Before I share a few of my findings and ideas about staging, I think it is only fair that I share a few things about myself. Don’t worry, I’ll keep this short. My name is Anne and I am on my way to becoming a Physician Assistant. Now you may be thinking, “medicine and home staging are nothing alike,” and you would be right; however, I am not just an aspiring PA. I was born a dreamer and as I have matured, my love for creativity and interior design has matured as well. Let me tell you a story…..
A year ago as I was adjusting to the start of a new semester, an idea occurred to me that was so brilliant it could not be ignored. This idea has only evolved and developed into a dream of mine that I, someday, will make a reality. My dream is to create a staging business. Now, I know there are countless others who have already done this, but my dream is bigger. I don’t just want a business to stage houses to sell. That is only the beginning of my dream. I want my business to share the passion, the creativity, and the determination to create something amazing out of very little. My business will be called Stage Your Space (as you have probably guessed). I am going to not only offer home staging for selling your home, but also staging for when you move into a new space. I want to help people find the colors to paint the walls, the type of furniture to use in odd spaces, and how to make a few simple changes with pieces they already have that will make the world of difference. But, my dream doesn’t stop there. I want to teach people by bringing them into my business space and showing them (by example) the differences color, shape, and layout can make when looking at a space. I want to hold seminars to show people that upstaging your bathroom can be done for under $75. I want to show my clients how to do DIY projects, instead of just leaving instructions for them to follow. I want to be a teacher, a leader, and an inspiration to those looking for a little (or a lot of) change in their home and life. However, until I can start my business I have decided to create a blog to combine DIY projects I make, pictures of cleverly designed spaces I come across, and ideas I come up with to successfully stage a space.
So now you know, I am just a college student with a lot of ideas that I am determined to bring to life. It has taken me awhile to figure out how to start on my journey, but now that I have taken this first step, I hope you will join me and help me grow as a designer.
Thanks for reading!
