This was the commet from my client today, before I even began my consultation. Although I can appreciate the value and the pieces that you have collected over the years...your home is not an art gallery and as a professional stager I need to make sure we are helping buyers focus on your home...and not your art collection.
A very difficult situation...but as a professional stager it is my job to help homeowners focus on the home and not their belongings. In the end I was able to help the homeowner realize the true purpose of staging...some pieces will be coming down and some pieces replaced. This homeowner had over 250 pieces of art to choose from, so we had a great selection to work with.
Now I'm confident that his home will show well and sell fast!
