Why I use a life coach

 Why may you want to have a life coach? Because sometimes you feel out of balance or just need some perspective on what to do next in life.  That’s how I feel lately and sat down with a life coach Jillian Johnson https://jillianj.com/  For me it was trying to put all the puzzle pieces together and have a roadmap of what’s was around the corner.

You ask what is a life coach? It is the process addresses specific personal goals, business successes, and help discover obstacles that are in their way. They make you have accountability for your action and commit to your goals. They draw out a map for your action, so you can get what you want out of life.

 What heck does this have to do with interior design? A lot if you think about it. an Interior Designer is a life coach for your home. I draw a map (Floor Plans) and give you suggestions to improve your life within your home through balance and function with interior design. This helps you find what is blocking you from moving forward in the design process. By taking actions to set goals of making your home or office reflect your lifestyle and tell a story. Many of my clients will say that they dislike how the room looks and never use it. This is usually due to how the furniture is the placed, color, or even the lighting, all of which can throw a room off.

This is where I listen to what your need and wants are for space. These are the same steps that a life coach will take for their clients.

The steps for your home will be:  

  1. Questionnaire to find out what are your needs and wants
  2. Come up with a plan of action
  3. Rendering
  4. Samples
  5. Shopping list
  6. Final install of your new room.

This is a process to achieve your goal of reflecting what your lifestyle is and story.

 If your home needs an Interior life coach, let’s refresh, remove, and redesign and discover what are the obstacles in your home or office.

Staging Your Home For A Quick Sale

How can you make your home stand out during the busiest time of year for real estate? By staging it to sell.

Home staging is preparing a residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for top asking price. Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming and attractive home.

First impressions are very important in selling your home. That’s why home staging is so essential to make that first impression a good and lasting one for anyone who enters your home or view it on line. Currently 90% of all real estate is seen on line before potential buyers will step in to any home.

Home staging can reduce a listing’s time on the market by one third to half, and could fetch as much as 6% to 20% more than a non- staged.

According to National Association of Realtors

Most important rooms to be staged:

 Rank of Importance: Room

1 Living Room

2 Kitchen

3 Master Bedroom

4 Dining Room

5 Bathroom

6 Children’s Bedroom

7 Guest Bedroom

Home staging is not a major remodeling project at all. In many cases it involves just rearranging furniture, decluttering, and cleaning.  Priority is space planning.  This is important because you want to show the scale of the room, function of the space, and help the future owner to visualize them self-living there. Remember the goal is to sell the home.
