Vacant staging

August 30, 2010 at 1:25 pm Leave a comment

Finished up a vacant staging this week with a fantastic duo homeowner team choosing the do it yourself package, on an extremely limited budget, and creative help from U & I Home Decorating and Staging owner ME.  The whole house was freshly painted Navajo white before the consultation with U & I.  With no chance of adding color with paint, we need to get creative with vignettes and colored accessories. We want to create impact for the potential buyer to visualize what each room can be used for as well as help them see what you can do about architectural details that aren’t so useful anymore.  The large hole was once considered a grand idea in the 90’s but now with todays thin technology, that can be hung directly to the wall this huge hole needs new purpose.  Through creative staging we can show the potential buyer what they can do with this feature.  The fantastic duo team have their homework lists, my truck is packed full of vignette ideas and I am confident we have what we need.  Attached a before photo of the main space and the elephant in the room known as large size hole above the fireplace.  After shots with some inexpensive thrift store finds a canvas 48 x 48.  I covered it with some funky bright-colored fabric and viola the elephant in the room is disguised.  I used the homeowners items to create a reading area in front of the fireplace that you can visually see now that the elephant is no longer charging.  The rest of the house was simply staged with articles from the homeowners and a few colorful leased items from U & I.  The clients were putting in long work weeks and were a bit overwhelmed with their honey do list I had given them and the listing agent Christine Ornoff from Prudential Towne Realty in Chesapeake Virginia came by the house with her handy-dandy bucket full of cleaning goodies and went to town (amazing)….with a few hours of scrubbing, shining, and vacuuming the property is Sittin’ pretty and ready for open house.
