Florists shops provide inspiration for holiday decorating

As a home staging instructor I don’t recommend staging with religious holiday decorations but I do believe you can use some seasonally coloured decorations like red, silver and gold. If the property does not sell in December the staging can stay as it is into the next month. Plants and florals work well at any time of the year but red amaryllis and white orchids look quite stunning.

We have a local florist shop that I love going into for inspiration called Special Moments. The owner Jennifer Sullivan does absolutely sensational displays every single month. I even go in her shop just to get a visually high on the florals and all the home decor items she has.

Take some time and get inspired by going into your local florists shops – so magic!

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.
