This time of year is bittersweet for me, I LOVE summer and never want it to end, but I know soon the cooler air will be creeping in, my pool will close trading flip flops for boots…yes we’ll be saying goodbye to summer soon, so how will invite fall into your home? In a few weeks I’ll be swapping out my beach theme decor for more fall inspired accessories throughout my home. Let me share with you five ways I decorate for the fall that you can use whether you’re selling or staying in your home.

Overcome 5 Common Myths About Home Staging

Yes, I snapped this picture out on a home staging consultation the other day! The real estate agent made the appointment and paid for the service because he knew the home wouldn’t sell in it’s current state. This was the master bedroom located on East 84th Street in New York City and the agent was correct this home was in dire need of some updating, however, the seller was hesitant to use a home stager. I explained to the seller the benefits of home staging, provided home staging statistics and gave her my advice on how to instantly make this room stand out. Want to hear it?

Built My Summer Decor : She-Shed

This video was a collaboration video created by Cathryn Holt of Amateur Decorating Like a Pro we were asked to discuss what is our favorite summer past time to do, mine as well all know is tanning! I love the heat and spending my time outdoors at the beach or pool. The second part of this video we were asked to show-off a summer decor project we were working on and of course my project involves decorating a room, but this room is now an extension of our house. We created a she-shed, similar to a man cave but it’s for woman to have a spot in the home to call her own. In my she shed I used FLOR Carpet Tile to create a base on the floor. I used a dark gray commercial grade that will withstand the elements and last a long time. We spoke about using this […]
