Over the years, bit by bit, we grew as company and expanded by adding more team members and services. Now after ten years of being Seattle Staged To Sell, time has come for us to add “& Design” to our name.
Seattle Staged to Sell had the privilege to stage a beautiful house nestled in the Sammamish area. The new construction transitional home is tucked in a quaint neighborhood surrounded by lush greenery, which inspired us to bring the outdoors in! While the home has a very classic look we were able to choose neutral colors for the furniture pieces with touches of blues, greens, and hints of yellow to make the inside of the house pop.Read more
For those of us who live in Seattle, we know that a Mt. Baker home means having views of Lake Washington, I-90 Bridge, and the majestic Mt. Rainier. Furthermore, when it comes to Seattle Seafair, these homes offer a front row view to the Blue Angels air show.
When we saw this house for the first time, we knew that we needed to keep the design simple, sophisticated and calm to allow for the stunning views of the lake and mountains to standout. We selected neutral pieces and added a bit of pop with color.Read more
Have you heard the saying that eyes are the doors to the soul? For me windows, like eyes, do the same for houses. The large windows combined with all the natural reclaimed wood products gave this Wedgwood house a soul and voice of it’s own.
Windows like this bring the outside in with this relationship they create a balance. This balance is what promotes a sense of peace and tranquility, the reasons why we are drawn to these types of spaces.Read more
As designers and home stagers, we often partner with builders and real estate investors assisting them with their projects in various ways. These projects can be as extensive as selecting all the finishes and products for custom built homes, selecting exterior and interior colors or coming up with the best home staging strategy for each home.
For us, being design junkie it is always exciting to see the progress and the transformations of each project. One of our recent staging projects for a real estate developer, Enfort Properties, just took our breath away. Every aspect of this project had been done in perfection.Read more
After years of being in the home staging business (since 2005) and meeting with countless of homeowners, we can easily identify what types of home-sellers/clients we work with. Usually, the buyers fall into three groups, however some are intermixed between groups while others who travel from one group to another.
As home stagers, we work hard to educate our clients and help them see and understand that we are their partners. We want them to get the most ROI of the sell of their homes. The key to communicating this point effectively is to know what kind of home-sellers we are dealing with. We understand that not everyone sells a house for happy reasons, and we strive to meet our clients where they are and to help them become more informed and savvy home-sellers.Read more
Excitement, a happening place, wonderful choices of restaurants, shopping for that unique piece, and gourmet chocolatier are few ideas that comes to mind when Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle is mentioned. Capitol Hill is part of Seattle that is always buzzing with excitement and never goes to sleeps.
Brix condominium is one of those special Capitol Hill condominium building that is in the heart of all of the energy and excitement. Located on Broadway, one doesn’t need to go far to find any of the special places mentioned above. What makes this building unique compared to other building in the same vicinity is the way it feels like a sanctuary, despite it being in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. This particular unit, was especially a gem since it was a corner building with the views of the Mt. Rainier.Read more
The Green Lake neighborhood is known for its charming houses. This particular house had great bones to it and we just wanted to update and prepare it for sale.
Our solution: painting the walls in a beautiful neutral warm color. We selected Camouflage paint by Benjamin Moore. The second step was to select furniture pieces that were more modern. After updating the house with paint and preparing it for the market, this house was ready for the targeted buyers, who we had identified as a young professional couple.
This living room was narrow, especially since the front door opened into it in the middle. Therefore, we decided to face two love seats in front of the fireplace which showcased an ample sitting area for this space. The sofa table also suggested an entry space. Our choice of incorporating a geometric mirror added interest and emphasized the fireplace as a focal point.
This room previously was painted in a loud orange. Camouflage paint created a peaceful and tranquil bedroom. It also worked with the wood floors and the white painted trim. We kept it neutral by selecting a neutral bedding. A bit of black accent color made everything pop.
This space was a wasted space in the basement by the storage area. It was spacious enough that we decided to add a function to the area so the home buyers could envision a use for the space. The result was a welcoming home office.
Staging Mt. Baker homes is always a blast for this Seattle home stager, especially the ones with the views. This unique Mt. Baker home sat pretty on the hill and this translates into stunning views of Lake Washington, downtown Bellevue, and the Mt. Baker mountains.
We let the old charm of the house inspire us and selected transitional pieces while also adding some vintage items. Working together with the listing agent, Michael Ackerman, we identified a young professional person/couple as the targeted buyer of this home. We kept the design simple and sophisticated and created a master bedroom, home office, guest room, and a casual lounge/reading room.
Michael Ackerman described this house as follows:
Relax on your private deck and gaze at the panoramic view from Mt Rainier to Mt Baker. Light a fire and watch the stormy weather move across Lake Washington. Hop on your bike and grab dinner in Madison Park at Cactus. This delightful home is sited perfectly above the street and boasts jaw dropping views of Lake Washington, mountains, and downtown Bellevue! The welcoming floor plan works well for entertaining and the home offers a variety of exterior deck spaces. Did I mention the views?
This Mt. Baker house with stunning views was sold within days to a young professional woman just as we had identified it.
