Melissa Ross of Modest Muse Home Staging and Interior Redesign has always viewed her surroundings through a creative lens. Her family and friends took notice. Whether they needed help redecorating their homes, planning a party, or creating a festive atmosphere for the holidays, Melissa was often called upon to lend a hand, and she happily took the reins. This is how Modest Muse came to be. “When I first learned of Home Staging, and how I could make a living that encompassed all of my talents collectively”, says Melissa, “that was my eureka moment. Unbeknownst to me, this was the career I had always been working towards.”
Preparing Your Home to Sell
Melissa considers many aspects when preparing your home to sell:
- Your budget and timeline
- The feel, and style of your home
- Comparable homes in the neighborhood
- Potential target buyers
Staging begins with a 2-hour consultation. During this staging session, Melissa will walk through the inside and outside of your home with the critical eye of a potential home buyer. She will suggest design and decorating modifications that will highlight the best features of each space – transforming it into a home that buyers can see themselves living in. You may choose to do the work yourself, or decide to have Melissa ‘take the reins’ and do the modifications that are needed.
Is Your Home Already On The Market?
It’s not too late to stage. Modest Muse advises sellers to consider the low cost of staging over the high cost of a price reduction.
Staging & Redesign Services Include:
- Color Consultations
- Rearranging and repurposing existing furniture, accessories, art
- Shopping for the home
- Furnished & Vacant home staging
What Clients Say About Modest Muse
“We recently hired Melissa to stage our house in preparation to put it on the market. We asked Melissa to come in and improve on some design work our real estate agent’s designer had completed which we didn’t love. Melissa’s improvements were amazing. She respected our needs (and modest budget) and used her creativity and style and her great eye for space to bring out the best in our home.”
“We hired Melissa to help us design our home’s interior for the Christmas holiday. We had a lot of family coming in and wanted to maximize our space while ensuring our home felt festive, welcoming, and in the holiday spirit. She knocked it out of the park. Absolutely beautiful work and pricing is right on point. We plan on hiring her every year going forward.”
“Melissa Ross did such an amazing job of designing and creating usable closet space with new shelving and reorganized my very cramped, small, and cluttered condo! She saw my needs, devised a plan and now I'm organized and decluttered! Her thoughtful, caring nature and a sharp eye on current designs will bring me back to her talents again in the future! Thank you Melissa, for making my space organized and livable again!”
