This lovely townhome had been well maintained by the original homeowners.  Upon meeting the homeowner, you could tell that she had truly cared for this home and had made many upgrades through the years. So, when it came time to advise on how to best present the home, it basically came down to removing the few remaining pieces of furniture (except for the blue loveseat – which became my inspiration on staging, the desk and chair in the office, and the beige lounger that I had moved to the lower level). Once the painting was finished, the professional cleaner came in and freshened everything up making a smooth transition for me to “set the stage.” As I mentioned, I had asked that the blue love seat remain in the home. It matched perfectly with the blue sofa that I brought in from my warehouse. The picture, rug, and pillows pulled the blue and grays together creating such a welcoming and homey feel. The large eat-in kitchen had been stylishly updated so I only needed to add the table, chairs, additional table and a few accent pieces. Moving up to the upper-level, I asked that the desk and chair remain in the office and I simply added a few accent pieces on the desk. The color of the walls and the lighting in the primary bedroom were accented by my choice of bedding and pictures. I usually don’t stage the lower level, however, I had asked that the seller’s beige lounger be relocated there and with just a few pieces – the tree, table, and lamp it showcased how this area could be used. Once again, when the homeowner saw the finished project, she exclaimed, “It looks so good, I am not sure I want to sell it now!” We did move forward with the sale and received several offers and were under contract within a few days.
