YOU ONLY GET ONE CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION
It's a universal truth, first impressions are everything. The first impression is what sets the tone and it starts at the front door. Dress your home for success to create a lasting impression!
RE-IMAGING WHATS ALREADY THERE
MIXANDMATCHINTERIORS.COM started as a favor back in 2012 while helping a friend edit and organize their home. The favor turned into a full time hobby and ultimately a mission to fluff and beautify as many homes in the Pittsburgh area as possible!
Anyone who knows me knows that "I break for open houses" I love peeking inside peoples homes! Yet many times I find myself underwhelmed with the presentation. For me, as a longtime event and marketing executive, it's second nature to want a little razzamatazz. Don't we all need a little sparkle in our lives!
So why do so many stop short at the front door? I realized that most people assume anything more is going to take way too much time and an additional boat load of money!
Well it can, if you don't know how to do it!
However, the sale or purchase of a home represents a family's largest investment. Listing your home without giving some thought to how it will be perceived can cost so much more in the long run. Even the best sellers can't move a home that is not appealing to a buyers senses; and again it all starts at the front door.
For many years, I’ve helped people who started out as friends and became clients with designing their space on a dime. Mixing and matching the old with the new to create inviting and marketable spaces.
From the initial consultation to switching a rug. Sometimes all it takes is a few dollars and a set of fresh eyes!

MEET THE SUPER MODEL
Have you ever walked into a model home and fell in love at first sight? I know I have! Savvy home developers are keenly aware of ways to connect with buyers emotions and it starts at the front door. The table is set, the fire is crackling, cookies just came out of the stainless double oven. BUT HOLD ON....not so fast....during the sales pitch it becomes clear the crackling fireplace is "an option", the double-oven is a stove, the molding is an upgrade and the beautiful furnishings...well those came all the way from a New York design firm!
Meanwhile your listing has a double oven, a fireplace, good solid construction and furniture that a buyer can purchase and still no offers. So why the model and not you? It all comes back to that FIRST IMPRESSION! The slightest details can make the biggest difference. Whether you are designing to sell or just want to add some sparkle to your current space it's the little touches that make the most difference when it comes to impacting the senses and creating an environment to reap bigger rewards.
