A Few Words About Us
Before starting my own home staging and redesign business I had my own custom pottery business in my home studio for 15 years while I stayed home with my kids. Having worked at lululemon athletica as a merchandiser I learned about decorating, teamwork and the importance of showcasing product.
J&W Inspired Home is a great way for me to continue working creatively and use my experience as a merchandiser and artist to decorate beautiful spaces for living. I have been professionally trained and hold the designation of being a Pres Certified Stager and Redesign professional.
I am very passionate about working with home owners to assist in preparing their home for sale. Having a ‘market ready’ merchandised product that stands out from other properties, allows me to use my wealth of experience and professional training to provide the very best to my clients.
I offer my clients creative, stylish and affordable designs they can be proud to show! Our company stands out from the rest in that we provide home staging, redesign for living and beautiful home restoration.
Over the years of owning my own home, various rental properties, and helping friends (and friends of friends!), I quickly amassed the tools and knowledge to tackle various fixes that may be needed around the home after years of life lived there.
While Joanne takes you through the steps required to stage or redesign your home, I can help you through the multiple areas that could use a clean up or a quick fix. This will make all the difference. In older homes especially, upgrades and renovations over the years start to overlap but quite frequently, are not seamless of each other. A project starts and ends without taking into account the impacts of the original or adjoining features. You end up with a beautiful vanity but have a robin egg blue toilet, dated door knobs, hinges, electrical switches and plug-ins all seem out of place with the newest in furniture and paint colours. New calking in bathrooms and kitchens is an easy way to freshen up your bathroom and make it look more ‘spa like’. Updated light fixtures will also create a more modern look in an older home and could make a huge impact on how the potential buyer feels about the space. Ultimately, the closer your home is to ‘move in ready’ the more someone will pay for it!
Whether you plan to sell or stay, I can assist you in making it a fabulous experience.
