Staging a "new" "old" home in Boulder - 07/20/07 11:36 PM
We just completed a staging job today at the Portland Place Condominiums that was a lot of fun to do. It's Victorian that was split into condominiums (each averaging 950 sq. feet). I rarely get the opportunity to stage older homes, in this case, a restored Victorian in the Mapleton Hill area. It's a great location, right off Broadway and Portland, across the street from Ideal Market and Vic's. I really love the architectural features, exposed brick, and original floors.

We rented them a few items: a (12 comments)
Neon Green and Ochre: OH MY! - 07/11/07 04:07 PM
How do you stage around Ochre and Lime Green walls? Well, I'm happy to report that we pulled it off (click to see our fab photos)! My partner Mary recently completed a staging job on a vacant home in South Boulder, which proved to be much easier than we first thought it was going to be. It was a vacant home, however the owners were still in the area and met with us during the consultation. They had made a lot of improvements to the property, including extensive landscaping and a beautiful trex deck (with hot tub!), kitchen and bath upgrades, the whole nine (21 comments)
