    So many great ideas, I hope we can see the finished space.

  3. pat boatman on April 7, 2023 at 10:53 am

    I loved your ideas, it made the room soft and welcoming. I showed this video to one of the seniors and she said that she was going to implement some of your suggestions. So you’ve helped several people already. TFS

    The arrangements were spot on but the blue pillows marble rug and ottoman were a no!

  5. MyTidyGal on April 7, 2023 at 10:54 am

    Always on point Cathryn! Thanks for helping us think through options- great ideas.

    Seems like a waste to throw perfectly good decor in the trash, she could always donate it, there’s someone for everything, even outdated decor, just a thought, other then that nice video

  7. julie the thrifty designer on April 7, 2023 at 10:56 am

    I really liked seeing this type of video I thought it was amazing. But I hope she really didn’t throw her unwanted things in the trash. I hope she at least donated them to a cause or thrift store. I also don’t think you should use the fluffy rug that has to be turned over to vacuum, as a senior that would be a bad thing to do. I loved ideas it was a great video.💖

  13. Tonya James on April 7, 2023 at 11:04 am

    Love everything except for the black rug by the door underneath the table it’s too long what about the rug with the table only & a different rug altogether by the door another pop of color. She has nice taste cute place

  14. Vonnie Channel on April 7, 2023 at 11:04 am

  17. Jenny Borter on April 7, 2023 at 11:05 am

    I loved this. Thanks for sharing. It is so helpful and I don’t mind not seeing the finished space.

  18. AFREEME on April 7, 2023 at 11:07 am

    You did a GREAT JOB! TFS

  19. Sherry Mcghee on April 7, 2023 at 11:08 am

    You said vacuum the underside of the high pile rug ??? Why ??

  20. Scared of Mice on April 7, 2023 at 11:09 am

    Please do more

  21. Althea McNabb on April 7, 2023 at 11:12 am

    I liked it. You went with a more round, softer look. Didnt like a thick pile rug were she would have to flip it over to vacuum. I would not want to do that being young, more less older. No marble either, draws your eyes to it to much. Loved everything else though.

  22. Satisfying Whiteboard drawing on April 7, 2023 at 11:13 am

    Beautiful. What app are you using?

  23. Diva9000x on April 7, 2023 at 11:13 am

    Love your ideas. The sofa switch was the best. The dining table turn was good too, but what do you think about removing the leaf from the table? That would give more space and the leaf could be inserted as needed, which I’m sure is not everyday. Your vision for the space is excellent!

  24. RealinNYC on April 7, 2023 at 11:14 am

    This is the first evaluation that I have seen. I like it. I didn’t understand turning the rug over to vacuum. Do you vacuum only the back side or both sides? Please explain further. Thank you.

    I am loving that you guys are diving into this video. During these evaluations allows the client to achieve her goals. I like to move things around so my client can quickly see a new space and leave them with actual examples to use as a guide. I do not remove their art or wall decor until they have new items. If they want to see a pop of color I usually add their favorite color. That way they can go bolder or tone it down. Keep chatting guys. 😍

  26. M K on April 7, 2023 at 11:15 am

    What a gift you have! Would love a follow-up video.
    She has a good eye for design, too!

  27. Carol Valmore on April 7, 2023 at 11:16 am

    That is a great video!! I also live in a sr. apartment and enjoyed the ideas. Please do more!!

  28. Tonya James on April 7, 2023 at 11:17 am

    Can you do more of these type video’s and what is that app you used to show the difference?

    This is brilliant. More of these.

  43. Lisa Pointer on April 7, 2023 at 11:45 am

    Love all your ideas and turning the sofa wow what a difference. One thing I would like to share is when my own mother moved into a senior apartment, for the same reason as for the fire extinquisher, we were advised AGAINST any rugs, of any size/type, purely as they are a "Trip Risk" & therefore a Health & Safety issue, ie trip and hit their head on furniture edges or trip, fall and break hip etc. What we were advised to do was paint a square to "zone" an area either just an outline or to paint a whole square/rectangle. Hope you don’t mind me mentioning this, no offence was intended & as I said we were considering rugs for mums apartment until it was pointed out to us and as you have been kind enough to share this fantastic video I just wanted to share this little bit of info with you. ATB

  44. Blondie Warrior on April 7, 2023 at 11:46 am

    Perfect changes. We are conected. Many Blessings.

  45. Sherry Mcghee on April 7, 2023 at 11:48 am

    Btw, i liked the evaluation, more of these would be great !

  46. nozztozz on April 7, 2023 at 11:49 am

    This was great! Please do more of these. Can you possibly do a video about how to make a vision board like you did here?
