For many homeowners, finding ways to boost a home’s value without spending a ton of money can be tricky. There are several small projects you can take on that will improve your house in terms of aesthetic and updates. Though with some of these, there is no guarantee that the value will increase should you decide to sell down the road. Bigger projects require funding, not to mention quite a bit of time and effort, and you might need to hire a contractor. Fortunately, there are some easier ways to boost your home’s value, such as creating curb appeal.
Earlier in the year, we had the pleasure of staging this gorgeous Magnolia new build. For this stage, we wanted to keep things light and neutral to emphasize the freshness of the new build. We staged the home in the transitional style for a soft look. However, we married the transitional design with some modern touches to go well with the contemporary architecture.
Home staging is not just about bringing furniture into a home. It has a lot to do with creative problem-solving. Every single home, no matter how high end, has its flaws. Therefore, home stagers have to think outside of the box to make each home look its very best. It’s our job to take the homeowners needs and constraints into mind and come up with a design that will work best for their home and help it sell quickly and for higher than asking price. This process is absolutely crucial in more dated homes. In this Bellevue rambler, we had to create a beautiful design to showcase this home’s amazing potential.

To complete our series of blog posts on our 2018 interior design predictions, this week we will discuss eclectic design. Designing your home in the eclectic style is probably the most fun because you throw a lot of rules out the window. If you are wanting a unique look, are a couple with different tastes, or if you love the aesthetics from multiple eras and are having trouble choosing this is probably the right interior style for you.
At the beginning of February, we had the pleasure of staging this hip Wedgwood Midcentury home. The sellers had recently renovated it and we wanted to target young couples buying their first family home. We staged in an affordable style that mimicked some Midcentury elements but looked updated and hip to appeal to young homebuyers.
For this week’s Staging Spotlight, we will tour this amazing Highland Drive mansion in Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood. This stunning luxury home is on the market for $3.75 million.

Built in 1929 in a neo-Tudor style, it encompasses 8,226 square feet. It boasts 4 bedrooms, 3.75 bathrooms, and an attached four-car garage. We decided to stage this gem in the transitional style for a timeless and elegant decor.
We’re back discussing our interior design predictions for 2018. We previously went into detail on how to add color to your decor (click here to read).

The rule is there for a reason, patterns look awful together if paired incorrectly. Finding the right balance is key to keep your decor looking tasteful. Though tricky to accomplish, we’re here to help you nail this design trend in your homes.
While we may be named Seattle Staged to Sell, we stage homes outside of the city of Seattle too. We stage in various cities in the Greater Seattle Area, so if your home or listing isn’t in Seattle, don’t worry, we got you covered! We stage many homes on the Eastside, including this luxurious Bellevue Remodel. As we take you on a tour, you’ll see that you cannot tell that the house was built in 1955 because of its very elegant, contemporary interior.
