HOME STAGING PHOTO GALLERY
in-town family pool home | contract in 5 days
In our most recent occupied home staging project, we developed a solution for a home that had already been on the market for over 2 months without much interest. This 4BR/4 BA home had already been de-cluttered, was clean, and in good repair. After reviewing online photos and an in-person consultation, we determined what this home needed.
Our goal was to upgrade the first impression of buyers upon entering the main living and dining rooms by providing a more cohesive, updated, and contemporary home. We complemented the existing color palette with compatible and trending colors and carried the scheme throughout the home for continuity. We also wanted to draw attention to the homes many features such as multiple living spaces, two master suites, generous storage throughout, fireplace, and multiple outdoor areas.
The space needed a better furniture arrangement, the addition of color and lightness, more modern finishes, and balance between the older and newer spaces to give an overall better presentation. With just a little extra polish we were able to give a better impression to buyers and accentuate a well-cared for home - not to mention an accepted offer within 5 days of staging completion!
LIVING ROOM | OUR PROCESS 1) rearrange furniture and bring in new pieces from another room to accentuate the fireplace and the grandness of the entire space 2) lighten and update window treatments 3) add in more modern decor 4) remove the extras
DINING ROOM | OUR PROCESS 1) some trim was wood stained and some painted white which made the black built-in unit (left of photo) stand out - we had the homeowner paint the built-in cabinet and shelves with the same white trim color to create cohesion 2) edit wall decor and swap for brighter artwork from living room 3) modern styling of tabletop decor and chair placement
MASTER BEDROOM | OUR PROCESS 1) most all of the furniture stayed, we did however orient this oversized master toward the window to create a focal point and more space on the left side of the room with the three closets 2) for better scale we went larger, we added a new fluffy comforter (yes, it’s still a queen bed) that worked well with the lavender-gray walls and then the marble-topped side tables were brought in from 2 different rooms 3) we lightened up the drapes and overall decor with fun modern pieces

GUEST BEDROOM | OUR PROCESS 1) after boxes were stored away we removed remaining items and created an upstairs bedroom 2) we added in extra bookcases from downstairs and a dresser that was crowding the master bedroom to turn this into the perfect guest room 3) all decor, bedding, and lamps were homeowners from other rooms
LIVING/DINING ROOM | OUR PROCESS 1) edited down the number of bookcases and simply displayed some books and treasures - removing all books from top shelf 2) large cabinets between the spaces were used in master bedroom as night stands 3) calmed the space by adding white drapes from another room and changing to a more open furniture arrangement
PRIVATE LIVING ROOM | OUR PROCESS 1) added simple bold statements like the red chair and artwork 2) made use of nook by adding a leaning desk 3) this room was actually the first floor master so we kept it open in the center to show off the size of the room

rural ranch curb appeal | under contract 4 days

brick 2-story | contract in 5 days
An unused sitting area off the main entry seemed like wasted space in this lingering listing. The adjoining living room in this 3,000 sq. ft. home had vaulted ceilings yet the awkward layout of small living room gave just enough room for a small sofa and a couple of chairs. The fireplace looked dated as well.
Oddly placed rugs on top of the wall-to-wall carpeting covered outlets in the floor. Many other homes selling in the area had hardwood floors. I advised the homeowner to add hardwood to make their home stand out, as well as help unify the space and multiple floors seen from the living area. Two chairs originally positioned between the rooms with their backs to the front door stopped flow and created a smaller looking living room.
After multiple attempts over several years, the owners received and accepted a contract in 5 days after our staging service.
SITTING ROOM + LIVING ROOM | OUR PROCESS 1) we united 2 smaller spaces into one large living room with hardwood floors 2) bright greenery and better scaled mantle decor lift the fireplace 3) added in glass tables borrowed from a family member to add function and lightness to the space 4) removed the surrounding entertainment center and left only the TV and base unit
ENTRY/SITTING AREA | OUR PROCESS 1) the addition of hardwood flooring and rearranging of current furniture helped to incorporate this room into the home instead of it feeling out of place 2) we converted the “convertible” bookshelves into an entry table 3) added in 2 coordinating chairs from another room along with new artwork
