Meridith Baer Quoted for International Women’s Day

Meridith Baer was quoted in Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation’s post celebrating International Women’s Day: Words to inspire you from L.A.’s top female executives!

I started my business by accident! I needed a place to store my 250 huge potted plants and furniture… so I suggested to a friend who was selling an empty home that he let me “decorate” the home with my things to show how to live in the space. The house sold in a few days for a half million over asking. It was a blessing. I had been a screenwriter for 18 years and I was tired of sitting alone in front of my computer all day.

Meridith Baer Opens Her Home to Los Angeles Times

Meridith Baer recently opened her home to Los Angeles Times, and the story is featured in this week’s Hot Property/Real Estate section!

The intimate profile is called Designer Meridith Baer’s Home Staging Empire Began with a Plant Storage Dilemma.

Opening with a slideshow of photos of Meridith and her house in Brentwood, CA, the article recounts her journey from childhood at San Quentin State Prison, daughter of the associate warden, to her current standing as what the paper calls “…a sort of fairy godmother of home staging.”

Halfway down the page is a sit-down living room video interview Meridith gave LA Times writer Arielle Paul.

Our thanks to everyone at Los Angeles Times for this truly lovely spotlight!

Meridith Baer Home Staged the Grammys

Meridith Baer Home staged the artist dressing rooms for music’s biggest night: the Grammy Awards!

In the video above, MBH designer Carolyn Greco gives Grammys correspondent Kéla Walker a tour of the backstage areas we furnished—each room an elegant, inspiring space for artists performing that evening to rehearse and relax.

It was our honor and pleasure to stage dressing rooms for these dignitaries and musicians:

Michelle Obama

For the former First Lady, we wanted to evoke the elegance of a luxury hotel, but with the warmth of a home. As a gift to her, we custom made a pillow with a hand-painted quote from Harriet Tubman, honoring both Black History month and Mrs. Obama personally.

Meridith Baer Quoted at MyDomaine

Meridith Baer is quoted in the MyDomaine post 11 Simple Rules That Make a Small Bedroom Feel Like a Master!

Home staging expert Meridith Baer suggests “a large mirror mounted on the wall adds architectural interest while also adding light to the space—it works especially well if it reflects a window or large opening into the room to give the illusion of more space.”

Taking it to the next level Meredith goes for lucite and glass when choosing bedside furniture. “It’s a crisp modern look that doesn’t visually weigh down the space—by adding the right airy accessories on top you can add height to the space along with dramatic impact.”

Brick Underground

Meridith Baer Quoted at NYC’s Brick Underground

Meridith Baer is quoted in the Brick Underground post How to Make the Tiny Bath in your NYC Rental Apartment More Functional.

In the feature, Meridith offers this suggestion about countertops:

Use a neutral-colored decorative tray on top of bathroom counters to cover up unsightly tile… Top it with fluffy towels, a pretty candle, or a bouquet of fresh flowers.

She also weighs in on walls:

A fresh coat of paint is the easiest and most inexpensive way to transform a space, and lighter shades can help a tight bathroom space feel much larger.
