How Do You Build Trust?


Ok, we’re all guilty of something in our lives; mine is guilty of trust. I choose my Home Staging customers through feeling, and trust all will turn out just fine.

My “contract” is an email to you to stage or design your homes, listing where, what rooms and how much.  If I used a hard-to-read contract it would not change the way I do business because I do and say exactly what I propose.

Discernment, gut feelings, and women’s intuition are incredible.  I’ve had some pretty bad years with evil individuals and corrupt businesses but this has taught me to trust again – but it has taken some time.

Realtors, Brokers and Investors get free consultations for vacant properties.  And, depending on the situation, I will consult with others at no charge for your home staging or design for your new home. To me, it’s all about making loyal customers, honest business relationships and true friends.

So here’s my expertise that is used for every design:

  1. We don’t sweat the small stuff – flexible pricing
  2. We’re not afraid to point out our flaws – we address them
  3. We use urgency to get it done quickly – elegant one day design
  4.  One month lease with prorated days – less than $40 a day
  5. Polished and bright photos by a professional – included
  6. Promotional gift offers – monthly give-a-ways and discounts

Being a likeable and trustworthy person all boils down to getting to know one another, sharing stories, getting personal, having a common passion and being helpful, generous and responsive to each other. How do you trust?

Do You Include These Principles in your Home Design?

Most Interior Designers know the Principles of Design, I’m not one, but I have an Interior Designer in my company and we talk about these principles now and then. We also use these principles in Home Staging design – or try to – and can make or break the design. These photos from other designers are right on in their Principles of Design!

Balance – a sense of visual weight of the elements. I like symmetrical – centered fireplace with two identical chairs facing each other, or this bedroom by Justin Lawson. Notice the side tables; it’s like a mirrored image. I just love this room.

Rhythm – a repetition of elements in a design scheme. Note the design by Kim Coleman where she repeats the squares in the bedpost onto the wall with the square mirror. Repetition can be done with color and visual interest, but the design must include a sense of unity.





Emphasis – elements in a design that are more significant than other features in a room. This is one of my favorites. In our home staging, we’ll take a favorite piece of art, furniture piece or wall covering and make it stand out from the other subordinate pieces. A room looks lifeless without emphasis from Interior Design Basics. The area rug pulls all of the other pieces together; could you imagine this room without the rug?






Scale – using an area rug, art or furniture selections that are too small. Very important in home staging too when there is no scale used in the overall room design. Your design will look weak. This look is complete.





Harmony – this is created by the design, itself. Unity and variety need to exist in a room to get harmony by using colors, textures, patterns and variety. All of these photos are excellent in a complete design feel.  Isn’t it a “feeling” when you find that perfect house on the market?
