Pam is a seasoned designer and an award-winning home stager based in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire. Over the course of her 13-year career, Pam has helped hundreds of homeowners successfully style and stage their homes. In 2019, Pam was named among the nations' Top 10 Occupied Home Stagers, in 2020 she was included on the Real Estate Staging Association’s list of Top 100 Most Influential People in Real Estate.
Pam's staging services were a natural springboard into the field of design, as her clients would request that she come to their next home in order to re-create that "spruced" effect in their new spaces. The design side of Spruce has grown over the years - Pam now enjoys a variety of projects ranging from commercial office redesigns to multi-million dollar residential renovations. But if you ask her, she'd say the balance of her days is spent doing what she loves most - helping her clients simply love the room they're with. Hiring a designer isn't for just the fancy folk: Pam's services are meant to simply help homeowners make sense of the vast array of options that exist and select the ones that are just right for their vision and their budget.
Of course, nothing is ever just right without the perfect paint color. In 2015, after years of being asked "What color should it be?," Pam took her training to the next level and became the seacoast's first Certified True Color Expert. Fully trained in the art of identifying color undertones, Pam is a highly experienced color consultant and has helped hundreds of rooms feel right again - just by nailing the correct color.
Pam is a founding member and current treasurer of New Hampshire's Greater Concord Chapter of RESA (Real Estate Staging Association). A RESA-Approved Instructor, Pam regularly teaches Realtors throughout the region on the value of home staging. Pam's work has been featured in NH Magazine, The Portsmouth Herald and Coastal Design Magazine. You can find her most recent design project here: www.coastaldesignmag.com/home-design/building-a-green-home/
When she is not driving around the seacoast eating lunch in her car between appointments - the glamorous life! - she can be found in her Hampton studio organizing her growing staging inventory or building her sample studio for the design side of her business.
If it isn't already evident, Pam is thrilled to be involved in a creative career helping people love the room they're with. If you ask her, she'll tell you it is far more satisfying than her former career as a junior high Spanish teacher, where she never actually spotted a 13-year-old enjoying verb conjugations. Today, her happiest moments are when clients let her know they've never felt better in their home. That wins, every time.
Why "Spruce" for a company name? Because in one word, it sums up what I love to do. Spruce. Make things prettier, neater, cozier. Those are my happiest hours - the ones when my hands are busy creating a mantel display, a bookshelf arrangement, an art installation, a tabletop vignette. Growing up, we used this word all the time around our house. We all spruced. My mother, my grandmother, my sister, my aunts - decorators, each one. Lovers of color, fabrics, art, found objects, pottery, wallpaper, sparkly things. So it's no wonder. It's all in the family.
