Staged for the Parade by four local stagers

Home Stager with Ready Set Stage


It's that time of year again when the Parade of Homes is starting.  The builders are getting ready and we are waiting for the business.  Being the President of the American Society of Home Stagers and Redesigners, Greensboro Chapter, I thought it might be fun if we worked on a project together. 

Angele Carlson of Curtain Call Home Staging, Lori Nicholson of Stylishly Staged, Kim Lee of All About Image, and myself, Chrissie Sutherland with Ready Set Stage worked together bringing our accessories and furniture to stage a home for a local builder.  We did it for him at no charge and are hoping for some future business from Paradees.  I also contacted the local paper who is featuring an article this Sunday!! 

Here are the before and after pictures...and then some.  Enjoy!!!

Hi Chrissie ~ the four of you did a wonderful job staging this Parade home!  Did you all bring furniture to use -- as well as accessories?  It would be great if you had time to write a post about how you 4 all worked together on this project, and I'm sure it would inspire stagers in other cities to take on a similar joint project .... we'd love to hear more about how you organized it, and assigned who did what, etc.

Chrissie, this is a great collaboration.  The staging is wonderful, and I love the way you used this as a marketing tool to gain more business.  That is thinking outside the box!  It must have been fun to work with three other stagers.  I agree with Maureen - would love to know more.

Teamwork has paid off Chrissie!  It will no doubt be a highlight of the parade.

Thank you all, I just posted another blog on how this all came together.  I love having the relationship with the other stagers in our area.  We all support each other fully.

Team work and hopefully you all 4 will benefit from this. Also, that is a great idea for our ASHSR Chapter, of which I am the President. We are always looking for something to do as a group. Thanks for your ideas
