Styling Your Home…it’s time to take action!

I don’t know if your life is anything like mine, but in the winter I am simply at home more often. Or maybe I should say, I am inside my home more often. I run around like everyone else all week and spend most of my daylight hours in the woods or at a ski area on the weekends, but the doors to the deck have been locked and unopened for more than three months now. I often long for opening the windows to welcome the fresh spring and summer breezes, but for now, I’ll find beauty in the icicles hanging from the sills.

However, spending this time inside I think it’s pretty natural to start paying attention to the details of your home. You may notice the eggplant purple accent wall that the previous owners gifted you or the mantle adorned with expired holiday cards or the cluttered bookshelves that need a little love. But, is that where it stops? At the noticing? Maybe it’s time to take it to the next step…the ACTION step.

Winter is the perfect time to re-style your home and this is one of the services that we offer at Moov Consultants. Basically, we come to your house and you walk us through your home sharing the things you love and the things you don’t. Through this process, we are able to gather a sense of your style, how you live in your space and what you need help with. We essentially are a set of fresh eyes, looking at your own furnishings, your artwork, your accessories, your paint colors, your furniture layout and lighting. Then, through this outside lense, we are able to offer advice on ways to improve your space. It’s a really fun process and clients are often amazed at how quickly their home can be transformed into a space that they love. Check out this Before and After photo below. There is still more work to do, but by changing the layout of the furniture an entirely new look was created.

Moov Consultants can help transform your present space without losing touch of your style and personality.

Featured project.

We know that you’re not supposed to have favorites, but the project in Waitsfield that we have been working on has quickly become simply that: our fav! It’s a unique situation because the homeowners purchased the property and then left the country for 4 months. During that time, we have spent endless hours planning, designing, managing contractors, accepting deliveries, and selecting all of the home furnishings, paint colors, light fixtures, flooring, and furniture to create a beautiful and livable home for our lovely clients. Even though the job is not complete, here are a few photos to show the progression of our work. Check it out:

Let us take it from here.

That’s a wrap. The moving trucks arrived at 10:00 am and the house was unpacked and ready for the homeowners by 4:00 pm. But maybe I should be a little more specific.

Our clients closed on their new home yesterday, we met them after the closing for a walk-through of their space to get an overview of their needs. After spending about an hour walking from room to room, we were able to not only get a sense of their needs but also a peek into their style and overall design plan. We then shopped for requested items and met the movers the next day at 10am.

As the movers unloaded, we began to unpack. We asked the homeowner if she knew where she wanted her dishes, pots and pans, cutlery etc. At this point, after juggling a job, managing a family, and dealing with the last minute stresses of actually signing the paperwork to close on the house, she was ecstatic to be able to look at us and say: you decide. We happily agreed to her request. We unpacked and created a sensible kitchen layout including a warm decor to make the clients feel like they were truly settled. We then hung curtains in the dining room and filled playroom shelves with kids’ crafts and family photos. We made suggestions for furniture layout and discussed the options for changing a few paint colors.  And then, unpacked a little more.

If you’ve ever moved, you realize the emotional, financial and overall intensity of the process. When 60+ bins are unpacked for you, your process just got a whole lot more manageable.
