The backyard is a great space to interact with friends and family as it’s an extension of your home. In Southern California we can live outside 90% of the year. Take advantage and entertain! Add some comfy chairs, a sectional or sofas β˜€οΈ

Adding subtle colors to this countertop was a great way to stage without the accessories taking over the space. And they enhance the upgrades!

We love educating realtors and sellers which is why we want to point out that the recent article πŸ“° in the @orangecountyregister including staging grossly underestimated the cost for staging here in OC. The median price is actually between $3k – $4k, not $675. 😬 Unfortunately, most national polls aren’t accurate to our area. Whether you’re thinking about selling or offering staging to your clients, know that the return is often well worth the investment of staging πŸ’°Let us know in the comments if you have any questions!

We love designing for coastal homes 🌊🏠 but rather than too beachy, we prefer a coastal elegance. Some pieces and elements from the coast tied into the space. For this home we’re using stones on the bottom of the shower and accents of sea glass throughout. Can’t wait to see this one come to life!

When designing and staging, we love using metals instead of or to complement art.

Adding texture with the bar stools and accessories really make this upgraded kitchen even more stunning 😍

When staging highly upgraded properties, only minimum accessories are needed so buyers can see the upgrades they are purchasing. Adding too many accessories or bold colors will distract the eye from seeing the beautiful upgrades. ❌ Older homes may need more accessories to detract from the out dated space, but upgraded homes…keep it minimal πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

By grounding this space with darker pieces of furniture, finishes, and accessories, it helped balance the kitchen into the living space πŸ›‹πŸ–Ό

I LOVE using my spheres when staging homes! On a coffee table or book case…they’re even more fun when used in repetition!
