Design2Sell Brings Home a National Award from RESACon 2018

August 2, 2018 | Blogs, News and Press

Each year, real estate staging professionals come together from all over North America to influence and inspire one another at the Real Estate Staging Association’s RESACon. This popular conference is the real estate industry’s largest annual event where real estate stagers can grow their business and learn from industry leaders. Despite the numerous networking and educational opportunities, RESACon is also the home of the Home Staging Industry Awards banquet, where the industry’s most prestigious awards honor real estate staging proficiency nationally. We are excited to announce that this year at RESACon in Las Vegas, we received the overall 2018 Staging Team of the Year award!

“We are so honored to have been named the top staging team in 2018,” said CEO and Creative Designer Barbara Heil-Sonneck. “We’ve been proud to be included in the top 10 list of best stagers over the past several years, but we’re so pleased to have taken the top spot this year! This award is truly a testament to our talented team, from our property stylists to our logistics team.”


In addition to being named the top staging team, we also received an award for being one of the Top 10 Professional Stagers of the Year in the U.S. for vacant staging. A pioneer in bringing the most powerful home staging techniques to metro Atlanta, our team aims to tell a story with each stage it completes, giving buyers a lifestyle experience and helping real estate professionals to sell listings faster than ever. From 500 square foot condos to luxurious estates, and the hundreds of homes in between, we can assure you that we will offer homes so much more than just furniture and decor.

AT RESACon 2018, we submitted three projects for the judges’ review. Each project pictured a room that was transformed from a plain area into a jaw-dropping, eye-catching space that fit the target market’s lifestyle. One living room was revolutionized into a soft, inviting and modern environment with a fashionable tone of light gray. With white walls, there are a variety of color schemes that would make this living area come to life, but we chose a soft gray paired with darker browns for both a formal and stylish look.real estate staging

A second living room staging project that we submitted mixed and matched patterns, embraced bold colors and brought a spectacular amount of detail to the open living space. With a fireplace made of multi-colored gray bricks, we added artwork and furniture that not only created a pretty space to enjoy conversations but also to make the structure and elements of the fireplace really stand out. The coffee table and bookcase feature an exposed look for an effortlessly cool and easy maintenance design while the bold, blue sofa evokes comfort in the room.


Our third project submitted was a bedroom with a unique design. With sharp angles, a dark hardwood floor and bright white walls, we took this already incredible room and made it feel spacious, calm, neat and elegant. Our staging in this bedroom is clutter-free and stylish all at the same time. We considered that a bedroom should feel like a retreat where you can unwind after a long day and feel refreshed in the morning, but nonetheless, style and décor are also important. To make the bed look more comfortable and luxurious, we added extra accent pillows arranged in various tones and patterns, and added pops of color to the black and white room. Since the bed should be the focal point of the room, we also added a gorgeous headboard made of rustic barn wood designed in a gray color with dark tones to match the color scheme of the room.
