From Curb to Closet
The concept of home staging is the creative and artistic presentation of a home for the sole purposes of maximizing its selling features with an end result of a shorter market time and a higher selling price.
Simple staging techniques may include rearranging furniture and decor to enhance the homes flow and appeal. More advanced techniques might include paint, floor coverings, or new art and accessories to give the home a more powerful presentation.

I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Southern Oregon State College and majored in Photography and Design. Shortly after that I began working as a Visual Merchandise Manager with the Bon Marche'and Macys managing all visual and display elements for the Oregon and southern Washington region. After 24 years experience of staging major department stores I opened INTERIOR MOTIFS in 2006 doing Home Staging,Color Consulting,and Interior Restyling with much enjoyment, passion and success!
"Thank you for staging our most recent listing. Our clients loved working with you, and they couldn't believe how great their house looked once you did your magic. We were going to have to sell a vacant home, because our clients had already moved to Portland, which is why we recommended your service. The outcome was well worth it! The way you furnished the home turned what could have been an average ranch-style home into a modern piece of art! Your staging had a great impact because we sold the home in 3 days at exactly the price the seller's wanted! We wish all of our sellers would follow your advice, and we will send them your way. The Karandy & Dunn Team at Keller Williams."
My client and I have been extremely happy with the quality of work that you have done for us. When we called you to stage this house, you were very responsive and were able to complete the work in a very timely manner. I will be happy to refer you to anyone looking for this type of work in the future.Stephanie Lebold Keller Williams Realty,
"Interior Motif is awesome. Shannon transformed my listing from bare to magnificent. My sellers were very happy with how the house turned out and on top of it the vacant home sold in less than 45 days after it was staged. Don't delay, stage all your listings today, Shannon tailored to my sellers needs perfectly."Ashley Westling, Broker
Interior Motifs provides a great service to both Sellers and Buyers. Shannon listens to the Sellers & the Brokers to really hear their goals and she consults with honest input regarding what needs to be done to show the home best. Especially appreciated is Shannon's ability to emphasize the comfort & beauty of the home without over-emphasizing the staging, drawing attention away from the house & creating the atmosphere of a showroom.
A big thank you to Shannon M, Sims of Interior Motifs for transforming our 3,571 square foot space into the house we love coming home to. She helped us 'zero in' on the right choices of color, fabric, textures and dacor. She choose gorgeous furnishings that truly reflect our taste and lifestyle. And we kept within budget.
Shannon has a tremendous collaborative style and is a sheer delight to work with. Throughout the project she was thoughtful and respectful of our ideas and concerns, listening carefully before offering suggestions. She is an excellent communicator and is dependable in her follow-through. Her professional attitude, sense of humor and enthusiasm made a large project into a very enjoyable experience. Her keen eye and talent were beyond our expectation. We cannot recommend her too highly! chris and Laurie
"Shannon was professional, friendly and did a fantastic job! My clients (who
were sellers) said they couldn't believe the difference - in fact, they didn't
know their house could ever look that great! Shannon's suggestions for
updating and then her decorating helped the house to sell in just 2 weeks.
Thank you Shannon!"Victoria Whitman, "
On February 4th of 2010, in one of the worst housing down turns in years, I decided it was time to sell one of my companies rental homes in a beautiful area in South East Eugene. It had no back yard and a living room that was hard for almost everyone to see how to best lay it out and take advantage of the fireplace and view. My realtor, Barbara West of Windermere, suggested that I hire Shannon Sims of Interior Motif to stage the house.
Like most people, I was hesitant to spend even more money to sell my home. Barbara informed me that the majority of the homes she has sold in this down turn market were staged and Interior Motif would do a great job for me. I am so glad I listened to my realtor and took her suggestion to hire Shannon. Even though I was out of state, we worked out all the details on the phone and through emails. Shannon put her furnishings in the home on February 7 and on April 4th my realtor brought me an offer. There is no doubt in my mind that the combination of Barbara West of Windermere and Shannon Sims of Interior Motif were the reason I got an offer so fast in such a down turn market.
When it comes time to sell another house, I will not hesitate even for a minute to hire either of these fine ladies to accomplish my personal or company goals. Sincerely yours, Brian Lansing, President of Lansing Management Inc.
