Before unpacking her suitcase, she would instinctively rearrange the furnishings of her hotel room, as well as personalize the space by adding potpourri, candles and framed, family photos that she had brought from home. This was sure to have given the hotel cleaning staff something to talk about!She also applied this hands-on approach when she was confronted with messy waiting rooms in her company’s branch offices across the U.S. She unfailingly would tidy up the piles of magazines, arrange the furniture in a more balanced and appealing layout and even re-hang the artwork to accentuate the new setting! She wanted the décor to not only exude a feeling of comfort for clients, but a clear sense of professionalism as well.As a real estate agent in southern California in the 80’s, Sandy would ‘set the stage’ for every open house she held… bringing in flowers, scents, food and always making certain the lighting, furnishings, accessories, greenery and artwork were perfectly balanced and authentic for the space.Years later when researching entrepreneurial opportunities, she was drawn to both professional organizing and interior design.
