Each week after Russel posts his Golden Oldies, I read through them and reblog those that I can since it gives the original author some extra Google juice, a few extra points, and usually a great big smile. Smiles are important in today’s world.

I always disable comments on reblogs out of respect for the original author who did all the work. If you would like to leave a comment, click on the link below and leave your comment with Maureen who deserves your support with your comments.

Are you selling a home in Portland Oregon and want to make sure it appeals to potential buyers?  Consider using a professional home stager to help you prepare your home to make it irresistible.  We offer easy cost-effective home staging tips in the form of a home staging consultation proven to reduce market time or "hands on" staging to make sure your home shows beautifully for buyers.

Here's a home staging tip that we often share with our clients .... Color is one way to make a big impact for a small investment!  Using color helps buyers make an emotional connection to a home.  Color can influence a buyer's mood and bring back good memories as well.

In these Before & After photos you'll see how a bland, plain-vanilla space was transformed into rooms that appeal to both parents and kids ... the color makes it come alive and says "your child will love living in a room like this."

In the room above, using primary colors added life to a white, sterile space that the builder wanted to show as a child's room.

In the photo above, the listing broker asked us to stage this room as a child's bedroom since the target buyer was a family with young children (this home had only 2 bedrooms) and the home had been on the market vacant for nearly a year.  Color helped the room come alive -- resulting in a quick sale after staging!

In the example above, we used the sheets in the comforter set to make an impromptu headboard as well as valances for the windows -- to add more color to this room.  This home sold in just one month!home staging portland oregonportland Oregon home staging company
