Kids Are Clients Too - And Tell You How They Feel!

Home Stager with Synergy Staging ~ specializing in vacant home staging

Our Portland Home Staging company provides other services beyond home staging. One of those services is color consultations, either for home owners preparing their house for sale, or for those wanting to live in a new look.

At a recent color consulation we heard one of the funniest lines of all time.

When we got to the kids bedrooms our client wanted to go with warm colors that the kids wouldn't grow out of.  She also said that her kids wouldn't really care what color their rooms were. Oops! We had just about finished selecting all the colors when the kids came home from school. Of course they were wondering what we were doing in their bedroom. After explaining that we were selecting new colors for their wall, the youngest boy said that he wanted black or army green! You can imagine that got a big NO from mom.

So he then asked what color was going to go on the wall. We showed him the color chip with the approved choice.

Cartoon Face

He looked up at us and said, "My room is going to be the color of skin!" We couldn't help ourselves from laughing and he kept saying it over and over.

We went back today for a follow up visit. His room did end up with the approved color - but he compromised and got green blinds so everyone was happy!

Poor little guy!  I'm glad he got something in his choice of color and was able to feel a part of the decision making process, lol!

Cute David! I love working with kids when I'm staging.  Including them in the process really helps with their "buy-in" to help keep things tidy!

James ~ It's certainly our goal to please all of our clients - even the kids!

Sharon ~ Well, his mom certainly wasn't going to let him have something he would grow out of quickly. And yes, at least the curtains were in his color choice!

Ginger ~ You're right - it's good to get the 'buy-in' of kids! Anything to keep a place clean, right?

Cathy ~ It was great to meet you in Las Vegas as well. We'll see you next year!
