As much as I'd rather be the bearer of good news in these difficult financial times, I've read two articles in the past 24 hours that are must-read for all of us who work in home and design-related industries.  Many retailers that we can hardly imagine not being there are currently on the ropes, and may not make it much longer. And shelter publications that we've come to rely on for inspiration are also walking the plank. Here's the New York Times' article, "The Meltdown in Home Furnishings" http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/29/garden/29industry.html?partner=rss&emc=rss Similarly Time ran an article yesterday featuring some of the same companies, "Retailers on the Ropes: Can These Companies Survive?" http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1874532,00.html?xid=rss-topstories-cnnpa...

  Recently I had the opportunity to stage a bedroom inhabited by a pre-teen girl, complete with bright green walls that didn't harmonize with the rest of the home for sale. To complicate matters, I had less than 24 hours before the MLS photographer was to arrive! Certainly no time for painting walls... In addition the room had access to an outside deck that a previous owner had used for a hot tub, but had been unused for years. The room needed to be staged in a way that could give a nod to having a youthful (and fun!) occupant, but, among other things had to tone down the personalized wall color.  With the clock ticking (as it always is for stagers), a quick shopping trip at closing time yielded white bedding that would tone down the bright walls, but still infuse energy with graphic pr...

Mortgage companies all across the US have closed their doors. Actually, things are not as bad as they seem. There are still plenty of loan programs available to current homeowners, investors and first-time buyers. Despite what the news reports have been implying, there are actual senior loan officer's across the US, including myself,  who are reputable and are willing to take the time to talk to their clients and help them ...
