HATE this color!
Could I just give her a simple pricing quote for the staging? Nooooooooo....I had give her my opinion. I can't stage a house when there are obvious problems that need to be addressed.
This house suffers from poor paint color choices. (Again, I reinterate poor paint colors for selling.) The Family Room is the first room you enter.
Black for Drama!
I also recommended that the staircase banisters and railings be painted because they look dingy, are dinged and dated.
For drama, I would paint them black to coordinate with the fireplace insert, the chandelier in the dining room and the Ventian Gold granite countertops in the kitchen.
The owners are going with the trim-white color. It is the more conservative route and will, no doubt, be a vast improvement.
Nicely Updated Kitchen & Spacious Dining Room
The good news is I will be vignette staging the house after it is repainted. The bad news is the owners weren't receptive hearing any advice on color. The owners decided to repaint
all the rooms using the neutral color beige they repainted the kitchen. (The kitchen walls were Kelly Green before it went on the market.)
The realtor told me, "They have leftover paint."
And, that's ok--at least that color in the Family Room is going away....
Look at This Big Porch
Have to show you the great screened porch and large fenced back yard. Somebody is going to be very happy in this house!
