It is not every day that you get to stage your next-door neighbor’s house. But this is exactly the case when we staged this lovely Craftsman Style home for our neighbors who were leaving Seattle, WA. We were delighted that we had this opportunity and we went to work fast.
The updates to this home were more of a Transitional Style; therefore, we wanted to emphasize this style with our staging design by creating a “Ballard Design” and/or “Pottery Barn” looks. We brought in lots of neutrals and added pops of colors here and there.
Since we wanted to save money for our clients, we worked with the existing wall colors. I know that using neutral wall colors for staging is a “must” and this is absolutely true for most homes. However, there have been times when I have said YES to strong colors and we made the same call for this house. The key was keeping the rest of the colors neutral and repeating the wall colors.
This darling Green Lake Craftsman house was SOLD for much more than the asking price in just days with six offers. I love these kind of success stories, especially when it comes to my own neighbor’s house.
