Hi there! Welcome to my online "curb appeal!"
I'm Denise Joy Hart, Chief Creativity Officer of "Hart of the Sell Home Staging & Redesign". I'm a tenured college professor of theatre and I have 25 years experience as an artist and redesigning homes.
I've nurtured and matured my love of staging and redesigning spaces for over 20 years, starting with my first business, "Strictly Kids Decorating". After 21 years as a tenured college professor I'm returning to my first love. I'm pretty laid back and I love to help people change their vibe about a space as they go from saying "Oh well..." to "Oh WOW!" after viewing the magic of my work in action.
My design aesthetic stems from my very own method, The Furaha Method of Joyful Design. BTW, Furaha means joyful in Swahili!
My commitment is to help homeowners create beautifully curated spaces filled with things they love. One of my gifts is using my principles for "custom on a budget" to get the look folks want but with the budget they have! Your home deserves to be a destination you don't want to leave, and when you do, you just can't wait to get back to it!
I really enjoy mixing time periods and marrying them harmoniously by using pattern, bold or subtle color and texture. Currently I'm obsessed with grass cloth wallpaper! But don't worry, my first commitment is to serve the client. So if you're not into wallpaper, no worries. I'm here to support you with making your design dreams come true.
Redesigning a small or large space for your home may be necessary for you if you have an upcoming life change and/or you're just plain tired of telling people you have an "almost" retro refrigerator. LOL!

Why is Professional Home Staging Non Negotiable?
With the growth of popularity of HGTV, home staging has become a necessity for sellers who want to get top dollar and get it fast. The longer a home sits on the market the lower the profits, and ain't nobody got time for that!
If you're new to the concept of home staging here's the deal... staging has the goal of creating a neutral but highly appealing environment that will drive buyers to want to buy your home and put in an offer, sometimes, right away. Yep, it's just that powerful.
98% of home buyers start their home search on the internet. That means first you have to get a buyers attention via their computer, laptop or smart phone. That means photos, correction, that means "camera ready" photos. You need pristine appealing looking photos of carefully arranged furniture designed to evoke specific feelings in buyers.
Don't make the mistake of trying to save a few bucks and bypass having your home professionally staged. In the long run it will cost you way more money than you seem to be saving.

“Denise Joy is a master organizer! I hired Denise to help me declutter after moving into my new home and transitioning my business to a new space. In 3 hours Denise did more than I’ve seen most people do in 9. She helped me separate what to keep, what to toss and what to donate. Honestly, I ended up releasing things I should never have moved in the first place. I had a house warming the next weekend and once Denise finished with my space I was even more proud to welcome friends and family to my new home! Hire her, she will deliver on her promise!”

“I did a home staging consultation with Denise to prepare my condo for sale. Before meeting with her I was feeling overwhelmed and I actually thought I’d never sell my place. Denise thoughtfully walked through my home pointing out things I could do immediately and those things that would take more time and a bit more money. I was so relieved after our consultation. I now have a plan to get my occupied home ready for the market and I really appreciated her knowledge of both design and what it takes to sell a home for top dollar. Denise gave me a plan, but most importantly, she gave me hope!”

Denise is truly the "Queen" of staging occupied homes! She has an extraordinary talent. Our family was very pleasantly surprised at the way she transformed our 2000 sq ft occupied home that we lived in for 13 year in just a few days.The process of selling one's home can be overwhelming. Thankfully, for us, we decided to
"Let go and let Denise!"
Her creativity and magic touch left our home sparkling and ready for the real estate market! Thank you Denise!"
