Styled, Staged & Sold
I am the mother of a 15+ year Meth Addict.
So, if all of this happens to the HOUSE………. what happens to the HUMAN ?
Seriously……….. he is still alive after OVER 15 years of it. I am sad and surprised.
He lives in a Motor Home and owns a CAT. (likely to cover the reason for the smell in his place ?) His lab died a few years back at the age of 9. I think he was very much exposed to the fumes and it did him in.
Like the sweet man/grandfather Robb R. states above.
” She’s not even herself anymore”
I GET THAT ! No way is he anywhere near what he was as a young person.
He lettered in Varsity Football and went to State in Track.
What is going on with these ‘well – raised’ children of ours ?
I have never seen a stager put a dead animal on the wall; those are the seller’s trophies! As far as the teepee, I don’t stage with much children’s items, but a teepee is much cuter than toys, books, posters, and other hanging things everywhere.
If you are going to gripe about a blowup bed, I suggest you look at mine. They are propped up yes, but seriously, the house was empty before; no one should be messing with the beds. True story, I went to pick up a bed in a pickup thinking I had put a real bed in the house and then when I got there it was a blowup and I could have just put the whole bed in my trunk. So blowup beds depend on the stager. Not every house sells in 2 weeks and silk green plants are so much better than nothing green. Remember the house was empty before! I use fresh flowers for the first open house, but flowers are expensive in Texas!
Great article just finish doing business with Gabriel Reyes he helped me purchase my home in East Los Angeles. Cant wait to my next trip to Best Buys. http://www.gabrielreyes.com
Agree with some but faux fur (pillows, throws, not taxidermy) is big and most people love the warmth and texture. It is not real and people know this. Air beds, I can’t really see budgeting for a full bed, box spring and mattress and moving of same for the average home. For a luxury property, I agree that a real bed is preferable. This may make staging cost prohibitive in many markets.
Beige is a fairly enduring traditional color for home interiors but butter is a more popular color in our area where winters are very rainy, cloudy and gloomy. A butter yellow color does wonders to brighten up and give warmth to a home on these types of days.
Thank You, Justin-
These are all spot on. The blow-up beds always look wavy, and not crisp. The dead animals just creep me out; their cold, glass eyes follow me around a room. I also have just never understood the whole word thing either.
I’d like to add to your list the small fake plants. Why all the plastic when a living plant can be bought for 4 bucks at TJ’s. Our homes in Seattle aren’t staged for more than 2 weeks, almost any plant will survive that long in low light.
I am helping a friend make needed improvements in her home due to water damage and need for some general upgrading. This article was very helpful in our decision making process. Thank you.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about Charlene Storozuk.
Easy to add fun accents color and change with the season – turquoise blue, cherry tomato, even violet!
Bathroom is one of the most part of the house that we want to upgrade maybe because we always have something that needs to be repair. I hate my bathroom when the flash is not working and the sink is clogged.
As kitchen is the most important part of home so we need to make it look great. Use good quality countertops, appliances, flooring to make it better. Thanks for sharing the blog.
I certainly hope there is a “speech only” option to operate smart mirrors or that they’re dust, dirt, smudge, smear, print, and steam proof among others. Thanks for posting and tell us more of what you see. A gardening robot sounds amazing.
I think this reflects the broader trend of embracing natural finishes and colors: wood tones are in, linens, and raw textiles. Beige, unlike grey, adds that same sense of natural warmth that greys and whites just don’t give.
These color schemes are terrific! How could they ever be out of style? Pairing the scheme with black and white is popular, but it still doesn’t lose.
