Mission Impossible? Not for a STAGER!!!

By
Home Stager with A Wonderful Space, LLC

I decided to accept an impossible mission because a friend was needing my help. So, I grabbed my camera and my tape measure, and jumped in my Jeep!

 

 

My mission? Enhance the showings on a newly built $1.3 Million home.

The challenge:

Feedback from showings is that the main living area is too dark, and the kitchen is too modern.

MY challenges:

  • The client is a friend
  • The budget is TINY
  • A recent tornado in our area has made rental furniture scarce
  • There is a ton of dark wood in this space

 

Here is what I had to work with:

I knew I needed a powerful weapon to complete this mission. I looked into my staging arsenal, and the answer was easy!

Hi Elaine- Red is such an energetic color, and the your accents look great! Did you take your "inspiration" from the pendant lighting fixtures? Kathy

Thanks, Michele! Now, I just keep my fingers crossed! If all goes well, I could wind up staging ALL the homes he builds, AND all the listings for his agent!!! There is a lot riding on this one!
