Staging is specific type of design that makes a property sell more quickly and at the highest possible price.  Staging is actually the opposite of custom interior design in that the owner's (or designer's) personal taste is not a factor; the house must be designed so that everyone that walks in has a positive reaction.


When staging, we try to the greatest return on the seller's investment by emphasizing the good points of a house in the most cost effective way.   The level of staging should be consistent with the architecture, quality of construction, and price point of the property so it projects the right image.  Staging may include decluttering, furnishing, decorating, remodeling, or re-purposing, or replacing existing furnishings.


We specialize in the staging of new construction homes and renovations. These are some of our most successful staging projects.
