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!

Proud owner of PRES Staging® and expert home stager. I naturally started drawing interiors when I was very young. I see finished projects completed in my minds-eye as the client explains to me how they would love to see their space created. I then can draw sketches quickly to produce this vision right then and there with the client. My creative talents led me to full time work as a career counsellor working with people, designing workshops, facilitating groups when the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements. My many talents in this field was a happy marriage to own PRES the Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. Helping others start and run their own home décor businesses for redesign and staging, learning design principals and building confidence brings me great joy and passion. Working with people and helping them make confident decisions comes easy to me.
