Home Staging Westwood Massachusetts

Home Stager with Interiors by Marianne Cherico


                 Home Staging Westwood Massachusetts



When Cindy Hansen of Gibson Sotheby's International Real Estate asked me to stage this grand English Tudor Manor, I was thrilled. This 7300+ square foot home on 2.36 lush acres of land is both welcoming and elegant, filled with grand surprises throughout.

Already appointed beautifully, it was my job as a home stager to make sure that this lovely home was edited appropriately so that pictures looked amazing online, where most Buyers start their search.

We also wanted to make sure that we added color with soft furnishings and staged all rooms to draw Buyers in.

Working on this Home Staging Westwood Massachusetts was made so easy since these wonderful Sellers enjoyed shopping to make these rooms shine.

Guided by my suggestions in the home staging consultation the Sellers took this stunning turret room from this:

                            Before Staging

                                 To This:


Simply by editing and adding in some color with pillows, blanket,rugs and accessories made a huge difference. Much more interesting in pictures (and real life).

Here is another transformation in this Home Staging Westwood Massachusetts:

                            Before Staging


      Here I simply had the Sellers remove some items so that this luscious room becomes the focal point. As you can see, we removed items such as the extra coffee table and end tables as well as extra items on the coffee table. This opens up the room and the "negative space" helps create a more interesting picture. See how even editing pillows makes a dramatic difference.



The "dance" in staging is to keep things warm and inviting but simple, to show off the architecture of the home as well as the spacious rooms. It is important to know when and what to add and when and what to remove. 

Other things to keep in mind when staging is the scale of the room, how a Buyer enters a room (what they see visually from the first moment they enter) and of course what angles a photographer is going to look at for great pictures.

Here is a short video clip of some AFTER STAGING shots of this Home Staging Westwood Massachusetts

This home has some great architectural features.   Their is a dramtic difference in the before and after in the bedroom.  It really makes the room look larger and more inviting.   Staging should help this seller get this property sold.

Unbelievable the way you can declutter and rearrange to create an entirely new vide to a home.  You are obviously the expert.

Marianne ~ what an amazing home!  After your staging it looks so much more appealing for potential buyers.  I'm sure it was fun to work in a home with such interesting architectural details, which your staging really enhanced.

Warm, inviting and simple are true words to use when staging a home. The buyers love simple becasue their minds will redecorate when they are in the home. They are not confused with someone else's ideas. Super blog.

Marianne - That's a lot of square footage!!!  Love the changes you made.  That green rug in the girl's room really breaks up the big space in the room, adds colour and fun.  Great job!
