KINGSPORT - Teronya K. Holmes and Leslie J. McCrackin, owners of Interior Expressions, LLC, are now offering professional interior redesign services for homeowners in the greater Tri-Cities area.
As interior redesigners, Holmes and McCrackin work directly with homeowners to enhance both the look and function of interior spaces by rearranging existing furniture, artwork and accessories for maximum impact.
Holmes and McCrackin are members of Interior Redesign Industry Specialists, an organization for redesigners with members in four countries. They are also certified Dewey Color Consultants to offer clients advice on the many aspects of using color in the home with paint, fabric, and other textiles to achieve that "designer's touch."
"Redesign isn't remodeling. It's a fast, simple way to give your home or office a bold new look and enhanced functionality by using the furniture and decorative objects you already own, and that's why it has such a strong appeal," said McCrackin and Holmes.
"The important thing that people need to know is that redesign, home staging, and/or color consultations are all affordable, practical, and personal," said McCrackin. "If you want a new way to do more with what you have, it can be the simplest way to get there."
Holmes and McCrackin are also certified real estate/home stagers who will work with realtors and/or home sellers as consultants and, if needed, redesigners to help achieve curb appeal and promote the positive selling points of each home.
For a complete list of services provided, call McCrackin at (423) 367-6967 or Holmes at (423) 863-6745.
