"What to do with What You Have" This popular show is chock full of tips on how to take items you probably already have on hand and turn them into a Designer Accessory!


"How to Stage Your Home for Sale" – If you are considering putting your home on the market you'll find out how to maximize your chances of gaining a rapid and full price sale by using Marsha's advice in these notes.
"Colors for the New Millennium". Marsha does four completely different shows dealing with color each year. On this particular show, she addresses how the New Millennium will bring changes to how people use color and design in their lives. Colorful Concepts – In this show, Marsha talks about the basic properties of over 20 different colors, as well as the tones or hues of that color which you can expect to see during the next decade or so.
Home Offices – As recently as ten years ago, an average of fifty percent of the homes Marsa did contained a home office. Currently, the average is more like 98%, with almost a third of her projects containing not one but two offices! Whether you are getting ready to set up an office or just want some tips on make your office better, you will find what you need in these notes.

Kitchens - Kitchens have changed a great deal over the past few decades. Consumers have more products and appliances available to them, which have changed the way they use their kitchens. Marsha says she prefers to establish several separate task areas, rather than one work triangle. You will find these notes helpful even if you just want some ideas for a window treatment.

The Many Moods of Color – Do you want your home to be more nurturing, romantic or playful? Did you know that some colors make you feel healthier? This is an expansion of the text Marsha wrote several years ago for the book "An Interior Designers’ Showcase of Color". In this material she explains how to create five different moods through the use of color. Master Suites – Is your bedroom the romantic haven you would like for it to be? If not, you will find much information in this segment to assist you in creating the room you’ve been dreaming of. From colors, to placement of furniture or even how to accessorize – it’s all here.
