Staging is so SO important! In this interview I talk to Carolyn Pilla, professional photographer and owner of CP Creations, about her thoughts on staging. We talk about paint colors, accent walls, items to include and items not to include (ie things with eyes) and more! Check out this video to see what she has to say!

I love seeing the changes clients make once they move in. Check out this kitchen "before and after" - The only thing they kept was the floor.

Sometimes it's hard to picture how much a few updates can transform a space! I had these before and after pictures taken of a duplex we bought this year on Kingshighway in St Louis.
For around $2,000 we were able to make the entire space much more appealing - we had a contractor paint all the rooms in a warm greige, update the light fixtures, and hang curtains up in one bedroom and the living room. This transformation cost approximately $2000 including labor and materials - money well spent if you are selling or renting your home. :)
If you are considering selling, I can help you give your home the "wow" factor it needs for an effortless sale - a consultation is always FREE!
I love house projects & updating - especially seeing the difference paint can make!! Check out these before and after shots of a home I recently sold in Glen Carbon.
Fireplace before and after: This home was built in the late 90s when brick was more popular around a fireplace. The buyers did a whitewash paint finish that I LOVE! It really gives it a more modern, fresh look.
Island before and after: The owners painted most of the cabinets white and chose a warm grey for the island. Another choice I LOVE!
