Sheron Cardin's Input...: Another Talent Joins Active Rain and Jumps Right In!

I have been an interior designer for over 27 years and I have always taught my clients the principles I used while decorating their home so they may enjoy decorating too. The home staging trend in residential real estate is a great way to reach more people every day and what I enjoy the most is they are learning the basics of good design through staging. It is my dream for every person to know the joy and pride of living in a decorated home.

Another Talent Joins Active Rain and Jumps Right In!

Everyone, I would like you to meet Christine Craig. She is an Interior Designer from Santa Barbara (we all know about Ellen's Estate...was it you Christine?) Christine is new to the staging aspect of decorating and I know she will get the support she is looking for from the rain forest.

Christine just jumped right in asking the BIG questions Your-first-staged-home, To Store or Not to Store, Staging Business Name, and ASP!?!!. and has already received some generous comments and support I promised her she would find here. Thank you stagers and agents for making me look good .)

Christine, we look forward to all your questions and contributions. You are going to be a great asset to the AR community!
