Krista Bocko, owner
About me: I'm originally from VT but grew up in the midwest. I used to rearrange my room as a kid while my mom thought I was sleeping. Apparently, this is NOT normal. Ha. So I've always had this need to change things up and experiment in rooms/houses. That does not apply to fashion, however. While I want to experiment in my home and find my own style, I just want someone to tell me what to wear! Actually, I want to keep it simple. Give me skinny jeans, a black top/sweater, and a pair of comfortable shoes or booties, and I'm set.
My background is in design (I have a degree in Interior Design) and I have also explored a stint in real estate. Yes, I was a Realtor once upon a time. But I quickly realized that what I REALLY wanted to do was make changes in the houses, instead. It has taken me lots of experimentation (and I still experiment, of course!) to find a cohesive style in my own home. And now, I love to be able to focus most of my time & energy on staging/design.
I've made my share of decorating, color, and many, many other mistakes. And I have and am always learning 'what not to do.' Finding 'my people,' those people that I love to work with and collaborate with are what makes me keep going. I have some decorating pet peeves: rugs and furniture placed on an angle (I may very, very rarely make an exception if I see no other alternative), same goes for pillows (though I would never do that - put them on an angle - period). Artwork hung too high and/or not to scale...and I have more. Many of these are things I've done, look back on, and cringe!
But even moreso, I see so many things I LOVE. So many ideas and possibilities just waiting to be executed. And that's what I'm about - helping clients find the potential in their homes
I love thrift store shopping & finding those perfect treasures, I color my hair with henna, and I renovate my 19th century house when I have the time and funds. It is a money pit!
I moved to Hamilton county when I got married in 2005. I currently live in Noblesville and have 2 elementary kids this year in school.
I have a background in education but decided to pursue my background in one on one tutoring for the past 10 years. I also have a gift and love for cleaning and organizing. I look for detail and see how it can be used the best possible way.
I love to meet new people and this business has allowed me to grow and learn. It's hard to ask for help but our company is the best to talk to and how we can reduce the stress and worry of selling or moving in. We are a team and work well together with our clients to create a space for you. Staging, organizing and cleaning is our game!
I love all things design - decor, furniture, DIY projects, painting, repurposing, crafting, etc. I enjoy the creative and transformative process of updating, organizing and refining a space. As a designer and organizer, I strive to create, transform and improve each space to enhance the aesthetics, mood, function and order our clients are looking for.
