Living Room Makeover

staged living room photoCan’t seem to create a living room that feels quite right? Looking for some styling tips that will bring your living room up a notch?  Here are five ideas that can dramatically improve your living room.

  1. Move the furniture away from the walls:  The tendency is to place your furniture against the walls, but giving it a little room to breathe will make the seating area seem cozier while also making the room seem more spacious.
  2. Mix old and new pieces: Using the same furniture set to furnish an entire room can make it seem a bit sterile. Try mixing and matching different pieces and styles to give your living room a more eclectic feel.
  3. Keep everything low: Arranging photos and artwork lower on walls will make a room appear larger, and can also draw more attention to the pieces themselves.
  4. Place a bookshelf behind the sofa: It doesn’t have to be your entire personal library. Mix and match books with knick-knacks and other items to add some depth and texture to the space behind your sofa.
  5. Try a smaller coffee table: Your current coffee table is probably larger than it needs to be, and it may be dominating the room. Try downsizing to a table that can still hold magazines, a centerpiece, and a few drinks, but will also give you a bit more room to move around your furniture.

Guiding Me Every Step Of The Way

Zillow 5 Star Agent badgeJacque is an excellent asset to have whether your in the market to buy or sell your home. I used her for both my sale and purchase and each experience was refreshing. She was there guiding me every step of the way and knows a plethora of vendors if you need services done to your home to prepare it  for sale (i.e. cleaning, landscaping’ appraisal, inspectors, etc, etc). This makes it very helpful and stress free when one has other things to worry about.  Jacque is very resourceful and cares for her clients. She would be a great choice for realty needs.

Hardworking, Gracious and Approachable

Zillow 5 Star Agent badgeWe had a difficult process to say the least when selling one home and buying another all within a month. But Jacqueline was one of the major reasons it was even possible. Her knowledge base and relentless watch over the inventory of homes is how we found the home we loved, right where we wanted to  be. You will never meet a more hardworking, more gracious, and more approachable agent in this business.

She is the best!

Zillow 5 Star Agent badgeJackie Stowe is the best! She helped us find our first home in 2013. I like the fact that she really listened to us. There were always tons of offers on everything we put an offer on & we were getting out bid & discouraged! Jackie stayed on top of all the new listings-she really hustled for us & was able to find us the right home within our budget & get our closing cost paid! Buying a home was incredibly stressful, we felt as though Jackie understood our stress and cared for us during this time. We are thankful that we found her because she took EXCELLENT care of us. We are super happy with her services & will always refer people to her.
