Flowers Offer Inspiration

I love looking at floral shops in every city I travel to because they always offer so much inspiration. Not only are the flowers exquisite, they smell divine and floral shops have some beautiful home decor pieces that you don’t always find in the other home decor stores. If you like to bring some of that magic from the outside indoors, start popping into more florist shops.

One of my favourites is in North Vancouver, BC called Special Moments Fowers & Gifts in the Park & Tilford Shopping Centre. Their displays are beautiful with elegant groupings of flowers & vases & candles, etc. Check them out at

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.
