Historic Wooded Hideaway - Staging Before and After Photos

By
Home Stager with Leslie Olson Interiors

This historic home is quietly tucked away in the hills of Corte Madera, California -- though it's less than five minutes from charming downtown Larkspur. I was captivated from my first step into the light-filled living room, surrounded by original multi-paned windows and illuminated by skylights. The house may be surrounded by lush trees, but it's filled with streaming natural light.

I'll share with you some of the before and after photographs from this recent staging project (which just received its first offer this week -- woo-hoo!).

Beautiful home!  I love the "original" bath...great touch to swag the curtain back!  The master transformation is amazing...what a difference it made losing the foot board on the bed!  Love the chairs in the den and the staging of the bookcases.

Hello, Sharon! Thanks so much for your kind words. My daughter loves the character-filled "original bath" too, with beautiful stained glass windows from the turn of the century. We really didn't do much there, just clean it up and add plush towels and lavender-embroidered linen hand towels to draw the eye to the windows. The den chairs were intended to mirror the curves in the walls and brickwork. By the way, the date painted in gold behind the wood-burning stove is 1906, commemorating that this house survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake!

Thanks for visiting, Janet -- I appreciate your comments!

Leslie- the windows in this house are not to be believed!  And you took this nice house and turned it into a showcase home.  The colors compliment the outdoors and the rooms are now cohesive and not just pulled together.
