While still working in Film Production, Beth De Sort‘s path towards staging real estate is a natural transition for re-vitalizing real estate properties. Having worked on many locations using the existing furniture, she utilizes the pieces in a different configuration breathing new life into the environment. The end result is a re-imagining of the space, which she augments with additional pieces and design elements. Beth consults on color and will redefine the client’s palette with an enriching design aesthetic.
