Three ways to create your own beautiful, functional home

Welcome to my website! I’m Sherry Hockman, an interior decorator dedicated to helping you create a beautiful, functional home that reflects your style and taste — and fits the way you and your family really live, whether that includes kids, pets or just you.

Learn more about me and my work at my Facebook page, where I often announce flash sales and the arrival of new items at my store, Hockman Home Decor and Design. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday in Parkade Center, Suite 240, near the south entrance, 601 Business Loop 70, Columbia, Missouri.

You can get interior design help three ways:

In-home appointments: I can come to your home and help you create the kind of space you’ve always wanted to live in, either with what you already have or I can help you find the right furnishings for you and your family.

In-store offerings: In 2013, I opened Hockman Home Decor and Design designed to offer furnishings and in-store design advice. Open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, the store is in the Parkade Center, Suite 240, at 601 Business Loop 70, Columbia, Missouri. Items on the floor include furniture, accessories, lighting, rugs, mirrors, art and pillows.

Staging: A staged home sells faster, letting you pay attention to your new home instead of worrying about an empty house.

Three frugal ways to brighten your outdoor space

Creating a functional and picture-perfect place to relax outside is easy.

Accessories – Right now you can find real deals on outdoor pillows and other outdoor durable items. These items, especially pillows, give your outdoor space some softness and to add color. Pillows are an easy way to give your outdoor space a new look at a low cost.

Rug – You anchor your furniture inside with rugs, do the same outside. Again, it also softens the space and makes it feel like a living room outside.

Plants — Add some greenery and get a summery, even tropic feel outside by adding some large plants. Brighten up even more by putting the plants in your own pots — or give your old pots a new look with a can of spray paint.

Outdoors as well as indoors, pillows and accessories brighten up a space.

Room of Hope Upcoming Reveal

In a few days, the Room of Hope, created by Sherry Hockman of Hockman Interior Design, will be unveiled in the February/March issue of Columbia Home magazine.

The Room of Hope is project where Sherry transforms the home of a Columbia resident who is facing a serious illness. The project is in cooperation with University Hospitals and Columbia Home magazine. Jaclyn Summitt, a cardiovascular patient at the University of Missouri Health Care, was chosen as the recipient for the February/March 2014 Room of Hope.

By completely redecorating the home, Sherry works to create a beautiful, functional home where Jaclyn can concentrate on getting better while she and her children enjoy a comfortable and comforting home. To help create the new look for this home, Sherry called on four volunteers to help her scour Columbia for the right items. The volunteers were Leslie Davis, Barbara Stratton, Dietlinde Stitzer and Eva Hockman.

See the before and after transformation created by Sherry Hockman in the February/March issue of Columbia Home magazine.
