“I heard how Jon got started in the home staging business with Jan Sewell, some 20 years ago. Jan was the first person to do retail staging in the Seattle area. They would empty her house and fill it up again to practice. Jon explained, “there is great design everywhere you look—it wasn’t hard to find great elements to use.” They shopped at Goowill, but also raided TJ Maxx and Target. “They knock off from the best people.”
“We talked about Jon’s preferences when dealing in vintage home decor elements. “I love being able to find humble items and elevating them. There is a certain beauty in simple things. I love patina and I love wear and tear.” Well, Jon, let me tell you—you’d LOVE my house. It’s a shrine to wear and tear after my three boys and their friends have occupied it for nearly three decades.”
