After meeting with this home owner, (who is also a Realtor) and discussing paint colours, she was quite surprised when we said she needed to have her wall repainted a neutral beige. "Builders beige?" she said, "but that is so boring!"
Needless to say, we convinced her that the salmon colour, although a personal choice that was picked out to bring out the salmon in her chinz sofa, was probably not going to go with everybody's furnishings. Even as a Realtor, she still wasn't sure about the descision but decided to put her trust in us.
Next was convincing her that the matching valances needed to come down. Again, she was very surprised, but decided to go for it!
Because of budget, we used all of her exisitng furnishings and only added a few accessories to make the home feel light and airy.
The finished result was great. She was absolutley amazed and a huge believer now in the power of staging. She made two calls while we were there, saying that they just had to get over and see the difference. She also said she would now have no problem showing the home to prospective buyers. The home will be listed next week and she is hoping for a quick sale.
We were quite happy with the result as it can sometimes be a little difficult when we are not able to bring in all new furnishings. Her enthusiasm was so wonderful and reminded us yet again, why we do what we do!
