Mercer Island Staging


Our goal was to keep everything in this home white, light and bright. We had to show off the great spaces and keep the rooms as bright as possible.

Tree Trimming

I married into to these special little angels that have been attacked by my cats. This little one just lost an arm yesterday. Isn't it pretty how her hair is tossed across her body?

She looks bundled up in our freezing Seattle weather.

And the simple homemade ornaments by my girls. Thankfully they love pink. A colour which is favored by this middle sister.

Let this be a lesson to the mean people out there.


White: It holds the potential to move toward every other color and this makes it a good choice for new beginnings, and development in any direction.  (From Crystal-Cure)

~purification of thoughts or actions

My Inspiration


So fun to run into this photo online. This is the inspiration for painting my dining room table a high gloss light blue, the chairs a high gloss white and the upholstery different on the end chairs. When I went in search of the discontinued Martha Stewart paint color I found out that it is actually a GREEN! So I went in search of my own blue.

Would love to dazzle you even more with professional photographs. But you get the idea. Love that I took a risk-believe me it was scary. If the blue clashes with one of my sets of china then I add a cool heavy upholstery-grade white vinyl table cloth. It creates a modern twist with the ornate-ness of it all.

My dining set was found at auction by Lisa Gleason. It was a 70's stained wood with red crushed velvet upholstery.
