I had a lot of fun working with my client, Susan, in Belmont, NC.  She already has a beautiful home but she needed some help completing some accent pieces in her Master Bedroom.  She desired a custom round table-cloth, an accent pillow & slip covers for 2 foot-stools in the room.  I looooved the green & blue plaid fabric she chose for these items.  We added a double layered gray-blue Sheer to break up the plaid in different areas.  I loved that she re-used old footstools and a Bentley Rocking chair that she had in the attic “since the 70’s”!!!   Susan also chose a beautiful Floral Canvas from a local Belmont shop to hang above her bed.  I really love the mixture of floral prints, with plaid, and a bit of sheer for added texture.  I could live in a blue & green world forever!

In between Interior Design Projects I’m having fun making these totes and slowly filling up my Etsy Shop online.  These are great fabric totes that are lightweight and roomy… perfect for any woman on the go!  Just purchased a monogram machine this week… now I just need to learn how to use it! 🙂

This client desired a more cozy and pulled together look for this very large family area. She wanted neutral tones with pops of her favorite colors–mustard yellow and sea green. The space needed to be baby-friendly as well as budgeted for under $1000. Thanks to Rugs USA online & IKEA… she can get started on most of the major pieces!

After Home Staging, this beautiful living room now feels cozier and has more purpose. Updating furniture pieces and placing them in smaller vignettes, helps to give the buyer a better idea of how they can use a room. The square rug helps to tie everything together.

What is Home Staging?

Home Staging is decorating your house to sell.  It will help you sell faster and get more money for your home.

In a buyers market the available listings exceed demand

Higher inventory of homes means that houses for sale tend to sit for longer periods— house hunters can afford to take their time and be more demanding about what they buy.

When buyers have time and selection on their side, they know they are in control of the situation and can be very picky. The only way to motivate them to take action and make an offer now is to make the home so desirable that they don’t want to risk losing it.

Obviously, the homes that show the best will sell faster and for more money.

It’s easy to see that when there are too many homes on the market the staged home will sell faster than competitors that don’t show as well. Buyers make the buying decision when they make an emotional connection with a house. Why not make that easier by romancing them!

The Before Picture

I received this Vanity in good shape and decided to add a girly touch to it.  The inspiration for the design came from a Ribbon of Roses I found at a fabric store.  The roses are the perfect shade of soft and subtle pink that remind me of the ballet.  I’m hoping a little girl will have lots of sweet memories with this piece!

Roses and lace to outline any child's beautiful face in the mirror.

The after picture!

Pink slip cover with Ribbon of Roses and Ruffles!

Hand painted pink accents, and dainty gold ribbon.

I love helping people on a budget.  It forces the creative juices to flow!  This simple slip-cover for a bachelor pad helps to re-vive this stained & worn down ottoman for the client on a very low-budget.  Best part was….the fabric was from a consignment store dress!

Ottoman make-over!

I love this idea for Summer entertainment.  These flowers are from L.A. Botanicals, but the idea is mixing candles with flowers of varying heights.  The rose petals create a natural table runner and the Ti leaves placed in each vase beautifully hide the stems in these clear glass vases.  Would be fun to surprise your best girlfriends with something like this one day, right?
