Home Staging Purpose or Imagination

Purpose or imagination

We often come across ambiguous spaces, or rooms that are difficult to read. In some cases we find it necessary/beneficial to give purpose, or show use of a space. Showing buyers how a home functions can engage them with the home. Conversely, sometimes it is best to leave the use of a space up to the imagination of the buyer. If a room is given a specific use, buyers may not be able to see it

How We Do Professional Home Staging

How do we do it?!

It’s always interesting to set a job while the homeowner is present. We often here the comment “I’ve lived here for “X” years, and in 2 hours, you’ve made it look better than I ever did” In just 2 hours we can transform an entire house!   2 hours….. Or so….   there is the consultation at the home. This is where we spend time getting a feel for the space, and formulating our plan.

Home Staging

It’s not you, it’s me…

For many homeowners, selling their home is akin to breaking up. They fell in love with it, they invested emotionally in it, they still love it. But now it’s time to move on. Our goal with staging is to show the property as the best version of itself that it can possibly be. This often requires removal and or replacement of existing décor to create a broader market share appeal. This de-personalization is the perfect

Seasonal lighting

With the long days of summer upon us, we take into account the extended light hours by using fewer lamps in our sets. While lamps are great décor pieces, in the summer months cool and breezy is the design tool of choice to encourage the emotional connection. Using lighter weight décor that have less height on end tables can give a room a more open, and cooler feel.

Home Staging Style Wars

Style wars!

One of the biggest challenges that we face is when there are competing styles within a home. While personalization is great when decorating your home for yourself, it can become a hindrance to selling. This is especially true when it comes to “themed” rooms. Many buyers find that neutralizing the home prior to selling is helpful for them to separate themselves emotionally from the home. A home with a consistent style and color palette throughout

Home Staging What's In An Odor

What’s in an odor?

Odors are an easy way to ensure that your home sits on the market with out any offers. Be it food, pet, moisture, or perfume, an oder-ific home is a big turn off to home buyers. Trying to mask odors, or simply adding scent to a home is not something that we advise. If there is an odor issue, it’s best to address the cause of the odor. Perfumes and scents may cover the underlying smell,

Home Staging Tips For When Logical Function is Sacrificed
Home Staging

When logical function is sacrificed

The three aspects in order of importance that we address with staging are: How the room will photograph. How the room feels in person. How the logical function of the room is demonstrated. While it can be ok to sacrifice the logical function a little, our goal is to always show a room that not only looks beautiful, but that a homebuyer can see themselves living in and with.

Home Staging Tips - the eye has to travel

The eye has to travel

One of the keys to a successful look is to create a “decor landscape”. To quote legendary stylist and fashion maven Diana Vreeland “the eye has to travel”. A room  consisting of nothing but right angles that ends  in a straight line four feet from the floor is just plain boring! In order to give our sets life and movement we like to create a decor landscape by using asymmetrically placed items. Varying the height

Bringing the green in

Staging is all about establishing an emotional connection to a property. Attractive greenery helps give a space a cozy, warm, human feeling.
