Lois North, of Lois Interiors, Makes Magic for 20 Year Owners in Shaughnessy

Enjoy the photos, below, that capture the unbelievable difference that Lois of Lois interiors made in this Shaughnessy home. The previous owners are busy professionals who also own two additional properties outside of Vancouver. They have lived and raised their children in this home for 20 years. They remarked that they had allowed their belongings to overtake their home and that they hadn’t realized the result until their realtor discussed it with them. It was decided that they needed to bring in the professionals, hence Lois’ involvement.

The incredible amount of work that it took to get this property ready for sale is a story in itself. Clearing away 20 years of life’s accumulation included: the arrangement of house cleaners, carpet cleaners, furniture movers, throughout the 3 floors of the home, and the purchasing of items on the client’s behalf. The happy ending is that this home sold within 10 days!

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. If you’ve ever thought you might enjoy this line of work, or even to do it for yourself and friends, get in touch – Let’s chat!
