Home Staging and Redesign by Erik Forster. Inspired by Nature & Contemporary Sustainable Living. I strive to create visually appealing and uplifting home environments that garner attention. Being a REALTOR®, I properly evaluate real estate, and as a designer, I stage and redesign homes to showcase the benefits and soften the challenges. My goals are to visually attract attention to your real estate in order for you to receive top dollar; or to redesign your home to best meet your needs and style. I provide Vastu design insights for those looking for a deeper connection to place. Vastu, or Indian Feng Shui, is like Yoga for your home. I design attractive copper wall art that captures mood and movement in time. Copper is a basic element that is traditionally associated with beauty. I hammer and tool copper sheets through an old-world process called copper repousse. I finish the copper with patinas and acrylic stains. Originally, my parents trained me in bronze casting. I transitioned to copper as a more accessible metal medium. Regarding both interior design and copper art, environmentally sustainable methods and materials are important to me. I try to use natural and non-toxic materials as much as possible. My design aesthetic has a clear connection to the natural world while retaining contemporary relevance.

Erik is a professional! His attention to detail is clear when looking at the results. I appreciate how Erik can explain his choices - and why the design works- Through his design he can communicate the feel that you want to project in your home

I referred Erik to my client. Erik did an amazing job staging my client's house. The house looks wonderful! Not only was I impressed and completely satisfied with the result but my client absolutely love it.

I would never have been able to do what I did without Eriks amazing eye for design. I had a very short window to get this done as well. Living in the city and to be able to trust someone in your home who knows how important attention to detail is, was a gift in itself and then the amazing outcome of how gorgeous your home looks afterward is is the icing on the cake!

Erik just completed staging a home of mine in Ulster County. The house looks magnificent !, I had some basic pieces in the house which Erik rearranged and transformed with accessories. He brought in quite a number of additional pieces which both blended and contrasted perfectly with what was already there. The house looks so wonderful I don't even want to sell it. Erik did everything including picking out and in some cases obtaining window treatments, picking out paint colors for a couple rooms that needed changing (the colors are fabulous and several friends have since bought them for their own homes), suggesting minor repairs and architectural touches and introducing me to people to do them and all at a competive price. Erik is easy to work with and responsive and totally "gets" my aesthetic and what would enhance this home. I highly recommend Erik for any staging/design needs
