Each morning I wake up to these adorable little furballs and they help start the day off on the right foot!                               Gracie & Gigi, in the top photos, were sent to our local SPCA from an overcrowded one elsewhere in our province.  They apparently never knew their Mom.  One o...

My husband has a great sense of humour which is one of the main reasons I married him.  He is also more forgiving than I am at times, which is another quality I love about him - especially now when I have been procrastinating about laundry. One of my favourite things is waking up early together a...

This is a great post dealing with a pet peeve of mine as a home stager.  It is beyond me why a realtor would not offer his client the option of home staging BEFORE recommending a price reduction.

The saying stayed in my mind and I looked everywhere for it, and t...

Whether a re-design or staging, art is an important part of creating a special look in a room. While shopping for a client, I came across some very inexpensive art which I thought would be fun to use.  It cannot be used in all homes, or all rooms; however there is a place for the wall art I disco...

I am a home stager on the Sunshine Coast of BC, a lovely 40 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver.   Following #1 highway along the upper levels, we turn off to the right for the ferry terminal, while the other traffic carries onto Squamish and Whistler. This is beautiful country...

Wherever I got the gift of being able to visualize the end result for a room that needs help, I am very thankful.  I love taking sad rooms to attractive rooms with creativity and some $$ through staging. This pathetic bathroom became this charming new bathroom with the obvious changes required, a...
