Certified Color Expert!

I am so excited to announce a new service that is now being offered by Organized Homes & Staging by Kristin – Color Perfect Home Consultations! Recently, I completed the very comprehensive Certified Color Expert (CCE) training program that was created by Audra Slinkey, owner of Home Staging Resource. I passed the test last month and have been busy putting the pieces in place to incorporate this new service into my business.

I absolutely love looking at paint colors, and since I started my business in April of 2010, I’ve wanted to have a more complete understanding of color. This was the course I was waiting for!

The CCE 6-step color read process simplifies color selection so that the Color Perfect Home can be created! It starts with the homeowner’s preferences, assesses current furnishings and finishes and ends with several beautiful palette options, including large paint color samples, for walls, trim, ceilings, etc. I can also recommend new finishes (lighting, hardware, etc.), as well as furniture and accessory colors.

I am offering two Color Perfect Home Consultation packages: 4-rooms or 10-rooms. I also have single room add-on options. Each package includes transitional spaces such as entries, hallways and stairways. I would love to help you find your Color Perfect Home!

Basement Remodel – Part Three

I feel like we are finally making some progress! The basement ceiling has been scraped of the dated popcorn, the knock down texture is up, and it has been painted a pretty, creamy white, which keeps the room warm and cozy feeling.

The room was taped off with sheets of plastic and work began.

Basement Remodel – Part One

As much as I love to decorate and organize things in my own home, I am not the biggest fan of remodel projects.  I decided it may be interesting (and therapeutic) to blog about a project my husband and I are in the beginning stages of.  The plan is to turn our never-used basement into more of a theater-style room (since we love to watch TV and movies).  I am praying that the completion date is not going to be too far off; I am not a fan of having things in disarray!

DIY Project – Chalk Paint a Dated Bench

Within the last year, I have begun working on small paint projects to repurpose and update various items. I recently took on a larger project, and couldn’t be more thrilled with the results!

For about the past 11 years, we have had this bench sitting in our side entryway (the main entrance used in the house). I was getting really tired of it, and thought about getting rid of it and purchasing something new.  Then it dawned on me – paint it! Read the rest of this entry »

Anatomy of an Occupied Home Staging Project

I recently had the pleasure of working with a really sweet family to help them get their lovely house in Chaska, MN ready to sell. After a brief phone conversation to gather important details about the house and their timing on when they wanted to get the house listed, we scheduled a date for the home staging consultation.

What is Occupied Home Staging?

For almost six years, I have been working with sellers to guide and help them in getting their house ready to sell. On occasion, I still meet a seller who is unfamiliar with what home staging is exactly.  In a nutshell, home staging is preparing a house (both the interior and exterior) to sell; its visual marketing of a house – and, it is much more than just decorating and making it look pretty.  The goal in staging a house to sell is to showcase it so that it appeals to a majority of buyers, which often times will result in a quicker sale for more money.

During the initial home staging consultation with a seller, the house is assessed as to what steps should be taken in order to get it ready to show its best on the market. These steps include deep cleaning, de-cluttering, addressing all repair work, neutralizing the house and possibly updating in key areas.

I was very excited and honored to receive an email in early September from the Waconia Award Program letting me know that I had been selected as the Best of Waconia winner for 2015 in the category of Home Staging. I am fortunate to grow a rewarding business in the community I live, doing something that I am excited and passionate about. I love the town of Waconia, the people who live here and the clients and business partners I am fortunate to work with.

Is Your House Your Home?

The title of this blog may sound silly to some.  Of course your house is your home, right?  When I think of a house, I think of a structure; a building with four walls and multiple rooms.  When I think of a home, it is more than that.  It is your personal sanctuary; the place where you live and probably spend a good deal of time.  In my opinion, your home should be a haven where you can completely relax and decompress from this hectic thing called life we are all living.

If your home is not comfortable to you, I have a hard time believing a person can easily find a sense of peace and restfulness.  Any dwelling can become a home.  I personally feel that a house becomes a home based on what you surround yourself with.
