Staging Is Fashionable

                                                        Staging is Fashionable

            This is not an article on how cool and hip staging is, but we stagers do think that.

     Rather I am focusing on the aspect of properly dressing a home. In the world of fashiodressing upn for women, often the basic black cocktail length dress is touted as the ultimate in versatility. A basic well tailored men’s suit in a neutral color would fulfill the same role for men.  With the basic piece such as the black dress, the addition of jewelry, heels, a crop jacket and a purse would form a complete outfit. Change the earrings to diamond drops, the purse to a clutch, the heels to sky high Manolo Blahnik’s and you have changed the whole effect.

    The same is true of staging a home. If you start with a neutral basic background which includes the wall covering, floor coverings. and large furniture pieces – you have your basic black dress. Add in your accessories with a mix of patterns and colors, a floor rug and artwork and the “fashion tone” of the room has been set.  Change the accessories to a glamour mode with some sleek silver picture frames and a mirrored accent table and you are in the bling. Minimize the details and add in contemporary art and a nubby throw to add texture and warmth and the room is far different.

       We stage for prospective buyers – just like you dress for the particular occasion.

We stage to enhance the property, not to highlight the accessories. The overall effect is pleasing, in balance, not too much and not too little. Just right – like a little black dress.

Kathleen great post. The analogy says it all.  Take the simple and neutral and with a few small things.  Impact.

You put it well - too often stagers tend to take the impact too far and then the home gets lost.

The focus is on the property.
