"First and foremost, I absolutely love what I do. Secondly, I'm a native Texan, or should that be first? I left Texas for a while, but I came back as soon as I could".
Cindy Bryant is the owner of Redesign Etc, Inc., a full service Home Staging and Interior Redesign firm serving the Houston and Galveston area of Texas. Holding a degree in Psychology and Marketing, and having extensive knowlege in the Houston Real Estate Market, her experience has spanned from working for international corporations in marketing, sales, promotions, visual display and merchandising to professional sports marketing and celebrity autograph signings and appearances.
The sports marketing company provided sports memorabilia for all the major tv home shopping channels, as well as several major sales catalogs. She's had the opportunity to meet and work with some of the most famous athletes in the world, traveling city to city with them.
After being on the road for over 300+ days a year, and flying over 2 million miles, she was able to stay at some of the finest luxury hotels and see some of the most beautiful celebrity homes in the country. These five star resorts were home away form home for many celebrities during their playing season.
What does this have to do with staging you may ask?
Accumulating life experiences and a wealth of decorating ideas to draw upon, that can never be taken away...priceless!
She's also had the opportunity to travel to different parts of the world, which has afforded her the ability to visually see, hear and feel the pulse of the culturally diverse areas in the world.
With all this said, included in her many years of real estate investing, there are so many elements, that she has been able to incorporate into home staging from her experiences in travel.
She states that from castles to cathedrals, each area has had a distinct decorating style of it's own. I love the European architecture, the rugged coastlines with stucco homes dangling on sides of cliffs, to Tuscan villas perched atop a hill in the middle of a vineyard.
All of this combined with the love of enhancing homes, has been a wonderful palette from me to work from. The transformation of rooms, after home staging is what its all about. To turn a room that was blah, into "wow" is not only amazing to do, but a task I love to tackle. I'm very passionate about what I do and want my work to reflect that.
"Home Staging is still in it's infancy in this area, and I am committed to educating consumers and real estate agents about everything home staging has to offer"
