently.

If you want help picking out the perfect paint color, don’t hesitate to contact me.

I came across this article will web surfing (aka waiting to pick up one of my sons)

I don’t know this blogger but I really like how she thinks. I have a lot of clients who call me because they have a bad case of decor-paralysis.

Sometimes all you need is a couple quick answers to your decorating questions:

InBox Snap Chat

or maybe just to chat with a professional on phone who can confirm (or  steer you away from) a decorating decision.

Dial-a-SnapShot

Try some ideas from the above article or use one of the helpful services to get yourself unstuck.

Home Decorating: Creating the Room That You Simply Adore

createhomeadore

It is sensible to select the appropriate things to make your home look and feel good because in the end you will simply love that room and want to stay in it for long periods of time. Select items that ignite your senses making you feel comfortable and then you will have a home that becomes a personal retreat or haven. Below are ways to create that adorable room which is surrounded by the things that you love.

Eliminate Clutter

The ideal way to be engulfed with the things you love is to eliminate the things that you don’t love or things that cause clutter (things that you don’t need). The eye gets confused when things are out of place and it is also discouraging to have an item that you cannot find among the clutter. So, it is best to spend several minutes to go through your belongings and clear away things that have no essential place in your immediate space or life. Don’t just hold on to things for sentimental reasons. If you have to do that, then it is best to put it away carefully until it is time to use it. For items not used for several years, it is time to throw it out or give it away. Free yourself of the clutter.

Select the Ideal Color

The simplest and most affordable way to alter the look of a particular room is to paint its walls. If your personality is quiet and conservative, you may want to select a warm color to positively control your mood. You may want a relaxing and soothing room. So select a color that you would see in a spa. Or you can just choose your favorite color.

Comfortable Furniture

There is absolutely no reason why you should own uncomfortable furniture in your home. Why do you sit in a stiff sofa and watch television, when you don’t have to? Why sleep on a sinking bed, when you can spend the night on a contoured mattress? Throw out that old sofa or that outdated chair. Don’t keep old furniture for sentimental reasons. Select the best quality that you can afford. This is especially true when it comes to chairs, sofas, bedding and pillows.

Picture Frames

There is nothing more that can make you smile than family portraits on the wall. Looking at those pictures can bring back long time memories, making you love that room even more. You can put up pictures of holiday celebrations, family gathering and travel highlights.

Handy Items

In each room, make sure that you have things within reach such as a small heater under a desk, which will come in handy during the winter months. A small fan would also be useful when the temperature gets warm in your home office. If you love to read in the evening, a nice lounge chair and reading lamp will make you more comfortable.

Conclusion

You now see how just a few additions or withdrawal can turn a room into a comfortable space. By surrounding yourself with comfort, relaxation and convenience using the things you love the most, you can turn your home into the haven that you desire.
