Plants Add Life to Your Home’s Interior

I admit it; I love plants. Indoor. Outdoor. I love them all. They add life, interest, and they simply look great! You can use them as focal points, in groupings or just because! Flowers are also pretty special.

I have a lot of plants in my own home. The pic above is just a few of my own indoor plants. When I stage properties for sale, I almost always add a few indoors and out. They can make a home feel warm and lived-in. Plus they are beautiful!

Here are some ideas: fresh flowers in a bedroom, orchids in a bathroom, tall plants that direct your gaze upwards, large lush plants that beautifully fill a corner and a little potted garden in a sunny window. How about a trailing plant in a cool macrame hanger/holder in a sunny corner? See pix of my staging using my own plants and decor below.

You can incorporate plants and plant themes into just about any decor. Plants can be hip, modern, relaxed, elegant, traditional, upscale and eclectic. Pretty much any home can benefit from a well-placed and wisely-selected plant.

See for yourself! Add an easy-care plant to your home, if you don’t have one already, and see what a difference it makes.

Talk About Color

As an artist, I have been working with and playing with color all of my life. I have really gotten to know each color, and I love them all! They each have their own personality and unique voice, too. You can use color to express yourself or to create a space that makes you happy just to be in it. You just need to choose the right colors.

In my latest podcast, I go into what I think colors have to say and also describe some of their personalities! Yes, I think colors have personalities or MOODS that you can use to your advantage to express exactly what you want to say in your home decor. Colors are your friends!

Behind the Sale: Home Staging

Check out my podcast where I take you behind the scenes of one of my listings. Homeowners had lived there for decades, and were ready to downsize. They needed my help with de-cluttering and home staging to get it ready to go on the market. Had to take many things into consideration on this transaction in order for it to be successful. In the end, it worked out very well for all parties. Enjoy!

Trying Something New…

Life hands us things we don’t expect, and we can choose what we want to do with them. Keeping an open mind helps, and working with what you have been given can often lead to a happy discovery. I, myself, usually try to make the best of things, but have not always been successful.

In the latest episode of my free podcast, I give several examples of what I am talking about. Hoping you can relate and maybe get a laugh or two from my trials.
