Is it Tacky or Tawdry?

I staged a vacant house where remodeling was recently completed.  However, the owners didn't get a chance to use this new space due to an unexpected job change to another state.  Plus, in order for their house to show well, they had the interior painted,  a new concrete slab poured, and landscaping done. Yes, [...]

A Re-Designed Living Room

Living Room This homeowner changed her living room furniture about 5 years ago.  She found some pieces she liked, but never really felt it was perfect.  That's what happens sometimes when we purchase items that are "good enough," at the time, but don't hit the target.  It's the same way with buying clothes. You [...]

Two Contrasting Staging Appointments

  Premiere Home Stagers went to two consultation appointments in the same day which could not have been more different. The morning appointment was an occupied consultation for a very large, expensive, custom-built home.  The homeowners had businesses in the home design realm.  And yet, their realtor suggested a third-party go through their house and [...]
