Maine Spring has Sprung! Finding Interior Design Inspiration in Southern Maine

Brief glimpse of my inspirations lately:
 Portland Maine is on a vintage accessory binge. I love it!! Books, repurposed tables, creative lighting-yes! This is a trend I can definitely get on the bandwagon for, provided it is a recycled barnwood wagon?
I have been incorporating repurposed items in both my interior design and home staging projects.
I live off the Eastern Prom and it has been rather windy! Nature's mess is beautiful.

I have worked on two homes in the last week that have this in the window! Crazy! One was a home staging consultation, the other was an occupied staging job. Both homes were on the historic register of Portland, but very different neighborhoods! Meow!
 Hello! Maine in the spring is intoxicating
The streets are bursting with these blossoms. It like to grab coffee and take a few minutes to sit beneath these branches, even if I have to check my email at the same time.Which of course I do. I creatively recharge.

Sebago sunset. Love it. The color changes several times before the sun goes down. 

Thank you for letting you share my week with you.

Fiore Interiors: Maine Home Staging on the Radio!

Yep, taken from the studio.

This is me-Vanessa Helmick, owner of Fiore Interiors.
What on earth was I doing on the radio?
Talking about home staging and interior design. How it helps sell property and adressing common misconceptions. What home sellers need to know, and what REALTORS need to know about hiring a stager.
