Why Staging a Previously Decorated Home is Worth The Investment

Guest Contributor: Patti Stern, PJ & Company Staging and Interior Decorating

Once you decide to sell your home, it’s time to step back, detach and look at it through the lens of today’s young buyers who are attracted to a property that feels fresh and updated. With styles and color trends constantly changing, even a home that was professionally decorated over ten years ago will get overlooked if it feels stuck in the past. Simple updates such as covering dark wall colors with a fresh coat of bright, neutral paint and introducing chic, modern accents to pair with existing furniture are the necessary ingredients to make a home ready to sell in a competitive market.

Check out some examples below of recent homes staged by our team.

For this sitting area, we rearranged antique furniture, added a neutral area rug and refreshed mantle and wall with modern accents.

We used existing furniture and bright accents – rug, pillows, wall art and lamps to give this den welcoming style.

For this master bedroom we re-painted dark brown walls with a soft grey and paired with accents to give the room a more spacious and updated look.

For this formal living room, we rearranged furniture for better flow and added simple accessories that complement the existing color palette for a more inviting feel.
