Reimagine Your Workspace – 5 Secrets of Productivity and Feng Shui

Just a few months ago we featured Villa 9W – one of the Duncan Avenue Design Studio projects and analyzed it from the Feng Shui perspective. I like using Feng Shui concepts to make overly complicated scientific ideas more relatable and down-to-earth. It is fascinating how our knowledge of home design circled back thousands of years just to see that we’ve had it all figured out! Well, another thing just happened: the new generation of the workforce (Millennials) is in!

Home Staging 101 with Realtor Jessica Hill: Start with a Deep Decluttering Process

To get your home staged for a fast sale, you need to start by deeply decluttering the rooms. When you declutter a home, you make it look bigger like it has more living space, which is something that appeals to potential buyers. It also prepares you for letting go and moving on the process and lets you show off your home. Most people use some rooms in their homes for things they weren’t intended to use the room for – and that can make a house look cramped to a buyer.

Home Staging 101 with Realtor Miranda Weinberger: Focus on Rooms Where Staging Makes the Biggest Difference

Not every single room in your home needs to be staged. They need to be clean and well-presented, but there are some rooms in the home that don’t make or break a sale. For example, while you want a nice looking laundry room, that one doesn’t carry the same selling power that other rooms do. You want to start with the entrance to your house.
