Home Sweet Home by Jessica Miller

Well the last seven months around the Miller/Lemmo home has been eventful to say the very least. Last Fall, when we found out I was pregnant we dove head first into home renovations.  Luckily for me, Tony (my partner) is hybrid between Martha Stewart and Bob Villa.  And luckily for him, I am really talented general contractor i.e. - picking out interior finishes, furniture and decor.  Here's an overall view of everything that has been completed thus far in our 66 year old Waveland Woods home. Stay tuned for room by room details with progress photos and details of what was used and where we found it.

4941 Urbandale Ave Transformation by Jessica Miller

I started teaming up with the talented Rally Cap Properties team late last Summer.  Since then, I've staged a handful of their properties around Des Moines. I am always super impressed with their professionalism, talent and visions for each home.  Recently, they asked me if I would be interested in leading the design process and stage an upcoming flip in Beaverdale. Of course, I agreed! Check out how the charming mid-century home transformed below.

Thumbtack has helped me grow my home staging business in so many ways. So it was a complete honor to be picked as one of their pros to present to Meredith Corporate this morning. Thumbtack is an perfect platform to find a professional to help you with projects ranging from plumbing to a makeup artist. 
Thank you for everything, Thumbtack! 💥

8276 Aspen Drive by Jessica Miller

Last Thursday, I staged this new modern home in the West Des Moines on Aspen Drive. I got to go with a more masculine look to match it's city loft look.  It was definitely fun to stray from the all white/neutral look that I usually choose to balance the home.  Unfortunately for you, this listing sold already on Saturday. 

1660 SE Greenbriar Circle by Jessica Miller

Last week, I was asked to stage a Waukee home that has been on the market for over a little over a month.  The home has great bones but it just needed a minor furniture and home accessory refresh to help it show better to potential buyers. Check out my before and afters.
