Home Stager with Chicagoland Home Staging LLC ~ Re-Arrange It Interiors

Margaret Gehr, who stages homes in the Chicago suburbs through her business Re-Arrange It Interiors, and her staff staged a home for The Associated Press' Homeownership Week series.

We worked with a first time seller in Plainfield, IL, Rosemary West of RE/MAX international, and the Associated Press. It was a blast transforming the space in just a few hours. It went from uninteresting and ordinary to memorable property with pizazz. 

Different versions of the article and film have been released in many publications across the country. Here are a few:

HERE AT A FEW PICTURES:

Before: The room felt very small and it was hard to see how furniture might fit in. The all white walls made the carpet feel old and was hiding the nice white trim and fireplace.

After staging: The room felt much bigger and had loads of pizazz! The new soft color neutralized the wear on the carpet and turned the focus back the rooms best asset..the fireplace.

Just beautiful work as always.  The curtains sure inspired your work and the lime colors pop perfectly.  And the article is terrific.  I love that your blouse matched the color scheme of the house!!! =)
