Silk florals add beauty to homes for living or selling…

PRES home stagers and redesigners use a lot of florals as one of their key accessories to adding the final touch to a home for selling, or for living. Florals come in so many shapes, sizes, styles, textures, etc. that it’s good to have a variety and mix them up. Large green leaves, tall twigs, grasses (brown or green) and colourful silk flowers add beauty to any home. Most can be cleaned with a damp microfibre cloth, some can go in the bathtub and be gently swished around or you can air spray them. Keep them looking clean because when the dust collects it’s bad ‘chi’ in the air!

If you happen to live in an area where there is a Home Sense, Walmart, Costco or Target you will find a variety of florals to choose from. It just takes a good eye to see what will work and what won’t but most stores will have lots to choose from in the spring and fall seasons.

In my opinion Michaels (craft store) has the best silk flowers and plants, although I suggest buying there when they have a sale on as they are more expensive than other stores.

For good decorating/design work with florals in odd numbers of arrangements.Florals can be one of the areas where you work in your accent colour very nicely.

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.
