Setting the Stage on Skyline

This past month has been a whirlwind! A good whirlwind of course! We've had a lot going on and on top of that, two homes came up that need to be staged. "No" has never been in my vocabulary so that meant it was time to load up the U-haul and prepare to move! 

Staging Skyline: The house on Skyline boasts over 2,500 sqft, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, two fireplaces, and a large bonus space with french doors out to a backyard that is your own private sanctuary. The home was vacant so when I came in, it wasn't a matter of de-cluttering the space or re-arranging existing furniture. Instead it was taking a space void of personality and creating a welcoming environment focused on capturing someone's heart and allowing them to visualize calling this space home. 

Instead of staging the whole home, we focused on the main living areas: living room, dining room, office and bonus room. One thing I love about this house is the number of windows in the space and who doesn't love multiple fireplaces. Click through the before pictures to see how the space started: 

After touring through the house for the first time, my mind immediately started developing the staging plan and I never go anywhere without my notebook so I jotted a few notes down. Then it was off to the races; time to start tagging items in the warehouse.

Weather has been a little tough and unpredictable this month. You can imagine my enthusiasm when we were loading the U-haul and the sky broke into an immediate down-pour followed by a hail storm. Yes, those little white specks in the picture are huge pieces of hail!


Needless to say we took a short break until the weather subsided before we finished loading up the U-haul and then it was off to stage. It took it a couple of hours to complete the staging process, but I loved the way it came together! The living room went from cold to cozy. The kitchen and dining room are ready to entertain and the bonus space became the perfect game room! Click through the slide show to see all the after photos.

There will be an Open House this Saturday, July 25th from 1pm-3pm so if you are in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by and see this beauty in person!
