I have been an interior designer for over 30 years and I love teaching my clients the principles I use while decorating their home. The home staging trend in residential real estate is a great way to reach more people every day and what I enjoy the most is they are learning the basics of good design through staging. It is my dream for every person to know the joy and pride of living in a decorated home.
After reading this post you are going to wonder how I ever became an Interior Designer but I did. They say that people become what they need in this life and I am no exception!   It didn't matter to me that there wasn't a back door leading to the back yard.

I know that Maureen Henry is in love with her Quick Books" and I wouldn't want to take that away from her, but for me, I have tried every program out there for many of my businesses and get stuck.

This quote from WJS clarified exactly what I need to do for the next few weeks and maybe it will speak to you too. "Whe...
I was just reading an article from my Google alerts and it is very relevant to what we can represent here in AR. It shows what our focus should be and could be for each other as well as our viewing audience. With the influx of new members jumping on board, it takes awhile to get oriented to all t...
A simple change can make all the difference in the world.Nothing is uglier than a bottle of Dawn Liquid Soap sitting on the kitchen counter or a box of Tide on your dryer.            The first sign of good taste in decorating is decorative containers for your household supplies, cleaners, and per...
Procrastination is the limbo of reality. Decisions have power because the Universe is waiting for direction. As soon as a decision is made, every available resource to make that thing happen is called into action. Be patient, be kind, be aware.I is so important to know the choices we make because...
Making headboards is easy to do. I have made dozens for model homes myself so if I can do it, anyone can. The following is a standard style. You can make a template out of newspaper for the top in any style you want but for the sake of simplicity...I will use a simple arch.    What you will need:...
Just to set the record straight, most of you already know that preparing a home for resale is something I did as "favors" for Realtors and/or client referrals and is not something I did as my core business. I realize that most stagers have gone through a training program that approaches this nitc...
