Stylish Occupied Home Staging in Pasadena, CA

Staging An Occupied Pasadena Home With Art & Accessories

Here's some photos from our latest Pasadena home staging project. Moving Mountains Design was hired by the homeowner/listing agent to "add the icing" to this beautiful home. As this was an occupied home staging, we used the homeowner's existing furniture and some accessories, and brought in art work, silk plants and additional accessories from our extensive inventory. We were very fortunate that the homeowner had some lovely pieces for us to stage with.

Michelle,

 The house looks beautiful! So, did you choose the paint colors or were they already in the home? Whatever the case, they look great! Do you use a professional photographer? These photos are fabulous.

Aloha Michelle,

Here is a great example where interior design trumps staging. Love the silver Louis XIV chaise with the black & white upholstery. I'm imagining that the black pattern is slightly raised velvet on white muslin. The black piping on the valances matching the lamp shades and the intimated look of the bed frame creates a wonderfully tailored and elegant look to the bedroom. le colour chocolat c'est manifiques, tres bien!

Peace,

Kathy: Thank you.

Holly: The paint colors were already in place and I didn't have a problem with them. They're perfect for the style of house and the market. I take all my own photos. Thank you.

Aloha Kimo:Merci! As I said earlier we had a lot of great material to work with. Actually too much great material. We removed many pieces, accessories and personal items and rearranged what was left. The homeowners hired me to help them remove the excess, rearrange what was left, then accessorize using both their things and my inventory and add art workwhich was conspicuously absent.

The whippet works well with this Hollywood Regency style. Regarding the fabric, it is actually a brocade, no velvet was harmed in the making of those pillows:o))

Michelle,  I am an agent but am just beginning a second business in staging with my daughter. I am going to hold on to these photos to remind myself as to what I want to aspire to in my staging career.  Unbelievably well done!

Love the photos, love the style and love the way the post is presented.  All "text-book" excellent!

Is the brown in the bedroom the same brown as in the foyer?  And, a follow-up, if I may, (no I've not been watching Presidential press conferences, just nuts I guess! <grin>) Does the dark border in the marble floor match the Bittersweet walls in that foyer?

[I'm asking because we've been recruited to go live in a modern house and I'm trying to find ways to bridge the gap between it and the traditional homes in its neighborhood.  Live Staging ++ I guess.]

Juliet: The brown in the bedroom is a little lighter and a little redder -Barrista AF-175 from Benj. Moore. The marble floor in the foyer is a black border with a white field with grey veining. Very sophisitcated. The black/white/brown combination also appears in the bedroom and the family room. It works in this house because the house has high ceilings and lots of tall windows. The rich colors won't work as well in a house with the standard 8' ceiling and average windows. Way too dark.

BTW, I would call this sytle Hollywood Regency FYI.

Glad you like it!

Simply Stunning Michelle! It's so much FUN to have great materials to work with, but if you don't know what to do with them, they mean nothing. I must say, the talent you possess is simply much more than just "icing". www.debrasdesigningdetails.com

Lisa: We were indeed fortunate. But having the home staged was a wise move on the part of the homeowner. They did many of the preparations after receiving my recommendations during the initial consultation. Then we came back in and whipped everything into shape and tied it all together with artwork and accessories.
