Moose Jaw, SK
Professional,affordable, home staging and redesign with amazing results guaranteed
Hello,my name is Paula Epp and I live in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. My passion is to stage homes (preparing them for the real estate market). I also love to redesign spaces for clients,family and friends.
My philosophy on design is: Keep it simple, and work with what you already have by adding, removing, rearranging and recreating your personal space to be stylish, tasteful and comfortable.
To achieve this desired look, a room in your home may simply need a new paint color,some new accessories, or de-cluttering and furniture rearranging. This is where my professional expertise will offer you options according to your taste and budget.
I believe I first developed an eye for design at an early age. Our family moved frequently and my mother always decorated our home attractively. This is where I saw firsthand how empty rooms were transformed into beautiful living spaces.
As a young married woman I had my first opportunity to develop my own sense of style. My husband and I purchased a farm with a house that needed updating. I greatly enjoyed the experience of making it our own.
Our next project was more extensive as we bought a lakefront property with only a garage on it and transformed it into a cozy cottage from the ground up. I am very pleased with the decisions that were made.
My most recent endeavour has been with our home in Moose Jaw. The bones of the house were good but it required numerous cosmetic updates. For some of the rooms I purchased new items and in others I chose to use my existing furniture. Many flattering comments were received on completion of the updates.
Over the years I’ve taken decorating courses through the local college. With encouragement from family and friends, I decided to combine my experience with further training and education by acquiring my professional staging and redesign certificate from QC design school. Whenever there’s a spare moment, especially in winter, you will find me snuggled in a blanket on the couch watching TV design shows.
Home Staging Service
If you are in the market to sell your home you will want to maximize its potential.
Staging accents your home’s best features and creates a pleasant mental picture of a future home for the possible buyer. My professional advice is yours from the start of this process to the completion of it.
Step One: Begins with the consultation, which could take from one to three hours depending on the property. We meet at the homeowner’s where we do a walk thru of the entire property assessing curb appeal, exterior and interior. A complete written evaluation recommends any cosmetic changes and advises of minor repairs. Also, I will suggest what rooms in the home would benefit from being redesigned.
Step Two: The homeowner reads the recommendations and completes the work. They may hire professionals, or choose to do it themselves which will reduce the cost. If that seems too daunting I would be happy to arrange to have these tasks completed.
Step Three: When the work is finished, I return and complete the makeover on the spaces selected for the redesign. Finally, the home is market ready. The hard work is rewarded by a beautifully transformed property and a great return on your investment.
Do you have a worn tired looking room? Let me help by creating a fresh new look! I also offer my redesign services independently of home resale.
Cost: I charge an hourly rate of $60 for consultation or redesign services. Make it a package by combining the consultation and redesign service and I will offer a discount at the rate of $50/hr.
* There is a mileage charge for consultations outside of the city of Moose Jaw.
