Home Staging

Update your software

An easy way to redecorate and reinvigorate your home is to update your software. Accent pillows, area rugs, bedding, towels… all relatively inexpensive and easy ways to change your color scheme, and add pops of color. We use textiles in staging like a magic wand. Texture and color help to propagate a theme and create a cohesive feel throughout the entire house. Even in ultra-modern minimalist spaces, tone on tone accent pillows used in restraint give

The geometry of staging

For thousands of years mathematicians, artists, architects, botanists and countless others have discovered and rediscovered the “golden ratio” Designer Le Corbusier was a devout follower of this principle in his designs. How do we apply his theories to staging? We often run into spaces that feel awkward, and cause the home to be unappealing to buyers. This is usually because the dimensions of the rooms fall outside of this geometric sweet spot and are either long and

Home Staging Tips to Mind the Gap

Mind the gap

We often say that there is a fine line between staging and decorating. How you treat empty spaces is one of those. When decorating your home filling walls, rooms, shelves, and surfaces with your objet d’art is great! For staging purposes, we find empty spaces to be a useful tool to make a home feel more spacious, as well as help lead a buyer from room to room.

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

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…..

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

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.
