The homeowner REALLY didn’t want me to remove her favorite bed canopy that was draped in dark blue gauze! Styled & Staged knew that the structure not only made the room feel smaller but it was also a dust collector. Buyers want to know that the house is dust free, airy and clean. Once it was removed the homeowner loved her ‘new’ room and probably won’t put it back up in her new house 🙂 Being firm can be the hardest part of being a stager. You never want to offend homeowners and we always have their best interest in mind.
Once the canopy was removed you could actually see the nice windows and the window treatment that was hiding behind the gauze. Removing some of the furniture also opened up the space. The walls had never been painted so a fresh coat of neutral tan was exactly what it needed. We pulled the colour from the window treatments and carpet that are staying with the house. We used the homeowners artwork from another room for a pop of colour.
