So…here I am, tapping away at what will soon be my first DecoREISta™ blog post. I’m filled with excitement at launching this website (it’s been 7 months in the making). I feel like this first post is important…because it will set the tone for the blog…not just for the decoristas, homeowners, homebuyers and real estate agents I hope to appeal to…but also for the fabulous guest bloggers/writers and brands I look forward to featuring.
I guess first things first; a proper introduction is in order. I’m Lisa Reis (pronounced ‘Reese’…not ‘Ry-ez’, ‘Re-as’ or ‘Rice’).
I am the owner and founder of DecoREISta™ Inc. By now you’ve probably noticed the deliberate misspelling of my company name. Seeing that the term Decorista is becoming as common as saying ‘fashionista’, I thought I’d put my own spin on the term and seeing that my last name phonetically fits perfectly…ta-dah…a blog was born and a home staging/interior decorating company to boot. I’ve been nick-named Decorista for a while now. My company name DecoREISta™ serves as double-whammy, it educates decorista visitors how to pronounce my last name (always a first-topic of conversation) and it hints at what this blog is all about. It’s dedicated to all things decorating and with my service offerings, that includes home staging.
I recently googled the term fashionista and found the following definition:
Noun: 1. A designer of haute couture.
2. A devoted follower of fashion: “sleek designs that press all the fashionistas’ buttons”.
So…similarly speaking, I suppose a decorista can be defined as:
Noun: 1. A decorator of fine dwellings.
2. A devoted follower of décor: ”sleek room vignettes and designs that press all the decoristas’ buttons”.
Verb: Creatively serving the home staging and interior decorating communities and showing home owners, home buyers and realtors how to Live with Style!
What can you expect to see on this blog?
I can’t wait to share my decorating tips and tricks, news and shopping resources with you.
I’ll be posting images to inspire the decorista or decoristo in you…and naturally, I’ll be showcasing some of my home staging and interior decorating projects along the way.I primarily work in Toronto and the GTA (Greater Toronto Area, which includes: Vaughan, Woodbridge, Maple, Thornhill, Concord, Richmond Hill, Barrie, King City, Kleinburg, Oakville, Brampton, Aurora, Newmarket and Markham)…and hey…I’m even available on Skype if you’d like an online consult!
I’m also extremely excited to be producing my own web-series “The House of DecoREISta.tv” where I’ll be featuring some of my projects, favourite design and décor stores, architecture, design show events, entertaining ideas, recipes and much more! The web series is currently in production!
