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.

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.
