Houzz Award

I was thrilled to be informed yesterday that Suze Interiors had received the 2018 Houzz award for “Service”. It’s one thing to do a good job for your clients, but the most important thing for me is giving great customer service while you’re doing it, which I feel really is the key to any successful […]

What is the Intended Use of Each Room?

One of the most important things to remember when you are getting your home ready to sell, is to make sure that the rooms show what they are intended to be used for. If you are using the dining room as a make shift office, turn it back into a dining room and add a […]

Home Prep Tips

This is a great colourful guide for getting your home prepped for a quick sale.  

Stunning Home Gets Transformed

This beautiful West Van home has been on the market since May unstaged with no offers. When the staged house next door sold, (staged by us) the homeowner knew it was time. I get super excited watching an empty house slowly transform into a “home”, one pretty pillow, vase & piece of artwork at a time. Will keep you […]

Invest for Success

My client in the West End of Vancouver’s downtown asked for some help……..actually the real estate agent phoned me. He was really frustrated that his well priced condo wasn’t moving & they were interested in staging. It had been on the market for a bit & the son was finally moving out to give us a […]

Edit, Add & Voila!!

When a condo has the key pieces, sometimes it is just a matter of editing what they have as far as art and accessories and bringing in a few pieces that make the room feel put together. It always amazes me how getting in the right piece of art can completely transform a room. Now […]

Bye Bye Blue

This Quebec Street townhouse in Vancouver needed to shine to command the price that the homeowner is planning on getting. The first thing to go after all of the clutter, were the blue walls in the dining area and to add a chandelier to help define the space. Once painted, it gave us a clean […]

Floating Furniture Away from the Walls

Chairs & sofas that are pushed right up against the walls make a room feel stiff, understyled and bulky. Interestingly enough, pulling furniture a few inches away from the walls will make the room appear larger. When selling your home this is very important, as square footage is so expensive in Vancouver and we want to […]

RESA Conference 2012

Last week I attended the RESA (Real Estate Staging Association) Conference in Las Vegas. To say the least, it was great!! The line up of speakers were knowledgeable, inspirational & ever so passionate about the art of Home Staging. Not to mention how well organized the conference was, it went off without a hitch. The food […]

Staging a Space That Won’t Sell

This West Side Vancouver townhouse has been on the market for several months without any offers. Walking in the front door & into an empty space is not appealing to any potential home buyers. We have several seconds to make a first impression, and how can we possibly make a good impression without furniture, artwork […]
