Many times when I am in a client's home I notice a few things about the dining room. One of those things is the height that their light fixture is hung above the table. Most of the time it is too high.  In the photo to the right I feel the light is too high but it also is too large for the table....

I found the amazing site for things to do with your dog and I am not exaggerating when I say it got me (and my dog and hubby) through the Polar Vortex!   The site is called Sidewalk Dog. The opening sentence on their site is: "Sidewalk Dog Media is a cause-based company with a simple mission: To ...

This isn't the most fun topic to address, it's a little stinky. Okay really I had to say that! :) But seriously, when you are selling your home you need to address any odors that may be present. This is a tough one because many of us don't smell an odor in our own home. Or we smell it when we fir...

It's finally summer and with the brutal winter that occurred throughout most of the upper Midwest and beyond, people want to be outside. When working with sellers, one of the things I advise them on during a Home Staging Consultation is to treat almost any outdoor living space as additional squar...

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...

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...
