In this episode of Style Soul Podcast, it’s time to stir things up by Styling with Intention.

Did you also know that by dressing in certain colors and pairing your outfits with ‘power accessories’– can bring you your heart’s desire?

It’s very true! How cool is that? That is the power of Styling with Intention.

If there is an intention you want to manifest in your life, you can activate particular ‘life areas’ in your living space with certain colors, symbols and elements. By reflecting these also in your wardrobe, you become a ‘walking attractant‘ for your wish.

Styling with Intention is based on Feng Shui principles.

There are 9 life areas that are associated within each living space or place of business:

  • Career and Life Path
  • Helpful People and Travel
  • Creativity and Children
  • Love, Marriage and Relationships
  • Fame and Reputation
  • Wealth and Prosperity
  • Family and New Beginnings
  • Skills and Knowledge
  • Health and Well-Being

Each week, I will be giving you power tips for each life area to help you attract what you want into your life. How amazing is that?!

This is the power of Styling with Intention!

It’s so cool to see the amazing things that happen when putting these into place! You want to stay tuned!

Rank #2: SSP 035: No Fail Furniture Tricks That Impress

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of Style Soul Podcast,  you’ll learn furniture tricks that impress potential buyers.

Did you know that the placement of the furniture in your rooms can either attract or repel potential buyers? It’s true!

Furniture is such an important component when it comes to staging or restyling your space. When furniture is too oversized, it can make the rooms appear smaller. You want to focus on maximizing your space and emphasize the square footage.

When furniture is intentionally placed to create a good sense of flow in your home, a healthy and welcoming vibe is created. This is what potential buyers want to FEEL when they come to look at your home when it’s on the market.

Remember- potential buyers want to ENVISION themselves living there and sense ‘feeling good’ energy in their home.

When your home is successfully staged with style and proper furniture placement is set,  you create a ‘no place like home’ feeling and at the same time, stand out from the crowd.

In today’s episode, I share some no fail furniture tricks that will be sure to impress prospects. Tune in and get the scoop.

You’ll discover:

  • A VITAL position for your furniture to be placed when entering a room.
  • Areas NOT to place the bed in a bedroom that can be disruptive to sleep!
  • A MISTAKE to avoid with furniture placement when staging your home.
  • What ACTION steps to take with your current furniture.

Thanks for listening! If you have liked this episode, ‘Like it’ and share it with your friends!

How do you currently feel with the furniture placement of your home? Which of these will you try first? Share your comments below. I’d love to hear from you!

Rank #11: SSP 008: Avoid This Home Decorating Sin

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of Style Soul Podcast, I will share with you one major home decorating ‘sin’ some of us are guilty of.

No worries, time to change that!

This is especially important if you are staging your home to sell. You want to make sure NOT to do this one!

Ps- I’ll give you a hint- it belongs on the bed in the boudoir ;).

Truth is-you don’t need an enormous budget to give your space a chic look! Many times we feel we need to ‘sacrifice’ style for the sake of our wallet. But this is far from the truth!

An elegant, voguish look can be created at ANY budget! It’s about shopping smart and finding creative bargains and amazing deals to dress up your space even if you are crunched for cash.

Let’s turn that around by sprucing up your ‘inner style’ and shifting your mindset from ‘I can’t’ to ‘I CAN’!

Put the following ‘Style Wisdom’ steps into place for yourself:

  • Give yourself a budget that you want to spend.
  • Set the INTENTION to find great décor items in your price range. Be on an ‘internal style mission’. You will see that when you put your mind to it, you will discover fabulous finds wherever you go.
  • Shift your mindset from ‘I can’t afford this’ to ‘I am making my space look fantastic at a price I am comfortable with’. Remove the lack factor and focus on abundant style!
  • Pick colors, fabrics, textures that you love and reflect YOU and your personality. This is your personal style décor signature! Restyle it until your heart’s content!

Sometimes we resort to these ‘home decorating sins’ because we feel we can’t afford to make our space look great. You can make it look AMAZING even on a shoestring budget- I guarantee it!

Again, avoid this home decorating sin.

Instead, check out these cool resources to restyle your home for a stunning look:


TJ Maxx – Marshalls – HomeGoods


Christmas Tree Shops

WayFair

Amazon Curtains
