Okay, here's a little insight about another passion of mine. 

Ahh....the joy of spring in the air! Let's shake off winter and gear up for spring. Love this time of year when I can walk with my family and our dog Riley, to embrace the  breezes and warmth on my face, smell the flowers and play in the dirt, listen to the birds chirping and run barefoot through the grass. Sharing laughter, love and our can't buy these priceless treasures! We LOVE to be outdoors and during this season and the other 2 to follow after! Okay, I like winter too...because I love warm cozy fires and love to have snow ball fights with my family. ;)

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." ~ John Muir 

If you see me around the area in Charlotte, NC, don't be surprised to see me with my camera and tripod in my hand over the next few months! Below are "just" a few of the photos I took of springtime in Asheville, NC and at the Biltmore House. My husband and I love to spend time in Asheville, NC and riding on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  

Photography is another passion and hobby I like to do, my favorite photos to take are portrait, decorating/design, architectural, animals, nature and landscapes. So I will share a very diverse group of pictures throughout my time of writing and blogging....I'm not perfect, still lots to learn. Although, "photography is like art...the beauty to capture is in the eye of the beholder."

"I thank god for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees & for the blue dreams of sky & for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes." 
~ E.E. Cummings

Spruce Up Your Home In The Carolinas With Color!

Color Consultations

Benefits of hiring a Color Consultant in Charlotte NC.

Spring is in the air, we want to spruce up our homes and what better way to do it by adding color!

Many color theorists throughout history have attempted to 'assign' colors to particular human emotions because they believe in the simple fact that a certain color can create a certain emotion in people. As well, there is an increasing number of studies linking colors to specific human responses. Many color consultants believe that the colors used in an environment may have a significant impact on the performance of people within that environment.

While perceptions of color are subjective, there are some color effects that have universal meaning. As an example let's use the color green. Green is thought to help heal and relieve stress. Green is often used in decorating for its calming effect. As an example of that; guests anxiously waiting to appear on a television program, often wait in a "green room".

Just consider how green is used in language: 'green thumb'... 'go green'... 'the grass is greener'...

Color Consulting... In the color world, warm colors are known as red, orange and yellow. Cooler colors would be green, blue and violet. Color can influence mood, alter energy, or affect a space's visual temperature. Depending on the feeling and energy that is desired in a particular room or space is what will guide you to the proper side of the color wheel. If you want a bright energetic feel, or a calm serene atmosphere, I will help you through the process of discovering your own personal palette of color! We can work together to change or add color to a single room, or change the interior or exterior color of your entire home. It's really up to you how far you want to go with it.

Interior Room Redesign & Home Decorating in Charlotte NC homes!

You can have home decorating that will WOW your friends and neighbors!

It is important when doing any decorating on a budget that you plan your home decor. What furniture do you need? What color scheme do you want for each room? What style do you want? How much do I want to spend decorating the room?

When planning your design, work from the largest area of the room to the smallest. For instance, start with walls, window treatments, floors, and furnishings and then finish with accessories. It is important to remember the larger the decorating element, the more impact it will have on the finished design. Also remember that home decorating doesn't have to be expensive, you can simply take something "old and make it new again" by taking furniture and accessories from other rooms in the home and rearranging them.

    As a professional home decorator in Charlotte, NC I begin by taking an inventory of items you have and make a list of new items that may be needed to complete the room. I will customize an affordable budget decorating plan for you. My team and I will rearrange and organize what you already own to create a new look. You will receive my professional advice on how to reuse, refurbish and/or paint existing furniture. Plus I shop my resources to find bargain designer furniture at great prices while keeping you on budget, and provide tips on buying furniture and accessories that are classic and worth the investment.

Decorating your home on a budget can be as simple as painting your walls & changing hardware on cabinets, doesn't mean the room needs entire makeover, sometimes simple changes can make a huge impact!

Spring Has Sprung....Is Your Home Show Ready?

Real Estate Staging homes in Charlotte NC & SC!
 The investment of staging in your property is less 
than a price reduction on your property.

Is your home "Show Ready"? These 5 low cost tips will get you started on turning your house into a "show home". This is critical because if you want to get the most money for your home and sell more quickly, you need potential buyers (and their agents) to feel it's a "hot property". Staging is not the same as creating a usable space that you will enjoy. Instead, staging is the art of making your home appealing to the masses (or as many people as possible) instead of for you.
It is a valuable tool and the statistics show that in today's market and economy, staging your house would help to sell it faster and for more money!

True home staging doesn't address the issues of comfort and usability...instead, it address the best way to make the rooms look the largest by increasing the open floor plan. Whether it is elimination of extra furniture (ie.. side tables, floor pillows, large bulky furniture and replacing them with smaller furniture and larger art work, mirrors (to enlarge rooms) and wall decor. By picking items up off the floor and making the walls tell the story the rooms visually are larger and more open.

Creating an atmosphere void of overly-dramatic details (deep colored walls, etc.) can help more people imagine themselves living in the space and helps them to avoid the feeling that there is much work (painting, repairs) that would have to be done before they move in. These changes equal $$$$ and that decreases potential offer prices should an offer be made.

Staging is not decorating; therefore it has nothing to do with a sellers personal taste. Decorating, personalizes a home. Staging to sell, is de-personalizing it. It is so important for potential buyers to be able to visualize themselves living in the home, that you want to sell them.

1. Get rid of clutter and de-clutter your home! 
Pick one closet or area at a time so the task isn't as daunting. Look at every item with a very critical eye and ask yourself why you're keeping it. Clean! Clean! Clean! Appliances should sparkle even if you're not including them with the house. After all, you might throw them in later as a negotiating tool. Counter tops, taps, sinks and bathtubs should be shiny and free of water spots. Remember clean windows let in more light and look newer. A very clean home leaves the impression that the house is well cared for. This helps put buyers at ease, especially a first time buyer who may be worried about the responsibilities of owning a house.
Remember that how you live in your home and how you sell your house are two entirely different things. You're going for a "show home" and creating that "First Impression".

2. Consider the curb appeal.
Create the "slam on the breaks curb appeal! Landscaping is nice, but not in everyone's budget. At minimum, lawns should be freshly mowed, leaves raked, or snow shoveled. Consider a hanging or potted plant for the entrance. Sweep the porch, deck and all walk ways and ensure garbage and recycling are tucked neatly away from the front of the house. 

3. Walk into your rooms with "open eyes". 
Walk into every room and check where your eye is drawn (better yet, ask a critical friend or family). If the eye is drawn to the chipped white paint on the door frame, take some "white out" and fill it in. If it's those old nail holes in the wall, see if you can hang a picture to cover them or repair them! Remember potential buyers don't want to see this.

4. Let in some air and light in.
Open some windows! There is nothing worse than walking into a stuffy house or one that smells of smoke and odors. It might be mood lighting to you, but if you're trying to sell your home, keep it bright! Dimly lit rooms tend to look small and dingy, especially during the day. If you have a particularly dark room, consider investing in a floor lamp that will bounce light off the ceiling.

5. Don't forget fresh flowers.
Spring is in the air and flowers are starting to bloom; look in your yard, ask a neighbor or relative if you can pick flowers from their yard. Visit local farmers markets and local markets. Discount stores like Super Wal-mart and Target sell inexpensive flowers. Check with a local florist to see if they are "getting rid" of flowers. You don't need to spend a fortune to have fresh flowers throughout your home.

Now, does your home look "Show Ready"?
Step back and look at your home with the eye of a highly critical buyer.
