Interior Re-Design that Fits Your Lifestyle and Personality: An Interview with Jessica Lahaye, ASP, owner of Lily Rose Staging & Redesign, LLC

By Jessica Lahaye

Tell us a little bit about your company and the services you offer.

We are a professional Home Staging and Redesign company. We offer Home Staging for both owner occupied homes and vacant homes. We help homes sell faster and for more money.

We also offer interior Redesign services for the homeowners that need a little extra help figuring out how to make their home fit their style. We try to work with the existing architecture and furniture pieces already in the home, but may also bring a few new pieces to give it that extra pizazz. We also offer color consultations to find the right colors for both the interior and exterior of the home.

Can you briefly talk about the importance of matching the way your home is decorated with your lifestyle and personality?

It's important that your home says something about who you are and is as unique as you are. We want the homeowner to feel like their home is their castle by bringing in elements of their lifestyle and design taste and by doing so the homeowner will always be proud to show off their home to their friends and family.

What's the first step you would take to create this type of interior redesign?

I first start with an initial consultation with the homeowner(s) to determine their style and to view the home so we know what we working with. We will then discuss any issues and questions the homeowner has and offer suggestions and ideas on how to redesign the room/house. Many times this is the only step needed. If additional steps are needed we discuss at the time of the consultation.

What are the most important aspects of personality and lifestyle that should be factored into interior redesign?

Children are one of the biggest aspects of lifestyle in a redesign. There are certain items that I would not bring into a home with small children. We want to make sure the home is friendly to everyone living in it. We also try to bring in the homeowner's personality into the redesign, if the homeowner is artistic we will bring in artistic pieces, if the homeowner is more traditional, we try to keep the design more traditional.

Is there anything that people don't normally consider when it comes to redecorating their house that they should consider?

Yes, you can reuse many pieces of furniture and give them new life by accessorizing. If you are buying new furniture keep the pieces simple and classic, you can change the personality with accessories, by doing so you will get a lot more life out of the furniture. If you buy very taste specific furniture your taste may change in a few years and you may need to buy new furniture again. Also, when painting a room keep the colors fairly neutral, again you can change the personality and bring color in the room with the accessories. This way you are not repainting every time you want to change your color scheme.

What advice do you have for a household where the members have personalities and lifestyles that aren't necessarily the same?

Bring in different pieces that represent each person. Your home should be a reflection of the personalities of the people who live in it. There are no rules that you cannot mix styles and by doing so it makes the home as unique as the people in it.

What's the best way for people to contact you and your company?
