Adrienne Porter - Owner/Designer
I love to enter into a space and see the potential of it! I know that working alongside the owner or seller to explore into their lifestyle, dreams and wishes of the space...that's when the magic will happen.
I've been rearranging rooms all of my life...
We are a HSR Certified Professional home staging and interior redesign organization serving the GREATER SEATTLE area. We have completed the most comprehensive and intensive home staging and redesign certification courses in North America provided by the Home Staging Resource.
But at bit about me...I have been designing spaces since I was a little girl. Barbie's Dreamhouse was never enough for her. Well... for me. In fact, I put that house in the closet and designed her house on my playroom floor. It was massive and under constant redesign. Painstakingly and lovingly, I created living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms and nurseries for Barbie, her family and friends. I went on to study business and communications at Washington State University, even through some of my favorite classes were art history and design. I stifled the longings to pursue an artistic path and instead set my sights on marketing, which still aligned with my creative side and steered me toward my first career. Alaska Airlines hired me the week after I graduated and I enjoyed a wonderful and successful twelve years there; later independent consulting work granted me more time and flexibility while raising a family. But the walls of the boardroom, like Barbie’s pre-fab house in the closet, just wasn’t enough.
I designed several of my own homes, staged them for sale, and helped friends and family with staging, design, and organization projects. Everyone echoed what I knew in my heart, then and now, which is "this is your gift - use it." When health crisis offered me a second chance at life, quite literally, I wasted no time finally creating my dream by starting a professional staging, redesign, and organization business full-time. Leading with my heart and finally using my creative gifts; I’m now living my dream.
As a certified professional home stager and redesigner and I simply love what I do - and my clients do too. Every client and project is different, offering something special and distinct, which is one of the best parts of my job. I love to hear the one-of-a-kind stories in person's life, as people open up to me with ease. Keen observation skills and a trained eye allow me to identify strengths in spaces, like the people who inhabit them, drawing out the best results. I am an arranger, and thrive when managing situations, from the mundane to the complex; I am always looking for the best possible solution. Not matter the budget or task, I jump right into what is overwhelming and confusing to most, devising new options that yield the best results.
Quick with a smile and sense of humor, my contagious energy and enthusiasm for life is impossible to miss. Highly empathetic in nature, I have an instinctive ability to understand. I get it, change can be hard. I too have have navigated dramatically upsizing, downsizing, and starting from scratch with unlimited budgets and with very small ones. I promise to make this process fun whether you are looking to sell, redesign, or organize a home and I promise to see you and your space for the unique beauty within.
