Lake Living

Sometimes I feel like living anywhere but Seattle. Take me away. We loved this lake side listing which briefly did take us out of Seattle for the day and landed us at Lake Tapps. And a beautiful sunny day of staging is rare this time of year. The listing agent requested a bit the Chip and Joanna Gaines vibe and the rest is all our own. 

We don't usually stage so far out of the city but a few things came into play when we said "Yes!". First of all, who can say no to a listing agent who is a working mother of 4 very young kids? If she can do it-we can do it. Secondly, we got to stage her very 1st listing as a new agent and that felt great to be a part of something big. Thirdly, and yes, back to getting out of Seattle, we needed a break from our city. 

This listing is by Jessica Yost for Keller Williams of Puget Sound, the photos are by Andrew Webb for Clarity NW and the killer staging is us!

Log Cabin Chic

I tapped into our staging team for shopping tips. It's fun to see what everyone is into. Right now on Kristen's mind is a 2nd home. Of course we have all weighed in on how it should be decorated because that's just what we do. Loving her inspiration photos and her vision.

Get our Look!

When I feature the "Get Our Look!" series I try to find the exact or similar items. You do not need the same piece to create a similar vibe. It all works and plays together. We sometimes find one-of-a-kind items from homeowners, designers, and other staging companies that want to sell their pieces. We have even traveled to LA to fill a trailer and haul it back to Seattle. I hope you enjoy seeing how we can put a room together. Click and shop!

We love staging for our friend and client Tiffany. She sends some great jobs our way. Listing by Seattle Home Group , fab photos by Sean Henderson from 3DRE.

Happy Shopping Weekend!

We had such a great response when Katie made some gift selections here that I asked her for more. And she delivered! This is definitely the more girly feminine side of her. I have a couple of things from this list picked out for the girls in my life. Click and Shop!

Magnolia Home | Pier 1

Many of us have been watching HGTV's Chip and Joanna Gaines' show Fixer Upper. I enjoy seeing how Joanna stages each of the remodeled homes. She has her distinct signature and she pretty much stays in her lane despite all the home decorating trends. Both Target & Pier 1 have her Magnolia Home Collection. Here are some of the items from her new line that caught my eye. Many pieces are only found online and some have free shipping! Click and Shop!

Hello Weekend! Hello Shopping!

As soon as we touchdown anywhere USA the inspiration and shopping begins. I asked my sister Tara to share some of her gift ideas for the men in our lives. With 2 sons and years of shopping experience I think she has this drill down. Click and shop:

Staging New Construction

This beautiful home was built by  Kendall Homes and listed by Jessica Loutsis for Coldwell Banker Bain.

REDFIN asked and we answered!

REDFIN tracked us Stager Girls down for our secret sauce. Here is what Open House said in response to their quarry. 

White, light and bright is the goal

“White, light and bright is our goal. We stick to neutrals, wonderful textures and small pops of color. Buyers want help figuring out spaces so we show how a room can be laid out or even reinvented. Perhaps a space off a kitchen was an eating area but now we create a small family room or sitting room. We make certain we create a clean, fresh look for every space.” –

Hello Weekend!

Our newest staging recruit is actually our youngest so I thought it would be fun to see what she has to share when we talk about fall decor. You will see that Katie is into all things textured, warm, inviting, natural and very chill. I will be honest, I did not expect this vibe from her but I love it! Click and Shop from her choices!
