A home office for your husband should be masculine yet still organized.  I prefer to use darker colors for a man’s home office and leather accessories.

If you enjoyed these home office E-Design Boards, please let me know and drop a comment.

What You Need For Spring – By “Tres Chics” – Dining Room, Bedroom, and Living Room Home Decor

Spring is here!  Time to update your home decor and incorporate brighter hues and let some fresh air in.

To celebrate the start of Spring, two of my designer friends and I wanted to make it special.  The three of us have decided to express what Spring means to us using our Design Boards.

We have named our Design Team “Tres Chics” and here are the members and our Spring Design Boards:

Charisse Colbert  Charisse Colbert – CMC Design Studio

Charisse’s Design Boards are “What You Need for Spring – Dining Room, Tabletop, & Dining Storage.”

Spring Dining Room

What You Need for Spring - Tabletop

What You Need for Spring - Dining Storage

The use of wallpaper patterns with the greens, grays, and blue tones works beautifully together.  Spring design trends show the increase of floral wallpaper.  Check our Charisse’s Blog to learn more about her design boards.

Catz DiVirgilio   Catz DiVirgilio – Blondiesloft&Co

Catz’s  Design Board is “Oceanside Breakfast in Bed.”

Spring Bedroom Design

Catz has a home on the Gulf Coast, but does not spend enough time there.  The ocean and sand help her to relax.  She uses pastel colors that blend perfectly with her ocean view.  The blues, greens, and gold tones really unite the space and reinforce the relaxation effect.  Check out Catz’s Blog to learn more about her design boards.

Kate Case - Designer  And me – Kate  – Kate’s Home Staging and Interior Design

My Design Board is “What You Need for Spring – Living Room.”

Spring Living Room

Adding colorful bouquets of flowers is a quick Spring update that anyone can do.  For me, Spring is a time of rebirth and I enjoy watching all the trees fill out and flowers begin to sprout new growth.

Incorporating more earth tones into your wall paint colors in another rather inexpensive update for any homeowner.

My Living Room Design Board incorporates a monochromatic yellow flower hue, which helps to unite the space.  Floral accent pillows further coordinate the space.

The wall paint color is Benjamin Moore Affinity (AF-695) Eternity.  This paint color has blue and gray tones mixed together creating a almost neutral tone.

By welcoming nature into your home decor style, you cannot go wrong.  The use of greens, blues, yellows, and gray colors definitely get us all in the mood for Spring.

If you enjoyed viewing “Tres Chics” interpretation of Spring, more home design boards can be found on Project Decor.  We hope you enjoyed our designs.

Orange County Decorating – How to Update Your Bedroom Using E-Design!

Since Spring is almost upon us, I always begin to stir and think of ways to update my home.

Since buying a 100 year old Farm House in Orange County, New York, I have not been happy with my master bedroom.  We were unable to re-do this room prior to moving into the home a little over a year ago.

For some reason, the main bathroom and kitchen took the priority 🙂

As a home decorator, I have been creating online master bedroom design boards in the hopes of creating the perfect retreat.

Here are my four favorite master bedroom design boards:

White Master Bedroom Retreat - by Kate Case, decorator and designer

I was able to design these boards online at Project Decor.  If you are interested in creating your own home design boards, just use the Project Decor link to sign up.

So, which of the Master Bedroom design boards are your favorite?

Orange County Home Decorating – Update Your Space with Project Decor!

As an Orange County home decorator and stager, my clients always ask how can a room be updated?

In my opinion, high-end style can be achieved by mixing higher end pieces with less expensive pieces. Spending a little more money on a higher-end couch and pairing it with trendy, lower cost accent tables can completely revive a space.

Please check out Kate’s Design Shop for information on how to purchase any of the items you see below:

Orange County Home Improvement Advice – What Renovations are Really Worth It?

As a professional home stager, my client’s are always concerned about the ROI on any home improvements.

Here is an excellent graphic from that displays the value of various home renovations:

Renovations with the Best Resale Value

If you are planning on selling your home in the near future, it is always a great idea to consult with a professional home stager and Realtor who is familiar with the area.

Remember, the best time to have a home staging consultation on your home is 1 to 3 months before your Realtor posts your home’s pictures online.

Call Kate at 845-538-3623 to setup your staging consultation, our prices start at $125 for E-Staging and $150 for an in-home staging consultation.
