Staging Outdoor Spaces

Tracy Sterling —  July 12, 2016

Staging the front porch of a home is very important since it is the first impression a buyer will get. Continue Reading…

A common challenge for homeowners, who are lucky enough to have a sunroom, is knowing exactly what to do with it. Yes, I say “lucky” as I’d love nothing more than to have one in my own home. Continue Reading…

Proper home staging is all about creating a space that will stimulate a buyer’s imagination. Your goal is to get interested parties to picture themselves living (in comfort and style) in your home. However, most homesellers focus their energies on staging just the interior of their homes. This is a big mistake. Continue Reading…

After  sitting on the market for 45 days, Realtor Rob Chavez, owner of The Caza Group, asked us to stage an 834 sq ft one bedroom condo in Alexandria. Continue Reading…

On this Memorial Day, we want to give a salute to those who bravely sacrificed their lives, who have served/are serving and their families that support them. With 50% of Staged Interior team members either having served or are spouses of those that have, we polled ourselves to find what it means to represent this great country of ours.

Maggie Ryan, Staging Team Leader, speaks of how the military has helped shaped her family, saying “being part of a military family has shaped me and my children. We have learned to adapt to different situations, think outside the box and be able to find solutions to difficult problems.” Additionally, one of the hardest aspects of being a military spouse is the toll it takes being away from family. Maggie and others have learned to rely on other “families” to help get them through. She states “it doesn’t matter where we have lived, the connections we have made through the Air Force are some of the strongest bonds we have. Most recently my work family has supported me through our latest year long deployment. My family at Staged Interior made our separation bearable and I am grateful for their support.”

Shannon Ries, our newest team member who works as a Staging Assistant, speaks to what the military has introduced for her. She also speaks to the hidden blessings of being part of the military. When asked what it meant to have her spouse served, she mentions, “It means being extremely proud of my husband and all our amazing friends and family that have served. We’ve had the opportunity to live and travel all over the world, and I have been blessed along the way to meet some of the best group of people I could have asked for.” Shannon also has learned to find support during more difficult times, stating, “my deployment family is an amazing group of men and women that will be life long friends.”

Clancey Orchard, Staging Assistant, appreciates how the military has helped mold her outlook on parenting. Clancey mentions, “It has given me the opportunity to experience life from many different aspects … learning how to be resourceful on my own during deployments as a single parent.” She has also gained a supreme appreciation for those in the armed forces. “Being a military spouse has definitely given me a whole new appreciation for what our men and women and their families put on the line on a daily basis to protect and serve our country.”

Thank you to those who courageously gave their lives, who have served, are currently serving, and the families/friends that support them. Without your dedicated service, we wouldn’t have the freedoms and liberties that we get to enjoy today.

Many Blessings,
Trish Kim, ASP Master

March can be unpredictable when it comes to the weather, but no matter what Mother Nature is doing outside your window, it’s natural to crave a fresh start this time of year. The first official day of spring is March 20, so usher in the new season with a bit of spring cleaning, fresh flowers and — if you can get outdoors — a little dirt under your fingernails.

Why We Love What We Do

Tracy Sterling —  February 11, 2016

In the spirit of Valentines, we thought it would be fun to interview the Staged Interior stagers asking them why they love what they do! When you get to do something you love everyday, it no longer seems like work. Studies show that the stronger the intrinsic motivation (personal passion) to perform your job, the more successful you’ll become and the better work you’ll do. Continue Reading…
