This themed ‘Romance Room’ got a spacelift!

Having a theme for rooms in your home can be a great idea and help you stay focused on the end styling result. As one of the PRES staging training homes our client offered her home for the one-day home makeover we call ‘redesign’. She had beautiful things and a real flair for decorating and wanted to see what we could do with her space. She likes to have a ‘theme’ in all of her rooms so we tackled what I call her ‘Romance Room’ to just make it a little bit more gorgeous while her husband serenades her at the piano.

Nice room to be sure....but do the leather chairs work here?

Her testimonial is a huge compliment to the Art of Redesign and the awesome work the students did during the 5 day PRES staging and redesign course:

“WOW! Is all I can say Dana. When I was given the opportunity to offer my home as your training space I felt very honored and kind of excited. I think I have a pretty nice flair for decorating so I really didn’t think Dana and her students would have too much to do.

Was I surprised when I came home at the end of the day and found my home so different and absolutely gorgeous! My husband and I have been sitting in our “parlor” all night just loving the feel and my dining room and family room are just decadent.

I am amazed at how you could rework my own pieces and give me a completely different look and feel, I LOVE my home. Thank you Dana and your simply amazing students for doing such a fabulous job.”

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.
