It’s that time again!

I know November may be a wee bit early to decorate for the holidays but Saturday, November 20th was a perfect day in Vancouver BC , the sun was shining, it was warm out and being the organized person that I am I had already planned out my scheme and had everything that I needed to so I thought, why not?

I use the same major pieces each year but change the scheme. This year I took my inspiration from all the plaid and gold in fashion. All I did was change the bows on my wreaths, create some live urns with fresh cedar and birch poles, and spray paint the stars from the silver of last year to gold. I purchased a few yards of plaid and covered my deck chairs for that finishing detail. And….TA-DA! Now all I need to do is wait for December 1st to flick the light switch.

I hope this is an inspiration to you and will spark the flame of your Christmas spirit.

Colleen McClure
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.
