As a home staging duo, we understand the importance of first impressions. It is the power of this initial judgement which dominates our decision making in our day-to-day lives, from choosing a friend, picking a car or buying a house
There is evidence to suggest that it only takes just one-tenth of a second for us to make a judgment or a first impression. Therefore, Zest Home Staging will strive to make that one-tenth of a second a positive one with a lasting impact.
Chanelle dreams of living in a world full of beautiful cushions, knitted throws, scented candles and soft romantic lighting (she strongly believes that strip lighting should be made illegal in all homes). She loves creating beautiful spaces wherever she goes, even a campervan family holiday can’t escape from her Home Staging touch.
When she’s not Staging properties, Chanelle loves to host family and friends at her own home overlooking The River Wye in Hereford. Sounds idyllic doesn’t it? With her eye for detail, love of making people feel special, and her 4 years of Hospitality and Hotel Management training in Cape Town, it’s safe to say friends and family receive a 5 star service and often don’t want to leave!
With 8 years as a Professional Photographer she also loves the opportunity to capture precious moments of family life from behind the lens, whether that be her own children or other families. Her ability to make anyone feel comfortable in front of the camera demonstrates her friendly, warm and very likeable nature. If that doesn’t paint a full enough picture, she loves chocolate (any type will do), chicken cooked in her treasured ‘Actifry’ and her trusted handheld Dyson.
Ruth can often be found with a scorching mug of tea, creating in her craft room. Ok, the word "room" may be a little generous, a cupboard is more fitting, with floor to ceiling shelves laden with chunky Milner glass jars stuffed with colourful beads, fluffy pom poms, and pastel cotton reels. Rock n Roll! Since finishing Art School 18 years ago, her passion for creating has not dulled. She loves the process of creativity from the initial spark of inspiration to the completion of a project and will try her hand at anything. Her craft cupboard also proves a wonderful spot to hide from her (ever watching) children and scoff a biscuit or two!
When Ruth is not hiding in her craft cupboard eating biscuits, she loves enjoying the spectacular scenery of The Black Mountains, which surround her home. Trekking, canoeing, jumping off waterfalls or whatever, this adrenaline junkie loves it all. With a Degree in Psychology, she understands the impact our environments have on our general wellbeing, so making time for headspace, adventure & freedom is a priority.
As a qualified Counsellor, Ruth believes in the value of supporting each other through the ups and downs of life that we all face. She loves the idea of empowering others to take the next step in their journeys, whatever that maybe. If that doesn’t paint a full enough picture, she loves chocolate (sound familiar?), a thick sole slipper to stop the pain of treading on escaped Lego pieces, oh and did we mention scorching cups of tea?!
