Dollar Design Team:
Home Staging and Interior Design are somewhat similar,
and they are definitely related to each other, but they
are not the same. Although Million Dollar Stagers
is primarily a Home & Commercial Property Staging & Real
Estate Merchandising company, we also offer Interior
Design to anyone who needs those services. We have
several members on our team who are professional
Interior Designers, who have attended Interior Design
school, who have college degrees in this field, and who
are very experienced & extremely talented. If you
have Interior Design needs, we are well positioned to
take on your project and we would be absolutely thrilled
to have the opportunity work with you. We are not
just Million Dollar Stagers, we are also Million Dollar
Differences Between Staging and Interior Design:
Staging, and Interior Design share several of the
same attributes. Both require a great sense of
design, a flair for visualizing space and layout, an eye
for color, and a huge amount of inborn talent! But
Home Staging & Real Estate Merchandising demands a solid
understanding of the real estate industry, marketing,
merchandising, and even sales. Interior Designers
aren't concerned with these things. In Staging &
Merchandising, the ultimate focus is to sell a commodity
(the property), and everything that we do as stagers and
merchandisers is geared toward that goal. When we
stage a home, the target client that we are working to
please is the potential buyer. But in Interior
Design - it's all different. In Interior Design,
it's all about you, your family, the people who are
living in the space, and no one else! As Interior
Designers, we are working to please your tastes, to
transform your living environment into a warm and
pleasing, wonderful place where you can feel comfortable
and "at home" in your own space. As Interior
Designers, we have no concerns about selling the home,
and we do not have to worry about whether the home will
appeal to any special demographic. There are no
marketing or merchandising considerations, and the only
strategy that we have to deal with is what pleases you
the most, what it takes to make your home beautiful in
your eyes, and what makes you feel the best in your
home. Interior Design really IS, all about you.
How We Work - Getting Started: just as in
Home Staging, we are professional decorators and we know what it takes
to make a home look
We can definitely do this for you, but, again, in this
scenario your wishes are our commands. The way we
work when we take on an Interior Design project is
different then with staging. Instead of accessing
your home as a marketable commodity, and beginning the
process by strategizing how to make your home more
presentable to the public, we take some time to get to
know you, to learn about your tastes, and to learn about
what it takes to make you feel good. We
take some time to learn a little about your personality
and your personal lifestyle, and we ask you questions
that will give us insight and perspective so we can
personalize our services to your tastes. In
Interior Design, it's not about "depersonalizing", it's
about "personalizing". Really, in many ways, we
are doing the exact opposite than if we were staging
your home to sell it. We will still do a
walk-through evaluation of your home, and we will take
lots of photos to help us in the planning process back
at the office, but we will be doing our evaluation with
completely different eyes, and with a different mindset,
as opposed to if we were staging your home. Our
plan will be to consult and communicate with you at
every step of the design & implementation process.
From a professional point of view, we will make
suggestions and work with you to make choices that will
fit your personal vision.
Once a plan is in place, depending on exactly what needs
to be done, we may, on your behalf, sub-contract out and
bring in additional people to help. For example,
if any kind of major painting or carpentry work is
needed, then licensed contractors are required and this
will definitely be included in the plan of action.
If cleaning is needed, or if heavy items need to be
moved, we may need helpers for that as well.
Whatever needs to be done on this level will be taken
care of now.
Shopping & Pulling Together Furnishings:
Next, we will hit the stores and start shopping.
Shopping is an exciting time for us, and it's a lot of
fun, because every home and every project is different
and unique. It gives us great joy and pleasure to
present to you the many new furnishings and finds that
we are able to pull together to decorate your home.
This is an exciting time for you too, because this is
when you begin to see all the beautiful new furniture,
accessories and pieces of art arriving - it's the start
of the transformation process. This phase of the
work may span across several days. Just like
staging, our philosophy is that we prefer to take the
time to let the creative juices flow and to do the job
right. Sometimes it takes a little time to pull
together everything that we need, and to discover and
find just the right furnishings. Also, often times
we need to make some of our own creations!
Decorating Your Home: Now that all of your
new furnishings have arrived, we are all set to start
the actual decorating. Depending on your
situation, we will either be working with all new
furnishings, or a combination of what you already have,
plus the new things that we have brought in. We
will go through your entire home. Working with
you, we will move, position and arrange everything so
it's in the proper place and looks and feels just right.
We'll take care of the furniture, the art work, plants,
and we will completely accessorize your new living
spaces. When we are finished, we want everything
to look and feel perfect and beautiful!
