Contemporary Furnishings Meld Past and Present in a '50's Style Rambler.

By
Home Stager with Debra RowleyInterior Staging

This house was built in the early '50's and had the typical beige sandstone fireplace and built-in light wood cabinets. it was in desperate need of painting, re-carpeting, and wood floor refinishing.

Even after the cosmetic improvements were made, the dated look of the house was further improved upon by staging it with contemporary furishings that complimented the house's original design.

Very nice, what did you do to the bookcases on either side of the fireplace. The color is so much better in the after shots. Please let me know. Kym

Debra I love what you did with the rooms.  Buyers will now be able to see themselves living in this house.  It is so much warmer and more inviting.  Great job.  Betty
