Altadena Home Staging - Pasadena Home Stager Scores a Home Run

By
Home Stager with Moving Mountains Design Home Staging, Pasadena, CA

We staged this beautiful occupied Altadena home on Tuesday of last week. When I met with the Realtor and homeowner on Thursday afternoon, I was told that they already had an offer coming in after the first open house!

The homeowner was using the livingroom as the master bedroom. I won't show before photos of that room because it was heaped with everything they were pre-packing. Here's an after photo of the livingroom after staging:

Not surprised the home already received an offer Michelle! Great job!

I appreciate & respect that you did not show the 'before" here due to the nature of the pre-packing & privacy of that.  I have given the "before" photos a different thought of late as I have been asked by a seller or two not to post before photos of their properties while selling.  While it's great for seeing the results of what staging can do for a space, ultimately it's our duty to respect our client's wishes for privacy. The after photos here are superb!

Thank you Cathy Lee. I'm glad you lovely-love it!

Karen: Since the bedroom/livingroom had already been torn apart by the homeowner in preparing to move, it really wasn't a good representative "before" picture. I've never had a seller ask me not to post a before photo, but I won't anyway, if I think it will make anyone uncomfortable.

Thank you Kathy Burke. It was actually under a Million bucks, which in Los Angeles, for a house with all these features, is no mean feat.

Thank you, Carole. Everything seemed to fall into place.

Thanks, Donna!

I love the use of the orange accessories.  They really make the room shine!  What an improvement over having the room shown as a bedroom!

That color palette is just delicious - love the rug!  How important to show each room as it was originally intended!  Julie

I fully agree, Tammie.

Sharon: Orange is one of my favorite colors. In Feng Shui, it is considered very energetic, causing movement and change. Also, it photographs well and makes rooms pop. Rooms with reds and oranges really stand out on the MLS.

Julie: The rug is beautiful. It actually appears more olive to the eye. And it really went well with the olive drapes already hanging in the room. I have no doubt that the home wouldn't sell quickly if they kept that room as the master bedroom and showed the house without a living room.

I too love the colors you chose here Michelle! It's no wonder it sold quickly once you convinced the seller to redefine the room to a more appropriate space.

Hi Michelle!  You are incredibly talented!  I'll bet that the sellers are ready to stay after such a major conversion!  Love the colors and the mood--very inviting and I'm sure will lure a quick buyer for your sellers.

Are you SURE you won't be moving to Charlotte soon??!!

Anne: I'm a tangerine girl, myself. Thank you.

Thank you Debe! The sellers were really excited when they saw the house when we finished. They're staying in the area but needed a bigger house with more bedrooms. I'm hoping they'll hire me to work on their new home.
