Remember me?  Yes, I'm still alive and staging here in Montreal. It's been some time since my last post but I have been keeping busy and enjoying the beautiful summer we are having.  Hope you are up to the same.

Although the summer months are typically a little slower for the staging industry, Home Harmony has managed to keep busy with staging and organizing for Montreal area residents.

Here are a few pictures of a recent project. These home owners are relocating to the Toronto area and their Realtor called us in to stage their lovely home. Having 4 teenage children made it difficult for this Mom to get anything more than laundry done!  Home Harmony was able to wrap things up in a 1/2 day staging.

 

 

Removing the wallpaper border in this kitchen made a HUGE difference. The colour of the paper was only enhancing the orange tone of the wood which was not a good thing for this somewhat dated oak kitchen.

 

 

Although this family room is quite large the dark furniture and accessories were srinking the room. We added the rug we found in the dinning area, drew back the curtains and removed the lacey ones under that didn't with this model look. We also removed some wall deco that was visually cluttering the space.

 

Using what we removed from the family room below we were able to enhance this beautiful bedroom with more jewel tone accessories. We relocated the dresser to the far side of the room because it was hindering the bedroom door from opening wide.

Liz,

All the changes you made look fantastic.  The kitchen looks so much better without the border, the family room looks great with the rug to lighten up the room.  Glad to hear you have a lot of staging lined up...you are really a fabulous stager Liz.

Who could forget "Lovely Liz"................so good to see you, and great job of staging.  That border was pretty hideous to say the least.  Glad to hear you're keeping busy.  Don't be a stranger.

Liz.. no worries my friend. There are times when we need to focus on other things. That is the beauty of AR. You always have friends. I have a huge sign near my computer that says "CHECK AR". I "try" to get on at least 4 times a week if I can. Your staging looks Fab!

Welcome back Liz.  Being busy is a great reason for being away.  Love the changes that you made in this home.  I love seeing blogs that remind me that changes don't need to be BIG to make things better!

Welcome back!  Don't you love finding something in one room that's not working and shifting it to another room where it's perfect?  I love the rug in the family room.  Nice job!

Nice to meet you Liz, I've only been blogging since the end of May so I am a newbie to AR, but not to staging!

Thanks everyone for stopping in to visit. It's tough to keep on top of things these days and AR seems to be on the back burner at the moment.

Hope you are all enjoying your summer and keeping as busy as you would like to be.

I really plan to get back on track in September ... stay safe till then and make the most of what summer has to offer.

Till then,

Liz
