I have been involved in the Middletown Designer Showhouse for the past four years. Each year, a house is chosen to be restored by a team of designers. Upon completion, the house is open for public tours and events. The dining room at right was my project in 2009.
Working with Gary Mathers and Barbara Kreppel, we created a Tuscan Kitchen.
In 2011, I collaborated with faux painter, Beth Deligatti and staged the “Champagne and Pearls” formal dining room. It’s always an incredible experience working in Middletown’s Historic district and working with such talented artists and designers for this fundraising event.
See the segment I did for the 10! Show on bringing color into the home with accessories! I was also the guest designer for Kirkland’s Home Accents new store for their grand opening in Wilmington!
“I highly recommend to all property investors and those selling their house on their own to use Staged Impressions, LLC. The service was very professional and the results were awesome. We learned alot.”
