Katie said:  “I feel so blessed to have had Kristie’s help with our home. She really listened when I told her what I was looking for, and she had lots of ideas to help me think outside of the box. The paint colors and room arrangements are wonderful. I enjoy having people over more often now because our home is warm, inviting, and reflects who we are.”

Alice said:  “Kristie Barnett staged our house and we had an offer in 11 days. I truly believe her help made the home more attractive to a variety of buyers.”

Jill said:  “You did such a phenomenal job putting the blog post together about our home.  I just have to tell you that it made me feel overwhelmed with gratefulness to you for how you have helped me whip this house into shape and get rid of that anxiety causing “tornado environment” that we lived in for way too long!  When I saw the before pics on the post it seriously surfaced major anxious feelings and I questioned how in the world I lived like that for so long.  You were/are truly a life saver!!  You are so good at what you do and it obviously shows.  Thank you for helping me!”

Debbie said: “With a few cosmetic improvements, furniture rearrangement, and accessory changes, you turned our home into a showplace. We received offers quickly and made more on the sale of our home than we imagined in this market. We could not have had the success we did without The Decorologist ‘s help.”

Jennifer said:  “I cannot tell you how happy I am!  I feel like new life has been breathed into the house.  That’s the only way I can describe it.  I had been dreading moving the girls’ room, but now I absolutely cannot wait to do it.  I wish I could get those walls painted tomorrow and get them in there! I am thrilled.  Absolutely, positively thrilled.  Thank you SO MUCH for all of your amazing ideas and inspiration!  I feel like such a huge burden has been lifted already! ”

Lydia said:  “Kristie, thanks so much for taking the time to come down and help me with the house. Your hot streak continues since we got a contract the very next weekend!”

Paula said:  “It looks fabulous!  Does it feel good to always be right?  Thank you for your expert help.”

Mary said:  “The Decorologist was able to use the things I already had to create a look that is polished, personal, and that I absolutely love! It makes me so happy, I cannot explain. It feels like me.”

Marian said:  “The Decorologist made us think about our home in a totally new light.  She helped us transform seldom used rooms into some of our family’s new favorite spots.  Her color sense unified our existing, chaotic decor into a cohesive whole. She earned our trust through spot-on advice, attention to our individual tastes, and impressive dollar-stretching.  Her work has given us the confidence that our home has finally become a truer reflection of us!”

Tim said:  “Thanks for your work on the house. It looks great (and my wife’s on cloud nine).  Does it hurt to be so awesome?”
