Formal Living Room Can Double As A Patio.

Home Stager with Selling By Design-Staging

A few weeks ago I wrote a home staging post from Fresno CA, called:

We Just Want A Few Pictures On The Walls. Lite Staging?

I thought I had covered the topic, but realized after seeing an episode on HGTV's House Hunters that I had missed something. I know that neither HGTV, nor the show House Hunters is responsible for the very lite staging done here. This one is probably ( or aledgedly) done by the homeowner or real estage agent.

As a home stager writing to other home stagers, as well as realtors (who are way to savy to do this) I don't think I need to comment or editorialize, exept to say that I was rendered speechless.

The formal living room.

I have those same outdoor chairs, on my patio. Maybe I should put them in my living room too?

I've been creating my own version of bad staging photos recently.  Found another one today that looked as if they had picked up things at a yard sale, thrown them in a corner and called it a day.  Leave it empty if you can't do better than this.

Oh now that is just sad, LOL!  I'm not sure what impression they are trying to create here, LOL.

Hi Sharon. I don't know either. I had to actually put the tv on pause so I could see if I had imagined it.
