Hi, I’m Marie Graham, owner of The Refreshed Home. Thanks for considering TRH for your Westchester County design and home staging needs!

Projects are about you, the work, and the results. BUT you want a good fit, so here’s the short version of what I bring to the party:

  • Expertise (experience, range, wisdom), perspective, information, efficiency.
  • Peace of mind, humor, and kindness.
  • Happy Clients! Readers voted The Refreshed Home Westchester’s Best Home Stager in 2019, and in 2020!
  • Results! Sales volume of my staged properties crossed the half-billion dollar mark in 2019, read what happy clients have to say.

Longer version…

>Bettering spaces has been my entire career.  Launched TRH in 2007 after many years in interior design, and home furnishings store management

>Philosophy  Life is too short to be in spaces that don’t work, or be beholden to stuff you don’t like. Bettered spaces elevate people, and their lives. TRH brings a thoughtful approach to the creative process.

>Business Model The Refreshed Home is a design consultancy representing your best interests. Revenue is derived from value of counsel, not sale of product.

>Education is a constant. Interior Design and business got me started; life, and generous amounts of trade CE since. I lead Decorating and Home Staging workshops, teach at  Bronxville Adult School, Triple Play speaker, and developing CE class on staging for agents.

>Accreditation matters!
