West Vancouver Home Staging-Before & After Photos 

Eagle Harbour is a unique area in West Vancouver. It’s a maritimer’s haven and heaven. Chances are someone who loves the ocean and appreciates boating will want to move to this gem of an area. Let’s play to that. Let’s stage a home with a specific buyer in mind.

What will you find in Eagle Harbour? There’s the beautiful Thunderbird Marina, which offers a place to moor your boat, and has winter storage. It’s located in Fisherman’s Cove, next to Howe Sound, and offers shelter to boats from harsh weather conditions. You’ll also find the West Vancouver Yacht Club’s Clubhouse, overlooking Fisherman’s Cove.

Not far from Fisherman’s Cove is Lighthouse Park, where you can go for hikes, sunbathe on the rocks or take scuba diving lessons. For avid hikers, there’s Eagle Bluffs and Black Mountain hikes, offering spectacular views.

Here are some before and after photos of a home we staged in Eagle Harbour, overlooking the marina.We worked with the home owner’s own furniture, but added art, accessories and bedding to really draw in the buyer we knew would be interested in this particular property.

BEFORE- The living room was looking a little tired, and the fireplace mantle was full of personal photos.

AFTER - We added references to the sea, with some old boating lights, coral, sailing picture and the colour blue.

BEFORE - It was difficult to really appreciate the beautiful view from the kitchen window, due to all the personal items displayed on the window sill.

BEFORE - The Master Bedroom was pretty ho-hum.

AFTER - For a cohesive look, we continued the ocean theme upstairs, where we brought in blue coloured bedding, artwork, beach glass and shells.

Of course, now that we're approaching summer, it was extremely important to dress the outdoor spaces.  This property is really all about the view, and had a lovely, tiered decking, for sun, shade, and spectacular views.

What a great area Eagle Harbour is Sally. I bet it's a lot of fun to stage in that community and bring out that maritime feel to the houses. I love the enhancements you made to that house, those finishing touches make all the difference. It's amazing what a proper staging can do to bring attention to the positive aspects of homes.

Kristine - Thanks so much.  Everyone collects too much stuff when living in a home, but when selling, it's definitely time to "edit"!  The views really are phenomenal.  Hope Lucy's doing better today...

Joanna - It's so all about the view, so maximizing the view to the ocean and mountains was paramount.

Sharon - Thanks for the endorsement!

Malcolm - I love all things nautical, so it really was fun staging this house.  Sometimes it doesn't take much for a home to really shine - thanks so much!

Hi Sally ~ This home has so many wonderful features (and the views are to die for) that were HIDDEN before you did your staging magic!  Your staging brought life and a cohesive design to each space.  What a great location!

Sally- great combination of a local post and staging.  What a view that could have been lost to the buyer if you had not opened it up.  You've shown that a Seller can accomplish quite a bit just by using their own furnishings AND by using the services of Sally Weatherley of Exit Stage Right!

Hi Sally - You've strategically made wonderful references to the super locaton of this home!  It's important to highlight key features of a house when it's on the market - and a great location is one!

Hi Maureen - By staging this property, the focus became less on personal items, and more on the space and view - thanks so much!  There were moments when it was hard to focus on the task at hand, because it was so nice outside!

Valerie - I want to live in West Vancouver, too!  Actually, my absolute favourite community is Dundarave...  ah, perhaps I need to write another post...  Lawson is a great street.  My aunt lives on Queens & 21st - talk about panoramic views!

Kathy - I love being able to use the home owner's furniture, and adding accessories.  It keeps the budget down for the seller, and yet a lot can still be achieved to better the look of the home.

Julie - Hello!  I really enjoyed bringing in some nautical pieces to really remind the buyer that this location is phenominal.

Shar - Isn't it funny?  The home owner loved all the changes we made except for the candles on the coffee table!  However, the Realtor® liked the candles, and hopefully home buyers will, too.  I could actually gaze out that kitchen window forever...

Sally, very tastefully done highlighted everything that great location can offer throughout the house without overdoing it. Love those touches of blue. My favorite is the dining table and how you opened up the view...no more destruction like vases, photos and other knickknacks on the window.

Sally-It is always great to see how you transform your spaces to totally optimize the showing power. I love the way that you targeted the right demographic...adding hints of the oceon through sea glass colors,pictures and decorations....constantly reminding the Buyers of the "Big Fish" (the water view).

Anna - Thanks so much.  I agree with you.  By simply removing the tchotchkes from the windows, the view suddenly became much more apparent.  Funny how such a small thing can have such a huge impact.

Marianne - Always nice to hear from you!  We have so many homes that are near or face the water, that I've been on a bit of a mission to find artwork and accessories that will reflect this, without being too obvious or tacky.  It's definitely a fine balance.  Nothing like placing a few subliminal messages in a home for sale...
