Occucpied Home Staging Project 2hours before Photo Shooting

August 16, 2010 | Barbara's Blog

Design2Sell recently consulted with the Homeowner to prepare this Marietta Property for Sale. We only had 2 hours before the preliminary Photo shooting, so here is what we did.

Living Room BEFORE


One proplem area was the Great Room, we suggested to create a conversation area around the fireplace and to remove the oversized Lounge chair, and take our all childrens furniture. added an unused Wicker chair in the Dining room brought in a coffee table from the garage and voila…

Final suggestions: Replace TV & Wicker chair with the matching arm chair. Add some accent pillows

Great Room AFTER






The pictures below show that small changes in this bedroom can make an impact. A nice comforter set and some accent pillows can transform the whole feel of a bedroom suite.

Bedroom Before



Comforter set and pillows, the best investment for a bedroom!


Masterbed AFTER








Final suggestion: add 1-2 pictures above headboard.

(Not shown)
Remove TV and clear top of dresser, add a nice runner and plate with candles instead.
