Our next customer appreciation event should be fun!

Our next customer appreciation event should be fun!  We are going to hear some great ideas on repurposing and reusing armoires and entertainment centers.  Who doesn’t have at least one of these in their home (or garage)?  GraceAnn Simoni is a great local resource for our customers.  We’ve included her bio and some links to additional articles that she has written.

Interior Redesign Industry Specialist

ga2Yours Redesigned is owned and operated by GraceAnn Simoni, Naperville, IL. Certified stager/redesigner since 2001, she is also a REAS-Pro member of the Real Estate Staging Association.  Member in good standing of the National Association of Professional Organizers, NAPO, Association of Design Education (ADE), and is a founding member and serves on the Board of the Midwest Redesign Staging Association (MRSA).


GraceAnn has served on the Board of Directors for two other industry-related organizations. and now volunteers throughout the industry to foster the continued growth.


As a testament to her personal and professional skills, GraceAnn has great respect for people’s homes and the things they value as well as a trained eye on current trends in decorating.


The goal of Yours Redesigned is to help Homeowners open their minds to possibilities present in their own homes. In the Redesign profession, the emphasis is on using existing furniture and accessories.

In the Staging side of her business it is all about ‘Marketing’ a property to get it sold…fast!


GraceAnn listens to the homeowners needs to determine what is truly important to them and their homes, and then works with that in mind.

Too many people think they can’t afford that ‘decorator touch’ because of the expense of replacing everything. GraceAnn’s favorite quote reflects her philosophy:


“An interior should be a reflection of the people who live in it. It should never be only the stamp of a decorator.” Oscar De la Renta

‘One Day Room Makeovers’ and ‘Redesign to Sell’ concepts have been featured on OPRAH, HGTV and in many decorating magazines. HGTV’s long running, Decorating Cents, with Joan Steffend, featured redesign segments by professionals in the industry.

A day in the life of “Restyle” is the most fun because you never know what to expect.

Expect the Unexpected.   A day in the life of “Restyle” is the most fun because you never know what to expect.  We never know what or who will come through our door.

couchI’ve always said that this may be called a “furniture business” BUT it is really a “people business”.  It is based on real people’s lives, their transitions, job loss and gain, death and divorce, the economy,  and evaluating wants versus needs.  Every once in a while, we are treated to a special kind of person who does something for somebody else; even anonymously.  When you see a “pay-it-forward” kind of act, it is humbling.  When you think of your crummy life or your woes and difficulties, you are reminded that the world is good and right and there is balance and karma that works, you see this simple act of pure goodness and you get goosebumps.
