Choosing colors can be confusing and overwhelming ... so many variables to consider! I love to help my clients find the perfect colors that they love to live with and that blend well with what is already in the room.
After a long and successful career in the corporate world, I decided it was time to follow my dream and start my own creative business. To add to practical experience from years of helping “friends and family” with their decorating challenges, I took classes in Decorating, Color Consulting, Home Staging and Senior Move Management. I am a Certified Decorating Professional, Certified Color Consultant and a member of ADE, the Association of Design Education.
A Fresh Eye LLC was born in 2011 and I love every minute I spend helping my clients create lovely environments.
Staging a home is very different from interior decorating. The focus is not on designing rooms to please the homeowner, but on making the house appeal to prospective buyers. The goal is to help the home sell as quickly as possible at the highest price.
My involvement in move management goes back many years to when my parents decided to move to an independent living facility. What an overwhelming undertaking this can be! Their home needed to be sold. Decisions had to be made as to what to take to their new apartment. What would fit? What would make it feel like “home”? What would they do with everything else?
It has been very rewarding to help others navigate through this process and move into their new homes with a minimum of anxiety. I pride myself on being compassionate, upbeat and flexible … and, most of all, sensitive to the needs of my clients.
Decorating homes has always been a passion for me. Now I get to help others transform their rooms into beautiful places to live. My approach is to start with what my clients already own and find a way to make everything look fresh and new. What a joy to see my clients eyes light up when they see the difference!
