The Colour Coach - Decorating, Organizing, Downsizing, Staging, Real Estate
Decorating: 

 
The process in decorating can vary.  At times, it is similar to organizing or staging, but more focused on artistic details.  Many times though, it does incorporate organizing techniques along side any artistic endeavor.  As one can see by the photo sample below...techniques can definitely overlap.

Lately, I've discovered that single parents are calling upon my decorating services to help "warm up" their place, or to make it more "homey."  Showing them techniques to stay organized, or how to do an inexpensive "interior re-design," with sometimes just paint or a few feng shui adjustments in furniture placement, can really be helpful.

~  This customer had me help her organize many boxes from her parents, items from her past, and items she had in storage. As you can see, they kept getting shoved into the spare bedroom! ...

After a long process of sorting, purging and putting away; we then decorated.  Her contractor painted, after we chose wall colour (a pale sandy beige); and we had the chair reupholstered from a dark burgundy, to a soft buttery yellow in order to highlight the warm tones in the wood. She already had an antique matelassé bedspread and lace bed skirt, so we used that...

The end result was a restful retreat, highlighting her parents heirloom bedroom set from Italy.


 






















 
 

Staging:

~Staging for a sale...

This customer originally hired me to help pack, inventory and organize her boxes, as she was moving out-of-the-country. I was then asked to stage the home too.  We worked together to de-clutter, deep clean, re-arranged her furniture & details...and made the wall colours work.
