I want to call your attention to the latest issue of Oregon Home. They have a very interesting article titled 21 Tips for Downsizing. They interviewed "a designer, two real estate brokers, an estate sale organizer and a downsizer for tips to ease the move from living large to living small."
Our friend RayAnn Bogert owner of 12-year-old Bizy Girl Interiors in Lake Oswego,OR. was the designer interviewed. She offered this advice:
1. Fill your new pad with furniture that's properly scaled to it. - Like a Dachshund trying to push a Great Dane-sized doggie bed into its diminutive crate, you can end up with the same old cluttered-to-the-rafters feeling if you don't consider the scale of the furniture that will decorate your new digs.Others interviewed for the article are Kent Mathews, a real estate broker at The Real Estate Firm, Karen Young Estate Sales and Appraisals in Beaverton, OR, Connie Osborne, Kim Childs, and a real estate broker with Keller Williams Realty in Lake Oswego, OR.
