Staging Time – Clutter to the Rescue!

Leave a comment

Staging time, time to open up your doors and throw your listing sign up in the yard….(my apologies to Semisonic)…

Time to call Lynn Rahn at Clutter Savannah!

Anyone who knows the fabulous Lynn, knows she is a true talent (see the before and after of my Thunderbolt house HERE).

The lady got it goin’ on!

We are going to do a bohemian-themed style for the Isle of Hope Cottage — Lynn selected some great pieces that will work together to bring about that boho feeling I want to convey.

You can see all the pieces we are working with from my house HERE!

See you at the Open House!

Love Letter to…Clutter Savannah

Leave a comment

Clutter, Clutter, CLUTTER!!!!

How do I love thee, let me count the ways:

1) Because you know my personality so well,

2) Because you know how to dress (my house!),

3) Because you always know how to bring out the best in me, errr, my home(!),

4) Because you make me push my (design) limits,

5) Because you make me try something new,

6) Because you remind me of what I love — rehashing and rearranging my favorite things in a new way!

Lynn, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU(!!!) for helping so much at my new old house in Thunderbolt (and Ardsley!!). I honestly would never have tried the furniture arrangement if it weren’t for you! 

Here’s a glimpse of some of Lynn’s BRILLIANT work at my Thunderbolt digs.

If you don’t know Lynn, her daughter Brooke, and Johnny, their crew is insanely talented. Not only does their retail outfit offer personalized design services (including staging, and fluffing what you already have), the store offers beautiful lighting options, furniture, original art, photography, and a plethora of gorgeous consignment pieces that all have their own style and patina (read: no mass-produced junk from China). It really is one of my favorite places to go in town (and now that Maison de Macaroons has moved downtown, I no longer need to stay away!).

This is my first love letter to Clutter. I hope you all won’t gag or roll your eyes when I say that THERE WILL BE MORE!

Oh, Happy Day! Cherry Picked is home to all things fabulous!

Always a find at Cherry Picked -- its my source for great deals on barely worn designer duds!

Finds galore at this Broughton Street designer consignment store. Brands start at J.Crew and go to St. John, Prada, and don’t even get me started on the Chanel boots I had to walk away from (they ALMOST fit!).

I walked in to say, “hi” to Casey and her fabulous new pooch, Miss Sadie (a rescue like Tondee), and walked out with some PERFECT Lily Pulitzer wedges, a lemon yellow Nanette Lepore dress, & some crazy short-shorts that instantly put me in a good mood.  All this & I paid less than HALF a dress anywhere else. SCORE!

If you love designers but can’t swallow the prices, Cherry Picked is for you!

Visit Casey & Miss Sophie 6 days a week (closed Mondays) & by appointment at 402 W Broughton Street & “Like” Cherry Picked on Facebook to see all their new goodies! Believe me, its addictive but worth it!
