Decorator focused on the Holidays
October 27, 2018
Cheryl DeLong of DeLong Design is parlaying her expertise in decorating and staging for real estate sales into offering home holiday decorating. As autumn sets in and Halloween is approaching along with other end of year holidays, her season is just heating up.
DeLong expanded her design services, because clients and friends pointed out that upcoming social and family gatherings celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas, and ringing in the New Year are all reasons to hire an experienced decorator.
Over the last two years she has worked closely with Niwot Real Estate to show off the best features of homes on the market. In that time she has staged over 20 homes and has decorated the exterior and interior of Niwot Real Estates office at 79th Street and Niwot Road. She has also helped with decorating public spaces for The Great Pumpkin Party, Niwot’s annual Halloween event.
DeLong is now focusing on making the holidays extra-special for those who may not have the time or her knack to make their own homes inviting and festive. She curates each design to match the architecture of the house so the enhancements will feel like a natural extension to the setting.
Prior to home staging, DeLong managed and decorated The Niwot Inn for seven years.
“It was a tremendous amount of work, but the [Inn’s] owner always let me loose and everyone loved the results,” DeLong said.
In addition to holiday decorating, she enjoys helping homeowners freshen up, simplify, and aesthetically organize their everyday living spaces. DeLong repurposes existing furnishings and shops on behalf of or with clients to beautify each space. Often times, she said, it’s just a matter of adding a new rug or pillows, rearranging, decluttering a bit, or throwing in a pop of color to make spaces feel new.
DeLong said, “It’s just the little things that make the change go a long way.”
The cost for decorating services is per project. DeLong can be reached at 303-917-2126.
