What is One Day Decorating?
The art of creating a beautiful room combining what the client already has with color, shopping and creativity. Although this is certainly decorating, the key difference is the surprise element for the client as you don’t have them pre-approve every purchase as you would with full-service decorating.
What is Redesign? Using what the client already has to change a space with placement and creative applications.
What is Home Staging? The art of preparing a house for sale by maximizing the selling features of the house. It is critical that the staging provider not only understands good design principles but also the target and housing market as it pertains to the property.
