Cathy, that's just so clever!  Beautiful representation of the difference your excellent work makes!  Wish you were here in the D.C. area!

Good staging really helps . . .  although it looks like you had something nice to start with too.

Thank you, Virginia, for your kind comments!

Donald, yes it helps to have something nice to start with as were two of the three stagings shown.  The third one was a rather 'distressed' property, having been a rental for university students for the past few years...however, with some minor repairs, paint and staging this house sold the first day on the market for full asking price.

Adrian, thank you!  Yes, staging makes a huge difference and often means the difference between a sale or no sale.

HI Cathy, love the use of warm colours and touches of vibrant red and green to add life to the rooms. Nice presentation with Smilebox as well.

Thank you Tori.  I agree...even a small space looks so much larger when properly furnished.

Carhy.  Nice job and you gave us so many photos to really see the before and after work.  Than you.  BTW. There is one after photo with a whiye throw on the couch.  At first glance it looks like a big hairy white cat.  I loved it, sort of trompe d'oiel (sp?).  Darn, there goes my Ottawa French.

Thank you Valerie!  I had to go back and have a look at the photo with the white throw...and you're right, it does look like a white hairy cat!  It wasn't intentional and I hadn't noticed that before, so thanks for pointing it out to me:)
