Owner, Eye to Eye Interiors, LLC
Graduated in August 2007, 5-Day Redesign and Staging
Eye to Eye Interiors, LLC was founded out of an energy and enthusiasm for helping homeowners revitalize their living spaces without breaking the bank. GraceAnn shares that same type of energy and enthusiasm providing a wealth of information, hands-on experience and access to great resources – resources we use every day we’re on the job.
The reward was immediate after taking GraceAnn’s course. In August 2007, my husband and I needed to sell our condo. It had been on the market for 50 long days when I finished GraceAnn’s 5-Day Redesign and Staging course. After taking the class, I saw our own property in a new light and before the next showing, I applied the redesign and staging techniques I had just learned. Ten days later, we had an offer – at asking price.

Owner, Beyond Redesign
Graduated in Oct/Dec 2009, Redesign and Staging
My clients knew that decorating was not their strength so they called Beyond Redesign.
For the lighter room, we changed out the desk to make a more substantial home office within the family room as requested. For the red and green family room, we replaced the rug with another rug within the same room to better accent the furniture. In both rooms, we restlyled the furniture placements and added additional accessories as needed to render each room the warm and inviting family entertainment area that the owners were seeking. Accessories included throw, pillows, wall decor and decorative accents.
One of my client’s reaction to her Entire Home Redesign: “Beyond Redesign lived up to its name – going beyond expectations and beyond what I thought was possible with our existing furniture and decor. It is such a pleasure to walk into my house now.”
