Redesign a Home: Before and After

During my 5-day Interior Redesign and Home Staging Class, students learn through classroom and hands-on experience. They use what they learn in the morning, during their classroom time, and apply it in a real client’s home in the afternoon.  The assignments vary; they may be required to stage a home to sell or redesign a house. The purpose of a redesign is to pull a home together in a fresh new way, starting with the homeowner’s belongings, and adding any elements they wish to include.

Create Your Dream Home Office

I recently had the opportunity to redesign the home office of Melanie Cerone, Ph.D., who offers Canine Behavior Consulting. First, I want to dispel some myths you may have about a home office:

  1. They do not have to consist of furniture that no one wants.
  2. Your home office should represent you! If you want a feminine look, go for it, and create the vision you have in your mind.
  3. Your home office can be practical and beautiful!

Melanie wanted a feminine yet professional look using a color palette of taupe, gray, pink, and white. The result is stunning!

If you need help creating a room in your home, please give me a call Redesign Right, LLC610.955.8202 or email, and we can get started!

Redesign: The Quick Solution for your Home Decorating Dilemmas

As we begin October, it’s a good time to look at your home checklist before the crazy holiday season begins. What does that look like for you? Take stock of your home, walk around and with fresh-eyes ask yourself, “Am I happy with the way my home looks?” If you find you need a new look, consider a home redesign! Fortunately, Redesign Right offers an hourly option for the do-it-yourself project or a one-day full-service package. You decide what would work for you and your budget; no project is too small or large for us to handle!

We can help with:

  • decorating a single room or an entire home.
  • space planning.
  • recommendations for furniture arrangement, lighting, artwork, window dressings, accessories and finishing touches.
  • support with remodeling choices for additions, kitchen and bath renovations (tile, flooring, countertops, etc.).
  • paint color and color palette selection.
  • shopping assistance available with or without you (furniture, window treatments, lighting, artwork, and accessories).
  • incorporate your cherished possessions and current furniture into a lovely design.

Let Redesign Right get you started in the right direction before the holiday frenzy starts and help give stale rooms a strong foundation that flows correctly and have the proper accessories for pop and excitement.

Recent testimonial:

Hiring Redesign Right was the best decision that I made, and I’ve been blessed with Debbie’s guidance styling two homes. I first met Debbie when we were considering downsizing.  She quickly & expertly went room by room to advise staging ideas; our house sold in 4 days! She has exactly what I was looking for–energy, enthusiasm, great ideas and a wealth of knowledge and access to anything and everything in the design space. She got me to step out of my preconceived idea of what I thought I wanted for our space. I am so happy she did! Six months later, my husband and I moved into a smaller home and needed to combine styles, with less furniture and décor, for a fresh new feel. It seemed a daunting task to us but not for Debbie! She was instrumental in helping my husband, and I finish several rooms. We had a lot of the core furniture, but the room did not feel “done.” She came up with a game plan, incorporated some of our existing furniture and some new items such as window treatments, rug, lighting, etc. She’s patient and when we didn’t like something, would come back with new options.

I am so impressed with her knowledge and style. Debbie has impeccable taste and an incredible ability to envision how space should be reconfigured and redesigned. She’s easy to work with and is always mindful of our budget. She is flexible in coming up with creative solutions and helping us prioritize, and I especially appreciated the times that she sat us down, explained the motivations behind her design choices, and was honest about the negative ramifications when we were about to deviate from the design specs. Her honest guidance and advice helped us reach a better result than I could have imagined, and I know for sure that I will be contacting Redesign Right first and foremost for my future projects. We are truly enjoying the lovely home we’ve created together. It brings us beauty, comfort, and joy! I highly recommend her and am grateful for her continued support. – Karen S.

Last week’s class was the most intense, challenging, yet invigorating and motivating experience I have had in the past 30 years.

Here’s how the Ready-Move-Design Package works:

  1. During the consultation, we will discuss the move-in schedule, details, and review your decorating style and expectations. We will discuss additional decorating requirements and wall color as well as a color scheme for the new home. We will talk about the overall personality of the home making sure to incorporate unique artwork and family heirlooms into the design.
  1. Once we determine a plan, the client secures their favorite movers and moves in! Once everything has arrived, and boxes are unpacked, it is time to schedule your one-day Redesign!
  1. DAY OF REDESIGN – Redesign Rights arrives in the morning with trained designers and magically works all day creating beautiful spaces based on your criteria and wishes. At the end of the day you return home for the big reveal (just like on TV)! You enter into an entirely settled, beautifully decorated home! What we do is magical!

What happens during a redesign?

Sitting AreaIn my last Interior Redesign and Home Staging class, I hired a friend to come in and take photos during the redesign. Afterward, she was telling me about the things she learned, and I asked her if she wouldn’t mind writing an article for me that I could share with my readers. It’s fun to hear from an outside observer, and here are her words:

It’s hard work doing a redesign.

Have you watched those design in a day shows where they come in with new furniture and accessories and create a stunning result? Debbie’s challenge is that she works with what the homeowner already owns and has to produce a stunning result in a day! Debbie’s trained eye scans the house for any items, always looking for the right material, color and size to use in a room. The team of redesigners works with what the homeowner already owns, plus any items that they may have purchased for the redesign. Debbie updates the room and offers a fresh look, and the result is incredible to see.

There’s a reason when a room doesn’t look right.

There are rules for where things should and should not be placed. Never in my life have I seen people agonize over an angle of where the couch should go. There are good reasons for this level of striving to get it right; it affects the overall look. To you or I, we eyeball things and decide if it looks good or not. We may not know why or we simply are never happy with the way it looks. There are guidelines to use for size, color, and placement and though I don’t know what the rules are seeing the finished result from a professional redesigner has made me very appreciative of those rules!

Hanging items on the wall should be measured.

I watched a group of redesigners as they planned out, measured, and appropriately hung a gallery wall that looked stunning when completed. Each picture was measured and hung with specific procedures, it was incredible to see the process, and it made me appreciate that just winging it, which has been my general motto, is not the best way to hang anything.

The reveal is just like on TV.

Imagine leaving your house in the morning leaving everything bare, and all your accessories piled in one room and coming home to a different home. It was the most beautiful thing to watch the expression of absolute disbelief as they walk around their house, seeing all of their wonderful things, placed in a fresh and useful arrangement. I’ll have to admit, even a little emotional.
