My Design Philosophy

I believe that successful design is the art of using organizational and interior decorating techniques to create an environment that is comfortable, stress free, beautiful and personal to you. It allows you the home owner to say, “I love and feel at home in each room of my house!”

At McAtee Home Staging & Organizing, I use what you already have in new and updating ways, incorporating simple decorating techniques throughout the home. It’s a combination of eight things I analyze in each room in order to create a home you will love!

*First Impressions – I will walk through your home room by room, taking note of our first impressions, what grabs us, what glares at us, and what gives us a feeling of home.

*Eliminating clutter – The packing begins now, we will pack away a good percentage of everything in the room in order to create a more clean, open and spacious feel.

*Emphasizing the positive while downplaying the negative – Finding your beautiful focal points, we will emphasize what we love about the rooms and hide or distract the negative aspects.

*Lighten Up – Focusing on lighting and color, we will make each room into a bright, warm and inviting space buyers can respond to.

*Home Owner’s Appeal – In order for you to “feel home,” you need a home that is a wonderful reflection of you, your family, your life and what you love. We’ll have you fill out our lifestyle questionnaire, so that we can create a tailored space for your family.

*Obligation to yourself – Cleaning/Repairs – The dirty work speaks for itself but is many times overlooked because you’ve lived here for so long. These mental “to do’s” can be draining. So, let’s get rid of them by incorporating an organizational plan that is easy to follow.

*Modernizing – Improving your style and building simple accessories out of what you already have to create clean lines and form. Sometimes, we’ll recommend simple purchases to complete the look.

*Emotional Connection Points – We create elegant, personal spaces throughout your home that reflect your family’s lifestyle. A candle and your favorite bath soaps by the tub, a tray for your coffee pot and favorite mug on the kitchen counter, a cozy reading nook, an entertaining friendly yard — whatever fits your lifestyle and needs, we’ll go the extra mile.

We are eight critical steps away from helping you to “fall in love again” with your home!
