Highlights of a Home Stager: Occupied Staging… Staged and Sold!

23 Jan

These home owners weren’t getting the response they had hoped for when they put their home on the market. They asked us to come in and give the home a design detailing.


We did some decluttering, added some upscale pieces of art, and added some of our own accessories, to give the home a more organized and cohesive look.


The family had begun moving out, so some of their rooms were empty, which left potential buyers wondering, ‘What can I do in this space?’


By staging this large 3rd floor bedroom, we gave buyers a chance to see the potential in this large open space.


We are happy to say that within a few weeks of the staging the home sold!

Highlights of a Home Stager: Understated and Refined

9 Jan

Let’s take a break from bold this week, with this sophisticated row home. Black, white, and grey dominate this space from the floors, to the counter tops, to the cabinets.1007532198_9_A

Cream furniture keeps the light and airy vibe flowing, while a muted olive rug gives just the right amount of heaviness to anchor the room.



We gave the dining room some visual weight with dark wood dining table and chairs. Using a light colored rug helped keep the space feeling open.



Keeping with the monochromatic color scheme, the master bedroom has a calming, spa-like vibe. Continue reading

Highlights of a Home Stager: Statement Walls!

26 Dec

Statement walls are all the rage these days! We come across many homes that add a pop of color, texture, or pattern to the walls. Working with statement walls can seem tricky, or overwhelming, so we thought we’d share some tips with you so you can conquer that bold accent wall of your own.

This home had an entire wall of black and white demask wallpaper. We showcased it with upscale black and white furniture and a matching rug, to give the room a sophisticated cohesion.


Exposed brick is the latest home design craze. When working with brick, keep in mind is red tone for stylizing. We selected furniture with blues and creams to create a muted primary color scheme.


This home was a little less funky and a little more sophisticated. we used muted blues and browns with black and white art to showcase the exposed brick.2601 1

Painting an accent wall is an inexpensive way to add interest to your home. This luxury apartment went super bold with a black accent wall. We picked simple black and white furniture and artwork to lighten the effect the black wall creates.


A unique nook is a great place to add some pops of color to your walls!


These sellers used a bright, warm pop of color to their guest bedroom. We complimented it with a fresh white bedspread with a coordinating color scheme.


Red can be a scary color to work with. It is very bold, and for some it can be off putting. We have found that using earth tones with red creates a masculine vibe. The wood furniture and leather sofa tie in the red wall and create an almost neutral sense.

What are some tips and tricks you have for styling around an accent wall?

Highlights of a Home Stager: Pops of Red!

14 Nov

We can’t do neutrals all the time! Sometimes we mix it up with some color. Today’s color? Red!


Using red in design can be scary. It can be a very overpowering color! But when used correctly it can give your living space the pop of excitement it needs.


Red goes great with natural colors like browns and greens. The green door in this home made for a perfect compliment to the red accents.


We went very bold with the dining room. That rug would be scary for most, but countered with more wood tones, and a neutral dining chair it becomes less overwhelming.

With the open kitchen we can counteract the large pop of red in the dining room with neutral greens and an abundance of brand new cabinets.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Traditional Chic

31 Oct


While bright colors, and funky accessories are fun, they’re also very client specific. When staging a traditional home.

We stick with a neutral base of a beige sofa and wood coffee table.  A calming blue reoccurs throughout the room.

The dining room has a sleek look with upholstered dining chairs. The natural woods and sand colors complimented with pops of blue give this home a coastal cottage vibe.

Highlights From a Home Stager: Contrasts

3 Oct

Many of the homes on the market today are painted a stark white. It makes sense to leave the walls neutral for buyers, but it isn’t always warm and welcoming. An easy way to combat this is by using a monochromatic color scheme. Black and white accents create a classic modern look.


The black and white color scheme is continued throughout the entire home, with art, accessories, and furniture all creating a cohesive look.


The bedroom keeps it classic with an elegant plush rug and black and white bedding.
