I’m Kathy Regini, owner of A Change Of Space. I specialize in home staging, redesign (aka styling), and remodeling.
My formal education in Fine Arts taught me about color, proportion & balance. A decade in fashion merchandising creating in-store displays and window vignettes for fashion boutiques & department stores, gave me a wealth of experience with props & staging.
I decided to pursue design in 2006 and began creating interior environments. My home in Boulder, Colorado was soon featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. More recently, my work was featured on the cover of Boulder Lifestyles magazine.
Redesign/Styling draws on the fundamentals interior design, but incorporates most of the big pieces people already own. I introduce fresh elements such as updated paint color, lighting, art and accessories, and also reposition existing furniture for improved layout. Most clients already own several good items, but need help pulling it all together.
I try to create spaces that reﬂect my clientsʼ personality & lifestyle. Itʼs not enough for a home to look beautiful: it has to work for all who live there… itʼs about understanding how spaces will be used. I carefully consider everything already in a home, as I believe you should be surrounded by the things you love. But…I also help pare down items that do not enhance your life! I ﬁnd most people prefer relaxed rooms with style, but simple in design. I want my clients to love coming home and spending time there. It gives me great pleasure to see the renewed enjoyment of a space.
Staging is another big part of what I do. Most of us are emotionally attached to our homes and when it comes time to sell, it’s difficult to be objective on how to make a house look its best. I don’t think people realize what a powerful marketing tool staging is. Most buyers start their search on-line, and are quickly turned off by photos of cluttered, dark homes, or the bare images of vacant properties. Staging provides eye catching, on-line images that are updated, bright and spacious.
Last, I help navigate the endless possibilities associated with Remodeling and Renovation. Although everyone looks forward to enjoying that chef’s kitchen or relaxing spa master bathroom retreat, space planning and choosing materials & colors along the way can be a daunting task, and I really enjoy making this process easier for my clients.
