I’m a big fan of white walls these days…pale gray and “greige” have seen their day and it’s time to move on. But sometimes you want  to add something more dramatic and different. Here you go, just in time for fall /winer to turn up the cozy! looks amazing with both white or cream and every tone in-between.

If all you have in your dining is a table and chairs because you do not have room for a buffet/sideboard, consider the bar cart. Super useful and attractive.

If you are putting in hardwood floors and are looking to add interest to your entry, consider adding an accent area with wood laid out in a chevron or herringbone pattern. There are also ready made medallions for this purpose.

Non Traditional Fall Decorating

Fall is almost here! This year, if you are up for a change, forego the traditional orange, yellow and red stuff, and add plum with neutrals  instead. It’s a little more modern and hip. Gather your cozy throws and cut branches, just maybe skip the orange pumpkins and yellow gourds!

Staging during Co-Vid

by kathyregini | Comments Off on Staging during Co-Vid

Now that the “stay at home” order has been lifted in Colorado, I am staging houses again! But the pandemic has changed the way I work….and I’m not just talking safety precautions. The pandemic has created the “work from home revolution” and my clients are asking me to stage home offices or even multiple work spaces because this is high on people’s lists right now. With on-line learning and parents working remotely, I need to show how a home will function for everyone who lives there. 

I started this business in 2007, when the recession was in full swing. Yet my business grew that year and every year since. Whether its a seller’s market or a buyer’s market, staging stays constant. A well styled home is critical to having it sell fast and for more money-that hasn’t changed!
