I just read this post from Nancy who is in Utah with her husband, working on setting her goals for 2010. I find it so poignant. I can relate to her being in a place of beauty and of simplicity, with only what she needs, and finding that suddenly her mind opens, the ideas abound […]
Despite the best of intentions, I really got nothing done over the holidays. As a certain someone was thinking of the time he would have off during Christmas and New Year’s as an opportunity to perfect his Guitar Hero performance of all things Van Halen, I was relishing the opportunity to get my Montreal home staging […]
I once had this kitchen. You’ve seen it before, haven’t you? Or was it just a Montreal home-builder’s brainchild? You know, that beautiful (?) almond-coloured melamine cabinetry and then, for a pinch of the organic, a strip of oak at the bottom of each upper cabinet door and at the top of each lower door […]
On a recent staging job here in Montreal, Canada, an ordinary dining table went from good to great with the injection of a bowl of real, live fruit.

I just wanted to thank you again for putting the WOW into our home. Not only were the paint colours for the entire house bang on, you transformed a large but awkward shaped room into a warm, cozy sitting area – kid-proofed and all!
Thanks for a smashing job. Everyone who walked in wanted to stay and so we had 5 offers within a week. A lot of houses are for sale around here and you made ours stand out. And you did it while respecting its own kind of charm. If it wasn’t for your talent and your […]
I had the pleasure of using Tanya’s professional services last year when I decided to list my home for sale. In a short period of time, she transformed my home into a peaceful beachside haven! I didn’t want to move, my home was listed and in one week I had received…
When we were selling, you took our condo and transformed it in to an extremely desirable place for anyone to live and enjoy. Your talent to “make everything work” on our budget was inspiring to say the least. We sold our condo before any of the other 4 in our neighbourhood……BRAVO!!!!!
Working with you was a real pleasure…. We really appreciate all the commitment, creativity and professionalism you brought to the task and the way you fought for our interests throughout. We always felt you understood where we were coming from and that you “got”…
