Add one Los Angeles home stager plus a fantastic 1928 Altadena Spanish Colonial Revival in (with an entry courtyard), the homeowners furniture, plus a few rented pieces of furniture, a Persian rug and some staging accessories et voila!
An interesting note about this lovely cottage: It was built and designed by Anna P Latham, one of the first women to be licensed as a building contractor in California. In 1928!
Here are some before and after pictures after staging. We brought in a new sofa, chair, rug, some artwork and accessories. We moved the existing furniture around to use it to best advantage. This was an inexpensive yet effective staging.

Living room after staging. Note that the fireplace was painted. The coral color was a choice the homeowner made before we were hired to stage. While I am a big fan of using color to accentuate architectural features, this was not the right color.
Note the valuted ceiling. BTW, the chandelier is lit by candlelight and is raised and lowered with a pulley system.
