Colour Consultations Add to Stagers Tool Kit!

Learning how to do colour consultations ‘for living’ is another way for home stagers to add to their took kit! Adding a new service means another revenue stream and that means more money!

Every stagers’ journey to get where they are is different. No two stagers will ever have exactly the same skill set but the more tools in their tool kit the more services they have to offer their clients. The more services they can offer can distinguish them apart from other home staging companies.  While home stagers do offer colour consultations for staging they are not as difficult to do compared to picking a colour scheme for a client who is living in their home. This is where stagers take into account the client’s personality and their life style.

The PRES Staging Resource Centre offers professional development courses throughout the year so their graduates and others, can put more tools in their tool kit – to increase revenues which is what we all want to do. Our latest cours 1-2-3 Client Colour Consultation course was a big hit! I loved teaching it and I always learn something new myself.

The students learned about a variety of harmonious and contrasting colour schemes, about colour personality, colour trends, how to select their 1-2-3 colour scheme. PRES programs always involve learning ‘theory’ and then ‘applying that theory’ to fully understand a principle.

A PRES course wouldn’t be a PRES course without the role plays. And who better to do it that Sally Weatherley of Exit Stage Right and Lois North of Lois Interiors!

Talent Lois & Sally Stager!

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.
