This past weekend I helped a new client, Eva, prepare her home to put onto the market for sale. She has a beautiful, sun-filled home that she just wanted me to ‘dress up pretty’ before it is officially listed on the market. Here is a picture of her kitchen before:

I had to work with this blue:

I found a great rug for only $14.99 at Home Goods:

Which I used to bring color in the room:

Eva also had a vibrant yellow bathroom:

That I calmed down a bit with a pretty shower curtain:

There was one bedroom upstairs that looked very old and dated. I had her paint the one room in the Ben Moore Palladian Blue color:

This color is so beautiful, it needs no other props in the room.

One area of the home I notice that is often overlooked is the closet:

Potential buyers do not want to see your old quilts, towels, mattress pads, etc. in the closet. Eva needed to keep just a few items in the closet. Instead of leaving the clothes all spread out:

I just brought all the pieces together and placed the best looking piece on the top:

The closet looks much neater now and shows how large it actually is.

I also laid a few bright Welcome mats at the home’s entrance which really brightened up the area (which of course I forgot to take pictures of). We spent under $100.00 for everything and I think it looks great.

Does anyone recognize this picture?:

It was left at the house stored away in a closet. I am so drawn to it. I don’t know if I love it or not!

Well, Eva is very happy with the way the staging came out. So that makes me happy! Best of luck for a quick and profitable sale Eva!
