Answer: No. A few "flourishes" here and there will not increase the probability of a quick sale at full asking price.
"Vignette" Staging is not even staging, by ANY definition. In fact, it's a misnomer. When you boil down the definition of the word vignette, it basically means "a little flourish." In my 12 years as a stager, no one has ever called what I do, "a little flourish."
Staging always endeavors to upgrade the entire ambiance and perception of value of a particular property, and that is simply not achieved with a plant, a chair, a pillow, and a throw rug.
Stagers change the way light fills a room. They call on many perception-enhancing techniques to make even the most mundane 1200 sq. ft tract house feel brighter, larger, extra welcoming, more airy, and closest to a dream home than any other marketing method can. And they do it by using the right stuff to make what is already there, the actual bones and features of the house, sing soprano.

We fully stage homes because we have found statistically that the entire home staged sells approx 28% faster than key rooms only. Vignette staging can soften rooms like bathrooms and kitchens, but it does nothing to overcome buyer objections.
Our goal at Rave Home Staging is to create a measurable, marketable difference that makes the home sell faster, and creates the perception of higher value, causing the home to sell for more than if it had not been staged. Vignette Staging does not move a house toward that happy ending. Full Staging most certainly does.
