Benjamin Moore Workshop – Paint Colours for Selling

What a great night at the Kensington Paint & Decorating Benjamin Moore store in Burnaby. Thanks Tim and Eric Rasmussen! Guests enjoyed a fun night of learning about 3 of the key areas to preparing your house for selling – Decluttering & depersonalizing; highlighting architectural features with correct furniture placement and choosing the right paint colours. Jeffrey Murray, the BM Rep did a great job of explaining the technical aspects of paint. BM has some great new paints out Aura for one is great because it dries within 1 hour and no primer is needed; they have some new eco-friendly paints with no VOC omissions.

Most of the technical goes right over my head because I just love to pick the colours!

Colleen McClure Administrator & Proud owner of PRES Staging® - Expert Home Stager. When I was very young I began drawing interiors, it just came naturally. When I work with a client now, I see the finished project completed in my minds-eye as they explain how they would love to see their space created. I am able to provide sketches on the spot of their vision so this invokes client confidence and excitement for the project from the inception through to the brilliant manifestation – How Fun! When the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements, other passions led me to full-time work as a career counsellor. I very much enjoyed assisting people one-on-one to discover their own talents but this was an arena where I would develop effective techniques in workshop design and group facilitation as well. This would lead to a ‘happy marriage’ as I would apply these skills and passions when I purchased PRES Staging® - The Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. It’s truly the greatest joy to inspire others to discover and hone their innate talents – To witness their emerging confidence while coaching them on design principals and providing them the tools to start and run their own Home Décor businesses for Redesign and Staging.
