Marin Home Staging Success: From Stark to Stunning in San Rafael

This was a staging project I did this week in San Rafael. The home is vacant and I was charged with staging the living room and adjoining dining room. As you can see from the Before pictures, the rooms were very beige - beige carpet, beige walls, beige fireplace. These are the first rooms you see when you walk into the house, and they are central in the home's floorplan. Left unfurnished, potential buyers would have very little to get excited about. Many people cannot envision a home's potential, especially if the home is on the cosmetic 'fixer upper' side. When homes are left empty, buyers tend to focus on the flaws - because there's just nothing else to look at.

This home looks a thousand percent better with your staging!  You turned the fireplace from an eyesore to a focal point.  Good luck, let us know when it sells.

Erin ~ Nicely done!  I love the pieces you used.  It definitely has a more "come on in" attitude in the afters!
