Dear Creative Concepts:  I need a Home Make-over!  I’d love to have a home I “fall in love with” every time I walk in the door.  For me – finding cute home decor is the easy part – having it look great when I get it home can be a challenge.  I buy things that are so cute and then get home and thi...

  Wondering where home decor colors are heading?  We love Benjamin Moore Colors (and the coordinating Pottery Barn products).  Here's a great blog on the color forecast for 2011 by Benjamine Moore!  We've used lots of smokey purple tones in our design work, but maybe we need to add it to more of ...

I’ll be getting in trouble with some real estate agents over this one, but I have strong opinions on the “carpet allowance” question! What does “carpet allowance” say to me?

Last week a local blog (Desperately Seeking Salem) advised:     “you will want to read this local business’s excellent blog about what it does to make messes into eye candy.”     Eye candy . . . mmmmmm.  I like it!   While it’s not a description I’ve ever used when describing interior design or ...

Professional Home Stagers get a work out nearly every day stripping. This work is not for those looking for an easy job.  It can mean long hours and lots of hard, demanding work. Come with me and see what we do!         We strip away dirt - and make sure home sellers have their homes sparkling. F...

At our warehouse, we have a wall of pillows  — sorted usually by color and crammed into our racking by our skilled associate, Judy Klassen.  Judy is organizer extraordinnaire and I would post a photo, but I made a mess of them yesterday pulling inventory for a job and she would not be happy to ha...

Dear Creative Concepts: Is it worth the money to buy "high hiding" primer or just do an extra coat or paint when painting over bold colors? Sincerely, Dreading to Paint Dear Dreading: I totally understand how you feel!  I've hesitated in the past to purchase a "special" primer -- but know that us...
