Data shows that homes that are staged sell much faster than un-staged homes. Professional stagers and designers know how to arrange your rooms to highlight the assets of your home, and camouflage the flaws.

Here is a home we just staged for clients of ours.

Staging day one…painting, and furniture removal

To stage this room we…

  1. Painted the room (Farrow & Ball: Borrowed Light)
  2. We removed most of the furniture
  3. We replaced the coffee table with a larger table that grounds the space
  4. We re-hung all the art to the right height and coordinated the subject matter (all art about the coast of Maine)
  5. We added coastal touches as the home is a block from the water and people want to buy the coastal feel! The Barn Pottery pillows add a lot to the space without a spending a lot!
