Q:  What is the difference between Home Styling and Home Staging?
A:    Styling is for staying and staging is for selling the home.  They require two very different approaches.  When you want to sell your home, you want it to appeal to the largest amount of people possible and staging a home for sale includes removing the personal touches (like family photos) and neutralizing the space.  You want people viewing the home to be able to imagine themselves living there.

Studio J offers Home RE-styling.  I want your home to reflect YOU and encourage you to make it personal for your family and your life.  My goal is to understand your personal style and help you create a home that you love.  Your home needs to function well for you and your family as well as reflect your style.  I apply the “use-what-you-have” model to create a whole new space.  We will roll up our sleeves and rearrange, edit and accessorize using what you already have in your home. When we are done, the room will feel brand new and will be a personalized and original space so you can Fall in Love with your home again.

 Q:  When is a Custom Slipcover the right choice?
 A:    Studio J specializes in custom, fit-like-a-glove slipcovers.  A custom slipcover is an investment in a piece of furniture and a beautiful solution, but there are several things to consider when making the decision.
