You have actually made me happier to be in this home, and I cannot thank you enough for that! You have such a gift in helping people live with their homes with what they have! Thank you! Bloomingdale, IL

Hi GraceAnn......well, you are a hit with my friends.  Everyone has been coming over to see the "magic" that you performed and were duly impressed.  We all thought this room was a lost cause -- until YOU showed up. I absolutely love what you did......thank you so much for helping me to love this house more!! And, I did order the chandelier below that you suggested.  I think it will make a difference over that table. Thank you so much for taking the time to find this lamp for me...... Thank you, again, GraceAnn!  I am a believer in what you can do..... JL Bloomingdale, IL .

I re-visit the room more frequently and find myself using the desk area to get work done. It’s wonderful to have my own space. My husband was so amazed we didn’t need to go out an buy all new furniture and accessories. He actually agreed with the ‘wish list ‘ and I feel more confident that I will select the right items. The Guidance and visual examples you showed were so helpful to me. Western Springs

I was concerned that I didn’t have enough ‘right’ furniture for either space. I was afraid my room’s wouldn’t be worth your time and effort. I was Wrong! The redesign makes an amazing first impression when people come in my home. I didn’t realize the space could be used this way. It’s so much more inviting and I want to sit in the room rather than just walk through it. Western Springs

After my husband saw what our bedroom looked like he even said he was ready to paint! We’ve been in this house for 2 years and thought we needed to save $$ for a remodel. It’s amazing how we can feel more settled just by placing the furniture in a better places. Our room isn’t as big a project as we first thought. Can’t wait to paint and finally settle into our new space. Also we both seem to be sleeping better too! It feels right. Thank you! LK, Western Springs

GraceAnn and crew, I want to tell you how much I LOVE my family room.  My husband absolutely loves it, too, so you and your team hit a home run!  🙂  I keep walking over to the doorway and continue to take it all in and marvel at what you did in such a short amount of time.  I didn't know that room could look so good!  It really looks and feels amazing in there.  It feels spacious, yet cozy, and cheerful. The service that you provide is an amazing way to breathe new life into a room/house without expending a lot of cash.  You came up with so many fresh ideas that surprised me (and I loved) which made it even more fun.  The little changes that you made elsewhere in the house are also really great.  There isn't anything that I would change!   🙂 LJ, Lisle

I wanted to share a great experience that I had last week with GraceAnn of Yours Redesigned. My family room was looking very tired... after many years in this house, I knew I needed to do something in there but really did not know where to begin. I did not want to spend much money and I had a difficult time purging. So many books, pictures, trinkets that held memories were difficult for me to purge from the room. I needed outside help to update the look. GraceAnn first came out and met with me for a consultation and we discussed what were some of our needs for the room and she shared some of her tentative ideas with me. She then returned about a week later to do the restyling. In an afternoon my family room was reborn and looks amazing! I left and came back in when it was finished I was absolutely astonished at what she was able to do with existing items in my home. She also listened and responded to the needs that I expressed for the room. If you are looking to stage your home before selling or are just a bit lost like me, I highly recommend her services. Please feel free to PM me for before/ after pictures if you're interested. It's been so much fun to come home each day and get excited to see that room! ~Linda J. from Oak Hill South

Thanks so much for the beauty you're helping us create!!   ~ C.J. Willowbrook

Those lights at 208 Rosewood look amazing. And your paint colors rock. Thanks for your help!

A simple “thank you” does not seem appropriate for what you have given our family!  You were more than generous with your time, and I will forever be grateful to you.  I don’t know how I would have gotten through this move without you…starting with the staging.  I would have wasted years as well as a lot of money trying to accomplish what you did in a matter of hours!  You are so talented, and I appreciate your patience.  Thanks again, and I look forward to passing your name along to everyone I can! Warmly,

I was in awe of how beautiful the bedrooms were!  The office is the smallest bedroom, yet it looks so much larger now.  I love the way you staged my diploma and awards on the bookshelves.  And thank you so much for the suggestion to display my beautiful Shaklee products on the bookshelves rather than hiding them in the closet.  The closet is or the junkier stuff! Now that I’ve experienced home staging and color consultation the most dramatic and obvious change come from the hone staging.  But the color consultation was the foundation of the project.  So I benefited from both.  I’ve been so afraid of applying color, as you well know.  Everything was vanilla before.  So I really appreciate you suggesting and challenging me to try something new.  I love, love, love the Spring Violet in my office!

This was the easiest and best experience I have had with someone helping me decorate any part of my house!

Also would recommend because sometimes you can’t see the forest through the trees especially in your own home.  You come, and go, clean and entertain and envy someone else’s room.  If you hire someone and they just use your items with their skill and suddenly you have the room of your dreams and didn’t even know it was possible.

I was really hating the room.  I was considering selling my couch and love seat in a garage sale.  There was a wall hanging, rectangular piece of art that I just didn’t know where to hang, was going to sell that too!  Plus the room was heavy to one side and I didn’t know what to do with this one corner — Now I LOVE the room.  I call it my throne room.  Sit in there all the time and not selling a thing!

Wanted you to know that we had put out house on the market on Monday this week and had 4 offers by Tuesday.   Thank you!!!  A job well done!  Now we are working on an offer for our new space.  Which I will be calling you for help in arranging!

GraceAnn, Thank you SO very much for joining Starting Point realty for our Thursday’s “lunch and Learn”!  Everyone agrees you were one of the best seminars and we loved learning more about  utilizing home design in real estate sales.  We appreciate your time and look forward to working with you in the near future! Sincerely

No doubt, this is a tough market! But your staging expertise does it again and again to help the the sellers sell their homes.  Many times, I feel my listings sell in below average market time with the assistance of your staging ability. You are very careful about respecting the client’s budget, and making the most of what the client is willing to accomplish.  I truly believe that with your help and proper detailing of the home, aggressive marketing and correct pricing make a winning combination and help a seller attain the highest dollar in today’s market!

Hi Grace Ann, I have taken one of your classes in the past so gladly get your emails. Know I can ask a realtor but remember how dynamic you were at the seminar. Think I can get some great help from you!
