Although not a Kentucky native, I fell in love with Lexington and have called it home for decades. It is where I became a proud wife and mother of two beautiful daughters. Prior to staging, most of my career has been spent at WLEX-TV selling advertising for Lexington's local NBC-TV station. Once I retired from that role, I knew I was ready to make a change. I have always been known for my creativity so I decided to pursue staging.
I am now an Accredited Staging Professional with Staged Homes and have completed several successful projects in the area. I started Sweet T Staging to help my clients sell their homes quickly by letting prospective buyers visualize their new space.

We used Sweet T Staging to provide a fabulous lounge for our Holly Day Market. The items provided were fabulous, we received several compliments, and we were extremely pleased with the service and attention to detail. I would highly recommend them, and look forward to working with them again for the Holly Day Market 2022!"
Terri with Sweet T Staging does an amazing job listening and working with her clients. Her attention to details and thoughtfulness make decorating exciting & fun when it might normally be daunting.
She continues to work with her clients until they are simply in love with their new space.
Can’t recommend her too much!"
I loved working with Terri at Sweet T Staging. She does so much more than staging. I needed help decorating my front and back porch. She really brightened up the space and was so easy and reasonable! Thank you Terri!!!"
Terri from Sweet T Staging has done an excellent job of making an apartment a HOME. We love how she truly listens to her clients and has made the transition to community living less anxious not only for the new resident, but also for the family. We love how she has taken the apartment and made it feel even more spacious by thoughtfully including storage pieces that don't take up too much visual space. For one particular resident, she worked hard to incorporate treasures from home, but also gave the resident a 'fresh new start' by working within their budget to include some new pieces that pulled everything together. The result was a welcoming and exciting new apartment that also felt familiar because everything blended seamlessly. As an aside, I don't think you'll find a person that is more willing to go the extra mile to ensure that every detail is just right. Her kindness to older adults is admirable."

Sweet T Staging is everything you're looking for and more! Terri's designs are thoughtful and stunning. She can accommodate any taste with no detail overlooked. Terri herself is an absolute sweetheart and a pleasure to work with. Her attentiveness and care for her clients are unmatched. Highly recommend!!"
Terri did a fantastic job staging my house! She was very punctual and got the job done in just days after scheduling our consultation! The house was beautiful and ended up selling in one day!!"
From the moment I spoke with Terri about our needs, she was attentive, understanding, and sought to curate a home-like feel for my dads new apartment at Sayre Christian Village. She asked questions to inquire about his likes and preferences and took great care to find furniture and decorations that were comfortable and well-suited to his tastes but also safe as he navigates with a walker. Terri thought of everything! Right down to the the special horse mugs and bedside book about a famous horse trainer that my father has been reading before he goes to sleep each night. Terri went above and beyond to care for both my father and I as we transitioned from the skilled nursing facility to the assisted living apartment. Her compassion and attentiveness in making sure that his needs would be met in his new home has been a true gift and she created a beautiful home that made a difficult transition much easier than expected. I would recommend Terri for any decorating needs without reservation!"

Great service, sophisticated staging. Definitely helped sell my townhome!"
Terri Carpenter did a beautiful job staging the home on Pepperhill Road that my clients purchased! She was able to use a mix of some of the seller's furniture and her own to create a welcoming environment. Her visions and staging helped the buyers "place" their own furniture. My clients fell in love with the home, location, and style as soon as they walked in the door. I would highly recommend Terri with Sweet T Staging if you are in need of good inspiration!"

Mrs. Carpenter added life to the newly renovated home on Montavesta! I saw this house immediately following renovations and watched Sweet T Staging transform this lovely space into a home! Loved the life she gave the entire house."
Terri is amazing at her job. She is quick to respond, always on time, and knows just the right way to stage a home to sell! Mine sold 4 days after staging! I highly recommend her service."
Lin L.Home Owner
Terri jumped right in to help me reorganize the items in my home. We reused pieces in new ways to ground the room, and it really did change the look completely. I have received so many compliments due to her expertise. It is the first time in years that I have no urge to move around my furniture, which makes my husband very happy too!"
Terri was exactly what I was hoping for! She's professional and like hanging with a friend. Got a lot of work done the first day. I was overwhelmed with getting my house ready to put on the market, while still living there. It's hard to find people that will do what you are paying them, but she went above and beyond that! Thanks Terri!"

My journey with Terri Carpenter & Sweet T Staging began in Aug. 2020. Terri & I had been friends for many years. I had never used a stager before, but I was moving to a new place & realized I needed help making a new place my "home".
So the journey began.
Terri has the attributes that make a great stager:
~ Resourcefulness - She used what I had & she is the BEST at shopping for deals!
~ Great Sense of Style & Color - She made my new home bright, colorful, cheerful & warm.
~ Organized - She kept me on task! I couldn't wait to come home at the end of the day to see how it was all coming together.
~ Most importantly to me was Terri's kindness & interest (professionally & personally) in her customer.
She went above & beyond finding out what my style was, what I liked & didn't like. She truly wants to make her customers happy!
Terri's enthusiasm inspired me to enjoy the journey & my home is now "my happy place" thanks to Terri & Sweet T Staging!"
I was so excited when Terri Carpenter opened her staging and organization business! I have known Terri for many years and she recently came to my rescue in my home office. This was thankfully before the WFH Trend hit the world...but I had worked from home for many years. Keeping a consulting business and also working full time in collegiate education, along with keeping the business of a home all running from the same small space was overwhelming! Terri came in to organize the space and help me to be able to function so much more efficiently! She got the closet and drawers into an efficient system and once it was done, it allowed me to focus on my work and not have to look under piles to find what I needed! Can you relate?
If you feel overwhelmed by the piles and papers...helping you to organize your space so you can remove that stress and anxiety is just one of the many things Terri can do to help you. I feel that her professionalism, creativity and common sense are exactly what is needed to help everyone who is trying to create an efficient workspace at home. She helps to set up your space so your work is not out "calling to you" when you are technically not at work. I think that is one of the most important factors we can have when working from home, keeping the separation of work and home!
My office is so comfortable and productive now that often I find my husband or my daughter conducting their business from the space as well. Serving others through her organizational talents is Terri Carpenter's Gift. I highly recommend that you let her and Sweet T Staging help you by taking the organization or staging projects off of your plate that you either don't want to do, don't have the time or patience to do, or don't have the experience or know-how to tackle It will make your life less overwhelming and more efficient and it's a totally pleasant experience!"
