Historic Marietta Homes

There's something about historic homes that I just love. In fact, the homes, nestled along Whitlock Avenue in Marietta, Georgia, is what drew me to Atlanta to begin with. So, what an honor it was to be asked help a Marietta homeowner prepare their historic Marietta home for the market.

It was during the staging that the agent had mentioned that this home was one of the homes featured in Doug Frey's book titled Marietta, The Gem City of Georgia. It's an incredible book full of some of the most beautiful homes I've ever seen. To purchase, click here. And no, I don't receive a dime (smile).

I was at the home on Saturday putting the final touches on the staging we did and the agent had placed the book on the coffee table. Here's the photo of the home as shown in the book:

So inspired by this photo, I captured my own photo of the front door and sent it to the agent:

Here's the dining room prior to being painted and prior to the staging:

Here's the room after staging:

After glancing through Doug Frey's book, Marietta, The Gem City of Marietta, I was overwhelmed with just how beautiful the photos were. Feeling inspired, I captured the following picture of the dining room:

I'm pleased to report that this historic Marietta home actually received an offer this past Sunday during the open house!

Kathy- it is remarkable the difference the lighter color made in the dining room.  The architecture is still there, along with the charm but there is now a fresher feeling!

Kathy what a lovely cottage home with a fabulous red front door!  The interior woodwork is elegant and the tall doors enhance the space -- and naturally your stylish staging helped it sell quickly!

Hi Kathy, I love the neutral wall color in the dining room:  It just makes those beautiful high gloss wooden floors POP.  Excellent job of preparing this home for sale!  It's lovely.

Kathy, I have such love for the character of this home.  Authentic and calming. Not too many homes in my town the offers the grace and charm of this one.  I can see why it was added to this book.  Your staging complements the room very nicely.

Kathy - I absolutely love historic homes, and this one is a true beauty!  What fun to see the page in the book and then see your photo of the same front door.  Love the red colour of the door, too!  Your tasteful staging really compliments this lovely home.  Thanks for sharing!
