Design2Sell Welcome’s New Intern

Photo Apr 30, 3 47 45 PM

Design2Sell has offered Marketing and Interior Design intern positions over the years to both foreign and domestic candidates. It has been a rewarding experience for both Design2Sell and the students. We have been fortunate enough to have students come from as far away as Germany, France and Sweden.

Design2Sell has recently added a new Interior Design intern from our very own state, Georgia. We are so pleased to welcome Latisha Greenidge to our team.

"Greetings! My name is Tisha Greenidge and I am currently a Bachelors of Fine Arts Interior Design major. So far I am loving interning  at Design2sell because of the awesome hands on experience and the fun projects! The team here has been very welcoming and patient with me. They continue to teach me the reality of working with clients within a timely manner and keeping my design concepts at a consistent flow. Here at Design2sell my teamwork skills have advanced because they allow me to express my opinion on changes that can be made within the company and at our project sites. Working and being a part of the the Design2sell team is a great opportunity for me and encourages me to be a great Designer! "

We look forward to the next couple of months with Tisha. Keep an eye out for blog posts on her progress and insight on her time with us.

Design2Sell Gives Back

positive change

Design2Sell's home staging team is so excited to be able to contribute to two great events this May. With Spring being a very busy time for buying and selling, we have been very fortunate with the opportunity to help homeowners and sellers stage their properties. We are looking forward to setting aside some time to help out in the community and enjoy the sun.

Wilson Parker Homes is participating in Walk for Wishes for the Georgia's Make-A-Wish Foundation. Walk for Wishes is a fundraiser event used to help grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. We are so pleased to be able to donate to this event as all the proceeds go directly to granting wishes for the children. The event will take place this Saturday, May 2, 2015 at 9 am sharp at Philips Arena.

If you would like to join or donate to this great cause please follow the link for more info: WP Walk for Wishes info

We will also be participating in this years Keller Williams Red Day Event. RED standing for Renew, Energize and Donate, it is Keller Williams Realty's annual day of service. Each year on the second Thursday of May, Realtors, associates and friends spend the day away from their businesses serving worthy organizations and causes in their communities.

We will be heading back to the same location as last year, the Museum School, where we will assist in enhancing the outdoor classrooms and facilities for the kids. We will also help construct the Frank Carollo Memorial Peace Garden & Natural Trail that will be dedicated in his honor. Frank was an awesome realtor who we had the pleasure of staging homes for.

Mid-century Modern Design Series: Bar Carts

Design2Sell’s Mid-Century Modern series continues with a staple item of this trend- Bar Carts. Bar carts keep bar ware and alcohol on hand for easy access while entertaining, and are often used for an extra storage spot for accessories. These carts were highly popular during the height of the mid-century era. Today bar carts recall the clean-lined aesthetic of the 1950s and '60s and add an extra flare to a room. They radiate elegance and chicness and have become quite popular again.

 Below are a few bar carts Design2Sell is inspired by. Tell us what you think!

Do you think they would make a great addition?
