When planning the staging design for each property, the style of the house tends to guide the furnishings that will be installed. However, keeping in mind the potential buyers, it is important that they can visualize their furniture in the house and not be overwhelmed with a specific style.
From time to time we get calls from Realtors or sellers who say they have an old house and ask if we have period furniture that can be used for staging.
Does a Craftsman home require Craftsman style furniture? Does a home built in the early 1900′s call for antiques throughout? No. Most people who are looking to move to stylized or century homes prefer to keep the furniture they already own. This is just one reason we believe that it is important to stage with a mix of styles in our designs that appeal to the way buyers will actually live in a home.
Here are a few photos from a home built in 1913 that we recently staged in NE Portland. Our client, who recently moved out of the state, said that “the feedback has been universally amazing.” By blending various design styles that all work together, the potential buyers can imagine living in this home, instead of getting the impression that it is trapped in time.
A lighter wall color along with modern art and simple decor make the original architecture come to life.
Using one primary accent color in an otherwise neutral color palette allows a buyers eye to effortlessly take in each space without being distracted by the furnishings.
