Hi y'all! I have some new staging pictures to share with you over the next few posts. This house is a beauty. The owner's, Holly and Joe, are dream clients. They contacted me last October about prepping their house for the Spring market. Their house was already well-maintained with beautiful furnishings. We just tweaked it so it would shine like the jewel that it is.
They followed all of the suggestions in my report. They made many updates, surrendering a great deal of time and energy, and investing a boat-load of money in prepping their house for sale. Holly and Joe GET IT! A house has to be updated, move-in ready, and staged for it to sell faster and for the best price.
Let's start with the foyer. Here is the after shot of the right side of the foyer.
This is the before picture. I always prefer a sitting area in a foyer, if space permits.
I had a couple of benches in my inventory. However their scale and size wasn't exactly what I was looking for. I don't substitute what I already have simply because it would be the path of least resistance!
I wanted the perfect bench. I found this iron beauty only a week before staging day. LOVE IT!
The pillows and the vase are from the owner's living room. See the way the feathers mimic the swirls in the bench and complement the design on the vase? I added a variety sticks in the vase and voila! a welcoming vignette when buyers enter. Plus, I staged other metal pieces throughout house for consistency.
This is the left side of the foyer. I added a few books and a plate on a stand on top of the gorgeous chest. The plate complements the round mirror and completes a nice staging 'triangle'.
The house been on the market less than 24 hours and has 5 appointments for tomorrow.
