Home Staging, Decorating & Improvement

Beach house decorating ideas Sea Isle City, NJ
A beautiful, organized home is nice to look, but a beautiful, organized home also helps us save time, reduces our stress level, improves the flow of energy throughout the home, helps us feel comfortable and happy, and will sell quicker at a higher price. 

A home staging course and Feng Shui classes taught me lots of skills to create a neat and tidy home that is arranged just right. 
I am a Certified Home Staging Expert and can help you rearrange, organize and freshen up your house to show off it's best assets.  

Whether you are selling or you just want a fresher looking home on a budget. I will visit your home, walk through room by room and provide you with a written improvement plan for each room. The plan can be DIY or I can stage it for you. I can also help you with the over whelming task of reducing the stuff that has accumulated over the years in preparation for selling your home.

My Style
My little Cape Cod style house is an ongoing home improvement project. The goal is the reach Better Homes & Gardens status. We have a looooong way to go!!! I like my house to feel easy, welcoming and full of love. My decorating style is an eclectic blend of vintage and contemporary, beachy, cottage and farmhouse styles with a touch of whimsy. 

Sounds quirky, but it fits our home very well!

I've got a thing for vintage pottery and glassware. Sometimes, I get lucky at a flea market and find a nice piece at a bargain price. Vintage things are fascinating to me. I like to think about who may have owned them and what it was like in the time period the things were made.

Sometimes, I know who owned them and they are very special to me. My grandmothers' King's Crown glassware and Fostoria glassware make my holiday table sparkle. Those beautiful vintage things bring back fond childhood memories of dinners at both of my grandmother's houses.

There's always something to fix, improve, paint and decorate at the house. I love paint by the way. It's so easy to change the whole feel of a room with just a simple coat of paint and it's fast. I've waited for my husband to leave the house in the morning, then I gotten the paint can out, prepped, painted the room and put everything back in place before he returned home. That way there's no flack about the color. It's done and that's it! It took him 3 weeks to even notice that the dining room was painted. 😂

I also enjoy a furniture fixup. My sewing skills sure do come in handy when it comes to furniture rehab and decorating. It's amazing what new stain, fresh paint and pretty fabric can do for a piece of furniture! I painted this tired old chair with white chalk paint and gave it a bright new cushy seat. I love it now!

Now you know a little about me and my style. Let me show you some room restyling I have done!

Room Styling Before and After
This is a bedroom I did on a tight budget. The old wall to wall carpet was removed revealing a paint spattered hardwood floor. The floor was cleaned up then, a white shag area rug was added. Quarter round is still needed to properly finish the baseboard molding. The old wicker light fixture was replace with a more modern drum style light fixture. Clutter was removed and the furniture was rearranged to create balance.

Ottoman Update

A pretty fabric cover and pillows gave the sad old ottoman a fresh new look.

Dining Room Brightening
This dining room tends to be a little too dark most of the day. Removing clutter and extra chairs, raising the blinds and stripping away the dark tablecloth all help to brighten the room. Ultimately, a paint color change adds cool bright color.
