This very busy and active family needed their house staged within 24 hours!  Obviously with the time frame certain things like painting were not possible.  Styled & Staged worked very hard bringing in rental inventory for a complete transformation.

Your home should be a very personal space where you can showcase your personal and sentimental items.  However, when selling your  these items should be removed so buyers are looking at the architectural details of the house instead of your ‘stuff’.

Moving the furniture around really opened up the space and made it feel so much larger.  Adding the ivory area rug brightened up the room and gave some relief to the saturated colours on the wall.

Moving the couch really opened up the hallway and expanded the width of the room.  It also allowed easier traffic flow and almost created another sitting room in the hallway.

Adding soft lights gives a warm ambiance to a room.  Bringing in bold artwork makes it easy to incorporate more accent colours for texture, layers and interest.

Less if more.  It’s calmer on the eye to have a couple large pieces of artwork instead of lots of little pieces.  The camera doesn’t pick up details in little items so it just looks like clutter which can be distracting.

Adding large artwork gives this room more drama and impact to the dining room.  Continuing the same colour scheme makes the two rooms blend well.   Since there aren’t any drapes I gave the illusion of a wider room by hanging matching wall sconces and I balanced the room with side chairs.  Fabric runners and flowers add more texture and softness.  Adding a tall centerpiece gives height to help fill the space since there isn’t a hanging chandelier

This is a great eat-in kitchen and it just needed a bit of interest that was easily acheived through artwork and setting the table with complimentary colours.

When selling your house you want it to appeal to the masses and showcase permanent features of the house. Neutral accessories show off the fireplace and the beautiful slate hearth.  The ivory rug enlarges the space.  Using a toy box as a coffee table disperses the red throughout the room.

Adding hits of gray and black through accessories and artwork enhances the all the granite in this area.  A few pops of red carry the couch colour throughout the three areas for interest.

You never know who your buyer will be so you just want to have large, clear spaces so they can use their imagination of how they will use the room.

Replacing the TV with candles and a plant soften the room and add atmosphere.  The leather chair fills in the corner nicely and entices buyers in to a comfortable room.

Wall decals are adorable and amazing for kids rooms since they add so much personality.  However, when selling your house it is better to have simpler walls.  This room still has a lot of the ‘wow’ factor even though it is toned down a bit.

Simply moving some furniture around and removing extra tables and chairs makes this room clean, cheery and appealing and makes it feel so much larger.

When rooms are painted a dark colour and there isn’t enough time to paint a simple trick is to add light colour accents or chairs in the corners to help the space or it can look like a dark hole in the photos.
